Merimon's search team members react

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - First responders and hundreds of volunteers have spent countless hours scouring Lubbock County looking for Peggy Merimon since the day she disappeared.

Searchers rode ATV's and walked through all types of weather. Many had never met Peggy Merimon before she went missing, including Sharon Cassel. KCBD NewsChannel 11 caught up with Cassel Wednesday afternoon, after the news broke that Peggy had finally been found.

"I made a promise to Geral I'd help him search as long as it would take to bring his wife home. Needle in a haystack we tried to bring her home years - just thankful to everyone who helped and she is back and we can give her a proper funeral," says Cassel.

Cassel says the Merimon family thanks everyone who helped look for Peggy.
