Police search rural Oregon farm for missing mom Susan Cox Powell

Authorities are searching for missing mom Susan Cox Powell at a rural farm near Salem, Oregon, FOX 13 News reports.

Police, with numerous cadaver dogs in tow, toured the rural property Tuesday, looking to see if they could pick up the scent of human remains. According to FOX 13 News, Susan Cox Powell’s father, Chuck Cox, had said that when he was tipped off about the heavily wooded area earlier this year, he notified West Valley Police.

Cox told FOX 13 News the farm “could be a place where they could have dumped Susan’s body.”

While police were careful not to disclose many details, West Valley Police Chief Mike Powell told FOX 13 News investigators were looking for any clues that might lead them to find Cox Powell’s body.

Powell said they had been working to follow up on all leads and would “conduct any additional investigation that may lead us to knowing and discovering where Susan is.”

Cox Powell disappeared on Dec. 6, 2009 from her West Valley City home and her husband, Josh Powell, was considered a person of interest in her case before his death. He killed himself and their two children in a house fire and explosion in February 2012.
