On March 22, Eaton Police Chief Jay Turner said that the search for Scottie “has not been called off.”
Front Page Detectives reported that public searches were suspended on March 21, but the Department of Natural Resources would be using boats and sonar to check local rivers and ponds.
Even with public searches suspended, Turner said the department is working on the case in cooperation with the Indiana State Police, the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office, the Department of Natural Resources and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
Turner said, “Officers are following leads and investigating diligently.”
K9 teams are still being utilized and he said the public searches being suspended was their attempt “to lessen any interference with their operations.”
