The sheriff’s office has not yet disclosed what that new information is or the results of the search at the property.

Moyer, 36 at the time, was last seen March 6, 2009. Her husband reported two days later that he found the front door of her Tenino home open and her car in the driveway. Investigators determined that foul play was involved in Moyer’s disappearance and she is presumed dead.
