Missing Person Cases have Some on High Alert

Volunteers were out again today searching for missing Kristy Kelley. Authorities say her case has more women worried.
The woman who only wanted to go by "Jane Doe" says she shops at Walmart on Bell Road several times a week. On Monday around 8:45 p.m. she says two men, one Hispanic and one white, driving a silver minivan, followed her in the parking lot asking her for money.

"I said I'm sorry I don't have any cash. He said 'come on you have cash just give me a little bit of cash. Please help us out.' I said I'm sorry I don't have any cash. And the third time he said 'come on I know you have cash just give me your money just give me cash.' And at that point I realized they weren't really backing down."

Jane says she started to feel threatened with the man's aggression. She walked towards the entrance and asked another woman to walked together through the parking lot and the men drove off.

"Something still kind of told me something seemed a little off because I've been asked for money before and they didn't just ask one time. They started getting pretty aggressive."

Jane says Walmart security showed her surveillance video of the night and she says she was the first of four women to be approached by the men.

"I would have never felt like I needed to be on the lookout for something like that."

Warrick County Sheriff Brett Kruse says since Kristy Kelley's disappearance the calls of women feeling harassed have been pouring in.

"We have had a dozen calls about those exact types of incidents since last Friday," said Sheriff Kruse.

Sheriff Kruse says he encourages women to stay aware of their surroundings, especially at night.

"People are on high alert and that's great. They need to be on high alert, but not just because of this. They need to be on high alert all the time," said Sheriff Kruse.

At this time no arrests have been made in this case.
