WILMINGTON, Ohio - Wilmington police will continue their search Tuesday for a 32-year-old woman last seen early Sunday morning.
Police report Casey Pitzer was last seen leaving Uncle Louie's Bar and walking eastbound on U.S. 22 near State Route. 73 in Wilmington around 12:30 a.m. when she got into a car that headed south on SR 73.
Pitzer exited the vehicle a short time later and ran across four lanes of traffic toward an area with a retention pond, Wilmington police report after interviewing the driver of the car.
"She's a wonderful person," said Jennifer Warnock, Casey Pitzer's sister. "She would not do this. She would have contacted someone by now."
Since Sunday police have conducted a search in the area with K9 unites and an air search team. Authorities say they believe Pitzer may be in the pond, though a dive team has yet to locate her.
Pitzer's father, Greg, said his daughter planned to celebrate one of her two sons' birthday on Sunday. Greg Pitzer gathered with other family members near the pond where Casey Pitzer was last seen on Monday for a prayer circle asking for Casy's safe return to them.
Family continues to search for Casey Pitzer, as police brought out divers and K9 units for a second day of searching on Monday.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Wilmington Police Department at 937-382-3833 or anonymously at 937-382-TIPS (8477).

Obama is not claiming final victory over extremists who still seek to kill Americans and other Westerners. Instead, he is refocusing the long struggle against terrorism that lies ahead, steering the United States away from what he calls an equally frightening threat — a country in a state of perpetual war.
