Crews Search Private Property in Search for Alexis Murphy


Lovingston, VA - Alexis Murphy has now been missing for eight weeks, but officials aren't giving up hope, still conducting searches for the Nelson County teenager.

Sunday morning, crews from jurisdictions from all over the state held a search of some private property in the Nelson County area.

A group of 50 volunteers and more than 10 search and rescue dog teams met to continue looking for any clues to help solve the case of Murphy's disappearance.

Several locations were searched, some new, some they've already searched before.

Nelson County Lead Investigator Billy Mays says that no new tips or clues prompted the searches. Mays says they just want to be sure that all areas are covered and adds that there can never be enough leg-work in the search for Alexis.

"These are areas that showed some interest early on in the investigation and we decided to go back and revisit these areas to make sure we haven't missed anything or left something unturned," Mays said.

Search and rescue volunteers from all over the state have been assisting Nelson County officials since Alexis first went missing.

"[We will] continue looking for any clues or evidence that could help this case and to find Alexis," Mays said.

Alexis was last seen at a Lovingston gas station on August 3.

If you have any information in her disappearance, contact the Nelson County Sheriff's Office.
