the most ideal outcome here, of course, is that stacie is safe somewhere and just hasn't been able to make contact. with 59 people killed and hundreds wounded, many still in the hospital, it's possible she could also be among the injured and unable to communicate.halloran says several sfpd officers have gone to las vegas to help ofc. etcheber search for his wife. halloran says several sfpd officers have gone to las vegas to help ofc. etcheber search for his wife. vinnie etcheber's brother al was also traveling to las vegas on monday to help with the search. he tells kron 4 that his sister in law is a fighter and that they have high hopes of finding her alive.sotshe's tough as nails. knowing her she probably turned around to try to help other people. who were victims of the shooting or went back to look for her husband. she's just someone who is sound and tough and that's why we are optimistic that she's going to pull through whereveer she is right now.in san francisco, charles clifford kron 4 news.
