Search For Missing Winchester Man Continues


He went missing more than a year ago, but now officials are investigating the possibility that human remains found near a Kentucky lake could belong to a Clark County man.

Thomas Profitt hasn't been seen since May of 2006. Since then, there's been no sign of the Winchester man or his car.

But now, Winchester Police say there's reason to believe remains found this weekend near Taylorsville Lake in Spencer County, could be his.

When Winchester Police received word that a body had turned up in Spencer County, it sparked their interest.

But this news is all too familiar for Profitt's family. Everytime human remains turn up, Profitt's family gets anxious. They're looking for their loved one, but also looking for closure.

Detective Danny Thomas talked with the investigators who spent the day collecting the skeletal remains. He says this missing person's case and the murder case have similarities.

But one key information is still left hanging. Profitt has a missing index finger, and because of the condition the body was in, it will take a few days to make a positive identification.

The remains have been taken to the State Medical Examiner's office.
