    IA - Sam Kemp, 17, Des Moines, 12 December 2015

    Sam Kemp

    Teen still missing after large party Saturday night
    "DES MOINES, Iowa — Deputies in Polk County are asking for the public’s assistance as they search for a missing teenager from Des Moines.

    Sam Kemp, 17, has been missing since Saturday night when he went to a party in Granger.

    His mother has not heard from him since, authorities said.

    Sgt. Brandon Bracelin told KCCI that when deputies arrived at the large party, many people ran away from the scene. Bracelin said that a dive team was called out for a short time to check a pond near where the party was held, but found nothing.

    Kemp is described by police as a black male, 6 feet tall and 200 pounds with blonde/brown dreads. He was last seen wearing a black Nike sweatshirt with white Nike logo on it, along with dark blue jeans and blue shoes."

    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."

    With all the flooding there it's going to be a real job finding anything. I hope he's high and dry at some friends house..

    Metro Star Dive Team searched a pond behind a home at 9888 NW 119th Court on Monday and Tuesday. The house is where more than 300 kids, including Kemp, were partying Saturday night.

    Dive teams will do another search Thursday around 10 a.m. and authorities hope to get an Iowa State Patrol plane to do an aerial search as well. Bracelin said several deputies and detectives will be searching the perimeter where the party took place on ATVs.

    "All we have right now is a juvenile at a party. Police came, and he took off. That’s what we have as of right now," Bracelin said.

    A friend of Kemp told authorities he thought [Sam] was running behind him. The friend lost sight of him as they ran around a pond near the duplex.

    A phone was found in a ditch off of Highway 141 Wednesday that Kemp’s family believe was his. Kemp’s family has been critical of law enforcement agencies’ handling of the search.

    Sgt. Brandon Bracelin said the family of 17-year-old Sam Kemp positively identified the body as Kemp.

    Was it too dark and he fell in? How did a 17 yr old drown in a pond?

    IMO, he went missing after the police arrived to break up a large party and everyone ran.. People don't generally flee events when police arrive unless something illegal is going on. My suspicion is that he may have been intoxicated at the time. It's really unfortunate and makes me sad..
