BOKEELIA, Fla.- An old fire station in Bokeelia now serves as a temporary command center in the search for Amy Patterson.
This same group combed through wooded areas for Caylee Anthony and Natalee Holloway. Now they've teamed up with the Lee County Sheriff's Office to look for Patterson, who was reported missing three months ago.
"In these circumstances its always best to have a second set of eyes so we're very glad they asked us to come on in and provide some assistance," said Brian Fallon with Texas Equusearch.
About 20 Equusearch members turned out early Saturday to scour pine island by foot and on horseback for any sign of the missing teacher.
"We're looking for anything. I hate to say that but the reality is there's a variety of things you can always find and certainly if anything would lead to something that would be wonderful," Fallon continued.
The search started not far from the home Amy Patterson and her boyfriend Daniel Proctor lived in at the time of her disappearance.
Neighbors looked on as their street once again became the heart of the investigation.
"I think its too late. They should have done this a long time ago. It's pretty scary to have to have the horses out here and the search still going on," said neighbor Gloria Sabella.
The Eequusearch team plans to stay in southwest Florida through the weekend.. hoping they can bring some answers and closure to Patterson's friends and family.
"It would be a nice thing to put all of this to peace already especially for her family. For herself. Nobody deserves this its just not right," Sabella continued.
If nothing turns up this weekend they will keep the case open and consider searching again.
