Temperatures in the mid-20s and the threat of rain and snow didn't stop hundreds of volunteers from heading out to search for a missing Jackson County woman Tuesday morning.
27-year-old Alisha Sidie, a mother of two, was last seen on Friday night at 9 p.m. That's when her husband says the two got in an argument and she left their Hatfield home.
Volunteers searched the rugged terrain near the Black River Monday and were back at it again Tuesday. Gary Nordin with the Hatfield Fire Department says they're using dogs to try and track her and a boat is being brought in to check a nearby river. A dive team was also in a canal Monday, but did not find anything.
Sheriff Duane Waldera says the search has been fruitless so far, despite covering a great deal of area. Waldera says they have not ruled out foul play, but have no information that suggests something sinister happened to Sidie.
He says there a couple phases to the investigation. There's the very public search, but detectives are also looking elsewhere for information and working to track down any leads they may have.
Sidie is 5'5″ and around 135 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. Friends say she was last seen wearing light blue scrubs and a long-sleeved white t-shirt. Anyone with information should call the Jackson County Sheriff's Department at 715-284-5357.
