Kenai Search continues for missing family of four

Kenai police say they’re keeping up their search efforts for a family of four missing since May 27.

Twenty-two-year-old Rebecca Adams; her daughters, 5-year-old Michelle Hundley and 3-year-old Jaracca Hundley; and her boyfriend, 37-year-old Brandon Jividen, disappeared the day after Memorial Day.

“Search efforts in wooded areas by law enforcement are still occurring, but have been isolated to areas of potential interest” based on information police have received, according to the Kenai Police Department. Community volunteers have been searching, too, and police have provided information and maps to aid their efforts, the Peninsula Clarion reports.

Volunteers on ATVs and horseback canvassed trails around Wildwood Correctional Facility on the outskirts of Kenai on Tuesday while a pilot, Joe Dilley, offered his time to fly over the Kenai and Nikiski area to help in the search, according to the Clarion. The searchers, some of whom did not know the family but have committed their time, were advised to tell the police if they came across clues or anything suspicious.

A line search for the missing family is set for 10 a.m. Saturday at the trail at the end of California Street. Search organizer Lanell Adams, Rebecca’s sister, told the Clarion she’d like to see about 80 people show up and help out. Kenai police said Thursday investigators are still seeking additional background on the family.

“We are encouraging any friends, associates, or acquaintances of the missing persons to come forward with whatever information they may have,” KPD said, adding such information could include direct or indirect contact with the family in the past several months or “information about them that is even older.”

Tipsters are being asked to call KPD at 907-283-7879 and speak with an investigator.
