MERCER COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — After the search was called off Wednesday due to inclement weather, crews will be back at Murphy's Landing to search for Melanie Flynn.

Flynn disappeared in 1977 and last week, police received a tip that Flynn may be buried in an underground septic tank at the old campground. Investigators say they received credible information from two sources claiming that she was buried in the area.

Flynn vanished in 1977 and her belongings were later found in the Camp Nelson area along the Kentucky River.

Many believe that her disappearance has to do with the key players in the Blue Grass Conspiracy, which was a mega drug ring operated by dirty Lexington police in the 1970s.

Lexington police have also issued a public plea for any photos of Murphy's Landing from the 1950s to 1970s. They hope those images will show the layout of the area at the time Flynn disappeared.

Photos can be emailed to . Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Lexington Police by calling (859) 258-3600.
