FAIRFIELD, Ohio - More than a dozen volunteers spent another weekend afternoon searching for missing a Fairfield woman.

On Sunday, searchers focused on a wooded area at the dead end of Lick Road off West Kemper Road in Hamilton County.

It borders Fairfield and is several miles from 22-year-old Katelyn Markham's townhome. She was reported missing two weeks ago and her family has not heard from her since.

Danny Alan of Fairfield does not know Markham but he and other volunteers felt compelled to help search. He said focus area off Lick Road is a popular hang out spot for young people because it has a reputation for being haunted.

"It's an area that's popular with kids. It's desolate. It's really close to Fairfield and not far from Katelyn's home if you were coming in from River Road, it's not far," said Alan.

Volunteers plan to keep searching until dark. There is a $5,000 reward for information on Markham's whereabouts.
