Search in Oregon for Susan Cox Powell’s remains turns up nothing

A Utah police department’s search at an Oregon farm for Susan Cox Powell, a mother who’s been missing and suspected dead since 2009, has turned up nothing.

The West Valley City Police Department hasn’t said why its detectives started searching the large farm in Scotts Mills, about 20 miles northeast of Salem. But Powell’s father, Chuck Cox, told the Associated Press that police had been searching the area for two days because it has ties to the Powell family.

The area searched is so wide that the lawyer for Powell’s estate, Anne Bremner, said that volunteers and cadaver dogs were needed to assist.

The investigation of Powell’s disappearance has focused on her husband, Josh Powell, who killed himself and the couple’s two young children in February 2012, and on her father-in-law, Steven Powell.
