    We'll have to take turns bumping this up until the thaw.

    Anyone who wants more details on the equipment used in this kind of search can
    See the equipment here: http://www.ovsar.org/sidescan.htm
    It’s a complete SideScan Sonar setup for a search crew.
    Also there are many “screen shots” of the sonar images available on the web.
    The Cal-Sag Channel crew is also using a small remotely operated vehicle for real time
    Camera images.

    The camera images at that site are amazing in the clarity and detail. But with all the debris in the Cal Sag, that may hinder them getting the shots they need..meaning all the cars, etc in the way.

    --->>>Thank you for the link. I clicked on the K-9 training link at your link. Remarkable what dogs are trained for and how they are trained. I got involved with 'dogs' and their abilities on the JonBenet Case. This link is a goldmine for info on DOGS and their duties in LE. Heres to the Doggies too!

    I won’t claim to be an expert on this type of search, but from following the Laci
    Peterson search I see a lot of similarities. One of the things I remember that may
    Apply here is the lack of water clarity at times.
    If I remember right the fact that large propellers passing by stir up mud so
    when a ship goes by; the visibility goes way down.
    Could that be one of the reasons for stopping the Barge traffic at times?

    Also, when the towfish is being pulled behind the boat I doubt they
    Would like to have it run into a sunken car eh? From what I have read; that place
    Was sort of a “ dumping grounds” for cars and other things. That must really
    Be a challenge in this weather.

    --->>>Something you said stirred a thought, 'Dumping ground'. I wonder if other than someone running a car off an open access from a bridge is how cars get in the channel? I am thinking noooooo couldn't be.

    So given that thought from the accesses to allow the pushing a car off by an individual entity, would a 'recent' dump get bogged down with cars already in the channel ?, OR would a 'newly' dumped vehicle be drawn by any sort of a current in the channel to a NEW location?

    I am also guessing that 'passing' large boats would create a 'wash' current that could re locate a recently dumped vehicle, huh?

    Wish I were smarter about large bodies of water. I would think there might be a state oriented fine for 'dumping vehicles' in a waterway, huh?

    it was mentioned on a different thread, about a search being done today...is this the same body of water as this thread pertains to?

    There was a video feed that showed a car being pulled up from under a bridge according to SuziQ on the Stacy Peterson thread.

    Was that done so the sonar could see "farther down" in the water??

    Fox News, "The Big Story," just reported they are draining this part of the canal? Any local news on this?

    Adora:

    I haven't heard anything and chico hasn't posted anything in the media thread. I posted what you asked on the Stacy Peterson thread thinking that maybe someone over there might know, but no one has responded yet.

    If you hear anything more, please post.

    Okay, I rewound "The Big Story," and here is the gist of what they reported:

    Mary Frances Briegel(sp) of WBBM radio says they reportedly began draining the canal last night and sources say they know exactly what they are looking for. According to her, local reporters are speculating that GJ testimony may have led to draining the canal for a specific item.

    Lieberman (AMW guy) says that AMW has received quite a few tips regarding this particular canal. Also talked a bit about Steve Peterson being re-subpoenaed to the GJ, saying that seems significant to him.

    I don't know, to drain a huge canal, the water has to go somewhere. Unless they were able to close off a section within the locks??

    Earlier today there was a brief report at http://abclocal.go.com/wls/ and it showed a canal and mentioned the search for Stacy. I can't find it again and didn't take the time to read the article in full when I first came upon it.
