Minnesota Non-Profit Sets Up Search for Missing Woman

Volunteers from a Minnesota non-profit will continue the search for a missing woman this weekend in eastern North Dakota.

Michelle Newell, 45, has been missing since August 29th.

The Minnesota Community Policing Services Foundation says they may have narrowed down a search area but did not want to disclose the location until after the search is completed.

Timothy Barr, 51, was charged with Newell’s murder after witnesses say they heard him confess to friends but that case has since been dismissed due to lack of evidence.

The Cass County Sheriff’s Office asks anyone with barns or farm property to check for anything unusual.
