BOONVILLE, Ind. - Police are piecing together new information as the number of volunteers grows searching for a missing Indiana mother of two.
Warrick County Sheriff Brett Kruse told a large group of volunteers preparing to search for Kristy Kelley, of Boonville, on Monday that investigators are unsure what happened to her.
"What we know is that Kristy Kelley was at the VFW (in Boonville) at 1:30 Friday morning," Kruse told volunteers who have been staging at Studio Bee in Boonville. "We have video of what we think is her vehicle going past the Tastee-Freez out here at about (1:50 a.m.). The rest of it is speculation."
Kelley, 27, was reported missing Friday after she did not show up to work later that day. Her vehicle is described as a Silver 2003 Nissan Xterra with Indiana license plate SZF858.
Kruse said authorities have yet to find any evidence to suggest foul play in Kelley's case. However, authorities also reminded volunteers not to do anything to compromise any evidence in case a criminal case materialized.
Groups of volunteers searched much of the area over the weekend, starting on Saturday morning. Kelley's disappearance was announced by law enforcement Friday night.
Randy Beard, Studio Bee's executive director, said the facility will be used as a staging area for as long as it needs to be.
Kelley, a mother of two, is described as petite. She has brown hair and blue eyes. Police said there is a Muensterman Motors sticker on the back of her SUV.
Kelley's mother, Kathy Scales told WEHT-TV she's a "nervous wreck" trying to find out what happened to her daughter.
"This is my daughter. I will do whatever I have to," Scales said. "The community, the friends, yes, that is powering me. That is giving me the strength to go on."
Anyone who wants to join the search is asked to check in at Studio Bee first. The center can also be reached by phone at 812-897-5378.
Anyone with information about Kelley is asked to call the Warrick County Sheriff's Office at 812-897-6180.
