The groups were aided by search dogs and boats equipped with sonar technology. 

The police are also hoping to help locate other missing peoples with the search.

"It's great to have this many people come out to search for missing people," says Amy Dotson. "Obviously everyone is anxious to reunite the missing person with their loved one. It gives a lot of hope that the community comes together like this.
