"Today, (Monday), the police department continues to lead organized searches for the missing boy. Approximately twenty officers and volunteers will search the land surrounding Comsat Drive in Germantown and the area of the Magruder Branch Trail in Damascus. A K-9 team from the Mid-Atlantic D.O.G.S. Search and Rescue is assisting in today's search," police said in a news release.
Police also have searched the Upper Magruder Branch Park off of Tralee Court in Damascus. Jane and William's good friends told police that Curtis Lopez knew the woods near their home in Damascus. Their worst fear: that Lopez might have killed the boy and dumped his body nearby.
Over the weekend, police searched the Damascus Recreational Park and the Little Bennett Regional Park in Clarksburg.
An 80-person group, including five K-9 teams, and seven mounted teams, searched for William from mid-morning to dusk, police said.
"Montgomery County Police detectives will continue to pursue leads and information obtained during this investigation, but at the present time will not disclose what type of information is being obtained nor how this information is developed," police said.
Captain Paul Starks, a spokesperson for the Montgomery County Police, says investigators have received leads that suggest McQuain's body may be located in a wooded area in Damascus.
Montgomery County Police will search for 11-year-old William McQuain again on Tuesday morning.
Curtis Lopez, McQuain's estranged husband, has been arrested and charged for murder in this case. Lopez has agreed to return from North Carolina to face charges of murdering McQuain.
Investigators released details of a search warrant in Charlotte Monday. They say they found victim Jane McQuain's credit card -- and a box cutter -- in a hotel room her estranged husband was sharing with another woman. The medical examiner says McQuain was stabbed and beaten to death.
Police got on to Lopez and his apparent girlfriend when Pleshette Caldwell crashed McQuain's car.
