Dakota Leo James is still missing.
Tuesday, February 07, 2017
Today is Day 13 since my great nephew went missing. My husband, our son and his fiancee, went to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania last Saturday and met with other people to search for Koty. Daily searches have been ongoing since he went missing.
As written by Shayne James (Dakota's brother)
Let us be clear: WE, THE FAMILY, found the bloodhounds to go search the river banks. WE, THE FAMILY, called the Allegheny Mountain Rescue Group to conduct searches. WE, THE FAMILY, contacted someone for aerial searches. And WE, THE FAMILY, reached out to the public and businesses for video surveillance and tips. The Police did not suggest any of this and put up roadblocks in order to get to these services. The last week and a half has been a string of unreturned calls and red tape. WE, THE FAMILY, turned out in droves to #finddakotajames because we are distraught and are determined to see him again. And we, the family, WILL become a relentless mob if the police to not answer their call to action. This investigation has been botched from the start. The time for police to step up is long overdue. DO YOUR JOB! And do NOT attempt to take credit for what this family, our friends, and our coworkers have done.
I heard that they have drones out over the rivers looking for his body.
I stayed home to take care of Bayau, Saturday, February 4th. We cancelled going to a wedding on February 3rd so that my sister wouldn't have to watch the dog Thursday-Saturday, in the event that Koty was found. My husband, our son and his fiancee went to Pittsburgh, PA to help search for Koty on Saturday, February 4th.
Praying for him to be found and for his family and friends. May God guide us to him so that the family can have closure.
