Crews wrap up second day of searching for missing teen

Posted: Updated:

BATAVIA, OH (FOX19) - For the second day in a row, search crews were at East Fork Lake State Park, looking for missing teenager Paige Johnson.

Crews wrapped up the search at about 2 p.m. Thursday without finding anything related to Paige's disappearance.

Johnson, 17, was last seen Sept. 23 in Covington with a man named Jacob Bumpass. Crews were searching the park because cell phone records traced Bumpass' cell phone to that area the night Paige disappeared. Bumpass is not charged in relation to Paige's disappearance, but is behind bars on a parole violation.

Police say the search at East Fork has been suspended indefinitely, but the investigation will continue. Police say they continue to get tips from the public on what may have happened to Paige. If the investigation leads them back to East Fork, they will search some more.

Crews and canine units searched the area around Williamsburg dock over the past two days, focusing on areas Paige would most likely be based on the timeline police have put together.

East Fork Lake State Park is one of Ohio's largest park and covers nearly 5,000 acres. East Fork Lake is 2,160 acres of water.
