Florida detectives conducted a backyard dig Monday looking for a missing woman last seen more than two years ago, according to reports.
Deputies with shovels were seen in the backyard of a home in Winter Garden and the Orange County Sheriff's Office said hours after the search began that they were looking for Jerilyn Handley.
Handley was last seen in Ocoee, Fla., a few days after leaving her home in Apopka, Fla., on May 21, 2017.
A tip sparked the search, the sheriff’s office said in a tweet Monday evening.
Deputies were at the address for hours and when they left they told reporters they did not find anything, Fox 35 Orlando reported.
A shed was searched after being emptied of items, according to the station.
Detectives are concerned foul play may be involved in the disappearance, the station reported.
A man who identified himself as a neighbor told Fox 35 that that search was taking place at a house notorious for trouble.
“I only know about the property, just, you know, seeing the police there all the time and it doesn’t look like a real good place to stay or hang out,” the neighbor said. The station did not name him at his request.
Handley was wearing a tank top, blue jean shorts and work boots when she disappeared.
