Lincoln County Sheriff's officers hope missing person Anita Bucki is alive, but they still haven't found her after a search of her home and the surrounding area.
"We want to make sure that we preserve any information or evidence if it should become that sometime," said Lincoln Co. Chief Deputy Nathan Walrath at a press conference Wednesday afternoon.
The search appeared to be wrapped up for the day Wednesday evening. According to a Newsline 9 reporter on scene, one officer was on duty guarding the area just before 10:00 p.m. The officer said he didn't know if another search was planned for Thursday.
Bucki, 48, was reported missing by her husband last Friday, according to the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office.
"Efforts are obviously to locate her," said Lincoln Co. Chief Deputy Nathan Walrath earlier Wednesday. "We hope to find her well."
On Tuesday night officers began searching Bucki's house in the Town of Corning. They said they are looking there to learn more about the missing 48-year-old.
"The process of going through the home is to gain information about the individual," said Walrath. He wouldn't comment about what officers have found, but he did say their search is almost finished.
Officers also searched the area near Bucki's home that she shared with her husband.
"We haven't had any luck with any K-9 searches that would indicate she would be in the wooded area," said Walrath. He said officers also searched nearby ponds without success.
"We wanted to rule out the possibility that she would be in those areas," he said.
Walrath added that there are no suspects in this time, and officers don't believe foul play was involved, "but until we know for certain, we treat every missing person case seriously," he said.
The State Crime Lab has assisted in the investigation, along with the Department of Justice.
Anita Bucki's family has expressed frustration with the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office for not updating them regularly on the details of their investigation. Newsline 9 asked Walrath to comment on this, but he refused.
Walrath said Bucki's husband is not a suspect in this case.
If you have any information about Anita Bucki, call the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office.
