Good evening all, I hope everyone is well. I have been hesitant to post, with all of the melting snow, it feels as though we have a brand new landscape we are working with (and, I am not going to sugarcoat anything, I was really hoping Keller Lake was going to be the final spot). Locations that have been “checked off” are completely new without the snow. That said, please then take the maps with a grain of salt. If you see an area has been crossed off, but feel like you would like to recheck it, by all means. Let’s bring her home.
Here are the updated maps with a legend, we have narrowed in a 10 mile radius:
Neon Green: Kira’s house, Neon Yellow: Mall of America, Red lines: searched areas
Keller Lake, Gervais Lake, Spoon Lake, Round Lake, and Lake Phalen were all recently searched this past weekend with all of the snow melted. So those areas we are comfortable saying are “done.” Keller Lake itself has been drilled and searched, but is not marked off completely as we would like to wait for the ice to melt.
Couple of things, while searching- please have the buddy system in place, a fully charged cellphone, wear weather appropriate, brightly lit clothing, and please be as specific as possible when noting locations (many smartphones have GPS tracking systems in place, you can screen shot and email to firstname.lastname@example.org), bring a notepad if you don’t want to use a phone. We ask this so that someone could effectively pick up where you left off. If you find anything- please call 651.560.3277. DO NOT TOUCH anything!!! As a note, Law Enforcement is focused on finding Kira, while other evidence is not something to push aside- we need to focus our efforts on just finding her.
Also, we have a new page for searching- related only to the up and coming searches and maps. Please take a look at Help Find Kira Steger Trevino on facebook. You may check for searches, comment on areas you have looked at, and get links related to searching. Let’s find her, bring her home, and bring justice to such a beautiful light.
