Tulsa Police, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, and Tulsa Fire are using a new strategy to search for missing toddlers, Miracle and Tony Crook, who were last seen Friday morning.

TFD and OHP are currently in the water using SONAR equipment to search the pond at Shoreline Apartments. This is the same area they searched on Sunday but they hope the new tech will help. Police say they still have very little information other than a new picture showing the kids last seen at the Shoreline apartment complex near 21st and I-44 around 10 a.m. Police and troopers searched a creek about 6 miles from the complex on Tuesday using an OHP airboat.

They were only able to search a mile of the creek though because the airboat was too big to fit under a bridge.

Jeanne Pierce with Tulsa Police says their plan is now to focus their search back at this lake and these apartments

“So now we are going to clear this location and we’re going to head back to Shoreline apartments and we’re going to reassess and see if we can do some sonar searching within the pond that’s in the apartment complex,” said Pierce.
