Update – June 19, 6 p.m.: The search for 17-year-old Peachtree City resident Sadie Thurner who has been missing since June 15 continued June 18 with choppers flying areas on the northwest side of the city. Police believe Thurner is in the Fayette County or Coweta County area.

Peachtree City Police Department spokesman Chris Hyatt said the runaway juvenile is still missing and the investigation is ongoing. There is still concern for the juvenile’s well being based on his current medical condition.

Hyatt said a helicopter from Spalding County flew the area during the daytime hours while a Ga. State Patrol helicopter flew during the nighttime hours. Both choppers used FLIR (forward-looking infrared radar) to aid the search. FLIR is used to detect body heat.

The searches for Thurner, who also goes by the name Kaiden, included the wooded areas around the Fairfield Drive/Wisdom Road area where the teenager was last seen, and other areas on the west side of Ga. Highway 74 North such as MacDuff Parkway and Senoia Road.
