Wausau. Wis., July ment that the search for Mary Lawan- do, 21-year-old girl wanted in connec- tion with the mysterious attack upon her step-mothe Mrs, Walter Lawando. early last week, would be extended to all sections of central Wisconsin was made by Sheriff -Arthur Siewert 01 Marathon county late yesterday after an all day search of the big swamp near the Lawando home south of Rothschild had revealed no trace of the missing- girl. Aided by an airplane which circled back and forth over the swamp, a small posse of experienced woodsmen visited every section of the boggy and forested morass that could be penetrated by human beings, but could find no trace to indicate that the glri had sought refug-e_in the swamp. Could Not "Live in Swamp At the conclusion of the search Sheriff' Siewert and Undersheriff Louis Hinrich both expressed the opinion that Miss Lawando cannot be in hid- ing in the swamp or woods. If she is in that part of the counlry it is the belief of the officers that she is being- assisted and cared for by friends. "It would be impossible to live in the swamp even for one said Sheriff Siewert, are irinumer- able and deer flies, that make existence almost intolerable even in the day time." Aviator Mark Hubbard, who made several trips across and around and looked over the surround- ing territory, stated that he saw no sign of recent human habitation. The swamp itself is a gruesome place and apparently its only inhabitants arc the mosquitos and deer Hies, a few birds, and the reptiles which hide in the mud and ooze amid the rank vegetation which grows in the unshaded portions. In the woocv- ed places it is dark and forbidding, awe-inspiring even when the sun is shining its brightest. Believe .Mind Effected Friends of Miss Lawando express the fear that her mind has become ef- fected and that she is either dead or is being secreted by someone who s; mpatlmes with her condition. The om'cers are inclinded to accept tirs theoiy and are now working- aion those lines. As the case stands at piesent they have very little to work on and the investigations are proceed- ing more or less in the Mrs. Lawando continues to improve at the Wausau Memorial hospital but has been unable to throw any light on the identity of her assailant.
