Adams' team, which had taken part in earlier searches as well, met with the Smith family in Carrington about two weeks before returning to the Minot area to resume the search for Reachelle. During the Minot trip, they paid their own expenses other than motel rooms, which were taken care of by the Smith family. Adams planned to leave after Monday's search but vowed to return if any other leads were discovered. "I thank the whole crew for being here and trying to resolve this situation," said Vita Graham, Reachelle's grandmother. "Finding Reachelle is the main dyssey RESEARCH Call us now at 1-888-788-3936 or (701) 355-2003 for more information about this study.

Bismarck a perfect crime," Adams said during a break Monday from his search of the refuge. "In this case, it seems as though there was a little planning, a little forethought that went into this before it all transpired. Some people might say, 'What a beautiful place for a picnic' I look at it and say, 'What a place to hide a body or commit a Stephanie Smith, Reachelle's aunt, watched as bloodhounds and search teams worked the area along the Mouse River near the old Silver Bridge crossing. "We're just trying to find any clues that will help bring Reachelle home," she said. "We're looking for a shirt, any type of clothing.

When the search was called off before, it just broke my heart but it kind of made me feel good that we didn't find anything. I don't feel she's out here, but I hope we find something that helps bring her home." Bloodhounds were put in a small boat Monday along the banks of the Mouse River, but they did not react. Other searches, on banks of lower pools in the refuge, also brought no reaction from the dogs. "We're not expecting to find a little girl standing in the weeds waving at us," Adams said. "These are reality checks the family has to be prepared for.

Metz said the upcoming hunting season may turn up some clues. "If somebody does come across something, they should not disturb it and notify the sheriff's department," he said. MINOT CAP) A South Dakota man brought his bloodhounds to help in the search for 3-year-old Reachelle Smith, missing more than three months, and police said they were checking a flashlight found in his search. Denny Adams of Conde, S.D., who runs Dakota Territory Search Dogs, has spent the past couple of days searching the Upper Souris National Wildlife Refuge, where a stolen van and the body of 22-year old Leigh Cowen was discovered in late May. Cowen had claimed to be the father of Reachelle, who was last seen at her Minot home May 16.

Adams said Monday the search turned up an "item of interest." Minot Police Sgt. Jason Sundbakken said it was a flashlight that could be from a search party. "They found it on the refuge," Sundbakken said Tuesday. "If we can link it to anything, we'll do that." The flashlight was turned over to the Ward County Sheriff's Department, Sundbakken said. "A flashlight I don't know how significant that is," said Ward County Sheriff's Detective Paul Metz.

"It was found on the refuge not far from where Leigh Cowen's van and he was found." Metz said authorities "haven't been able to determine ownership" of the flashlight. "Even if it was (Cowen's), we already knew he was in the area," Metz said. "There's no such thing as BRIDGEVIEW BAY Ready To Build On!

Crawford asked help Tuesday from landowners in the Dakotas and southwest Minnesota to search their property for signs of her husband and his airplane. "What I'm hoping is that farmers will be kind enough to look at shelterbelts, ravines or those areas that might not be visible from the air, she said. "My family would be grateful." Air and ground searches have turned up no trace of Nelson. Authorities have been trying to track Nelson's cell phone, but they say a voice connection has to be made before a location can be traced. "Yes, it's still ringing," Crawford said Tuesday night, choking back tears.

"We have been working with Verizon and it doesnt appear they have been able to get a trian-gulation fix on his location." Authorities on Tuesday expanded their search in North Dakota and into northern South Dakota for the missing pilot and his airplane. Air and ground searches have covered every square mile of North Dakota south of Interstate 94, from Bismarck to Fergus Falls, where Nelson has a hangar, said Rick Robinson, a spokesman for the North Dakota Department of Emergency Services. By JAMES MacPHERSON Associated Press Writer Bob Nelson's cell phone rings but no one answers. Family members and authorities still call it, hoping it will lead to him. Nelson, 60, of Battle Lake, and his single-engine Piper Cherokee have been missing since Thursday evening, after authorities say he took off in a storm.

Nelson's wife, Mollie Crawford, spoke with her husband on the cell phone minutes before he took off. "He had been waiting on the ground because of bad weather," she said. "He said a window was clearing and he would have the opportunity to get in the air. He wouldn't have gone if he thought the weather was bad," she said. Heavy rain, hail and funnel clouds moved across parts of North Dakota and Minnesota on Thursday.

Nelson was reported missing about 8:30 p.m. The last radar tracking signal from Nelson was southwest of Jamestown, about an hour after he left. Nelson had an "emergency locate" transmitter on the plane, his wife said. She said it was "baffling" that the transmitter was not emitting any signals. "He took meticulous care of his airplane it was his hobby and his passion," Crawford said.

"The child is in protective custody, and we are investigating the circumstances." Skuza said it will be up to the Cass County state's attorney to determine whether any charges should be filed. "If a parent feels like they're in over their head, of course, it's in much better interest of the child's safety and welfare if they drop the child off in that circumstance than try care for the child on their own," Skuza said.

The girl is in good health and authorities are trying to find her mother, Sgt. Jeff Skuza said. Skuza said the man brought the child to the Innovis hospital last Thursday.
