LEE COUNTY, AL (WTVM) -

The Lee County Sheriff's Office and the Phenix City Department was searching property in Ladonia for the remains of a missing Phenix City woman Tuesday morning.

After the search, officials did not find anything in connection to the remains of Kristi Sharritt.

Sharritt, the wife of Jeffrey Sharrit whose remains were found in Salem, AL in 2015, was last seen in July 2014, according to her family members. His case is being treated as a homicide. 

"We did some checking to see where they lived,” said Captain George Staudinger, with the Phenix City Police Department.

That search led investigators to 47 Davis Circle, the property empty now after a trailer caught fire years ago.

"We brought the cadaver dogs out to see if there were any areas they alerted to,” said Captain Staudinger.

The K-9 units found nothing of interest during their search. Crews then moved to a well on the property using cameras to go inside under the water searching for clues and neither search gave the officers additional information as to what may have happened.

"We would like to think that she is alive safe somewhere but after three years the chance that she is a homicide victim is pretty high,” said Captain Staudinger.

Many people have asked if the couple had been missing for three years why no one had reported it.

"Jeffrey had a burglary warrant at the time that he came up missing. So, they were involved in some burglaries and thefts of property and criminal activity so the family honestly believed they may be on the lamb on the run from law enforcement,” said Captain Staudinger.

Anyone with information on this case should call Phenix City police or the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.
