Coral’s Family keep hopes alive

Coral’s Family keep hopes alive

The family of Coral Burrows say they haven’t give up hope up that the missing six year old will be found.

"We’re searching as hard now as we were on Wednesday. We want Coral found," says Coral’s aunt and uncle Toni and Aaron Lansdown from Taihape.

"We want people to keep positive that Coral is out there and will be found. Please don’t give up hope. Help us find her."

The couple say that Jeanna, Coral’s dad Ron Burrows, and the rest of the Cremen and Burrows families are "united as one" in their search for Coral.

"Our spirit is high. We’re searching for Coral."

Sixty family and volunteer searchers were out today in the area. "We’re coordinating our search with the police one and we’re always pleased to see help from volunteers, especially from people who know the area."

They’re also encouraged by the support from local businesses for food and equipment.
