The search is expected to resume for an Iowa teenager who was reportedly abducted in late May.

According to a report by the Des Moines Register authorities plan to continue their search for 15-year-old Kathlynn Shepard by deploying boats on the Des Moines River, during the week of June 6, 2013.

An organized search for Shepard was suspended during the week of May 30 because officials said they ran out of places to look. Boats searching the river were pulled off due to rising water levels. Dayton Police Chief Nick Dunbar said local officials have continued to follow-up on leads received from the public, according to the Des Moines Register.

Shepard has not been seen since she and another girl were abducted on May 20, 2013 while walking hme from their bus stop after school.

The alleged abductor was Michael J. Klunder, who reportedly took the girls to a hog confinement. One girl escaped and ran to a nearby home.

Hundreds of volunteers and law enforcement officials have searched Webster, Boone, and Hamilton counties.

According to Dunbar, the search will cover some areas that have been searched, as well as areas that have not yet been covered.
