SAN ANTONIO - Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar put out an appeal for help in the search for a missing mother. The response, though, surprised even him.
More than 160 people gathered Tuesday morning in a parking lot on Overlook Parkway, volunteering to try to find Andreen McDonald, 29.
Missing woman described as fitness fanatic, motivator "This is great to see. Community policing at its best right here," Salazar said, visually taking in the huge crowd. "This is giving us the capabilities that now we can start expanding our horizons a little bit more."
Sheriff's deputies on Monday were mostly on their own, as they searched a wooded area about a quarter-mile from the North Bexar County home that McDonald shared with her husband and daughter.
The mother and businesswoman was reported missing Friday under what turned out to be suspicious circumstances.
Evidence found inside her home led sheriff's investigators to suspect foul play.
Salazar later referred to her husband, Andre McDonald, 40, as a suspect in the case.
The U.S. Air Force reservist was arrested on a charge of tampering with evidence and remains in jail.
According to Salazar, Andre McDonald has not expressed any concern for his missing wife or offered any assistance in locating her.
