As volunteers continue their search for 11-year-old Terry Smith tonight, some residents in the missing boy's Menifee neighborhood are complaining about a lack of respect for their property by some individuals.

A former resident of Helen Lane -- the street where the boy lives -- said he has spoken to neighbors who have experienced property damage and thefts they attribute to search team members.

"Neighbors have been reporting searchers climbing their fences and destroying them, even when people were home to open the gates, and stealing tools off their property while searching," said the former Menifee resident, who asked not to be identified. "Everyone understands how important this is, but disrespect and theft are totally unnecessary."

Although volunteer search efforts were much more organized today than Monday, the rush of people at the command center in front of Menifee Market on Scott Road has at times been hectic. Tonight, an electronic street sign warning drivers and pedestrians to be cautious was posted.
