As officials continue to search a park in Greene County for evidence in the disappearance of a Miamisburg woman last summer, Middletown police say cases remain open for four missing women who shared similar lifestyles.
All four of those women have a shared history of prostitution, Reeve told the Journal-News.
“It is really difficult to find these ladies or even information on them because in some cases that don’t have permanent addresses and move around. And (they have) a history of prostitution that makes them vulnerable,” Reeve said.
A run-in with law enforcement may be the first police hear about the women, he said.
The Middletown Police Department enlisted the help of the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation for leads on the women’s whereabouts.
Information from BCI led detectives to Florida and Kentucky a few months ago on leads of English’s whereabouts, but officials did not find her.
Detectives say it is possible English’s disappearance is related to the death of Lindsay Bogan, who went missing from Middletown two years ago and whose skeletal remains were found in July 2016 on a Madison Twp. farm. Her death remains unsolved.
English made it known to others she was helping police in their investigation of Bogan’s then-disappearance, police told the Journal-News in 2016. There have been no sightings of English since May 2016.
“We hear theories and rumors all the time … We don’t get any first-hand information and that is what we need,” Reeve said.
