The police have announced that where they were digging at a home on 70th street was in connection with the Zoe Campos case.  After Zoe went missing, her phone pinged around Lowery Field, which is the where the authorities were digging when they found the bone.

The house on 70th Street has been a rental for years.

Police said:

On Wednesday, November 7th, new investigative leads on the 2013 disappearance of Zoe Campos led investigators to a home in the 1900 block of 70th Street. Based on that lead, additional resources such as cadaver dogs were brought in from an outside agency to assist with searching the back yard. A bone was located by Lubbock Police Department investigators and the area was secured. Multiple units including LPD crime scene investigators, LPD forensic specialists and investigators with the Lubbock County Medical Examiner’s Office have assisted with the investigation.

At this time, the findings and that specific area remain an active part of the investigation.  LPD will continue to search the area for possible evidence.

Post by Zoe’s mom

Missing Zoe Campos’ mom, Melinda has posted on Facebook that the family has a private investigator involved in her daughter’s case.  New information has come out that whatever happened to Zoe “took place in her car,” but the inexcusable information is that the her car was never processed by the police department.  After two years, they never checked her car for leads.

Her 1997 silver Lincoln Town Car was spotted at the Driftwood Apartments on Utica Avenue near 55th Street by Zoe’s sister.  It was being driven by an unknown person.  Savannah gave chase and the man got out of the car and ran away.   The person, who may have been a young man wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt.

Since you’re here

I have a small favor to ask. More people are reading Missing Persons of America than ever and asking for their family member to be shared. I do it because I believe that every single missing person matters, and they all need equal attention. It can’t be done any quicker, and with less boundaries than social media. Last year, I was bombarded daily with more and more cases to share.  I found myself falling behind as I work 10 hours a day to feature missing people. Also, the network has grown so large that we are in need of an internet host that can serve the growth, so the website does not go down. Many don’t realize that Missing Persons of America independent, investigative posting takes a lot of time and hard work to produce. Frankly, I need funds. If everyone who reads this website, who likes it, can help, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support Missing Persons of America and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
