Search for DeOrr Kunz scaled back

The Lemhi County Sheriff’s office has announced they are scaling back on the search for the missing 2 year old boy DeOrr Kunz.

Crews have been searching the Timber Creek/Stone Reservoir area for ten days now. The Sheriff’s office has decided to redirect the investigation but will continue to keep a presence in the Timber Creek area to search for clues. They believe it is still possible DeOrr may have been abducted by strangers or wild animals.

Numerous resources, including helicopters, divers, side scan sonar, scent dogs, cadaver dogs, horses, ATVs, and over 300 people on the ground, were used to grid and search the reservoir, the creek, and the hillsides, with absolutely no sign of DeOrr.

Lemhi County Sheriff Lynn Bowerman says the parents are not suspects in the case.

The Lemhi County Sheriff’s office is asking the public to continue to report any information to the Idaho Fusion Center at 208 846-7676, or to the Lemhi County Sheriff’s Office at 208 756-8980.
