2 months later, still no resolution in case of missing southeast Missouri woman


STE. GENEVIEVE, Missouri — It has been two months since a southeast Missouri woman was reported missing, and there is still no word about her whereabouts.

The Daily Journal newspaper in Park Hills ( ) reports that Lynn Messer was reported missing July 8. Her husband, Kerry Messer, is a lobbyist in Jefferson City. He woke up that morning to find his wife gone from their 250-acre farm in Ste. Genevieve County.

Kerry Messer says he isn't giving up and still hopes to find his wife. Search parties aren't as big as they once were, but he is still able to gather enough people for searches each weekend. Posters are up around Ste. Genevieve, and a Facebook page is dedicated to helping to find Lynn Messer.
