MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Newly-released search warrants provide more details into the investigation of Kelly Dwyer's disappearance in Milwaukee.
The 27-year-old woman has been missing since October 10th, when she was last seen with her boyfriend Kris Zocco.
According to media reports, the unsealed warrants showed that police used a cadaver dog to check Zocco's apartment for evidence of homicide and hiding a corpse. The dog was said to have found Dwyer's scent in five areas of the apartment building -- including a trash chute, a trash room, and near a garbage bin.
That apparently led police to a landfill in October to look for Dwyer's body. Police said they found, "potential items of evidence" -- but they're not saying what it was.
Also, the search warrants showed that investigators got suspicious when Zocco gave conflicting times to officers about his whereabouts the night Dwyer vanished.
The 39-year-old Zocco has not been charged in her disappearance -- but he was arrested twice soon afterward on drug charges and 17 counts of child pornography possession. Both those cases are still pending, and Zocco is free on a quarter-million dollar bond.
Police say they still consider Dwyer's disappearance an active missing persons' case.
