Texas Equusearch to assist in search for Deltona mom, kids
DELTONA, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -
The Volusia County Sheriff's Office says it has been in contact with Texas Equusearch to coordinate supplemental search efforts that are underway for the bodies of a missing Deltona woman and her two children.
Yessenia Suarez, 28, and her two children, Thalia and Michael Otto,
disappeared more than two weeks after a domestic dispute between Suarez
and her husband, Luis Toledo. Toledo, 31, now faces charges for the murder of his wife. Detectives said he has implicated another person in the deaths of the children.
Texas Equusearch is the search and rescue team made famous by their efforts to find Caylee Anthony. The organization has personnel in Deltona coordinating with the Sheriff's Office and scouting out additional locations to be searched, including areas identified by the victims' family during their meeting with the Sheriff's Office on Monday.
Once the additional locations to be searched have been identified, Texas Equusearch is expected to bring in approximately 30-40 searchers on Saturday, including some on horseback.
Sheriff's Office personnel also will be teamed up with the Equusearch personnel for Saturday's search.
