WHITLEY COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– Authorities say a Whitley County man is in jail after he confessed to killing a woman who was reported missing almost seven months ago.

Laura Anderson was reported missing by her mother in February.

Williamsburg police say initially foul play was not suspected, but in March they received new information.

We’re told James Bauer, who police say knew Anderson, confessed to the murder.

Anderson’s body has not been found, but police are still looking.

They believe at least two more people are involved.
