OREGON (WTVR)–Police are searching a rural property near Salem, Oregon, after a tip that Susan Powell’s body could be buried there, according to CBS 6 affiliates KSTU.

Powell has been missing since Dec. 6, 2009. Her husband, Josh Powell, has always been considered a “person of interest” in her disappearance. He killed himself and the couple’s two children in an explosion and house fire in February 2012.

Powell’s father, who was helping to raise her children, is in Oregon. “This could be a place where they could have dumped Susan’s body,” he said to KSTU.
