Search Continues for Purdue Student Wade Steffey … into Missouri

The search continues fro the missing 19 year old Purdue University student Wade Steffey. Investigators went to Missouri to check out two suspects, 27 year old David Bradley and 21 year old Jeffrey Thurman who were charged in the beating death of 56-year-old Ricky Haynes of Farmington, MO.

Investigators questioned two suspects in a Missouri murder who were believed to have been in the Lafayette area when a missing Purdue University student was last seen.

But police don’t believe the men they talked to over the weekend were involved in the disappearance of 19-year-old Wade Steffey, a freshman from Bloomington. He was last seen early on January 13th leaving a party at the Phi Kappa Theta fraternity house on the north side of campus.

Purdue spokeswoman Jeanne Norberg says while police don’t think the men are involved in Steffey’s case, they did request D-N-A samples from the men just in case. (WAVE 3)

The National Center for Exploited Children announced Sunday it will take up the case of Purdue University student Wade Steffey

The announcement came a day after hundreds of students and two police K-9 units scoured West Lafayette for Steffey’s cell phone and other clues about his disappearance. The search failed to yield any new evidence.

To help with the investigation, Purdue University several days ago asked its trash hauler to begin setting aside garbage collected in the area, said university spokeswoman Jeanne Norberg. The goal is to prevent the disposal of evidence investigators might have overlooked. (Boiler Station)
