Police have asked residents in the southwest Logan area to review any video surveillance they may have collected over the weekend that may show Whipple. Residents are also asked to check their yards, outbuildings, containers and garbage cans for anything they don’t recognize.

Elizabeth was last seen Saturday at 2 a.m. at her home in southwest Logan before being discovered missing later that morning. Whipple was arrested Saturday on unrelated warrants and police say he has been uncooperative with authorities concerning Elizabeth’s disappearance.

The search remained ongoing as of Tuesday morning. Logan police are expected to give an update on the investigation at 11 a.m. will post updates as we receive them.
