    OH - Santana Ivey, 21, Zanesville, 1 July 2007

    Woman frantic over daughter missing since July 1
    Family plans to organize search party
    By KATHY THOMPSON
    Staff Writer
    ZANESVILLE - Mary "Dody" Samson spends her nights dreaming about her missing 21-year-old daughter, Santana and praying she comes home or is found alive.

    Santana Ivey has been missing since July 1, when Samson last heard from her.

    "She called me to say she needed to talk to me and was coming home July 4," Samson said, her hands shaking as she holds a picture of Santana as a bright eyed teenager wearing a Mickey Mouse shirt. "I haven't heard from her since."

    Samson and her son, Phillip Ivey Jr., are planning on putting together family members and friends who can search the area for her.

    "It's not what I want to believe, but I believe something bad has happened to her," Phillip Ivey said. "I've combed the streets talking to people who know her and no one has seen her. It's just not right. She'd have called if she was OK. I believe in my heart she's been hurt or worse, killed. We need some closure to this and we'll do whatever we have to get it."

    Zanesville Police Detective Ric Roush said his department is continuing to search for Ivey, but have had no luck so far.

    "We've put her into the national missing person data base so that if she should come into contact with a police officer anywhere in the country for any reason, it will come back that she has been reported missing from this area and they'll contact us," Roush said. "The same goes for the worst case - if a body is recovered and the description matches Santana's. They'll notify us for that, too."

    Samson said when her daughter failed to contact her on Samson's birthday - Sept. 6 - she nearly fell apart.

    "I stayed home all day long because no matter where she's ever been before, she's called me on my birthday," Samson said. "If she was okay, she'd have called. My sister, Polly, had a birthday Sept. 2 and she always called her aunt on that day. We just know she's hurt or something. I just want her home."

    Samson last saw her daughter after Ivey was released from the Zanesville City Jail May 2, where she had served 127 days for three counts of prostitution.

    Ivey went to Samson's house and spent about two weeks there until she and her mother got into a quarrel. Ivey then left, taking all her clothes and other items with her, but Samson has no idea where she had been staying before her disappearance.

    "We've heard rumors that she's dead and lying in some woods or been thrown into the river," Phillip Ivey said. "We want to know the truth. My sister wasn't always like the way she's been in the past three years. Drugs will do that to a person. She used to be so sweet and innocent. She had a real sparkle to her."

    What the family doesn't want to hear is that Santana has been found under the same bridge that two other Zanesville women have been discovered.

    Angela Kennedy, 40, and Stephanie Gallis, 35, were both found under a bridge on Perine Road. Kennedy was discovered in April 2002. Her case is open and her death has been ruled a homicide by the Muskingum County Sheriff's Office.

    Gallis was discovered last December and died as a result of acute cocaine drug effects, according to autopsy reports.

    While Ivey spent the time with her family just before she disappeared, Samson said her daughter talked about turning her life around.

    "She didn't even want to leave the house by herself," Samson said. "She wanted me to go with her to the store. She was doing OK for a couple of weeks and then started getting fidgety. I just want to know where she is and that she's okay."

    Ivey is described as being five foot four inches tall, weighing 120 pounds, has brown hair and brown eyes. Ivey also has several tattoos - a cross on her left wrist, a mushroom on her left leg near her ankle, a black rose on her right wrist, a butterfly on the back of her neck and a yellow sun on her back. She also has three moles on her face - one on her lip, one on the left side of her face and one on her forehead.

    "We're a close family," Phillip Ivey said. "All we have is each other. We'll do whatever it takes to get her back. She's really a good girl and we love her."

    Evidence was found during a search Monday that has officials feeling suspicious about a missing 21-year-old Zanesville woman.

    According to Zanesville Police Department Det. Sgt. Ric Roush, volunteers found a suitcase that belonged to Ivey, which contained her clothing and letters written to her, in an abandoned house in the area.

    "What's kind of bad about this is there are some things that are being found now that are very suspicious," he said.

    Perry County is a little east of Columbus. I'm racking my brain trying to remember any missing people around there!

    ETA: Also it's between Columbus and the borders of PA, WV and KY. So the body might be from those places as well.

    Looking at "Township Road 63" on google earth doesn't reveal any major highways around there. It looks like you would have to know where you were going to drive around that area. This is probably a local job. I wonder how old the bones are and if they dug around the area for more?

    The first two that come to mind are Brian Shaffer and Tony Luzio. I want to say that Tony Luzio is less probable because he disappeared with his car, which has also not been found.

    I'm sure there are plenty more people it could be, but definitely the first person that came to mind for me was Brian Shaffer.

    It seems they found a black bag with an AK47, a hammer, knife, duct tape and ties and black clothing items while searching. This certainly sounds like a killers little bag of goodies. The garbage bag was hidden in the brush.
