Search For Joyce Crider Continues In Floyd Co.

For years, her disappearance has puzzled police. On Wednesday, there was another possible break in the case of a missing Lexington woman.

Joyce Crider has been missing for six years. She disappeared in October of 2002. She told family members she was on her way to see her now ex-husband, and never came back.

Lexington police have searched for her body ever since, but now the FBI is getting in on the search.

Lexington Police, FBI agents and the state medical examiner spent the day on Wednesday, digging for the first time at a location west of Prestonsburg in Floyd County.

They used cadaver dogs, earth moving equipment, shovels and a septic pump to search for clues.

The property is owned by Bill Crider, Jr. He's considered to be a person of interest in the case.

Officials say they had enough on him to get a warrant to search his property and a truck that he was driving at the time of his ex-wife's disappearance.

27 NEWSFIRST contacted Bill Crider. He says he did not know about the search warrant and had no comment.

Crews returned to the scene in Floyd County on Thursday.

Joyce Crider's family is offering a $20,000 reward for information that leads to her whereabouts.
