Warrant Obtained In Case Of KY Woman Missing For 18 Years

A person of interest has been named in the case of a Kentucky woman who vanished in 2000. Scottsville police say 23-year-old Peggy Sue Ashley was last seen on July 29, 2000, getting into a truck belonging to Calvin Smith, of Munfordville. Authorities have now obtained a warrant to search a barn on Smith’s property.

Ashley fought with her boyfriend and reported the fight to authorities hours before she disappeared. Surveillance video shows her later driving into a parking lot followed by another car and then getting into a white truck. A male acquaintance told authorities he drove her to a pay phone and brought her back to her car. Video doesn’t show her return.

Authorities said Ashley’s boyfriend was eliminated as a suspect.
