Authorities conducted checkpoints north and south of Lynn Messer's family farm on Route DD early Tuesday morning to try to learn information about her disappearance.
The 52-year-old Ste. Genevieve County woman was last seen July 8.
According to a press release issued Wednesday, the Ste. Genevieve County Sheriff’s Office conducted two check points between midnight and 8 a.m. Tuesday to ask motorists for any observation that they may have seen the week prior during the same time. Several observations are being followed up on.
Following a massive effort of professional searchers last week, the Messer family has enlisted volunteers who continue to conduct further searches of the property and surrounding areas.
These volunteer searchers are made up of individuals from Ste. Genevieve and Jefferson Counties. Besides family and friends of the Messer family, individuals from other states have joined the search as well. The volunteer effort to locate Lynn Marie Messer has been led by Kerry Messer (Lynn’s husband). For more information regarding the volunteer searches being organized, see the designated Face Book account labeled “Find Lynn Messer.”
The Ste. Genevieve County Sheriff’s Office has enlisted the assistance of the Missouri State Highway Patrol to help in the ongoing investigation into Messer’s disappearance.
The press release stated, "Information in regards to this ongoing investigation cannot be released at this time. All possible reasons or occurrences leading to Lynn Marie Messer’s disappearance will be investigated."
A press conference for media was scheduled for 10 a.m. today.
Ste. Genevieve County Sheriff’s Office has set up a tip line to receive any information from the public that may be useful to finding Lynn. The tip line number is 573-883-5820 ext: 27463.
