Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Volunteers with Red Rock Search and Rescue loaded up their gear and headed out into the desert, to look for the body of Keith Goldberg, a Las Vegas cab driver who was killed in January.
“We've been searching for his body since April,” said David Cummings, the commander of the rescue team. “We've probably run close to 30 missions. We’ve covered 80 square miles of desert, plus.”
Thursday, they combed the area around Three Kids mine, an abandoned magnesium mine off Lake Mead Parkway.
“We have very little information, very few clues. One of the clues is a ping off the Lake Las Vegas cell tower, which is less than a mile from where we are now.”
Goldberg’s family lives on the east coast, but they have been in constant contact with Red Rock Search and Rescue. And they’re thankful these volunteers are continuing to work on the case, since they know law enforcement doesn’t always have the resources to do so.
“They called me this weekend, we had the whole family on a conference call. They thanked us and encouraged us to keep it up.”
Cummings say he doesn’t need any encouragement. This has become a personal mission for him.
“The DA probably has a rock solid case without Keith. But the family needs Keith. So we’re going to stick with it, and find him, no matter how long it takes.”
Volunteers say they’ll resume their search Saturday.
