Samantha Koenig’s family and friends hope a new poster will help stir up information about the main person of interest in the abduction case, Israel Keyes.
The new flyer reads shows two prominent photos of Keyes along with information about his arrest last week in Texas.
A small group of volunteers gathered Monday at Common Grounds Espresso -- the site of Koenig's abduction -- where they picked up a stack of flyers and then fanned out across Anchorage and Eagle River, to tack the posters up at busy intersections and pass them out at storefronts.
“We're going to be hitting a lot of construction sites, Home Depots, Lowe's, a lot of places that Israel Keyes might've shopped for his business,” said Michelle Tasker, a Koenig family spokesperson.
Anchorage police say Keyes is the owner of Keyes Construction, a small general contracting company.
A spokesperson for the U.S. Marshals said Keyes was still in custody in Texas Monday, awaiting a flight back to Alaska.
They would not say when Keyes would be transported, citing security reasons.
Anchorage police say two detectives who were in Texas investigating Keyes have since returned to Alaska.
APD would not say what, if anything, the investigators were able to gather.
