Now, the intensifying hunt for the nearly 300 kidnapped schoolgirls. First lady Michelle Obama and secretary of state Hillary Clinton, joining the growing international chorus calling to bring back our girls. ABC's Martha Raddatz staying on this for us, joins us from Washington with more. Good morning, Martha. Reporter: Good morning, robin. There's such an outpouring of support for these girls. But for the parents of those schoolgirls, each day that goes by is more difficult than the last. A moment of silence for Nigeria's president this morning. But for the parents returning to the school for the first time, there's little faith in the government. This father wanting the world to know we don't feel Nigeria can help get our daughters back. But the world is listening. First lady Michelle Obama, tweeting this photo. And Hillary Clinton, giving a strong reaction to our robin Roberts. It's criminal. It's an act of terrorism. And it really merits the fullest response possible, first and foremost from the government of Niger Nigeria. Reporter: The Nigerian government is offering a $300,000 reward. But finding the girls will be an immense challenge. The search will focus in the northern wilderness, a remote swath of forth, six-times the size of yellowstone national park. The U.S. Is sending a ten-member military team to the capital. Specialists in logistics and intelligence.

You could have Nigerian security officials aboard those aircraft, listening. So, you've got someone who has the language skills. Reporter: The most important tool in finding those girls will be human intelligence, people on the ground. And that will be have to be up to the Nigerians. We have no one there, especially in those remote forests. But there's still a great deal of hope that at least some of these girls will be found.
