Police removed several items from a Johnson County home Wednesday in hopes of uncovering clues in the disappearance of a Greenwood teen.
The home, near Smith Valley Road, belongs to Joseph Nowicki, 53. Nowicki was a friend of Brookley Louks' father, RTV6 reported.
Louks, 19, (pictured, right) was reported missing June 24. Louks used to mow Nowicki's lawn and do other chores for him, according to her mother, Kim Louks.
Greenwood police searched the home for about 10 hours, starting around 7:30 a.m. Investigators took a computer, Nowicki's van, several guns, and other items, police said.
The items will be analyzed at a laboratory Thursday, police said.
Nowicki was on a fishing trip in Tennessee on Wednesday, police said. Authorities were not looking for him, police said.
Kim Louks said she was hoping that she would learn what happened to her daughter.
"I really don't care who did what to whom, I just want her home," she said.
