At 10:30 a.m., three school buses filled with volunteers left to conduct a search that would start on Verdon Road.
Hanover Sheriff's Office Lt. Kenny B. Epling said the team of 150 searchers would be lined up to walk a 1 1/2-mile-deep area from Verdon Road to the North Anna River. Searchers were told they might be working into the evening.
Canine officers with dogs were also preparing to head out from Kings Dominion.
Earlier in the morning, 250 professional searchers were deployed.
The total number of volunteers was estimated at 2,000, and coordinators hoped to use as many of them as possible. Epling said anyone not trained by 2 p.m. would likely be turned away because there wouldn't be time to get them out in the woods and back before dark.
