Smithfield, NC – The Johnston County Sheriff’s Office is continuing the search for two missing children lost during flash flooding on Galilee Road.

Specialty teams are onsite and searching the Neuse River on boats and while other teams search along the creek and river banks.  The Sheriff has requested that others not enter the river with personal boats and/or kayaks.  The water is high and the current is swift.

“We appreciate the communities understanding of this request” said Sheriff Steve Bizzell.
