Search Continues for Woman Missing at Otter Creek Park in Meade County

Jul 6, 2012

Searchers have resumed looking for a mother last seen July 4 in Otter Creek Park near Brandenburg. Kentucky State Police say 37-year-old Carrie Ruffra entered the park around 1 a.m. EDT Wednesday and the park director found her vehicle parked near a boat ramp leading to the Ohio River around 11:30 a.m. EDT that same day.

While Kentucky State Police said they do not believe Ruffra's disappearance is suspicious, family members said this is not like her.

Family member Michelle Ruffra Broderick told WAVE-TV in Louisville that disappearing without contacting her 10 and 4-year-old children is unlike Ruffra.

Crews began searching for Ruffra on Wednesday and took up the third day of searching Friday morning.
