Dad of missing Md. Hoggle kids still searching


GERMANTOWN, Md. (WUSA9) -- Almost two weeks since two Maryland children went missing, volunteers and police are continuing to search for three-year-old Sarah Hoggle and two-year-old Jacob Hoggle.

Police have been focusing their search in the Germantown area and have searched more than 14,000 acres so far.

The children's mother, Catherine Hoggle, has been charged in their disappearance. Police are building a homicide case against Hoggle. They said they do not expect to find the children alive.

"If you find what we believe you will, we ask that you back away immediately. Do not touch anything," Montgomery County Police Captain Darren Francke said.

Father Troy Turner said he hasn't given up hope.
