If you happen to see your organization's name here and have an objection to that, please e-mail me and we will correct it or remove it promptly.

We are still working with the Plattsmouth PD to get a complete list of all the individual volunteers. We would like to thank every one of them.

However... as with everything, opinions vary. We have been advised that while some have asked for, and are anxiously awaiting this list, there are some which want their privacy protected and have asked to not be publically recognized. We will respect your wishes either way.

If you would like to be included on this list, but are not on it, please e-mail me with your name along with any comments about you and thoughts that you would like to share on this page. If you have your own personal or commercial website, please include your URL, and if you like, we can place a link to it. If you would like us to include your picture, please attach that in your e-mail as well.

There is no better way to start out this list then with these fine men. Most of them have done a lot more than their job in the search for our baby.

Throughout this whole ordeal we have been very thankful to have lived in a town like Plattsmouth, where
Police Chief Brian Paulsen
and his
Assistant Chief Brad Kreifel
were in charge of the search. A special thanks to both of them and all the officers which were led by them.

We couldn't have asked for a more compationate and thorough team working this case. At times things went frustratingly slow for us, but we do realize that every precaution was taken to dot all the i's and cross all the t's.


Here are some of the officers we know off that were also part of the search:
