NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — David Marshburn is an investigator who's had success in other missing person's cases. He's volunteering to help find Joe Clyde Daniels and just conducted the first organized search in months.

Marshburn and his cadaver dogs searched acres of territory in Dickson County. NewsChannel 5 went along with him.

“I'm looking at the map where we did the cellphone locations and we did triangulations and we are going to 1A, 1B and 1C,” Marshburn said.

The cellphone pings are allegedly linked to Joe Clyde's father, Joseph, who is accused of homicide.

Among other things, Marshburn found a bag and hacksaw, which was turned over to authorities. They now say those two items are not related to the case.

Marshburn does say he's cultivated new leads which could help eventually find the body, which is key to the criminal prosecution.
