The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office said crews were out searching near NW Skyline Blvd and NW Moreland Road Saturday. Sunday the base of operations was moved to NW Dixie Mountain Road, near the Multnomah-Washington County border.
Approximately seventy personnel in total were involved today, bringing the weekend searcher and overhead staff numbers to 130 for the weekend, Lt. Mark Matsushima said. While some paid staff were represented in these numbers, the greater majority are trained and certified citizen volunteers serving their communities through search and rescue services.

Searchers remain committed to these continuing efforts until the matter is resolved, Matsushima added.
Investigators meet frequently to evaluate the investigative tips in the case, he said, as well as such things as weather conditions to determine where and when ground searches will occur.
He did not provide any specific information about what prompted the searches this weekend.
