Eastern Adams Regional Police (EARP) are still searching for an Oxford Township woman who was reported missing at 5 p.m. on Friday.
Susan L. Ketcham, of Shank Road, was last seen near her residence at 10 p.m. on Thursday sitting in her vehicle while talking on her cell phone.
“The circumstances surrounding Ketcham’s disappearance are suspicious,” according to a press release issued by EARP. “All of Ketcham’s personal belongings that she would never leave her residence without were left there. Approximately 15 minutes after she was seen in her vehicle, she was no longer inside even though the interior light was left on.”
Ketcham was missing but her purse and bankcards were found in her vehicle and her cell phone was located 14 hours later several hundred yards from the house along a small creek.
“She is still missing,” EARP Chief Robert Then said Monday afternoon. “We had the blood hounds and cadaver dogs out on Sunday around the residence and they did pick up a scent leading us to a wooded area but with the two feet of snow that fell it is just difficult to cover the large area. We are waiting for some of the snow to melt and hoping that the dogs can lead us to a more specific area.”
Then added that the department is continuing to follow up on any leads but “unfortunately did not have any that were promising as of Monday.”
“All known acquaintances of Ketcham are unaware of where she is or where she may have gone,” the press release continued. “She has not contacted any family or friends.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact EARP at 717-624-1614.
