(SELWYN) It has been 12 days since Lorraine Roach was last seen.
The ground search for the 58-year-old woman continued Thursday (May 23) after the search was suspended Wednesday (May 22) as Peterborough County OPP interviewed possible witnesses.
The command post was set up on Lily Lake Road Thursday morning and and members of the Central East Region OPP Emergency Response Team retraced their steps.
“As far as I know, they initiated the search again and they searched the area around where the vehicle was located and they broke off into grids,” explains Constable Iain McEwan.
Ms Roach was last seen when she left her Hilliard Street home at approximately 1:30 a.m. May 11. The 58-year-old woman was reported missing three days later.
Her Pontiac Montana van was found the same day near the access point to the Trans Canada Trail on Akinson Road. OPP have been scouring the area ever since with helicopters, the K-9 unit, all-terrain vehicles and a canoe, searching heavily-wooded areas and bodies of water.
“As long as information comes in, they will continue to search,” adds Const. McEwan.
He says police are still looking for the public’s assistance.
“There has to be someone out there that has seen her,” Const. McEwan says.
Despite many requests from Peterborough This Week the family has declined to comment on Ms Roach’s disappearance.
Ms Roach is described as 5-feet 4-inches tall with dark hair and brown eyes, She wa wearing a three-quarter length pleated coat and a pink sweater.http://www.mykawartha.com/news/article/1621919--search-resumes-for-lorraine-roach
