UPDATE: Missing Wisconsin Woman Still Not Found [PHOTOS]
ST. CLOUD -- The public search for missing 23-year-old Shannah Boiteau of Wisconsin started yesterday in the area of Stearns County Road 74, and continued through today.
Senior Vice President and Case Manager of United Legacy, Sarah Syverson says this morning her team and Boiteau's family went out to search the small areas they were not able to get to yesterday. However, nothing came out.
Boiteau was last seen on June 22 around the area of Interstate 94 and Stearns County Road 74.
Back in June, Boiteau's father Cletus Boiteau said his daughter had a couple beers and was afraid the police would revoke her probation and send her back to jail, so she fled Wisconsin with her boyfriend.
"She had gotten in trouble with some drugs and she was fighting addiction said Boiteau's father. She was almost 2 years clean, she had a couple beers, she got in trouble and was afraid the cops would revoke her probation and send her back to jail. So she wanted to see California before that happened so she took off with her boyfriend".
As Boiteau and her boyfriend were driving, her father says they got into an argument of some sort and his daughter took off. However, still to this day, he doesn't know what exactly went on in the car.
Police say they don't believe foul play is suspected.
She was last seen wearing black leggings, a Victoria Secret tan tank top with the word PINK written on it, and did not have shoes on.
Months later and the search still continues, but this time the family had help from United Legacy. The non-profit organization that helps families search for their loved ones first reached out to the family when they saw Boiteau went missing.
After working with law enforcement and getting the clear, they started preparations for the search.
Syverson says searches can get overwhelming for families, so that's the purpose of this organization, to help with the searching process as much as possible.
"We want to bring closure for the family. Whether she's out here or out somewhere, we want to get her home says, Syverson"
Sandra Johnson from St. Cloud, says she first heard about United Legacy's efforts to help the family search for Boiteau through Facebook and decided to volunteer.
"My first search I did was in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, but those where dog searches. It's nice to see this though , not everyone knows everyone, but they all came together to search. Plus you never know when you might need their help again"
Boiteau's father says he's grateful for all the help and hopes his daughter is out there somewhere, so they can bring her home, to her daughter.
"She's got a little daughter at home, that myself and my ex-wife have joint custody of now. We are doing what we can to take care of her, but it's been tough not knowing what happened"
The family says they will continue the search until 6:00 p.m. Saturday and if they have to come back, they will.
Pleasure Land RV donated their RV for the family to stay in. Horses, drones by Air Bears club, water and snacks donated by several businesses were all provided to United Legacy to help with the search.
