Preparations Underway For Weekend Search For Peggy Merimon

Lubbock Police Dept. Lubbock Police Dept.

Preparations are underway for this weekend's massive volunteer search for Peggy Merimon. Hundreds of volunteers are expected to help with the effort. NewsChannel 11's Suleika Acosta explains how volunteers are getting organized for this weekend's search.

Peggy's daughter's home has been the command post for searches that friends and family have been helping with almost everyday. Maps marked with locations where they have searched are posted on the garage walls. They have also received many donations from the community, things like bottled water, sandwiches, chips, and other supplies they need. Saturday morning, all of the supplies will be taken to Buddy Holly Park where volunteers will meet to get organized for the search.

United Search and Rescue, a group out of Dallas, is helping Peggy's family organize the search. They are expecting people on foot, ATV's and on horseback to participate. We're told about 29 teams will be assigned to different areas in and around Lubbock. Peggy's son, Sven Appleton, tell us the family remains positive during this difficult time. "We're just hopeful that we find our mother alive first of all but we've got to rule out all these other possibilities," he says.

Again, volunteers will meet Saturday morning at eight at buddy holly park on North University and Canyon Lake Drive. Family asks anyone who can help to please come out and assist in the search.
