Officers started checking businesses in the area, following Birdwell’s boot tread prints in the snow. The tread prints lead Officer Tom Ortiz to an unlocked Jeep Cherokee parked on the lot of a Riverside Drive business. Ortiz looked inside of the vehicle and saw a snow imprint on the floor board and seat.  The imprint looked like the tread on the bottom of Birdwell’s boots. The owner of the Cherokee was located and told officers there had been a GPS inside of the vehicle.

Officers found Birdwell again and looked at the GPS in his possession and found the owner’s home address information programmed into it.
