JACKSON, MO (KFVS) -

Police say the husband of a missing Ste. Genevieve woman is a person of interest in her disappearance.

Jacque Waller's estranged husband, Clay Waller, is a person of interest in her disappearance, according to Lt. David James with the Cape Girardeau Co. Sheriff's Office and Cape Girardeau/Bollinger County Major Case Squad.

James says Clay Waller is not a suspect, because there is no evidence that a crime has been committed.  However, authorities do suspect foul play in her disappearance.

Investigators say Clay Waller is the last person to see Jacque before she went missing.

Authorities are seeking the public's help in tracking the Waller's whereabouts after 4 p.m. on Wednesday June 1.

If anyone saw either of them and/or their vehicles, they are asked to contact Jackson Police Department.

James says her immediate family is cooperating in the investigation.

According to the Cape Girardeau/Bollinger County Major Case Squad, they have followed up on many leads since Wednesday and conducted "numerous interviews of individuals."

Investigators say through the process "evidence has been located and a person of interest has been developed regarding the disappearance where foul play is expected."

According to Lt. Rodney Barnes with the Jackson Police Department, they would like to know if anyone may have seen Ms. Waller's blue 2006 Honda Pilot bearing Mo. plates HA5D5J being driven after 4 p.m. June 1 and who may have been in the SUV.

Also, police would like information on a red 2009 GMC Sierra pickup truck with 4 doors during this same time frame. The truck may have been pulling an aluminum V bottom boat with an 8-horse Johnson motor on a black trailer, said Barnes.

Police say all the vehicles have been located but the public's information concerning their location after the disappearance of Ms. Waller is requested.

On Thursday the Cape Girardeau-Bollinger Co. Major Case Squad was activated.

Jacque Sue Waller was last seen in the area of Woodland Dr. and N. Neal Street.

Police describe Waller as 5'2" tall and 135 lbs. She has blonde hair, blue eyes and is 39-years-old.

Waller's car was found on I-55 at approximately the 105 mile marker abandoned, according to police.

Saturday, family and friends had a prayer vigil for Jacque Waller.

"It means so much to know she has so many friends who love her and care for her," said Cheryl Brenneke, Jacque Waller's sister. "Keep praying for us."

Brenneke attended a prayer vigil Saturday with dozens of her sister's friends in Cape Girardeau.

In March, the former Cape Girardeau County resident moved to Ste. Genevieve to live with her sister.

"She was supposed to be returning to Ste. Genevieve (Wednesday), but she never showed up," said Lt. Rodney Barnes with the Jackson Police Department.

The Major Case Squad was trying to find a 14-foot V-bottom boat and trailer related to the incident. That boat has been found.

Police say Waller's estranged husband's truck, and the boat are at the Cape Girardeau County Sheriff's Department. Both the truck and the boat are being thoroughly examined, according to investigators.

Dive teams with the Missouri State Highway Patrol searched two ponds off of Woodland Dr. in Jackson on Friday afternoon. According to police, Waller's estranged husband lived somewhere on the property. Jacque Waller was last seen near that area on Wednesday, June 1.

Family and friends gathered off Siemers Drive in Cape Girardeau Saturday afternoon to pray for Mrs. Waller.

Her family members say their loved one "would not just up and leave her kids."

They are very concerned about her well being.

"We miss her so badly already," said Cheryl Brenneke.

In addition to prayers they also released balloons Saturday in honor of Jacque.

Police say if you have any information on Waller or about the SUV, truck or boat to call the Jackson Police Department at 573-243-3151.
