Search Intensifies For Missing Woman

UNIONTOWN, Ohio (AP) - An army of volunteers is moving out to search for Jessie Davis, the pregnant woman missing in northeast Ohio.

Today's operation began a few hours late, because organizers say they were overwhelmed by the more than one-thousand people who showed up to help.

Texas EquuSearch director Tim Miller says his volunteer group had expected only around 200 would turn out.

Miller says he thinks every single rock will be turned over in the region around Davis' home in Lake Township, near Canton.

Searchers will be aided by sonar equipment and a small drone airplane equipped with a camera.

Davis was due to deliver her baby July Third. She was last heard from in a telephone call with her mother just over a week ago.

    For anyone who has ever thought about harming another individual, this should be a lesson to just how many people are hurt when something like this happens. Where are we living? Parents killing kids, kids killing parents, spouses killing and burning spouses... too many guns, too much hating. The more we remove God from the picture, the worse things are going to get. Parents need to start laying down some law from an early age and take control of the home. Anger management needs to be taught in elementary school. Consequences need to be enforced... no more minor rules. IF YOU DO THE CRIME,..YOU DO THE TIME, period thee end!

    I can only imagine what the family is going through and I feel awful for the two year old who had to witness his mother being taken away. I am glad that he has a caring family to support him through this ordeal and I hope the family with reach peace once she is found.
