Pond Search Continues For Missing SW Ohio Woman


UPDATED: Saturday March 23, 2013 6:57 AM

The search continues for a southwestern Ohio mother of two who was last seen running toward a retention pond Sunday.

Wilmington police say bad weather over the last few days hampered their search of the pond for 32-year-old Casey Pitzer.

Better weather conditions on Friday allowed searchers to add a third pump in an attempt to drain the pond.

The search for Pitzer began early Sunday after she began walking alone toward her home in Sabina following a night with friends at a bar.

The Wilmington News Journal has reported that shortly after getting a ride with two men, Pitzer got out and ran across four lanes of traffic on Ohio 73.

Authorities have used dragging equipment, sonar and other means at the large retention pond near the highway.
