Local counties join water search for missing Blackfoot woman

On Wednesday, officials from Jefferson, Power and Bonneville county joined the Bingham County Sheriff's Office in the water search for the missing Blackfoot woman, Kelley Haney. 

"It gives a different perspective along with our divers, different eyes, different experience and they might see something different that we have not seen so far in our search efforts," commented Chief Deputy Jeff Gardner of the Bingham County Sheriff's Office. 

Gardner estimated about 21 divers will spend the day in the water looking for Haney. The divers started the search around 10 a.m. and plan on continuing throughout the day. 

Gardner said evidence about this case is what directs them to continue to search the Rose Ponds. 

"We have facts about this, everything points to the ponds and that is why we have really focused there but we don't have 100 percent certainty that is the case, so we continue our efforts into her private life and the river when the conditions have allowed us," said Chief Deputy Gardner. 

Due to lower water levels, the Bingham County Sheriff's Office has expanded their search into the river. 

While search efforts will continue, the weather plays a factor as to when and where officials can search for Haney.

"We plan a few days ahead, but really it is day by day, water conditions, weather conditions play into our planning," added Chief Deputy Gardner.
