Entering it's third week, the search for Joanna Rogers has brought volunteers from as far away as Ft. Worth.
"We are going to show up with 10 or more members," said Bill Anderson of the United Response Search and Rescue Team, an organization involved in 30 searches over the past year, finding roughly half of the missing. "We need as many people as possible," he said.
This weekend the public is asked to help. So far the sheriff's department has completed an extensive ground search within a one mile radius of Joanna's home. United Response is hoping that with the public's help, that area can be expanded to 10 miles.
"Now's the time for action," said Kathryn Rogers. Joanna's family is grateful for the public's help and working hard to keep the search in the spotlight. A new web site is up - bringjohome.info , and a $5,000 reward announced earlier this week has been upped to $15,000. "Maybe we can bring Joanna home this weekend," says her mother.
Volunteers are asked to show up in the parking lot of 1201 84th at 9 a.m. They will be trained in search techniques and assigned to a team.
