Reporter from Tuesday, May 20th:
From what police can tell, 36 year old Christina Dean left her home around 9 p.m. Saturday with just the clothes on her back.
Her mother has come up from Florida to implore the public for help in the search.
\"She has a son that's four and one that's six,\" mother Nancy Chamberlin told CBS 58 News. \"They pray that God will bring their mommy back.\"
On Tuesday afternoon, a group of about a dozen friends split up and searched a wooded area near Beloit for any possible trace.
\"Under bridges is normally a place people could be,\" Vernon Hershberger said. \"So we want to check out all those places.\"
Hershberger admitted he's just a farmer, and that the volunteers are friends with no real experience in finding missing people, but they felt they had to give it a try.
