Over 100 civilian volunteers met up with real motivation to look in the Nøkkelvann area for any signs of Sigrid Giskegjerde Schjetne, Friday.
Most of them were here for the first time today. A handful of the volunteers were under 18.
"I understand that many youngsters, some the same age as Sigrid think 'that could be me' and that they want to join us, they want to search,” stated Bengt Eriksen, one of the search coordinators.
Another coordinator, Trond Nyhus, said, "We have not had access to Nøkkelvann before, as the police have searched the neighbouring areas."
He added that he had sent a strong message to firms in the Oslo area, saying, "firms have to search in their own garages, containers."
Sports institutions have been asked to search their own grounds, especially areas where things can be stored.
"I have spoken with representatives in the Socialist Left Party (SV) and they’ve sent information to over 1,000 firms in the Oslo area, to check their areas for any clues,” said Bengt Eriksen. "It sends a strong message to companies. Everyone can get involved, all of us can check our own property."
In addition to today’s search, in which volunteers met at Rustadsaga kindergarten, coordinators confirmed that there will be a meeting for civilian volunteers at Østenjø School on Saturday and Sunday at 12 noon.
Facebook group 'Finn Sigrid Schetjen i god behold' contains information about where the civilian volunteers have searched. An interactive map is available where people can go in and add where they have searched, according to him.
