I thought they said it was going to be something big?
Dogs on the ground at 4pm on Thursday.
He's right about not giving specific details because people will go on google maps and create diagrams and make up rumors. Already seen it happen.:facepalm:
They have done a great job organizing this search. Sucks people think they're hiding something.
I wonder two things
- why they still call it a rescue mission? How can a small child survive 5 days in these temperatures?
- why they won't say anything about scents being picked up or not.
Sorry - I agree with #1 and #3 - my mother-in-law lives just a few miles from Pinson and one Thanksgiving a group of us (adults and children) got lost just going out to walk off our Thanksgiving dinner.
BUT I must (BBM) speak up for the dogs. I do not do SAR but I work with a rescue group for hounds - Dogs have been used to find people since WWI and probably before that. My University (Auburn) is currently doing research using MRI machines and awake dogs to seeks ways to predict their tracking ability. They state in this article it can cost up to $30,000 to train a dog. Do you really think they would do this for this long and at this expense if "dogs are a joke"???
I completely agree with their decision to only use trained SAR tonight. It is a hard decision, but it is the right call for a lot of reasons.
Someone asked about the "fresh poured concrete" (I'm sure we've all seen that rumor on social media) ... they checked that out - a storm bunker that had been constructed 2 YEARS AGO ... they are frustrated with being tied up chasing down rumors when they need to search
That...was not big. :tantrum:
You know I was wondering why not at least confirm a sent was picked up .
They told nothing new to speak of.... Would not discuss if there are custody issues. Tried to put to bed rumor of newly poured concrete saying it was two years old, that they trust the family to be honest about this. Would not discuss if dogs picked up any scent, but did say they used tracking and cadaver dogs since first day. They say he has to be in woods, where else would he be...hmmm (tunnel vision is not always good). Say its still a Search and Rescue, not recovery. That is about all I got, I lost WS during conference so lost all I typed. IMHO
Bah - lost my WS connection for the second time today.
The "newly poured" concrete rumor was checked out by LE - it's a 2 year old storm shelter, not new.
Cadaver dogs were on site since day 1.
Sheriff grumbled about the sm rumors - talked about people getting on Google Earth, trying to figure out what's happening. :blushing:
Those accents are so hard to follow for me (English is my second language). I so much appreciate all of you who transcribe at any point.
I heard nothing that would be considered big. Other than it is still search and rescue.....not search and recovery as yet. If they believe he could still be alive, then I will keep hoping for that miracle too!
I guess my heart rate can return to normal now.
Please pass the bottle. No mixer needed.
I couldn't hear his answer when the female reporter asked if cadaver dogs were brought in? Were cadaver dogs brought in?
Yes, on the first day.

Yes he would not confirm the distance from the house when he went missing. They asked if it was one hundred yards, he said he would not comment, does not want people on Google Earth trying to figure it out. He is tired...at least I hope that is it....IMHO
Yes - on day one, as we all suspected.
Couldn't watch the presser so thanks for all who are diligently posting details. I thought they said "big one". I was hoping for good news. Ugh.
