MADISON COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - It's been almost six months now since Brookelyn Farthing disappeared. After several searches in a few different near the house where she was last seen, there still haven't been any big breaks. Jessica Rose says it's affected everyone in the area.
"We've all sort of followed it day by day hoping for a wonderful outcome," she said.
She lives near today's search area. It's one state police have been to before, but it's been a while. They came back today hoping they'd see something different now that the leaves have fallen. They also wanted to wait until after deer season ended hoping a hunter might come across something of interest. Police finished their search early this afternoon with no indication they'd found anything.
Rose said Big Hill is a very tight-knit community. She says that's why it's so surprising no one's come forward with information.
"You can turn around the wrong way and before you get home, somebody knows about it in Big Hill. That's why I think everybody's having such a hard time with this because nobody's saying anything," Rose said.
The family's already gone through Thansgiving without Brookelyn. Rose hopes maybe they can have her back for Christmas.
"I have hopes that I can wake up one morning and turn on the news and it says that she just come strolling down the road. That's the hopes that we all have," she said.
The search area was about a mile and a half from the house where Farthing was last seen.
