A search and recovery team from the Louisville Metro Police Department is back at work Wednesday in Nelson County. 

Authorities won’t say what they are looking for, but Sherry Ballard suspects the search is for her daughter Crystal Rogers, who’s been missing for nearly a month.

"It's hard because we're praying that we find something just to know where she's at, and at the same time, we're praying we don't find nothing, because we know if we find something here, it's not going to be the outcome we're looking for," Ballard told WKU Public Radio.

The lake is not far from Rogers’ boyfriend’s family farm where she was last seen July 3.  Two days later, her car was found with a flat tire on the Bluegrass Parkway in Nelson County.
