    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    From the link above
    "The search will resume on Christmas Eve at 9 a.m."

    I understand that it's bitterly cold and damp outside, more reason to search

    Within the last hour residents in the county received an Emergency message asking folks to check their garages and out-buildings for KM. I live here in Gowanda, NY, and I cannot find any updates regarding the search, or anything for that matter. And, I'm saddened to say that I haven't seen my neighbors checking their outbuildings. I can see into six backyards from our large dining room windows, and not many folks have fences around their yards in this village. Also, it has been very cold and wet for days now. On the 22nd we thought for sure our creeks were going to cause major flooding.

    If KM does not have a source of heat in this weather the outcome appears very slim that she's still with us.

    As we say here.....her home is 'on the hill'. I can walk out my front door and look up the hill to the street her home is on. The area behind her home is a large wilderness area, and it sits above the valley (village). The roads up on the hill do not get plowed as often as the roads in the village. There have been many times that the snow has been coming down fast and heavy causing white-out conditions for drivers. We're new to the area, so we don't know many people in the village to hear of any updates.

    All I can see, is that the search was suspended days ago and they're waiting for the weather to "clear".

    It's been terrible weather -- guess LE figures they're searching for a body, so there's no rush.

    Wondering as well. Like I said, I live near that area so the weather has not been as bad and the snow has melted for now. But it is getting colder again. Have they given up search for her?
    I have heard from some residents that she left a note.. I need to confirm if this is true. But I am not sure how? Sin City, you seem to see the one who could confirm that easier than I.

    Also I read from here

    A canine search tracked Militello having travelled along a creek bed, but dogs lost the scent at a boggy area.
    Does anyone know where this creek was? I have heard from multiple residents that this is true. I know of a creek that firefighters / search team were in. Not sure if it was that one though.



    Everything I say is with a slice of

    From what I understand, the dogs tracked Kimberly Militello's scent to a boggy/swamp area, and this is when the search stopped. It has been said that there was a note left in the home. It has snowed heavy, creeks have came close to flooding, waters flowing dangerously fast, rained, melted, snowed again, rained again, and melted.

    KM barely weighed as much as a teen, and the elements would have taken her quickly. There has been no mention of her being last seen with outdoor clothing on. No mention of foul play involved. No mention of when the next search will be done.

    I've been told by a man, who knows the property next to the bog, and he believes that KM got stuck in the bog. When searches are able to resume the trackers will be able to locate her based on the coyote, fox, and racoon tracks in and out of the bog.....sorry for that visualization.
