Police in Grafton are still focusing their search for a missing woman on a culvert that empties into the Mississippi River.   Grafton Police tell the Big Z there has been a discovery of some personal belongings in the disappearance of 42-year-old Heather Bardsley, who hasn’t been seen since the night after Christmas when she was reportedly dropped off near her home. 

Grafton Police Chief Marshal Lewis tells The Big Z their most recent search turned up a zebra-print boot matching the pair she was wearing the night she went missing, as well as her wallet containing identification and credit cards.

Lewis says there is no reason to believe foul play was involved in her disappearance.  If searchers don't find her in the last 50 feet, Lewis says they will have to assume she was swept into the main channel of the Mississippi River.
