Miramar Police on Tuesday continued their search of area waterways looking for clues into the whereabouts of Vilet Torrez, who disappeared over a month ago, sources told NBC 6.
Police have not officially confirmed they are looking for Torrez.
Detectives and two cadaver dogs circled a small lake by boat and left a marker in one spot. The lake is off of Miramar Parkway just west of Red Road in an industrial area.
Police also searched an area of brush at Bass Creek Road near Interstate 75 and later moved to a small lake on Monarch Lake Blvd, which is just a few blocks from the Torrez home.
Her best friend, brother and sister-in-law found out about the search and showed up too.
Javier Blanco, her brother, said the family needs closure and are happy to see Miramar Police working to provide them with some answers.
"We're really interested in what they're doing and want to show our support as well," he said. "No, they haven't said anything to us. In fact, I didn't even know they were going to be here," he said.
Torrez's best friend Clarissa Garcia said she had mixed emotions.
"I'm sad but I'm happy in a way because maybe now we can get some closure on this and what really happened," she said.
