National Missing Kids Organization Joins Search for Hoggle Children (VIDEO)
Brad Dennis, director of search operations for the foundation, said his organization will be working with the family to educate them on the proper way to conduct a search and how to prepare volunteers. This weekend volunteers ages 18 and older are asked to report to the Germantown Community Center at 18905 Kingsview Road both Saturday and Sunday anytime from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Here Dennis said they will be given a specific search area and special GPS device that will help document search efforts.
“Let’s start look outside of the obvious and maybe start looking in reverse,” Dennis said, adding that the police agencies’ search efforts have been well-orchestrated. “We want to eliminate every conceivable possibility because this family, this community and law enforcement want to believe they are alive, but until we can get into that direction of the investigation we have to rule out this other one which is a homicide.”
A vigil is expected to be held at 8:30 a.m. Oct. 4 where Troy Turner, father of Sarah, 3 and Jacob, 2, will address volunteers and Turner’s mother, Debbie Beckward will read poems she has written about the children.
