Good evening everyone, firstly- to those that spent time this weekend, either with the organized search or on your own THANK YOU!!! And, secondly thank you for sharing with friends, family and co-workers. Having people regularly provide updates with locations has been incredibly helpful. I want you all to realize that the task of finding someone (a needle in a hay stack if you will) becomes infinitely easier when you have so many people invested in helping. I am from Wisconsin- and I heard about “Minnesota Nice” before moving here, but this is really incredible.
The searches today didn’t yield in bringing Kira home, but we have a lot of great information, and so many places were “marked in red.” Any other areas that you have searched- please leave a comment or reply, and be as detailed as possible, noting start and end areas. This makes the task of marking off specific sections that much easier.
*** For those of you that are computer savvy, a note from Justin***
MAP LEGEND: We have added a YELLOW DOT to show the Mall of America. The NEON GREEN DOT is Kira’s home. The RED are locations that have been searched.
I am focusing on the sections that were searched (I will include the links for the larger map and previous sections), as you will note that some of the southern and western searches have been cut off. It becomes very difficult to read or see the red when it is zoomed out so far, so we thought this would be easier. Let me know if you have questions or need help with the map.
As always, SHARE, SHARE, SHARE!!!!
Notes on searching: Please use the buddy system, wear bright clothing, carry a fully charged cell phone, and dress for the elements. A walking stick (we unscrewed broomsticks and rakes) will be helpful to navigate terrain, and also to poke in deeper snow. If you find Kira, do NOT disturb the area- and please call the tip line at 651.560.3277
Thank you again,
