    Wells reported that the Department of Children’s Services has been on the scene to help the family work through the stress and uncertainty, but Summer’s brothers are finding it especially hard.


    “They’re kind of fighting more than usual,” said Wells. “They got into it first thing this morning, and the team come running up the hill, they heard screams, and so I’ve been trying to keep it down.”

    “Summer is still missing, and we are more concerned than ever and desperate to find her,” TBI spokesperson Leslie Earhart shared at a Monday news conference.

    72 agencies from Tennessee, Alabama, Ohio, Virginia, Georgia and North Carolina have searched 2,400 acres for Summer since Tuesday. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says they’re using all resources to find Summer including the Federal Bureau of Investigation Child Abduction Rapid Deployment Team.

    At this time, the TBI says they do not have evidence of an abduction but it isn’t being ruled out. Right now, crews are still focusing on search and rescue efforts.

    “It’s possible that she wandered off and is lost and afraid,” Earhart said.

    “There’s still two aspects of this case, the active search and the investigation,” said Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Public Information Officer, Leslie Earhart.

    [...]

    “While every case is different, this one is definitely outside of the norm.”

    There have been 106 agencies involved in search efforts from Tennessee, Ohio, Virginia, Alabama, Georgia, and North Carolina. Crews have covered over 3,000 acres, roughly 4.6 square miles, so far since the search began for Summer Moon-Utah Wells last week.

    [...]

    When asked if the TBI believes Summer is still alive, Earhart replied: “We hope so, but honestly we just don’t know. We’re holding out hope, doing everything we can. Obviously, we typically would’ve found a child at this stage in the investigation, so honestly we just don’t know.”

    [...]

    [Search Caption Tim] Coup shared that he often tells search and rescue squads under his direction, “When you’re looking through this property, you’re not looking for an adult laying there. You’re not looking for an adult hiding in a building. We’re looking for a 5-year-old girl that weighed approximately 40 lbs. Somebody that size could wad up, could hide in an area where a legal sized piece of paper or a laptop could go.”

    Coup says he continues to coordinate with people across Tennessee and from out of state to bring a fresh, rested set of eyes to the search. Cadaver dogs are also now being used in the search.

    [...]

    With well over 300 tips not providing any significant leads, the TBI says Summer’s family continues to cooperate in the investigation. No search warrants by the Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office have been obtained yet; all have been consent searches.

    The TBI would not comment on whether or not lie detectors have been used on Summer’s family members, but added that the TBI does have a polygraph test unit and that they are using all resources they can in the investigation.

    ROGERSVILLE — It's been nine days since 5-year-old Summer Wells was last seen at her rural Hawkins County home, and authorities said Thursday they still don't know where she is or what happened to her.

    [...]

    If investigators develop information the leads to locating Summer, they will share that with the media and the public first and foremost.

    “In order to protect the integrity of the investigation, we can't discuss everything we're doing and have done to find Summer,” Earhart said. “Numerous residents and individuals associated with the family have been interviewed. Surveillance videos and photos have been reviewed as well as other potential digital evidence. We're still working to identify everyone in the area on the afternoon that summer went missing.”

    She added, “Every case is different. This one is definitely outside of the norm. Typically in and investigation like this one we have some idea where the case is headed and what might have happened within a few days. In this situation, despite doing everything within our power, and exploring all avenues, the circumstances leading to Summer's disappearance remain unclear.”
