LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) – Cadaver dogs were brought out Tuesday to help search for a missing Lincoln County woman.

April Neikirk has been missing since April 25 from the Highland/Waynesburg area. Tuesday morning, search crews arrived with four cadaver dogs. Although they can’t say for certain, emergency leaders believe a murder may have happened.

A drone had been sent up previously to take photos of the landscape before the dogs were sent out. 

The search came to an end around 10 a.m.  The dogs did not find anything and will move to different locations in the following days.

If you know anything about April Neikirk’s whereabouts, you are asked to contact police.
