Now, the mission is no longer a rescue. It’s a recovery.
By air and by foot, more than 50 firefighters, police officers and dog teams combed through the woods Saturday.
They still hope to find Joe Clyde’s body to bring his family some closure and preserve evidence.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation reported Joseph Ray Daniels, 28, intentionally killed Joe sometime before Wednesday morning and hid his body.
Dickson County Sheriff Jeff Bledsoe explained why they’re going over the same territory with a different focus.
“We’re following indicators that we have, looking at bodies of water, and things that are secluded or may be out of the way. We’re just not leaving anything uncovered. We’re in the same mode of search that we were prior when we were looking at a rescue. Now, with the recovery, we’re still working everything we can.”
The search was set to resume Sunday morning.
