Baby Kate Search on Friday, Saturday

Posted: Updated:

Almost two years have gone by since Katherine "Baby Kate" Phillips disappeared, but no one is giving up on finding her and closing the case.

Dozens of plant experts, volunteers with plant backgrounds, and law enforcement will look for Baby Kate in Mason County on Friday and Saturday.

Baby Kate's death is being treated as a homicide. Her father, Sean Phillips, is in prison for unlawful imprisonment.

Investigators believe that botanical evidence found on Phillips' shoes could lead them to the baby's body.

Baby Kate disappeared on June 29, 2011.

In addition to law enforcement and volunteers, the Salvation Army is stepping up to provide food and water to those helping in the search.

No more volunteers are needed to help in the search, but monetary donations would be greatly appreciated by the Salvation Army to help replenish the funds used to feed searchers on Friday and Saturday.

To make a donation to the Ludington Salvation Army you can call (231) 843.3711 or send by mail to P.O. Box 681, Ludington, Michigan 49431, or online by CLICKING HERE, just make sure to designate the donation to emergency disaster services or to the Ludington office.
