UPDATE (5:38pm, 3/10): The Davidson Police Department is diligently working on tips and receiving assistance from our regional partners for a tracking canine and helicopter. We have not begun any search parties due to the limited information on Ket’s direction of travel. Once that is narrowed down, we will be requesting assistance from the public. Several areas around the home and adjacent properties were searched immediately after Ket was reported missing. We have cleared many of these properties so the canine search scene will be clear. Many people have already called to volunteer. Please call the mainline of Davidson PD at 704-892-5131 to leave your name and best contact number if you wish to volunteer. [NOTE: that line will be set up to handle after hours voicemail as of Wednesday.]
