MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office is now reviewing the case of drug charges against a 38-year-old man police say were brought to light during the investigation of missing woman Kelly Dwyer.
Milwaukee police have confirmed they have a man in custody for drugs they discovered during the course of the Dwyer investigation. Meanwhile, friends and family continue to search for 27-year-old Dwyer who has been missing since Friday, October 11th.
Volunteers canvassed Milwaukee’s east side on Friday, October 18th, posting and handing out fliers with photos of Dwyer. Family members say the woman was last seen with her boyfriend at a restaurant near Prospect and Lafayette on Thursday night, October 10th.
“Until we have Kelly home or know where she is, the search doesn’t end,” said volunteer Christ Schwartz.
An unconfirmed report says Milwaukee Police may search for the woman at an area landfill, however when asked about this a police spokesman said, “there’s been no determination as to a search of any landfill.”
According to a family member, police are looking at surveillance video from an apartment building on Lafayette and Prospect however authorities did not confirm that.
“I hope that they find Kelly and she is fine. Maybe she took a break from everything. I’m just praying and hoping, for the family’s sake, that Kelly is found safe,” said Schwartz.
The DA’s Office says the man in custody for drugs will be charged this afternoon.
