Officials: Nothing ties four missing women cases together

Posted: Updated:

Tensions are high throughout the Tri-State as four women have disappeared within the last six weeks.

Law enforcement across southern Indiana and southern Illinois are searching for the four women.

The first is 16-year-old Megan Nichols of Fairfield, Illinois. She has been missing since July 3.

Police have been working with the FBI to locate her, but every lead has come up empty.

In Evansville, detectives have been interviewing people and tracking down leads in connection with the disappearance of 30-year-old Joelle Lockwood. She was last seem July 9 leaving a friends house on Park St.

In Warrick County, 27-year-old Kristy Kelley went missing in the early morning house of August 15. Detectives say she was last seen leaving the VFW in Boonville.

Investigators and thousands of volunteers have searched all over the county for her.

Gibson County law enforcement is searching the White River for 49-year-old Dara Fine. She was last seen the night of August 17. Deputies believe she went to the Hazelton Boat Ramp on her own accord.

"We have not found a common denominator in any of the three missing person cases in southwest Indiana at this point, but that doesn't mean that we're not looking at the possibility that they are connected," said Sgt. Jason Cullum.

Warrick County officials are now taking a closer look at surveillance video from the Tastee Freeze in Boonville.

Warrick County Sheriff Brett Kruse says an SUV that could potential be Kristy Kelley's is seen driving past around the same time she left the VFW.

Cullum says they are in close contact with other investigating agencies, but he repeats there is nothing that ties the cases to one another.

"We'll continue to investigate the cases independently, but keeping an open mind that they could be connected," said Cullum.
