The children of the individuals missing are posting on Facebook saying they think their parents have been missing 24 hours. I assume that means Monday evening.

You'd think the dogs would pick up a scent right away, but the article does not say blood hounds, it says K9's. I don't know if trailing is their main
occupation.

Guy, that would make sense since the atv trail leads to the road in and you found a hunters blind in the clearing. I'm sure the police would have concentrated on that area. I agree with Bob the dogs should have been able to pick up their scent. I think the public is not being told the whole story as usual.

This reminds me of the hunter that went missing in a similar area. Items that you think they would take left at the car/atv. Becoming very disturbing.
Zeldon wasn't reported missing for a day or two and it had rained. From what we were told I can't help but think foul play was at work. This may be eerily similar but it hasn't rained yet to wash any scent away. I'm wondering what the shotgun was for. Shotgun deer is not in season yet. Maybe small game? Was the gun a spare or were they both intending to hunt?

Lets say they were hunting, where did they go? Did they fall into a spung? If I have guessed correctly where they were I don't see any. How far from your ATV would you walk with your gun still with it.

That is assuming they actually drove the ATV.

It baffles me that the press can't make a simple map showing where they live, where they found the atv, where the searchers are looking (and why) etc. The updates are totally useless to those who would like to help. And how the devil can an ATV get stuck in a field as the article says?
