Orlando is heavily populated. You'd think they'd get reasonable numbers. Especially on a 3 day weekend.
I wonder if the volunteer count reflects local general level of animosity? Or if locals believe too much time has passed, given time + heat + nature being what it is in the area. Or, maybe EVERYONE had alternate plans for the 3 day weekend?
I lived in Orlando for a year. IIRC, much of the outlying area is swampy. Some of that's been filled in for construction (like DisneyWorld - Mr. Disney bought acres upon acres of cheap swampland in Florida and built an empire, so they say). So if the wild arcreage has not been land-filled, I would think what's out there to search through is often swampland. Makes for very difficult searching. JMHO, I think...
Locals - perhaps you can shed some light. Although, if you're a WS local, I bet you're out searching in spite of time+heat+nature+waterlands, aren't you?! I know I would be.
Here's to those that searched today! You are all in my thoughts & prayers.
is the wbcam still up? could I have a link please.

What I post are my opinions only.
Is there anybody in Orlando that knows if the OCSO Helicopters are still up?
JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.
As I read (incl. the 400 page docs), I make pictures in my mind of what the characters look like. I just knew he was tall. I hate to say it, but in the little version of characters in my head, Yuri looks like Yule Brenner. hee-hee!
AWESOME to know that Yuri was searching. Just wonderful to know. Bless those LE officers. Thanks for sharing, SS & Bazenee.
I wonder what those places are? Some sort of business or industrial type places. I will try to find out.
