FOWLERVILLE (WWJ/AP) – A cold case team investigating the disappearance of a Lansing-area woman last seen in Livingston County 21 years ago is conducting new searches.
Authorities planned to use cadaver dogs Friday to search an area in Eaton County’s Delta Township, near Lansing, following a tip from someone who recently learned information about the investigation into Paige Renkoski’s disappearance through media reports.
Investigators say the man recalled seeing something unusual in the area years ago.
Authorities also plan a two-day search later this month in Livingston County’s Conway Township. That area was searched earlier in the year.
The 30-year-old Okemos woman was driving home from Detroit Metropolitan Airport when she disappeared in May 1990. Renkoski’s running car was found along the side of I-96 near Fowlerville with her purse and shoes still inside. Police have ruled the case a homicide even though her body hasn’t been found.
