Search continues in Anchorage for missing woman

Posted: Thursday, May 08, 2003

ANCHORAGE (AP) Relatives and friends have been searching Anchorage greenbelts, trail heads and parking lots for a 21-year-old missing woman.

Police launched a ground and aerial search of the woods in South Anchorage Wednesday after a ponytail was found in the area.

Initially, police suspected it might be related to the weekend disappearance of Bethany Correira, who recently moved to Anchorage from Talkeetna. But state lab tests determined the ponytail was not Correira's.

The search didn't turn up any information on the missing woman, said Sgt. Scott Jessen. He said there are no leads in the case.

Meanwhile, Correira's family is offering a $5,000 reward for her safe return.
