Investigating officers met up at the location with Cabool police and Missouri State Highway Patrol officers, but no suspects were located. However, officers did locate a methamphetamine lab, and a bottle found among the materials tested positive for meth. It was turned over to the South Central Drug Task Force and investigation continues.

The bike’s owner reported on Sept. 7 that it had been found in a deep ditch on Highway 17 north of Highway W. The case is still being investigated, and one of the two men named by the daughter is reportedly a person of interest.
