    MO - Geneva Adams, 53, Herculaneum, 24 July 1976


    31 July 09

    Herculaneum detectives searched a 114-acre wooded property outside of Perryville, Mo., for the remains of a Festus woman who disappeared 33 years ago.

    Capt. Mark Tulgetske said four dogs were used in the search for Geneva Adams, a mother of 10 who was last seen July 25, 1976. He said that no remains or other evidence was found, but that police will likely search the property again.

    Adams was 53 at the time of her disappearance. Her family has long believed that she was murdered.

    New search


    10 Sept 09

    Local sheriff's officials and the FBI are searching for a southeast Missouri woman missing for 33 years in Perry County. Officials are searching 114 acre property beyond a closed road near the Mississippi River for the remains of Geneva Adams.

    The mother of 10 from Herculaneum was 53 when she was last seen July 25, 1976.

    She's still classified as a missing person, but her family insists she was killed.

    Herculaneum Police Chief Chris Pigg says cadaver dogs led them to an area where they are now digging. A cadaver dog hit on a scent about a month ago.

    Pigg says Adams was last seen in the company of a man named Jimmy Lee Mills who used to visit the property, but Pigg would not say if Mills is a person of interest.

    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Adams' youngest daughter last saw her after midnight in Artesian Lounge, a Jefferson County tavern, dancing with a man she had met earlier. According to the male, he and Adams continued to drink and dance at the Artesian Lounge until the bar closed, shortly after 01.00. Then they joined several other bar patrons and headed to a bar in East St. Louis. The man said that the group returned to the Artesian and separated, and that he dropped Adams off at a donut shop in nearby Crystal City about 04.00.
    Adams had endured two difficult marriages, and she reared 10 children largely on her own.
    Those who are familiar with the case talk about her as a murder victim. They say that Adams, who found happiness almost entirely in her children, wasn't the type to run off and abandon them.
    No one has ever been arrested in connection with the case. Authorities never found her body or any physical evidence that suggests foul play.
    Authorities have been unable to find a case file on Adams' disappearance. The investigative notes and files may have been destroyed in a fire in 1981 at the Crystal City police station.
