Green Bay police are examining a cornfield in Shawano County, looking for evidence in a nine-year-old disappearance. Amber Wilde , a 19-year-old U-W Green Bay student, was four months pregnant when she went missing. Captain Karl Fleury says information that a detective developed led them to the field along Highway 29 east of Wittenberg, where investigators are using a backhoe and cadaver dogs in the search. They found nothing Monday at are back on the scene today.
Even after nine years, police are still looking for tips on the case: Fleury says they have always had detectives working on the Wilde case, hoping to provide closure for the Wilde family. Wilde disappeared September 23rd, 1998. Her car was later found in the parking lot of an Ashwaubenon sports bar, with her purse and cell phone locked in the trunk. Investigators searched the same cornfield back in 2001. It was used as a fill site during construction of Highway 29.
