McKay says her daughter's boyfriend and one of his friends saw Casey and picked her up. At some point, Casey wanted to get out of the car. "She asked to get out of the car, asked for them to stop the car. The car stopped, she got out. She took off running across all four lanes of 73 and from there she disappeared."

The men looked for Casey and called 9-1-1. As family searched the area ... police and divers focused on a retention pond next to State Route 73. "They found her boots in the water and they say the cadaver dogs are hitting on the water but the sonar's not finding anything."

Friends and family of Casey gathered near the pond - waiting for answers. "It's just terrible. My daughter's out there and we need her home. We need closure."

The retention pond is 40 feet deep. Police say they have no reason to doubt the story of the two men Casey was with yesterday morning. They say the men are cooperating.

Casey Pitzer has two sons - ages 14 and 11.

WILMINGTON, OH (FOX19) -
Police are resuming the search for a missing Sabina, Ohio woman on Wednesday.

Casey Pitzer, 32, disappeared early Sunday morning, March 17.

SONAR got a hit on a human hair on Tuesday, so her family presumed her body had been found and that she was dead.

However, Wilmington Police say her body has not yet been found, and they are resuming the search on Wednesday.

According to Chief Detective Josh Riley of the Wilmington Police Department, Pitzer left a bar on the east side of Wilmington on foot around 12:30 a.m. Sunday morning walking eastbound on US 22&3. She got into a car which headed south on SR 73.

Shortly after entering SR 73, Pitzer wished to exit the car and the car pulled over to the side of the highway. Pitzer exited the car and ran east across four lanes of traffic and was last seen running toward an area where there is a retention pond that was created when the highway was built.

Air search teams were called in along with K9 units to aid in the search. On Tuesday, a dive team used SONAR equipment to search the pond in the area where she was last seen.

Family members, including her sister Kelly Taylor, believe there was no foul play involved.

"Devastating. I feel like I'm in a movie," said Taylor.

"She was a loving beautiful daughter, a very good mother, a very good daughter and we miss you," said her father, Gregory Pitzer.

Family members said they're thankful for all the support from local organizations, friends, and family.

"A little town Port William where she grew up, that town must be empty because everyone from that little community is here," revealed Pitzer.

Casey is a mother of two young boys. Her father said the older son had a birthday last week who she planned to take out for dinner on Sunday.
