The search resumes for missing Chelsea Bruck

Chelsea Bruck was last seen at a Halloween party in Frenchtown Township. Just a few miles from where purple ribbons wrap the small town of Newport, volunteers, state police, border patrol and Monroe County Sheriff's Deputies all scoured the area near the Lake Eerie shoreline to try to find the missing 22-year-old.

"It's been in the works for awhile, just waiting for the weather to clear," said Chelsea's mom Leannda Bruck.

Chelsea Bruck was last seen not far from this area last October. She was wearing a "poison ivy" costume and went to a Halloween party. The search, covering five miles off of Jefferson Avenue and Sigler roads, lasted about five hours Thursday. But Chelsea's mother said the search didn't turn up any clues.

"It's hard but I'm also a very strong, very faithful person and no news is good news. I wish the good news would come very fast, but I'd rather have no news than bad news," said Leannda.

Chelsea's mom said now that it's getting warmer there will be more searches, adding that she mails out fliers across the country daily. She posts photos of Chelsea and the person of interest everywhere she can.

Leannda said,"It's an emotional roller coaster, but like I said, my faith is strong, it keeps me going, my dear Lord keeps me going, my family keeps me going."

Holding onto pictures of Chelsea, purple ribbons and hope, this mother said what also keeps her going is the thought that her daughter is out there and she is alive.

"If you don't stick to that thought and you're thinking negative that's the devil. The devil is not going to win on mom's watch," said Leannda.

Chelsea's mother said she wants to remind people that there is a reward through Crime Stoppers of more than $30,000. If you have any information on the disappearance of Chelsea Bruck, please call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-speak-up.
