I bet Big Bad Daddy Anthony has taken his new boat up there to help search. He has probably been really busy with his boat searching for all the missing people and that is why we haven't heard anything out of the Ants lately.

Sorry, I just had to do that.

Update: Search Continues for Katrina Smith

Updated: Sun 8:09 PM, Oct 28, 2012

MACHESNEY PARK (WIFR) -- Detectives are working into the weekend to help find a local woman who went missing nearly one week ago.

~Snipped~

Her brother took charge of the search efforts on Sunday after flying in from Oklahoma on Saturday night.

“It definitely hurts inside right now that I don’t know where my sister is at but being in the military for 18 years, I know right now I need to be the leader of the family and focus on helping directing the efforts of these people to the appropriate areas,” says Chad Kaltved.

The Winnebago County Sherriff’s Department had a boat on the river on Sunday searching the shoreline but found no sign of Smith.

Police getting 'relevant' tips on missing Machesney Park woman

Search of Rock River turns up no new evidence over weekend

She was last seen by her husband, Todd C. Smith, about a week ago when she left their Tetterhall Lane home on an errand. Winnebago County Sheriff’s Police are treating the case as a missing person investigation but the nature of her disappearance is suspicious, Deputy Chief Dominic Iasparro said.

~Snipped~

“People are calling with thoughts and suspicions, bits and pieces of information that is relevant,” Iasparro said this morning. “When something like this happens, people come together and if there is something good that comes out of bad incidents, it’s that it shows people are concerned for one another.”

~Snipped~

The initial missing person report filed on Tuesday by Todd Smith was made in Roscoe. Katrina Smith had been staying at friend’s condominium in Roscoe. She was separated from her husband, but had been at their home in Machesney Park at least twice the day before she was reported missing.

Iasparro could not comment on whether the husband is being investigated as a potential suspect. He said the husband has been assisting in the search along with other members of Katrina Smith’s family.

Ales - thanks for the info on this case, I grew up in Rkfd and know this area well. I hope she is OK & didn't end up in the Rock River - curious about the husband. I'll be watching this case closely, a bit close to 'home' for me.

Hi Cubs Fan,

I'm growing impatient with the pace of the investigation into Katrina's disappearance, I think the Winnebago Police Department should ask for assistance from the State Police and the FBI. I also think that they should use a professional diving team to search the Rock River. They should also appeal to the media to keep the case in the news.

The police has neither denied nor confirmed if they are investigating her husband, I haven't heard/read anything about a search warrant being served to search his house and its surroundings.

I'm glad you are following this case, I haven't "seen" you here since the Sandusky trial. Very Happy

I'm looking forward to reading your comments and discussing this case.

It is great to "see" you!

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- It's been exactly one week since a Machesney Park woman vanished.

“It's been horrible, I just want her to come home.”

One week after police say 30-year-old Katrina Smith said she was going to run some errands, her husband says he's still waiting for his wife to come home.

"She said I will be back later and that was the last we had heard of her," said Katrina Smith’s husband.

Smith is speaking out for the first time since he reported his wife missing.

~Snipped~

Smith says he and Katrina didn't live in separate homes, like police reported, but that his wife was house sitting in Roscoe. He says the two have been happily married for seven years and that he is devastated by her disappearance.

"I just want her to call or come home or let us know she's safe,” Smith said.

“At first we were really thinking of her rescue, but right now we're really trying to find the body. It's hard, you know right now I think everybody's thinking a little bit more dark you know, something must have happened to her,” said one relative, Laura Linley.

"What it comes down to is if you know someone and that someone is important to you, you don't want to give up. You don't want to give up hope," said Creig Day, a friend of the family.

"I've been searching since Thursday morning when I flew in from O'Hare [Airport]." -explains Kaltved.

Kaltved serves with the U.S. Army's Special Operations Command. He was training in Oklahoma when he got the news that Katrina was missing. Kaltved's been calling on those military skills.

"It's helpful in a lot ways. I can look at it tactically and look at an area and understand ins and outs, likely avenues of approach and boundaries. On the outside I can kind of hold everything inside and stay strong for the family, be the leader of the family, and be able to drive on and stay motivated everyday."

Kaltved says he doesn't believe Katrina ran away. According to him, she was supposed to be interviewed for a new job the day she was reported missing.

Smith is married and while her residence is on Tetterhall Lane in Machesney Park, she recently has been staying in Roscoe, according to the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Department. She worked at Camryn Company in Belvidere, Ill., where she was employed in the human resource department.

In TV media reports, Smith’s husband said his wife was house sitting in Roscoe, but that they were happily married.

However, Deputy Chief Dominic Iasparro said Smith was separated from her husband and living in another location in Roscoe.


“I can’t make any comments about what the husband is saying,” he said.

Iasparro said the police are following a lot of information gathered.

MACHESNEY PARK — The public is invited to attend a prayer vigil at 7 p.m. Thursday at Schoonmaker Park in support of the family of Katrina Smith.

The 30-year-old Machesney Park woman has been missing since Oct. 22.

ROCKFORD - Hundreds of volunteers have joined together during the past 14 days. Searching parks and industrial areas, and following up on tips and advice Katrina Smith's family members have received from the community.

Investigators have also been working tireless on the case. There are currently 8 detectives focused on finding what happened to Katrina Smith after she was last seen around 9 at night leaving her home in Machesney Park two weeks ago.

MACHESNEY PARK (WIFR) -- The search for missing Machesney Park woman Katrina Smith has been non-stop for the last two weeks and now her family is enlisting the help of local hunters.

Katrina's family says they haven't been able to search Rock Cut State Park as thoroughly as they'd like, mostly because it's such a big area. So when the park is closed for deer and turkey hunting this weekend, they're making sure every hunter gets a flyer with her picture on it.

Today a couple of dozen people searched the southwest corner of the Park they found a woman's Jacket, but there's no way to know if it's Katrina’s until police send it for testing......
