On 6 month anniversary of mom's disappearance, crews plan new search

CAPE GIRARDEAU COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

On the six-month anniversary of a southeast Missouri mom's disappearance, authorities make plans to head back out in force to search for evidence in her case.

Jacque Waller, a 39-year-old mother of three, went missing on June 1.

Authorities say she was last seen by her estranged husband Clay Waller at the Jackson home where he was staying at the time.

The Scott County Search and Rescue Team will lead the effort Saturday morning, combing through areas recommended by authorities heading up the investigation.

Lieutenant David James with the Cape County Sheriff's Office says a case like Waller's takes time to unravel, but "time is on our side at this point."

Volunteers are welcome to join search crews meeting at 8 a.m. Saturday, December 3 at the Rhodes Service Station in Fruitland.

For more information, contact Bob Sherrill at 573-979-0600.

Officers searching along I-55 near the Fruitland exit in early November turned up some of Waller's personal items.

In the meantime, Jackson Police Chief James Humphreys tells they are working two angles in the Waller case.

He says they're still searching for Waller, but also gathering evidence as they build a case against the person responsible for her disappearance.

As we've reported, prosecutors call her estranged husband Clay Waller a suspect.

Mr. Waller remains in federal custody, and faces sentencing December 19, after pleading guilty to making a threat over the Internet.
