Investigators are back out, searching for a woman who's been missing for nearly two months.

The Menifee County Sheriff tells 27 NEWSFIRST crews are searching the Red River Gorge on foot after receiving a tip from someone who spotted something on a bike ride.

Nicole Penix Vanzant was last seen on January 19th, outside the Dollar General in Frenchburg. Witnesses say she was arguing with a man before her disappearance.

Vanzant's father, Rick Penix, conducted his own search today. He searched at saw mills in the Rowan County area after receiving a tip of his own.

There is a $6,500 reward for information as to where Vanzant may be.
