A grassroots effort from northeast Wisconsin hoping to bring some of the evacuees back to the Badger State is back empty handed.

Darius Parks was among the volunteers that filled four buses from Sturgeon Bay driving to Louisiana to help. He says once they arrived in New Orleans all the civilians had left. So, they followed the evacuees to Texas and found out that they would rather stay there than come up to Wisconsin.

A Fox Valley group planning a similar trip says they will now try to find evacuees looking to come to Wisconsin before they head down to help.
