    OR - Zoey Dorsey, 4, Brookings, 17 March 2010

    Massive search for missing child suspended until Thursday morning

    Written by Scott Graves, Pilot staff writer March 17, 2010 10:23 pm
    Zoe Dorsey, 4, disappeared from her home Tuesday afternoon.

    Hope of quickly finding 4-year-old Zoe Dorsey missing in the mountains near Brookings faded with the sunset Wednesday evening as three helicopters and more than 40 search and rescue workers scoured the dense forest around her home. “It’s like she just disappeared into thin air,” said one volunteer searcher returning to the command base at the top of Mountain Drive.
    Search crews from four different counties continued to arrive at the scene as darkness fell, and plans were already underway to launch a massive search in the morning.
    Authorities began searching for the Zoe at about 3 p.m. Wednesday after receiving a 911 call from the parents. The family lives near the highest point of Mountain Drive, a long, steep winding mountain road that begins about two miles up the north bank of the Chetco River.
    By 4:30 p.m., search and rescue teams from Curry and Del Norte counties were scouring the area on foot and using all terrain vehicles. Three helicopters, including one from Brookings-based Cal-Ore Lifeflight, criss-crossed they sky in hopes of spotting something through the dense vegetation.

    Me too Liz. Isn't she a doll?

    I contacted a few OR news stations overnight to see why they have not covered this and it seems to have worked as I just got an email from one of the stations thanking me and that they had posted an article. They had not heard about it, as it's pretty far southwest.

    Here is the link. Not anything new but hopefully they will try and get some updates at daybreak.

    She is beautiful!

    I hope and pray she is found soon.

    I'll never understand why searches are called of for the night and resumed in the morning. I know it's hard to search at night, but we are talking about a 4 year old child out in the elements.

    ETA: I just read in that article linked above - that her shoes light up. Seems to me they would be spotted better at night.
    Snipped:
    Due to darkness, brushy and steep terrain the helicopters and some of the ground teams were called back to the command center. Specialized teams from all of the counties search and rescue teams then were sent out after dark to continue the search throughout the night. The United States Coast Guard then flew after dark with their searchlights, helping the ground teams.

    I guess that's answers my qustion. They whole search was not called off as stated in a previous article. Specialized teams searched through the night.

    National agencies like the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) and the FBI are also looking for Zoey. The Coast Guard flew after dark with search lights the Oregon Air National Guard will join the search Thursday morning. The Curry County Sheriff's office also called in a state animal trapper because of a large mountain lion seen in the area recently.

    Here is an explanation. Specialized teams are searching overnight.

    Thanks, I had just saw that and edited my post.

    I hope she is ok. The mountain lion thing scares me. A 4 year old is no match for a mountain lion.

    Scares me too!

    I pray they find her safe today.

    It only dropped to 46 overnight, 45 with the windchill. Not warm but 40 degrees is usually around the temp when hypothermia could be a major issue.

    It's suppose to be sunny, clear and get as warm as 68 today.

    I sure hope she is found safe. This is the first I have heard about this, and I live in southern Oregon.

    I've been trying to look at this road on a map. Looks like it is less than 10 miles from the coast.
    Not that that means anything, I was just trying to get a feel for the area.

    It is mountainous kind of land, even though it is near the coast.

    I am hoping she is curled up, waiting for searchers to find her.

    Glad that NCMEC and LE really got going on this.

    Hoping for the best outcome.

    I wish they would give us a little more information. Where was she playing?, when was the last time someone actually saw her? etc. I hate when the information is so vague, but atleast an Amber Alert was issued.
