Investigators to Plan Next Steps in Search for Kathlynn Shepard


By Ellen Kurt

DAYTON, Iowa (AP) - State and local investigators plan to meet Tuesday to plan the next steps in their search for a missing 15-year-old central Iowa girl.

Division of Criminal Investigation agent Bill Kietzman says the meeting will give investigators an opportunity to determine their next "reasonable" steps.

Kietzman told The Des Moines Register that Iowa Department of Natural Resources officers continued their search Monday of the Des Moines River for any sign of Kathlynn Shepard.

Police believe 42-year-old Michael Klunder abducted Kathlynn and a 12-year-old girl a week ago at their school bus stop in Dayton. The younger girl escaped but Kathlynn hasn't been found.

Klunder committed suicide hours after the younger girl escaped the hog confinement building where he worked.
