I'm not sure about this.  There was a flight missing in the mountains of NH a 
couple of years ago with a couple of private citizens on board and there was 
a massive search for the plane.  Just this week, a kid fell of a mountain in 
NH and a Navy helicopter was used to pick him off the side of a mountain.  
Costly large scale searches using government agencies and the Civil Air 
Patrol go on all the time, they just don't get that much attention.  Maybe 
there is a bigger search in the case, but the same thing would be done for 
the child of any president or any famous person.
