When a child goes missing, most parents scour the neighborhood searching and/or putting up posters wherever they can. At one time, Stephen Kerr distributed reward fliers for his adopted son missing Jaliek. Then, in a strange twist, the adoptive father of Jaliek Rainwalker in December of 2007, spent his time taking fliers down. Now he apparently searches for him on the internet while authorities have begun additional physical searches.
A year-and-a-half after his disappearance, searchers went back out in Washington County to look for Jaliek Rainwalker.
It has been more than eighteen months since police have conducted an active search for the boy, but on Wednesday they were back out on the Batten Kill in Greenwich, looking for any clues on his disappearance.
From morning into late afternoon, New York State forest rangers combed the Batten Kill shoreline while investigators plucked waterlogged debris from the underbelly of a huge mill.
Inside sources tell NEWS10 that this most recent search comes after a visit two weeks ago by a nationally recognized handler and her cadaver dogs.
