The growing manhunt in the west. The search for the suspect believed to have kidnapped a 16-year-old girl. This evening what about a witness said he saw. And rescuer searching acres. In hide idaho. Reporter: Today, heavily armed s.W.A.T. Teams in helicopters launched into the idaho wilderness. Day six in the search for murder SUSPECT james DiMaggio and the girl he's suspected of kidnapping, 16-year-old hannah anderson. We know that any piece of information, any piece of evidence, any clue we can find, could be what we need to get hannah home safely. Reporter: Dimaggio is suspected of killing hannah's 8-year-old brother, ethan, and their mother christine last sunday at his home near san diego, then burning it to the ground. POLICE said DiMaggio had an unusual infatuation with hannah. I know hannah did say she was a little creeped out when jim did tell her he had a crush on her. Reporter: The pair vanished, until wednesday, when a horseback rider spotted them in iowa. They had backpacks on, they spotted a tent, and so, they were obviously camping in that area. As far as we know, it didn't look like she was being held against her will. Reporter: Dimaggio's car was discovered friday on the edge of the river of no return the river of no return wilderness. DiMAGGIO IS CONSIDERED AN AVID Outdoorsman. Today, his family had this message -- "we want you and hannah to come home alive. This is a tragedy. You can't turn back the clock, but you can change the future." And tonight, there are more than 200 federal and local cops on the search. Smoke from nearby wildfires is making visibility tough, and with so much terrain to cover, it's a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack.
