SHELBYVILLE, Ind. - Police spent more than 12 hours probing and digging into the ground behind a Shelbyville house after receiving a tip about a cold case from 2010.
Officials with the Shelbyville Police Department were called out to the 1200 block of Elm Street on reports of an investigation Tuesday.
Homeowner Scott Schuck said police woke him up at 10:30 a.m. Police told him they had a tip on a missing person’s case -- specifically a woman who went missing four years ago.
Schuck said this wasn’t the first time that police have searched in and around his home. He said it was the third time in about four years.
Schuck identified himself as the former boyfriend of Rebecca Cassidy. Cassidy was last seen in the area before she went missing in 2010.
"The last I (saw) her, she left the gate of my house. We had a little bit of a confrontation over my moped. That was the last I've seen of her. It hasn't been easy for me," Schuck said.
Schuck said police were probing his back yard, digging and taking buckets full of dirt. Police even brought in a tow truck to remove a shed from the back yard.
"They had some tip that ... she may be in an adjacent property, so they've been searching there, doing whatever they do. So, I'm OK with it. I want them to do whatever they have to do, take their time to do what they need to do," Schuck said.
Officials said police suspected foul play in Cassidy’s disappearance because she never tried to contact her loved ones.
Shelbyville police remained tight-lipped about the investigation. They would not confirm if their efforts have turned up any evidence or clues.
Police said they expected to continue their search throughout the night and into Wednesday morning.
