300 volunteers help search for missing 15-year-old
NORTH WATERBORO (WGME) -- Community support is building as the search for 15-year-old Jaden Dremsa enters its second full day.
Over 100 volunteers came to the search command center at Lakeside Community Church on Route 5 in North Waterboro Saturday morning. They went out with Maine wardens searching the woods, looking for any sign of the missing teenager.
Wardens say Dremsa left his home at the Twin Pines Trailer Park at 2:30 Thursday and told his brother he was going for a walk. Dremsa never returned home.
The 15-year-old has Aspergers Syndrome, a mild form of autism. Dremsa's family tells CBS 13 he is shy and might not ask for help if he runs into somebody. Wardens say they are taking Dremsa's communication barriers into account as they continue to search.
Search crews expanded the area where they are looking for Dremsa. They're searching more than a mile of wooded area.
Lt. Adam Gormely tells CBS 13 the search will wrap up around 6 p.m. Saturday. They have no new leads on his whereabouts.
