PERRY COUNTY, Ky (WYMT) - There are some new leads in a 46-year-old cold case in Perry County.
Juanita Ritchie's family has been searching for her ever since she went missing in 1966 in the Rowdy Community.
Now, information from an anonymous phone call could provide answers for the family.
"It was just a a short thing. There was a lady, and she said your sister is at the bottom of a well, and she told me where the well was," said Ritchie's brother Scott Oliver.
The well is in the same area where Ritchie was last seen.
The well has been pumped, but so far nothing has turned up.
Scott Oliver says of all the things he has heard through the years, this makes the most sense.
"Putting together the stories that we have been told, plus the fact of where she was last seen," said Oliver.
He says his family has never stopped searching for his sister, but it's been hard at times.
"Having hope that we were going to find her, or one day we were going to see her come through the door and having those not happen, it's very disheartening," said Oliver.
46 years later, he still has hope that he will one day know what happened to his sister even if the well does not hold the answer.
State police are investigating the new leads in the case.
If you have any information, you should call state police.
