Police say there is a person of interest in the case of a missing Indiana woman who has connections to the Tri-State area.
Marina Boelter, 18, was last seen getting into what authorities describe as a four-door Mercury Milan near an IGA parking lot in Bloomfield, Ind. Officials say the driver of that vehicle, who has not been identified, is a person of interest in the case.
Boelter lived with her father, John Boelter, in Hamilton, Ohio until her eighth grade year when she moved to Bloomfield, according to officials.
John has been traveling between Hamilton and Bloomfield to assist Indiana State Police in the search.
“We'd like the surrounding communities to please help us in the search for Marina. Anybody with property out in the country, if you could walk the property. Look anywhere, in abandon buildings,” said John.
Boelter, who has one child, is described as five-foot-three and 110 pounds with blonde hair and blue eyes.
The person of interest is a white male, aged 40 to 50 with a heavy-set build, officials say.
“The vehicle's color has been reported as everything from silver to beige, even gold in color. The Mercury has multi-spoke rims, a spoiler and a blue tooth or cellular shark fin antenna on top,” read a release from Indiana State Police.
A vigil will be held in Hamilton Saturday at 6 p.m. in the Hayes Elementary parking lot.
Greene County Crime Stoppers are offering a reward for information regarding Marina's whereabouts. They ask anyone with information on the case to call Greene County's Sheriff's Department at 812-384-4411 or Greene County Crime Stoppers at 812-847-5463.
