Day 2 of search yields no major leads in Chelsey Coe case

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - Miamisburg Police will return to Sugarcreek Metropark on Thursday on continue their search for clues in the disappearance of a 25-year-old woman. Chelsey Coe disappeared last August.

Miamisburg Police and the FBI spent Wednesday searching new areas of the park. They started their search on Tuesday. 

"The park was broken down into several different areas. We've searched those areas or at least the bulk of those areas we wanted to search," explained Detective Jeff Muncy with Miamisburg Police.  

Sugarcreek Metropark spans over 600 acres. Police say it is one of the last places Coe was seen.

Coe is one of 5 women who've disappeared within a35-mile radius over recent months. All of the women have struggled with drugs. Some also had mutual friends. 

"Unfortunately, she [Coe] was involved in drugs, which got her involved in prostitution. She would sometimes go a period of time without speaking to her mom," explained Muncy.

Angie Proffit lives across the street from one of the park entrances.

"There are parts that are like prairie land. Then there are other parts that are really dense and lots of hills," explained Angie. 

Miamisburg Police say there is still no sign of Coe. In May, Detective Muncy said there was a strong person of interest in the case. He says that hasn't changed and he isn't ruling anyone out. 

"We are not getting tunnel vision to focus in one person. I haven't found her yet and it could be a whole series of things," said Muncy.

Searchers will be back tomorrow and plan to be done around noon.
