BLACKFOOT — The search for a 37-year-old Blackfoot woman who went missing on Thursday is still ongoing.

Bingham County Sheriff Craig T. Rowland said Tuesday that they are continuing to comb the Rose Ponds area north of Blackfoot where Kelley Haney’s vehicle and cell phone were found. They are also following up on all the leads they’ve received.

The search, which began Friday morning, has involved scuba divers, police canines, airplanes and drones in recent days.

Haney’s family became concerned Thursday night after they hadn’t heard from her for several hours. So they used an online program to track the location of her cellphone to Rose Ponds. They searched the area that night and discovered her vehicle the next morning. That’s when they reported her missing.

A local man told sheriff’s deputies that a female was swimming in Rose Ponds on Thursday. He asked her if she was OK and she gave him a thumbs up. But Rowland said the man didn’t know for sure if the person he saw was Haney.

She is described as being 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighing 135 pounds. Authorities are asking anyone with knowledge of Haney’s whereabouts to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 208-785-1234.
