LOVE COUNTY, OK -- Private investigators say they may have uncovered new evidence in the Molly Miller case.
"Over the past 6 days our investigative team has been up in Oklahoma and has uncovered evidence regarding the Molly Miller case. That evidence was turned over to federal agencies. And so from there, they did what they needed to do," said Caroline Gear with Klein investigators.
She says a search, conducted by federal agents, took place yesterday in Love County in connection with the disappearance of Molly Miller and Colt Haynes, Carter County residents who have been missing since last July.
"Yesterday there was a multi-agency law enforcement operation that took place. It was in reference to long-term criminal activity in northern Love County," said Lieutenant Jay Clary.
OHP confirmed that they were involved in the operation that took place on Long Hollow Road.
They would not say whether it was related to the missing persons case.
This is the road where the search took place Wednesday. The same area where troopers say a high speed chase took place last July.
Troopers say James Conn Nipp was the driver who led police on the pursuit, with Molly Miller and Colt Haynes in the car.
Miller and Haynes have not been seen or heard from since.
Nipp was arrested and charged with endangering others while attempting to elude police. He pleaded not guilty in April.
"We're still working on the case. We still have a lot of ground left to cover. So yes, we are still working on it," said Gear.
OHP would not comment on the results of the operation,
but the private investigative team had this to say in regards to their search for miller:
"Whenever the time is right, he will make a statement regarding the events of the past 6 days," said Gear.
