After spending the last five months looking for Dee Ann Warner elsewhere, detectives returned Monday to her rural property digging for hints that may lead them to her whereabouts.
“We’re just looking for evidence – any evidence that could point us toward her whereabouts or her well-being,” Lenawee County Sheriff Troy Bevier said.
Bevier’s Department was joined by the FBI, the Michigan State Police, and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources in the search for the 52-year-old Franklin Township resident.
Warner was last seen alive at the same address early on April 25. Since none of her cellphone or credit cards have been used.
On Monday, K-9 units, ground-penetrating radar, and a backhoe were brought to the scene in a bid to scout acres of surrounding fields for clues.
“We thought that this was a very prudent time to do an even more thorough search,” Bevier said. “What this is kind of a culmination of the work that we’ve been doing over the summer. We’ve been pretty much following up on every lead.”
