Officers were seen searching the barn at the east end of the property, near Salmon River Road, today. In the early days of the search, the barn and nearby corral were occupied by horses and cattle, but they have since been moved off the property. A group of officers were seen probing the ground near one of the entrances of the barn and digging with a shovel inside.

Equipment was on the site clearing snow from the area between the barn and a dig site west of the barn which is still obscured by black fences and covered by white tents. A tall portable light standard has also been placed nearby.

Police are asking the public for any information they may have about Genereaux in order to establish a timeline of events leading up to her disappearance.

Anyone who may have seen Genereaux or have any information are asked to call the police tipline at 1-877-987-8477.
