On Tuesday, Red River Parish Sheriff Glen Edwards deployed Deputy Randy Thomas and K-9 Cephira to Black Bayou to assist the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office (CPSO) in the search for a missing teen presumed drowned. Following an alert by Cephira, the CPSO Dive Team located and recovered the victim.
In incidents such as this, it is important that agencies pool resources to complete the mission. It is our hope that the recovery will provide closure for the family.
