Ground search resumes in Whitby for missing teacher

Jeffrey Boucher hasn't been seen since January

Days after police revealed that they found a shoe believed to belong to missing Whitby teacher Jeffrey Boucher a ground search will be conducted in the area where the footwear was found.

Boucher has been missing since January when it's believed that he went out for a morning run and never came back.

The discovery of the shoe is the biggest breakthrough for investigators who had never found a trace of the high school teacher.

Investigators will be searching close to a pavilion just east of the Whitby Harbour where the show was found. Police are confident the shoe belongs to the husband and father.

The area was searched shortly after his disappearance, but police say this ground search will be focused on the area where the shoe was found.

Durham Police are also looking to find a day to bring a Toronto Police boat with sonar to search the shoreline.
