CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Clay Waller's attorney, Assistant Federal Public Defender Scott Tilsen, says he is considering to appeal the order of detention to keep Waller behind bars without bond.

A judge ordered Waller to be held without bond Thursday pending trial of the federal charge of Internet threatening.

Judge Lewis M. Blanton issued an order of detention citing that Waller would be a potential danger to the community if released on bond and a risk for not appearing in court.

The order was established due to the court finding credible testimony and evidence submitted at the detention hearing, Ferrell said.

Tilsen says he needs to talk with is client first, but is looking at an appeals as the possible next step.

The court also has ordered that Waller be committed to the custody of the attorney general for confinement in a correctional facility pending trial.

Waller was being held in the Pemiscot County Jail.

Search crews will be back out looking for the missing mother of three this weekend.

With bow deer season now underway, the hope is hunters will keep their eyes open for anything unusual.

Since June 1, search crews have looked high and low for Jacque Waller.

Ground searches will resume this weekend, but with hunters taking to the woods investigators ask them to keep a look out for anything unusual.

Jacque Waller's childhood friend Bob Sherrill says he's logged more than 350 hours looking for Waller and with the help of the CUE Center for Missing Persons has covered 400 acres.

He too asks hunters to pay close attention.

Volunteers are searching areas this weekend in Perry County, and crews are expected back out in full force in Cape Girardeau County next weekend.

Searchers like Sherill believe Jacque Waller is close by, likely in Cape County and believe she will be found soon.
