She says they've targeted several areas of interest. With pink flags in hand searchers marked spots that may need additional investigation.

"You go into this type of thing hoping to find something," said Davis. "If we can't find Jacque may be we find something that leads us to Jacque."

With more and more people finding out about Jacque Waller's story- people out searching, whether they knew her or not, want to help.
