Police in Grafton are shifting their focus in the search for a missing woman.   42-year-old Heather Bardsley has been missing for nearly a month, having last been seen the day after Christmas.  The law-enforcement theory is that she was swept into the Mississippi River during the intense flash flooding.

Grafton Police Chief Marshal Lewis tells The Big Z they will continue to try and find Bardsley.

Bardsley's family continues to look for her, and Lewis says the family will be allowed to continue their search in pursuit of closure.  He also notes that a rumor going around that the family is being charged a fee to do so is not true.
