GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - After mysteriously disappearing, Marshall County Sheriff’s Deputies are searching diligently for a missing mother.

Casey Yancy was reported missing by her husband early Tuesday morning. Now, Yancy’s sister Jodi Maddux wants answers after Casey disappeared from her home on Aldridge Gap Road.

WAFF 48 also talked to a neighbor, Walter Lechman.

“It doesn’t make me feel very good, and I hate to see things like that happen,” said Lechman,

For several years, Lechman has owned and managed several homes here on Aldridge Gap Road in Guntersville. For the most part, he said the community is pretty peaceful, and they haven’t had a lot of crime in the area.

But that all changed on Tuesday Morning when 27-year-old Casey Yancy mysteriously vanished from her home.

After discovering her disappearance, her husband called the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office around 7:30 a.m. The next day, deputies searched nearby woods, including ALEA officials with a helicopter, but were not successful in finding the young mother.

On the day of Yancy’s disappearance, Lechman was leaving his home around 4 a.m., and he said he saw Yancy with another man outside her truck.

“I noticed they were parked on the side of the road, and I drove by real slow and stopped and looked, and there was a man and woman there. They were parked on the opposite side of the road. I said to myself what’s going on here; in the middle of the night and morning parked,” said Lechman.

Lechman also spoke to investigators about what he saw in hopes; to bring Yancy back home safe to her family.

Investigators are working on leads, and they would like anyone with information to contact them at the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office at (256) 582-2034.
