Since then, the ECSO was assisted by about 50 volunteers, Klass Kids from the Pensacola, Fla. area and the department of corrections, and Flomaton Fire and Rescue to search the immediate areas until about 10 p.m. Saturday, Blair said.

Authorities continued the search for McBride on Nov. 25 as Klass Kids brought tracking dogs. Additionally, the Monroe County Fire and Rescue, Alabama Sate Troopers, the Daphne Search and Rescue and numerous volunteers assisted.

The AST sent a helicopter to search the wooded areas including hunting trails, power lines and gas lines, Blair said.

The Daphne Search and Rescue searched three bodies of water in the area.

The ECSO has notified all area law enforcement agencies, and the State Fusion Center has provided her photo and information to all Alabama Law Enforcement Agencies, including Florida agencies.

The ECSO has three investigators working on McBride’s disappearance.
