Search for missing teen frustrates officials

WATERBORO, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Hundreds of volunteers and days of searching have gotten officials no closer to understanding what happened to 15-year-old Jaden Dremsa, who was last seen leaving his Waterboro home Thursday afternoon.

"With as much as we've done, and as much investigation, yes, I would have [expected to find something by now]," said Lt. Kevin Adam from the Maine Warden Service.

Wardens' have searched for a total of three days on Sunday and covered a two mile radius of land around Dremsa's home. Wardens were able to use a helicopter for an air search Sunday.

"It's frustrating for us, frustrating for the family, frustrating for the people who have come out to help out," said Lt. Adam. "It's just one of those unique cases right now, and until we get to the end, we don't know what's in the middle."

On Monday, Wardens plan to focus their search on Lake Arrowhead, which is near Dremsa's home. According to Lt. Adam, they will lower the water about two feet to allow for divers to see the bottom of the lake better.

They were not expecting to have as many volunteer searchers on Sunday, because of the Mother's Day holiday, but more than 150 people helped with grounds searchers, along with dozens of trained searchers.

Dremsa is described as being 5'9'' and about 140 pounds with shoulder length brown hair.

He was last seen wearing jeans, a black shirt and had skateboard style sneakers.
