It depends totally on the agency doing the initial investigation as to how the immediate scene is scoured. A missing person case is usually not treated the same as a criminal investigation at the onset. The reporting parties are furiously giving information and the agencies are setting up the preliminary search area where usually the missing person is found. While we see so many mp cases ending badly here, the majority are resolved quickly and without media every catching wind of them.I've been wondering about this but never articulated it. If it was immediately treated as a crime scene then the lack of evidence is alarming. If it was treated like a search scene then any and all evidence would/could have been trampled by ATVs, horses, vehicles and people.
I've begun to wonder if the drones found something and it's being kept quiet so the parents can grieve in peace. Yeah, I'm desperate here.
