Search for a missing mother
JASPER - by Ashley Gaston - She disappeared more than a year ago since then Jasper county deputies
Have been searching the internet and making phone calls in an effort to find 57-year old Kay McCoy.
Tuesday, for the first time, Law enforcement officers fanned out on the ground near McCoys home west of jasper to search for her. McCoy is a mother of four.
The doors are locked, investigators don't have a key to this motor home, but they have a search warrant.
I think it's weird that everything i have found out has happened, said Kristina Powell.
Kristina Powell is helping the jasper county sheriff's office.
Deputies are searching for her mother, Kay Kaycee" McCoy at her home on Farm Road 1747.
It has been a mystery and we haven't been able to find her, said Sheriff Mitchel Newman.
Deputies and a cadaver dog searched for McCoy in three houses, several cars and two boats on this property.
I believe Ms. McCoy was a doomsday prepper and she has lots of stuff, said Sheriff Newman.
Investigators searched this 2.5 acre piece of property and didn't find a break in the case. But McCoys daughter says while her mother is away she's left to pick up the mess she left behind.
She took a year planning to get us here, so she could stop, so she could quit doing, the caretaker the mom, so she could do her, said Powell.
Powell says her mother often talked about leaving the property and leaving her mentally challenged daughter with Powell.
Powell says whatever the plans, her mother could have called and let someone know something.
We have to find out what happened to her, and it's our job to find out Ms. McCoy is ok, and nothing foul play has been done, said Sheriff Newman.
The search ended Tuesday with no sign of McCoy.
Investigators can scratch this property off the list while they wait for a lead to take them somewhere else with the goal of bringing her home.
Investigators say none of McCoys four children reported her missing.
If you have any information about McCoy, call the Jasper County Sheriff's Office at 384-5417.
