Search for Debris at Toledo Bend

(AP) -- Underwater cameras will be used at an East Texas reservoir to look for shuttle Columbia debris. All seven astronauts died yesterday when Columbia broke apart and burned over Texas.

Sabine County Sheriff Tom Maddox Sunday said the search is being done by air and by boat, including the Toledo Bend Reservoir area. Maddox also says several teams of 80 to 100 people have been doing ground searches Sunday, in a 250 square mile area.

Also, NASA has warned the public against trying to sell alleged shuttle Columbia debris. It's all government property and is needed for the investigation into the shuttle disaster. Debris has been found in a number of East Texas counties.
