Here’s three questions this news organization is looking for answers to:

1. What did investigators find at the home?

Investigators used ground-penetrating radar and removed a small deck behind a Lower Miamisburg Road home as part of their search for the missing woman, but did not announce Tuesday whether they had found anything.

2. Who had been living in the at the 551 address?

In searching the Lower Miamisburg Road property, authorities told the current occupants “that they could not remain,” Sedlak said. In addition, when the search started, residents of the street — which is just west of the Great Miami River — were told not to leave for “several hours.”

3. What happened to not just Chelsey Coe, but also other local women reported missing at the time?

When the missing report was filed in September about Coe, she followed other cases of missing women all living within a 35-mile radius from cities along Interstate 71/75. One woman, a Middletown native, has since been found living in Kentucky. Though as of March, besides Coe there were still four missing women from Middletown and a missing woman from Springfield.
