SALT LAKE CITY-- The search by volunteers

looking for missing jogger Lori Hacking was temporarily called off

today, but will resume later with specialized teams, a family

spokesman said.

Scott Dunaway said the decision was not

related to any change in the direction of the police investigation

into Hacking's disappearance. Hacking, 27, has been missing since

July 19, when her husband Mark Hacking reported she had not returned

from a morning jog in City Creek Canyon.

Lori Hacking, a Wells Fargo employee who was

five weeks pregnant, is now feared dead, and her husband has become

the focus of the police investigation. Hundreds of Utahns have

volunteers to help search for her in the week since she vanished.

Dunaway said this morning the length of time

Lori Hacking has been missing has dampened the family's hopes of

finding her alive. "They understand the reality of eight days," he


Meanwhile, police returned with night lights

and cadaver dogs Monday night to search the Salt Lake County

landfill, which already had been searched before.

At the time of Lori's disappearance, the couple were packing to

move to North Carolina. But after she vanished, police and family

members learned that besides lying about being accepted to medical

school, Mark Hacking had not even graduated from college.

Mark Hacking, a 28-year-old nightshift hospital orderly, has been

at a psychiatric hospital since police found him running around naked

in sandals the night after the search for his wife began. Police

refused to say whether he was being held involuntarily.

His family has hired defense attorney D. Gilbert Athay, who said

Monday he has spoken to Hacking many times since being hired

Thursday. He refused to characterize the conversations.

Three days before she disappeared, Lori

Hacking may have uncovered her husband's deceptions.

She received a phone call at her work,

started crying and went home early, said a colleague at Wells Fargo

Institutional Brokerage and Sales.

"I could hear her say things such as, 'But

he's already been accepted. He's already applied. This can't be

correct,' said Darren Openshaw, a Wells Fargo employee who overheard

the phone call about 2:15 p.m. on July 16.

Openshaw said he believes the caller was

from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.
