Police search landfill for clues on missing womanSubmitted: 10/27/2013
Story By Associated Press


MENOMONEE FALLS - Police are hoping to find evidence in a Menomonee Falls landfill about the disappearance of a Milwaukee woman who has been missing for over two weeks.

Because the investigation is ongoing, the Milwaukee Police Department is releasing few details. Police found nothing in the landfill on Saturday, but Lt. Mark Stanmeyer says the search resumed Sunday.

Twenty-seven-year-old Kelly Dwyer's mother reported her missing Oct. 12 after she failed to show up for work. She hadn't been back to her apartment and hadn't been using her cellphone.

Dwyer's boyfriend has been arrested twice in recent days, once on drug charges and another for possession of child pornography. He has told police he and Dwyer snorted cocaine together Oct. 10, but he has denied involvement in her disappearance.
