About 20 investigators from Utah and the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department have started searching the South Hill home of the husband and father-in-law of a Utah mother who’s been missing since 2009.
Susan Cox Powell, a Puyallup native, was last seen at her West Valley City, Utah, home on Dec. 6, 2009. There’s been no trace of her since.
About 10 investigators and forensic specialists from each agency are focusing on the South Hill-area home where Powell’s husband, 35-year-old Josh Powell, has been living since moving back to the area with the couple’s two sons after his wife’s disappearance. He has been living with his father.
