    A search resumed Wednesday for a Pennsylvania woman last seen in Hancock County.


    Karen Adams, 54, of Independence Township, Pa., was last seen in Chester in March.


    Pennsylvania State Police and the Hancock County Sheriff's Department scoured areas from Chester to Weirton by ground and by helicopter Wednesday.


    Hancock County Sheriff Mike White said crews wanted to wait until the leaves were off the trees so they could do an aerial search to determine if Adams' vehicle went over an embankment.


    A cell phone call made the night Adams went missing was picked up by a tower in the southern part of Steubenville, leading police to believe Adams will be found in the areas they are searching.

    Think she won big?
    or someone saw her gambling with a lot of money and assumed they'd be able to rob her for a good bit of $$?

    My father has been walked out by security when he won big at a track here. They even have a special collection window, so all someone has to do is watch the window and know who won big that night and follow them out...

    A family friend was robbed recently after a night of poker. Someone saw her turn in a bunch of trays and assumed she was cashing them all in (she was leaving them for credit for the next time). They followed her home and robbed her, but only got about $20.

    KAREN S. ADAMS
    http://www.fbi.gov/wanted/kidnap/adams_ks.htm

    Karen S. Adams was last seen at a popular gambling location in Hancock County, West Virginia. On the evening of March 11, 2007, Adams drove her red/maroon, four-door, 2005 Suzuki Forenza sedan with Pennsylvania license plate ETD5587 just across the Pennsylvania state line to the Mountaineer Casino Racetrack and Resort to play bingo. She was seen there and was known to have left the bingo area around 11 p.m. that evening, possibly headed to the gaming side of the resort to play the slot machines. She was observed on surveillance video at approximately 3 a.m. on the morning of March 12, 2007, leaving the gambling complex and she has not been seen nor heard from since that time. Her car has also not been located.

    Bolded respectfully by me.

    I know this thread isn't for discussion but rather support and info.

    I did pull up a map of the route that Karen probably travelled that night.

    The river really needs to be looked at. Have they done the ariel searches yet?

    Come home soon Karen. Just by looking at the map I can tell that, more than likely, you are just waiting for someone to come get you sweetheart.

    Prayers for your family Karen.

    LE performed an air-and-ground search for her car in December 2007, centering on the New Manchester, WV area: http://kdka.com/local/Missing.Beaver....2.609601.html

    I'm seconding your prayers that God will guide the searchers to her car if it is in one of these areas.

    Sonar Technology Will Be Used to Find Missing Woman

    Beaver County District Attorney Anthony Berosh said cars don't just vanish, and Wednesday, they'll be searching the waterways in the area.

    “People sometimes associate a cold case with a closed case. To show you that it isn't closed, we have access to a new sonar technology that we'll employ over significant bodies of water approximately in the last area where we believe she was in. So hopefully, we'll be able to explore those possibilities that the car, for example, is in a river or a large lake,” said Berosh.

    Adams' family is also very hopeful that answers will be found.
    Please let Karen's family find the answers they have been looking for for the past 3 years.

    According to this article, the sonar has proved the car is not in any of the five ponds along her route home: http://www.timesonline.com/bct_news/...ing-woman.html

    Authorities Find Vehicle in Ohio River


    Brooke County authorities are at the Stuebenville Marina working to pull a car from the bottom of the Ohio River.

    Just this week, Pennsylvania authorities were searching ponds and the river looking for Karen Adams, 55, of Industry, Pa., who disappeared three years ago from Mountaineer Racetrack and Casino.

    Authorities have stated that the last phone call made from Adams’ cell phone hit a cell phone tower in Steubenville, which can be seen from the marina.

    I don't understand why it took them 3 years to check the river, it's so sad it took so long.
