Local Teen Still Missing

Posted: Updated:

The search for a missing teen continues.
Moe Sed has been missing for more than three weeks.
He is a refugee from Burma and a student at Waterloo West High School. 

KWWL's Jessica Hartman joined volunteers canvasing the Cedar Valley on Saturday.

Dozens of volunteers splitting up to continue searching.
The search for Moe Sed expanding into the trail system in the Cedar Valley area. Volunteers looking for signs of Moe Sed or his bike with one orange and one blue tire rim.

"He really enjoyed fishing in those areas and riding his bike and being out in the woods. I think, probably, it reminded him of his home in Thailand," said Catherine Wager, Moe Sed's teacher.
Catherine and Liz Wagner, two of his teachers who have help spear head the efforts to find Moe Sed.
"I know that's what he was last seen with is a bike. I just feel like we are looking for a needle in a hay stack and how do you ever search?" said Liz Wagner, Moe Sed's teacher.
"There is just a tone of area," said Catherine.

They were just one of more than 10 search parties covering local parks and trails.
"As we were out, knowing that we weren't the only ones out there. knowing that we could cover a lot more ground," said Liz.

The search did not turn up any clues, but they aren't giving up.
"I think until we have answers or until Moe Sed comes home, I don't think either of us are going to give up or give up hope that we are going to find him and bring him home," said Catherine.
