The news of Remy's disappearance spread quickly. Once Timber made the call, more than 100 officers and volunteers showed up on their farm. As night began to fall, flashlights were brought to their home. People put on their jackets as they prepared for a long night. Timber received kind words full of optimism, but nothing helped. How would she ever be able to forgive herself?

“It was stressful and emotional. We were all out there just walking back and forth, from one end to the other, yelling her name,” explained John Paul Kopp, a family friend. Several hours passed. Neighbors, friends, family, complete strangers, and police officers were searching for Remy. People were bumping into one another while they were walking back and forth, calling out for Remy. Timber was exhausted, but ignoring the pain in her legs, she kept moving forward. But that's when the unthinkable happened.

The lights began to fade. You could see the flickers of light begin to die in the distance. Timber turned to look at her friend John, but he disappeared as darkness fell. Her heart was pounding in her ears. "You don’t hear well in the corn either. So, when someone’s yelling your name, I mean you hear them, but you don’t know where it’s coming from,” explained a volunteer. Timber put down the torch. There was nothing left. She began to cry. That's when the sheriff decided to end the search for the night.

Timber wasn't able to sleep that night. She stayed awake and continued to worry about her daughter. She found herself jumping at every sound in hopes that it was Remy. As the sun rose, Timber went outside to find a lot of the same faces from the night before, along with some new ones. As she picked up Fat Heath's water bowl, she heard a chopping noise rising in the distance. There were two helicopters flying above her, making their way to the field. Timber wasn't going to give up.
Continuing To Look For Remy

Just as they did the night before, the group of volunteers made their way to the corn. They searched the area, calling out for Remy. Timber's brother Quinlin drove from Kentucky to Missouri to help look for Remy. Timber explained a surprising truth about the corn. "The corn fields are like razor blades, cutting you, especially for a child," she explained. Quinlin pushed through the field, determined to find his niece. That's when he heard a bark.
