The Facebook page “Find Lynn Messer” that was created and then removed, is back up and is in full force.
In a note on Friday to the supporters from Lynn’s husband, Kerry Messer, he stated that he must publicly praise the Ste. Genevieve County Sheriff, his staff and officers for the search for Lynn, 52, who has been missing from the family farm at the junction of Route DD and Dry Fork Road since Tuesday.
“They have been so gracious to us on a personal level and efficient in responding and helping us during this troubling time,” read his post. “It was amazing how fast they went into action bringing in their manpower and equipment along with pulling in the highly coveted Eureka Search and Rescue Team which I now understand to be the most awesome, respected, and desired team of choice within 200-plus miles of us and managing the logistics of over two hundred specially trained personnel.”
His post continued “Within a couple of hours our farm was being combed by all these people from the ground as well as from the air. I could not count the number of specially trained dogs and handlers, all fitted with real-time GPS tracking being fed real-time into a base computer to provide us with a huge map showing the entire path (color coded) of each individual dog throughout the entire day and night.
“No reservations or restrictions were put on resources or efforts. They have thus far blown me away with everything they've been doing. They even reorganized and did a special night-time simultaneous 'grid search' in which the entire army of searchers were broken into teams which then swiped the entire farm in small bite-sized pieces, all at the same time and with each of the dozens of groups using infra-red detection, which would make it almost impossible for someone to avoid detection by moving away from searchers as they would then be pushed into another group.
“Sadly, this initial search and the outstanding performance of this massive effort produced no fruit other than helping us know with a high probability that Lynn is not physically located on the farm."
"With this elite Team having accomplished the initial task of scouring our farm and beyond, the Sheriff's office then opened the doors to civilian volunteers so we can prayerfully find something/anything they could have missed. We are also expanding the search well beyond the farm.”
His post continued on to thank everyone for their support and prayers through this hard time.
The page is asked for volunteers to come out and help over the weekend.

She has a broken right toe and does not have her walking boot with her. Messer’s purse, cell phone, and other personal items were left at the residence. Evidence at the scene indicates she may be in physical danger."
