ELLERY – New York State Police conducted a follow-up search for missing woman Busti woman Corrie Anderson Friday morning at 5230 Slide Road in Ellery.
New York State Police Investigator Joseph Smith told WNYNewsNow that approximately five officers and three State Police K9s searched the property that Anderson once owned.
Now under new ownership, the lot is slated to undergo construction in the near future. Smith said that owners gave investigators another chance to comb the property before structural changes occur.
“Corrie had ownership of some of this property at the time of her disappearance,” said Smith. “We figured this is going to be the last shot we have before somebody starts tearing down structures and moving earth.”
Unfortunately, Smith said police did not find any new evidence following Friday’s search.
“We don’t really call it a ‘cold case’ we continue to work on cases like this and others,” explained Smith. “If you get a lead that comes up, or every couple months you are re-contacting somebody, with the changes in technology and media nowadays, 20 years later people are solving crimes and solving disappearances, we are not going to sit back and wait.”
Anderson first went missing in October 2008. Smith said anyone with information in the case should call New York State Police in Jamestown at 716-665-3114.
Smith was part of the original search for Anderson in 2008. He said he will keep fighting to find out what exactly happened to the missing mother.
