CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) -- Three retired detectives have joined in the search for 19-year-old Brigham Young University student Brooke Wilberger.

She is believed to have been kidnapped in Corvallis (Oregon) on May 24th.

Kurt Wuest and Bill Kennedy, both retired Lane County Sheriff's Office detectives, have joined the team at the Corvallis Police Department. The third is Jacqueline Meyer, a retired detective from the Ventura County Sheriff's Office in California.

They joined though Project Alert, run by the Virginia-based National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

The nonprofit organization was established in 1984 and helps families of abducted, endangered and sexually exploited children.

Wilberger vanished while she was working for her sister and brother-in-law at the Corvallis apartment complex they managed.
