Derek Valcourt has details on where police were searching and why.
Police will only say investigative information led them to search two parks in Montgomery County– one in Damascus, the other in Clarksburg.
Teams of police officers, volunteers and even cadaver dogs searched the woods in Damascus Regional Park all Sunday. They’re following the latest lead in the disappearance of 11-year-old William McQuain.
His mother, 51-year-old Jane McQuain, was found beaten and stabbed to death in their Germantown home Wednesday night. The boy’s stepfather, Curtis Lopez, was arrested in North Carolina and charged with the murder. But 11-year-old William McQuain hasn’t been seen in weeks.
Police won’t say where that information came from, only that nearly 80 people spent the day searching the hundreds upon hundreds of acres of woods in the two parks for the little boy’s body, finding nothing.

“The path goes right to our house,” Lori Stegeman explained. “My daughter and I took the dogs out and we were just like heartbroken imagining if we found something, what would we do and how horrible.”
