Woodward was reportedly last seen in 2010 conversing with a man in the parking lot by coworkers at the Eunice Smith Nursing Home in Alton. Woodward’s car remained on the lot with the windows down, and her cellphone and credit cards had not been used.

Law enforcement was viewed Tuesday searching an extremely wooded and hilly area with a Piasa Creek tributary running through it, southeast of the Crystal Lake and Grange Hall Road intersection in Jersey County. The area is within seven to eight miles northwest of Brighton.

There was excavating equipment, law enforcement on four-wheelers, along with law enforcement vehicles at the scene on Tuesday.
