FRUITLAND, MO (KFVS) -

Investigators Friday completed their two day search for items related to Jacque Waller in an area along Interstate 55 near the Fruitland exit.

Searchers were out again Friday morning with search dogs, metal detectors, rakes and shovels to look for more clues in the disappearance of Jacque Waller.

"Anything we find in this case is significant," said Lt. Rodney Barnes with the Jackson Police Department.

Authorities are not saying publicly what they found, but say the items recovered were some of Jacque Waller's personal belongings. 

At least one officer was standing guard at the scene late Thursday.  Much of the area was lit up overnight and a portion of one lane of I-55 was closed to traffic.

Crews searched not far from the location where Jacque Waller's abandoned SUV was found with a flat tire in June.

According to Lt. David James with the Cape Girardeau County Sheriff's Dept., investigators were able to find items associated with the Waller case in a ditch that had recently been bush hogged. 

Investigators said they could not get to the area before because it had been covered in six to eight feet of briars.

James said they did not expect to find the body of Jacque Waller in that location.

Volunteer search crews will be out in force on Saturday in Cape Girardeau County looking for the missing mother of three.

"We're going to search every inch of ground in this county until we found her," said Bob Sherrill-Friend of Waller.

Crews plan to search at least 120 acres.


Jacque Waller disappeared June 1.  Prosecutors consider her husband Clay Waller a suspect in her disappearance .

He remains in jail on charges unrelated to his wife's disappearance.
