There could be a new lead in the disappearance of Xavior Harrelson. He’s the 11-year-old boy from Montezuma who disappeared May 27 near his home. Mitch Mortvedt is with the Iowa Department of Public Safety.
“The DCI is assisting the Poweshiek County Sheriff’s Office…as part of the investigation (with) information that we have received that has led us to the Fox Forest area of Poweshiek County.”
Mortvedt talks about the search.
“It started this (Thursday) morning and it’s open-ended and will go as long as the investigators and agents on scene determine that it needs to.”
Mortvedt says the investigation into Xavior’s disappearance is ongoing and he cannot comment on what led law enforcement to the Fox Forest County Recreation Area in Poweshiek County.
