MCPD: Search for missing infant has “reached an impasse”

Mason City Police Chief Michael Lashbrook said today that the department’s investigation into the suspected birth and unknown location of a infant has “reach an impasse.”

In a press release, Lashbrook said that requests for public assistance “has yielded little information that would give hope to locating a baby or to its well-being.”

Lashbrook also said that the MCPD is still requesting information “in hopes of a breakthrough.”  Anyone with information should call the Mason City Police Department at 641-421-3636.

An exhaustive search was conducted by the MCPD in and around the area of the Iowa Workforce Development offices on South Pierce over the last two days.  Police searched sewer and sewage lines, rooftops, neighborhoods and commercial business areas with no positive results.  “The search even extended to the North Iowa Landfill,” Lashbrook said.

Assistance was received from multiple personnel from the Charles City Police Department, North Iowa Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) which included two cadaver dogs, North Iowa Landfill personnel, Mason City Operations and Maintenance Division, Mason City Fire Department, Navratil Excavating, Iowa Workforce Development personnel and the Cerro Gordo County Medical Examiner.
