Authorities searching for evidence involving a missing Miamisburg woman are asking for the person who knows what happened to her to call police anonymously.
Police searching a Greene County park for evidence about Chelsey Coe say it’s “unlikely” she’s still alive after disappearing last summer, “but we don’t know what happened to her,” said Miamisburg Sgt. Jeff Muncy.

Here’s what we know today:
1. Where are police searching?
Evidence involving Chelsey Coe perhaps being at Sugarcreek MetroPark at that time led federal, state and local law enforcement to close the 618-acre park and search it Tuesday and Wednesday, Muncy said.
2. What have they found?
“There’s nothing concrete that says she’s here,” he said Wednesday. “This is just one lead we’re investigating and we’re trying to do it thoroughly to find her.”
Muncy said information leads police to believe the park may have been one of the last places Coe was seen.
3. Who is responsible for the disappearance?
Police continue to have a person of interest in Coe’s disappearance, but investigators have not disclosed details about the person. If authorities find nothing today, the search at the park will end, the sergeant said.
4. Who is Chelsey Coe?
Chelsey Coe, who was 25 years old when she was reported missing last September, was reportedly staying with “an older gentleman” in the Miamisburg area prior to her disappearance, officials said. Coe’s mother, Shula Woodworth, who lives in Adams County, told us on the phone she filed a missing persons report in July after not hearing from her daughter since June. Coe has been described as 5-foot-7, 150 pounds with blue, blond hair with a “Love” tattoo on her hip and stars tattooed on her lower back.
5. Where else has been searched?
Efforts to find clues along Lower Miamisburg began about 8 a.m. May 1 and ended that day after about 14 hours. They resumed May 3 and the search last about 10 hours. Authorities used excavation equipment to dig up land at 551 and a 565, used ground-penetrating radar and canine units.
Anyone with tips should call Miamisburg police at 937-847-6617.
