Officials said Friday they are rebranding the search as a "recovery mission" because they believe Huffstutler would have been able to travel through the woods and make contact by now.
On Friday, crews will still be conducting a search around the river. People will be walking the banks, divers will be in the water and boaters will travel up and down the area to look for Huffstutler.
