By  | 

LOVE COUNTY, OK -- Investigators say they're looking into new leads in the case of two Carter County residents who've been missing for over a year.

Federal and State Agents canvassed Long Hollow Road Wednesday as part of their investigation into the disappearance of Molly Miller and Colt Haynes.

Steve Tanner, an agent with OSBI said, "the lead that we are following was initiated by other law enforcement officers that are also looking for the missing people."

District Attorney Craig Ladd on Wednesday, requested OSBI open a full investigation into the disappearance and possible homicides of Miller and Haynes.

The US Marshals, Oklahoma Highway Patrol, the FBI and several other agencies are combing private property at the end of the road.

Philip Klein, a private investigator hired by Miller's family, announced he and his team have identified three persons of interest: Colby Barrick, Jennifer Nipp, and Conn Nipp who is in custody of the Department of Corrections in Oklahoma.

OSBI says they do not have any persons of interest at this time but the two agencies do agree the case will not close without help from the public and they urge citizens that have any information to share it with investigators.
