TECUMSEH, Mich. (AP) — Investigators returned Monday, Oct. 11, to the rural home of a Michigan woman who has been missing since spring, walking through harvested fields and other areas of the property.

Dee Warner, 52, who lived near Tecumseh in Lenawee County, hasn’t been seen since late April. Sheriff Troy Bevier said the new search wasn’t based on a big tip.
