The Town of Raymond also sharing some information on its Facebook page late Monday:

We appreciate everyone’s interest in trying to locate Myles. However please do not congregate at the town office as the Lethbridge and Area Search and Rescue are utilizing it as their base of operation and large crowds at this location could interfere with their efforts.

If you would like to help look for Myles, you are welcome to drive around the community but please do not get out of your vehicles as it could interfere with the police dog’s ability to pick up a trail.
