The FBI has released new surveillance images showing several vehicles located at points of interest in the ongoing investigation of missing Kentucky woman, Crystal Rogers.
FBI spokesperson Timothy Beam told the Lexington Herald-Leader that the agency needs help identifying the drivers of the vehicles seen in the two photos. Beam said these drivers may have information about Rogers’ 2015 disappearance in Nelson County.
Rogers was reported missing by her mother on July 3, 2015. Two days later, her car was found abandoned with a flat tire on the Bluegrass Parkway. Her keys, phone, and purse were inside the vehicle.
The first image apparently shows a white SUV and a red SUV driving near the My Old Kentucky Home campground in Bardstown. The second photo, taken at 3:45 a.m. on July 4, 2015, shows an unidentified vehicle on Balltown Road, located near the Paschal Ballard Road intersection.
The FBI took over the investigation following news that human remains were found on the Washington-Nelson County line on July 23. Authorities have not yet confirmed whether the human remains belong to Rogers.
Rogers’ ex-boyfriend, Brooks Houck, was reportedly the last person to see her alive. A year after Rogers’ disappearance, her ex-boyfriend’s brother, Nick Houck, was fired from the Bardstown Police Department for allegedly interfering with the investigation.
Last week, the agency executed search warrants at Brooks Houck’s home, in addition to Nick Houck’s residence and their family farm. All three locations are located in Bardstown.
Reports indicated that the remains discovered late last month were located four miles from the Houcks family farm — where authorities believe the missing mother-of-five was last seen alive.
A $25,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to Crystal Rogers’ discovery.
