Friday night about 300 townspeople attended a special mass for Tammy.

"You have become a part of everyone here," Rev. Lawrence Len-nis told the girl's parents and older brother and sister. "All of us will continue to reach out to you with our prayers, our hope and our love." While the special service was under way in Exeter, about 60 people were meeting in Manchester to form a state group to help young children who might become victims of kidnaping or abuse. Sobolesky told the group that "Our teachers are encouraged to add personal touches and approaches to the learning Of course there are no short-cuts to child care.

Police officers, firefighters and volunteers continued searching yesterday for clues to the whereabouts of Tammy Belanger, who disappeared Tuesday while walking to school, but they found nothing. At the same time, a volunteer said he would distribute pictures of Tammy among the nation's' truckers in the hopes of finding the missing 8-year-old third-grader.

Search crews were called back to look over roadsides in nearby towns and a local campground yesterday, police said. More than 50 volunteers were also searching quarries in the nearby towns of Deerfield and Brentwood. About 25 people volunteered to scout the Elm's Campground yesterday as part of a search of secluded areas, said Exeter Police Dispatcher Linda Garvey. John Sobolesky, 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. Sobolesky, who lives in Manchester, said truckers provide an important network for spreading the word across the country about children in trouble.

The search centered Friday on a gravel pit in Kensington after searchers found footprints and drag marks leading to the edge of a pond. Footprints alone led away from the water, leading searchers to believe something had been dragged to the pond and thrown in. Divers and searchers in boats found no clues to the girl's, two million children a year leave home for one reason or another and 50,000 are never heard from again. The group set up some committees to look into various projects that can help potential victims. They include having volunteers teach schoolchildren how to avoid abductions and setting up "safe houses" in which residents who qualify put decals in their front windows to signify that the house is somewhere that a child in trouble can run for help.

The meeting had been planned before Tammy Belanger's disappearance, but Sobolesky told the gathering that the girl's disappearance shows that kidna pings can happen anywhere. A reward fund and family fund have been established in Tammy's name. The reward will go to anyone with information helping to locate Tammy. The family fund is to help pay for family needs during tfie emergency. II A II ftinderCare It.
