Sheriff Pulls Deputies From Teketria Buggs’ Search; Volunteers Needed

12-year-old Teketria Buggs is still missing as searches have come up empty in recent days. It is reported that the sheriff will be withdrawing his deputies at this time due to lack of leads. Its appears that future searches will be left up to volunteers to continue.

However, Sheriff Milton Wright reportedly is withdrawing deputies from the search because the manpower is needed elsewhere.

That leaves the search for the missing girl in the hands of volunteers, led by non-profit search-and-rescue members of EquuSearch Texas, members of the Orchard Volunteer Fire Department and residents of the community.

Due to these actions, Texas EquuSearch has put out a call to arms for volunteers to please help and search for the missing Teketria Buggs .

The development has prompted EquuSearch to ask for volunteers to help search beginning Saturday morning. Especially needed are people with horses and four-wheel-drive vehicles, said EquuSearch spokeswoman Barbara Gibson of Houston.

Anyone who can help comb the rural area is urged to “bundle up really good” against the weather and meet at the Orchard Volunteer Fire Department, a block east of State Highway 36 in Orchard, Gibson said. Searchers have assembled at 8 each weekday morning, but Gibson was unsure if the search will begin that early on Saturday.

“The volunteer fire department has really put in the hours,” she said. “Those are some incredible people right there.”

Search for missing Teketria Buggs goes to nearby home

A tip led authorities to expand their search to include a home near where Teketria Buggs’ home is.

There have been no leads and no clues about what happened to the young girl. Each day, searchers return from the field without finding anything, but still with hope.

“If it was our baby, we’d be out there searching. I’d be out there searching. I wouldn’t stop. I couldn’t stop, you know?” said searcher Jaime Schumann.

Although they won’t talk about it, several investigators are again searching the neighboring home.
