WHITMAN COUNTY, Wash. - On Saturday, members of the Spokane City/County Water Rescue Team will go to Whitman County to assist Sheriff Brett Myers with the search for the 2-year-old boy believed lost in Pine Creek.  The child has been missing two weeks and only a single shoe has been found to date. 

Two-year-old Avery Blakely is presumed dead.

The search for the boy began Thursday, March 26 after police believe he wandered away from his yard while the family was in the process of moving and fell in a creek.

Sheriff Brett Myers says a slipper found at Pine Creek matched the slippers the boy was wearing when he disappeared near the town of Malden.

The sheriff says more than 75 searchers looked for the boy but divers were unable to enter the creek that is murky and was running full.

A memorial service was held for Blakely on April 4 in the Rosalia High School gym.

The first search for the boy was called off Friday, March 27.
