INDIANAPOLIS — The search for a missing Indianapolis father and his three children turned to a south side lake Monday night.
Monday evening, Moorman's family searched the lake near Troy Avenue and Bluff Road. Police and family members said the lake is the last place where the missing man's cellphone pinged on Thursday, July 7.
IMPD tells 13News there are no tracks going into the water and they don't plan on calling in a search team Monday night.
Police also confirmed they found a baby bottle near the water and collected it for potential evidence.
The black 2009 Saab Moorman is believed to have been driving at the time of his disappearance has been added to the city's Flock camera system, which reads license plates to help locate vehicles involved in an investigation.
IMPD detectives received a tip Monday they hoped will lead them to a father and his three children who have been missing for several days.
Boone County dispatchers received a call Monday from a worker at the Whitestown Cracker Barrel, saying she thought she recognized 27-year-old Kyle Moorman and his three kids, 5-year-old Kyle Moorman II, 2-year-old Kyannah Holland and 1-year-old Kyran Holland.
A Boone County sheriff's deputy went to the restaurant to check the surveillance footage from Sunday night. The deputy believes people on the recording matched the description of Moorman and his children. However, family members looked at the video and do not believe it shows Moorman and his children.
All information and footage was turned over to the IMPD Missing Persons Unit, according to the Boone County Sheriff's Office.
As of late Monday afternoon, IMPD said there were no updates in the case.
A search party scoured the White River in downtown Indianapolis Sunday for Moorman and his children as detectives asked the public for help in finding them.
Family members told 13News that Kyle told his family he and the kids were going fishing at 11 p.m. on Wednesday night.
They drove away from the 1000 block of South Sherman Drive in a black 2009 Saab with green headlights.
They haven't been seen or heard from since.
Kyle's family said he didn't pack diapers or clothes. They said they were especially concerned because one of the children takes medication and, when they disappeared, Kyle didn't bring the medication with him.
IMPD also confirmed at least one of the children may be in need of medical care.
Kyle Moorman is 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighs 125 pounds. He has brown hair and hazel eyes.
His son, Kyle Moorman II, is 3 feet, 7 inches tall and weighs 40 pounds. He has blonde hair and blue eyes.
Kyannah is 2 feet tall and weighs about 15 pounds. Investigators say she has blonde hair and blue eyes. Kyannah was last seen wearing a striped pink and blue romper.
Kyran is 2 feet, 6 inches tall and weighs 25 pounds. Kyran has blonde hair and blue eyes. Kyran was last seen wearing a diaper and a striped shirt.
IMPD confirmed a missing persons report has been made and an investigation is ongoing. In the meantime, the family is taking search efforts into their own hands.
On Sunday afternoon, they all went to search one of Kyle's regular fishing spots along the White River.
They gathered near the Indianapolis Zoo and Oliver Avenue and spread out from there.
This was not the first time they've searched the area. Kyle's stepdad, Teddy Green, told 13News that the family has checked along the river for the last few days and searched nearby ponds and lakes.
Teddy said Kyle has never done this before and added that they have a close-knit family and "everybody sticks together."
"I just want my babies to come home," said Renee Moorman, Kyle's mother. "He wouldn't do this to me. I think Kyle might be hurt. Maybe he fell and hit his head.
"I'm going to keep walking this river until I find my babies," Moorman said.
