Funds are being raised to offer a reward for information on the whereabouts of a missing Miamisburg woman who has been the focus of multi-day searches involving federal, state and local investigators.
An account has been created in hopes of discovering the location of Chelsey Coe, who police said they have reason to believe disappeared in June 2017.
Coe was 25 when her mother, Shula Woodworth, reported her missing in September. That prompted an investigation by Miamisburg police that has led to searches involving the FBI and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
Police have said they think it’s unlikely that Coe is still alive, and Woodworth has said she is seeking closure regarding her daughter. The goal, according to the account, is to raise $5,000.
“Chelseys been missing for a year now her family and friends want to be able to bring her home so we’re doing this fund raiser so we can do that,” according to gofundme account posted on Woodworth’s Facebook page. “This money is to be used as a reward for information as to her whereabouts. We appreciate any and all help thanks in advance for your support.”
Last week federal and local investigators closed Sugarcreek MetroPark in Greene County for the better part of three days while they used dogs in seeking clues of Coe’s whereabouts.
The efforts at the 618-acre park came about two months after the FBI and the Ohio BCI joined Miamisburg police in searching Coe’s last known address on Lower Miamisburg Road.
That search in early May involved closing sections of the road, digging on land where Coe had lived and searching neighboring properties.
