Teams of volunteers Friday evening continued searching for the body of Keith Goldberg, the Las Vegas cab driver who went missing in January.
Two suspects have been charged with his murder, but his body has yet to be found. The search teams began scouring an area near Sunrise Mountain Friday afternoon and will continue throughout the night.
Red Rock Search and Rescue is now in its tenth week searching for Goldberg. There is a command post set up and volunteers have equipped themselves with shovels and flashlights.
"We're not going to give up, period," said Dave Cummings with Red Rock Search and Rescue.
"If it was our loved one, we'd want someone helping us," said Dianne Sperry, another Red Rock Search and Rescue member.
Cummings and Sperry have been searching since Goldberg first went missing. Goldberg was caught up in an alleged love triangle with Christopher and Georgene Ross. Both are now charged with Goldberg's murder but remain silent on the whereabouts of his body.
The only evidence that Goldberg's body might be in the area of Sunrise Mountain is a cellphone record that put Christopher Ross in the area for six hours around the time of Goldberg's disappearance.
"They're making us suffer, and they're making the family suffer. It's time to get the closure, and they need to help us find Keith's body," said Keith Goldberg's sister Jodi Goldberg.
Jodi Goldberg is stuck on the East Coast, but has been warmed by the generosity of the teams searching for his remains. The scorching southern Nevada sun called for a great deal of preparation.
"This pack is practically all water right now. It's 100-plus degrees out here and we have to say hydrated," said volunteer Robert Ferraro.
Search crews have already covered 50 square miles of rocks, hills and valley.
Jodi Goldberg told FOX5 that her brother's birthday is fast approaching and she couldn't think of a better gift than bringing him home.
