A new phase in the search for missing autistic teenager Jake Wilson is scheduled to begin in La Porte City on Tuesday (May 15, 2018). An excavation company plans to bring in heavy equipment to remove large debris in Wolf Creek near where it flows into the Cedar River. A $10,000 donation from the Black Hawk County Gaming Association (BHCGA) is covering the cost of the operation. Association president and former Waterloo Mayor Tim Hurley presented the check to La Porte City Fire Rescue Monday afternoon. “We don't need any thanks, the gratitude goes the other way,” Hurley said.
