‘Needle in a haystack’: Search for missing UNF student comes up short on third day

UNFPD and JSO canvassed 13 square miles of woods surrounding The Flats Tuesday for more than eight hours in the search for missing student George Louissaint Jr.

“We are no closer to finding a solution than when we started this morning unfortunately,” UNF Police Chief Frank Mackesy said of the day’s efforts.

Because the coordination and the amount of resources, it’s not simple going into the woods and find another person’s body.

Macksey said looking for Louissaint is like looking for a needle in a haystack.
