An extensive search has been underway for the past week. Search and Rescue, along with various other organisations have worked tirelessly to find Brenda. Sunday was the last co-ordinated search and the family has been overwhelmed by the support and love from the community. Hundreds of volunteers have joined the search over several days. Lee Swales, Scriven's son-in-law, says "We would like to thank every individual, authority and community based group who has helped with the search. We continue to put one foot in front of the other and will keep searching for her until we have answers".
The family has established a fund in Scriven's name to raise funds for the search. Swales said they plan to establish a non-profit company in Brenda's name to with the dual purpose of funding K-9 search and rescue in the private and public sectors. Any excess funds in the Searching for Brenda Fund will be transferred into the non-profit for the K9 Search & Rescue. "Our first trained K-9 will be called Brenda," he added.
