The United Cajun Navy says the search for children continues

On Thursday, United Cajun Navy officials said they identified an area of ​​great interest using hand-held sonar equipment while trying to search for the children who disappeared in the Mississippi River Saturday night. On Friday, Cajun Navy officials say the finding was a false alarm. Previous crews sunk underwater drones in this area. Divers were also called to the spot but it was too muddy and as time went on it got too dark. The search was interrupted tonight. While all this was happening, family members, friends and community members prayed for everyone involved. They allowed WDSU cameras to capture them gathering in prayer. The hope is a closure for the families of 8-year-old Ally Berry Wilson, her sister, 14-year-old Brandy Wilson, and their friend, 15-year-old Kevin Poole. One of the girls slipped on a pole while playing along the river on Saturday and the other two went in to rescue her. Thursday ended the fifth full day in the search for the children after the incident. Friday’s search resumed at 9 p.m.
