A day after an aerial search for a missing Brownwood woman, local law enforcement officials had no new information to release Thursday.
Department of Public Safety spokesman Sparky Dean said a DPS helicopter from Lubbock had flown in the area Wednesday in the search for Michele Reiter, 38. Dean did not have details on the area or the length of the search.
Sheriff Bobby Grubbs said his office is assisting Brownwood police in the investigation. Grubbs declined further comment and referred questions to Brownwood police, who have released almost no details on the search for Reiter.
Reiter, a Home Depot employee, was last seen at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 10, according to friends and Facebook posts. She told her roommate she was going out for a while, and when she didn't come home that night, the roommate contacted Home Depot the next morning to see if she had come to work. Reiter hadn't, and her car was found two days later.
According to a flyer handed out at a candlelight vigil on Friday, Reiter was wearing a black-and-white top and jeans when she was last seen. She is 5-foot-5 and has a slim or slender build with brown shoulder-length hair.
A Facebook page called Help Find Michele Reiter has attracted numerous posts, and many of those postings have indicated they are passing out flyers about Reiter's disappearance.
