Officials with the Dickson County Sheriff's Office have asked for volunteers with emergency services backgrounds to help in a large-scale search for Joe Clyde Daniels' body.

They asked for 30 to 50 adult volunteers with backgrounds in Law Enforcement, Fire Fighting, EMT, or Military Services to serve as team leaders in the search.

Officials asked that all leaders be physically capable of leading a group of community volunteers through mixed terrain. They must also have appropriate clothing, footwear and equipment.

Anyone who fit the above qualifications and are interested can meet at Freed Hardeman Dickson at The Renaissance Center, Room 105, Saturday, May 12 at 3 p.m. for a briefing, on the upcoming search including professionals and community volunteers planned for Saturday, May 19.

Sheriff's officials said they've been conducting ongoing searches on properties in and around Tennessee City; they've also followed up on all leads received over the last few weeks.

They said the Sheriff's Office and its deputies have received a lot of support.

"It has been a testimony to the goodness of Dickson County residents, out-of-county volunteers, local and neighboring emergency service partners, churches, businesses, surrounding communities, and states," the news release stated.

Officials also asked for local volunteers to help once again on Saturday, May 19. It will be the largest search conducted yet.
