(VIRGINIA) Officials in Nelson County just announced they are planning a new search for missing teen Alexis Murphy.
Murphy went missing from her Nelson County home in August 2013, and Randy Taylor was convicted of her murder in May 2014. Her body has never been found.
This announcement comes just three days after human remains were found off of Old Lynchburg Road in Albemarle County, that could be those of missing UVa student Hannah Graham.
Detective Billy Mays of the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office released this statement following the announcement:
“Our goal has always been to bring Alexis home, and to bring closure to the family.”
Mays said they had certain areas planned for the new search, but he did not disclose where those areas are.
Anyone with information about Murphy’s disappearance is asked to call the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office at (434) 263-7050. (link)
