Freitag said people who are able-bodied and willing to come down to the area to help search should meet near where Second Street intersects with James Street.

Volunteers should bring their cellphones and a flashlight and dress in fairly warm clothing and suitable footwear .

The search already appears to have gone through cornfields nearby.
