GREENE COUNTY, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - The search for a missing Miamisburg woman continued Tuesday in Sugarcreek MetroPark.

Multiple agencies including Miamisburg Police and FBI set up inside the park, which was closed until later in the afternoon. Miamisburg Police Chief John Sedlak said the search will continue for three days as investigators look for Chelsey Coe. Coe disappeared in September 2017. Earlier this year, in May, the FBI, Ohio BCI and Miamisburg Police searched a property along Lower Miamisburg Road. During that search, investigators using canines and a backhoe to look for evidence.

On Tuesday, Chief Sedlak said investigators received new information that Coe may have been in the area of Sugarcreek MetroPark just before she was reported missing. The search, which will close the park from 6 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. each day, is expected to take three days due to the size of the park. Sedlak said investigators are doing "due diligence to continue the search."

"We hope that she's alive and well and that she some somehow contacts us and let us know that, but until such time we'll continue searching for her," he said.

Chief Sedlak said in addition to help from the FBI, Ohio BCI and cadaver dog teams are assisting with the search.
