Search follows tip miles away for Kentucky mom, missing for a month

A tip moved investigators miles away this week from where Andrea Knabel was last seen, but the month-long search has yet to turn up any sign of the 37-year-old Louisville, Kentucky, mom, WDRB reported.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Knabel disappeared in the early morning hours of August 13 in the Audubon Park area of Louisville. Searches on Wednesday centered on Iroquois Park, about eight miles away across Louisville International Airport from Audubon.

Knabel left a residence at about 1 a.m. that morning and made a call inquiring about a ride about a half an hour later, investigators told the Louisville Courier-Journal, but calls to her cell phone now immediately go to voice mail.

Knabel volunteers for Missing in America, a national organization that helps search for missing adults and children, and other members of that group are helping in the search.
