The Texas group organizing a massive search for a missing 22-year-old Fairfield girl is temporarily suspending the search for the rest of the weekend.

Texas EquuSearch founder Tim Miller says the search is being suspended due to the extreme heat in the area and to give searchers time to "decompress." Miller will be returning to Texas for the rest of the weekend to help with a fundraiser for the organization.

On Saturday, volunteers participated in long day of searching for Katelyn Markham, utilizing divers and horse teams. Markham was last seen by her fiance August 14th.

Texas EquuSearch is scheduled to resume their search on Tuesday.
