Reagan pledges help in gettin posters of missing boys circulated By DAVID TOMLIN Associated Press Writer DES MOINES, Iowa Bolstered by a pledge of help from President Reagan, police and volunteers con tinued their search Thursday for a 13-year-old newspaper carrier who disappeared during the weekend. Investigators and residents combed the Ewing Park area around Lake Easter southeast of downtown Des Moines for signs of Eugene Martin. Detectives continued taking calls and tips from would-be informants, hoping for something useful. "In a case like this it s all you ve got," said police Sgt. Bill Mullins. "You're completely dependent on the public volunteering information. You run down a lot of dead ends that way, but it's the only way to build into a case." Reagan got involved during a phone call Thursday morning to James Gannon, editor of the Des Moines Register. Martin had been about to deliver the Sunday Register when he disappeared Sunday. His case was nearly identical to the disappearance of Johnny Gosch, another Register carrier, almost two years ago. "The president asked if there was anything he could do to help, and I said to him that yes, there was, since he offered," Gannon, said. Register executives had already begun discussing the idea of posting handbills carrying the boys' pictures with local postal authorities, so Gannon said he decided to seize the opportunity to make the posting national. "I told the president if there was any way he could help get that poster put up in post offices around the country, I'd appreciate it," Gannon said. "His response to that was, 'I'll get right on it.'" But police appeared to have hit a snag Thursday in their efforts to circulate a composite sketch of a man in his 30s who may have been seen with Martin on Sunday morn ing. The FBI brought an artist to Des Moines to interview witnesses and produce a composite drawing of the man, but Mullins said it was uncertain Thursday that any such sketch would be made. "It's in limbo," he said. "They haven't decided whether to do it." The ability of an artist to create a good likeness depends on a number of technical factors, including making sure that all witnesses are describing the same person, Mullins said. "If you're not going to be able to get a good picture, you're better off not doing one at all," Mullins said. Officials evacuate Des Moines care home DES MOINES (AP) - A Des Moines residential care home has been fined $5,000 after a routine inspection found several serious violations of state law, said Iowa Department of Health officials. The inspection led the State Health Commissioner Norm Paw-lewski to order the home evacuated. The operator of the R and S Residential Home, Isaac Seymour, has appealed that order in Polk County District Court and a hearing is set for Monday. Dana Petrowsky of the health department said the home was ex-Enjoy Press-Citizen Home Delivery no matter what the weather.
