Volunteers press search for missing girl Teamsters probe leads to local chief's ouster United Prcai International Unif Prtti International Members of the local accompanied Allgood to the union's offices to station themselves at doorways, and union officials took charge of the headquarters. Diaz, who waged a fierce fight against the trusteeship, has refused to comment. Based on findings issued Friday, Presser placed the local into trusteeship, ousting its president from the union an unusual move and barring him from the property. Diaz, Local 941 president since January 1981, was also asked to turn over all union property, keys to the local headquarters and a car given to him to use while president. Allgood said Diaz failed to insure the union car he was given, owed bills on the car amounting to $14,000 and had failed to pay $2,000 in rent on the headquarters.

The accusations, resulting from a union hearing Oct. 25th in El Paso, included spending unauthorized union funds on an expensive automobile lease, a costly financial audit and bodyguards; issuing checks without receipt for expenses, with some checks made payable to Diaz or his relatives; and ordering the local's bookkeeper to fill in blank receipts to match prior expenditures. EL PASO, Texas The Teamsters, in an unusually bitter internal wrangle, placed a local into trusteeship and ousted its president because of accusations that he used unauthorized union funds to lease an expensive automobile, finance an audit and hire bodyguards. The order by Jackie Presser, the union's national nreniHnt fnlluumH campground Saturday, police said. More than 50 volunteers searched quarries in the nearby towns of Deer-field and Brentwood.

John Soboleski, president of the Massachusetts Society for Young Victims, said he would print flyers with a picture and detailed description of Tammy and begin distributing them to drivers and truckstops throughout the country by Tuesday. He said truckers are a valuable network for spreading the word about children in trouble. Investigators found fresh tire marks and footprints at a quarry, but Rockingham County Deputy Sheriff Neal Janvrin said authorities were convinced after a 90-minute search that Tammy was not there. Police said they would continue to inspect quarries and gravel pita and reported about 500 calls Friday from people with suggestions of where Tammy might be. "I don't think there's anyone on the Eastern Seaboard who hasn't volunteered to help," dispatcher Sherry Sears said Saturday after a night answering calls.

More than 300 townspeople attended Mass at St. Michael's Catholic Church Friday night to show support for the Belanger family. Rev. Laurence Leonard told them: "We intensely and sincerely ask for the safe return of Tammy Belanger to her family. God, the author of life, is also the source of hope." EXETER, N.H.

Searchers scoured a campground Saturday for Tammy Belanger, and a volunteer planned to distribute pictures of the girl among the nation's truckers in the hope of finding the missing 8-year-old. The third-grader, described by her family as shy and well-behaved, was last seen on her 10-minute walk to elementary school Tuesday. Up to 200 volunteers at a time have helped search the area, but no trace has been found of her in the town of 13,000 people in southeastern New Hampshire. Smaller search crews looked again PRESSER a two-month investigation of El Paso Local 941 by the Washington-based union.
