In Breathitt County, the search continues for the body of Brandy Rowe.

Some family members are saying that more needs to be done.

The waters of Quicksand Creek lead downstream into the Kentucky River, but it's the body of Brandy Rowe that has led family, friends, and search crews to this location.

"We hear one rumor after another, we don't know what to believe. It keeps the family tore up," Paul Marshall said.

Torn up and waiting more than two weeks after going missing, family members continue to wait for officials to find Rowe's body.

Their cars now line Quicksand Creek where police believe Rowe's body was dumped and search and rescue dogs began looking Monday.

"The current is so strong, once something goes out there, it's just going to keep swirling. It's so strong that nothing can come up," Zack Tyra said.

Rescue workers say the dogs picked up several scents and that the body could be held under the current.

Family members say they know search and rescue officials are doing all they can and appreciate their work, but say something more needs to be done.

"They're tired, they're wore out. We need to bring some reinforcements in here, people that are more better trained for this," Tyra said.

"We've got to find Brandy and bring her home. We know Brandy's dead, we've got to have Brandy's body or we'll never rest," Marshall said.

Rescue workers say the recent rain has made search efforts more difficult.
