Charles Sizemore and his family have been looking for Tammy Sizemore ever since she was reported missing on April 28th.

On Friday afternoon Sizemore says he received a tip that his niece, Tammy, may be in a rural part of Clay County.

Sizemore says that tip brought him a pond in a rural part of the county where he noticed something odd sticking out of the middle of the pond.

He says it was a metal storage cabinet, roughly five feet tall, and sealed shut. He says he saw a long pole nearby and was able to bring the cabinet to shore.

When he opened the cabinet and found a woman inside, his heart dropped.

Sizemore says, "She was wrapped up in a plastic and had duct tape around it, we cut the tape and saw her leg and a foot."

He says he called police and waited for them to come. The Clay County Sheriff says they were on scene for roughly two hours and the case is now being handled by the Kentucky State Police.

Sizemore says if police determine this was a murder, then he'll be seeking justice.

"There was no call for that, not to do her that way," he says. "I just hope they can catch the one that done it to her."

The woman was taken to the medical examiner's office in Frankfort where police say an autopsy will be performed tomorrow.
