Police: Search for missing Miamisburg woman will continue Thursday 


UPDATE @ 2:33 p.m.

Miamisburg police and FBI say there are areas of the park they have not yet covered and will return Thursday to search some more for missing Miamisburg woman Chelsey Coe.

UPDATE @ 9:05 a.m.: A Miamisburg woman may have been at the Greene County park in June 2017 about the same time police believe she disappeared, Sgt. Jeff Muncy said.

PREVIOUS REPORT: Law enforcement search for missing woman in Sugarcreek MetroPark

Evidence involving Chelsey Coe perhaps being at Sugarcreek MetroPark at that time led federal, state and local law enforcement to close the 618-acre park and search it Tuesday and Wednesday, Muncy said.

"There's nothing concrete that says she's here," he said Wednesday. "This is just one lead we're investigating and we're trying to do it thoroughly to find her."

Muncy said information leads police to believe the park may have been one of the last places Coe was seen.

If authorities find nothing today, the search at the park will end, the sergeant said.

Police continue to have a person of interest in Coe’s disappearance, but investigators have not disclosed details about the person.
