    BARDSTOWN, KY (WAVE) – Family members and volunteers spent Monday searching a wooded area off the side of a Nelson County roadway for clues that might lead them to a missing mother of five.

    “We're just trying to find her,” Sherry Ballard said of her 35-year-old daughter Crystal Rogers.

    Ballard said she feared the worst as her and dozens of volunteers combed the area off of the Bluegrass Parkway near miles marker 12, outside of Bardstown.

    That is where family members found her car Sunday. All of her belongings were inside.

    “Her purse was in there, her cell phone was in there, her keys were in the ignition,” Ballard said. “She don't ever leave her cell phone, ever. She would have not gotten out of that car and left her cell phone in that car.”

    Nelson County Sheriff Ed Mattingly said there were no obvious signs of foul play near the car. What makes this case even tougher is the fact Rogers is the niece of a Nelson County deputy and Bardstown Police Captain Tom Roby.

    “If Crystal can hear our voice, we love you, want know where you are at. Contact us and let us know you are OK,” Roby said.

    Rogers was last seen Friday night by her boyfriend, Brooks Houck, on his family's farm where they were spending time with their 2-year-old son.

    “They went out and they came home and he went to bed and supposedly she stayed up on her phone,” Ballard said.

    “I want everybody to know that he has been completely corporative with our investigation and has tried to assist us in any way that he can,” Mattingly said of Houck.

    What's still unclear is how her 2007 maroon Impala ended up with a flat tire on the side of the Bluegrass Parkway.

    “Somebody saw something somewhere that will get us going in the right direction,” Mattingly said.

    Rogers’ parents are offering a $25,000 reward for information in the case.

    Anyone with information on Rogers' whereabouts is asked to call the Nelson County Sheriff's Office at (502) 348-1870.

    I was reading several articles and I noticed that the sheriff kept saying to please not accuse anybody yet. Especially when reporters are asking about the boyfriend, Brook Houck (since he was the last person to see her)

    Seems like he's an important man in that area.

    That definitely looks like her, and it looks like some drama in the comments about the little boy (Landon) who is her FB profile pic(s). Hmmmmm.

    Yeah, I'm confused....so Landon isn't her son? Because Crystal is posting comments saying she misses him, but then says she hopes his mom will grow up and do what's right...??

    In the comments on the Pray for Crystal FB page, someone mentioned that they couldn't believe this was happening to the family again, and someone else said that Crystal's aunt went missing years ago.

    I can't see the comments, but she could be fostering him.

    I'm confused about this case...was her boyfriend in the car with her when she pulled over on the highway because she had a flat? I wonder if she tried to fix the flat herself...and was hit by a car.

    So when was she last seen exactly & where? Someone posted a pick of his truck on fb asking if anyone had seen it friday & someone posted they passed it driving at 3.40 pm.

    The truck's extremely distinctive (well it would be in Australia anyway) but I don't know if the place & time mean anything.


    (can't screenshot so I'llbe back with a link soon)


    Edit

    Hope it works. Comment said



    My husband and I passed this truck on BG going towards Boston/Etown Friday at around 340 pm
    I have no clue what BG is.

    Investigators say Rogers was last seen at her boyfriend's house Friday night and he is cooperating with the investigation.

    However, her parents say he hasn't been helping them look for her.

    "Him or none of his family has been out to find her," Tommy Ballard said, Rogers' father. "We're the ones who reported her missing."
    http://www.lex18.com/story/29506588/...rdstown-mother

    The boyfriend of missing Kentucky mother Crystal Rogers defends himself in an exclusive interview with HLN’s Nancy Grace.

    “All of my efforts in searching for her have been done behind the scenes with the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office,” Brooks Houck told Grace Thursday.

    “I’ve been 100% completely honest with everyone. I’ve been 100% cooperative in everything that that has been asked of me. I’ve not asked for any kind of legal advice or assistance, an attorney of any nature. I’m 100% completely innocent in this and I have exhausted my efforts with the law enforcement agencies to gather all the facts necessary to allow me to have a clean name again,” Houck added.
    http://www.hlntv.com/video/2015/07/0...ks-nancy-grace


    The family says Rogers' aunt was abducted and murdered about 35 years ago. So now, for the second time, the family is struggling to cope with a missing person case.

    This case still confuses me. I know she was last seen by her boyfriend, but her car was found on the side of a highway with all of her belongings in it.

    I'm now thinking the car might have been planted there to throw people off. In order to do that, 2 people had to be involved.

    I thought the same thing at first, but surely there would have been at least a little blood left at the scene?

    To me it seems strange that her family members were the ones who found the car. On a road traveling toward somewhere she apparently had no plans to go.

    Unless it's one of those areas that's kind of "one way in, one way out" with just the main road cutting through.

    The youngest baby belongs to the boyfriend.
    Crystal is still married to another man, and 2 kids belong to him.
    The 2 oldest kids- IDK who they belong to. Maybe one man or two men.??? I don't think any of them live with Crystal except the baby.

    The police got a search warrant for the bf's farm yesterday. The reward is already up to $71,000

    Pretty much everybody thinks he had something to do with Crystal's disappearance.

    There's no new updates, but the whole community is still looking for her. Crystal's parents think she was never in that car and they firmly believe boyfriend did something to her.

    Actually, the BG is what they call the Bluegrass Parkway. It ends at I 65 and then if you go south, you can get on western ky pkwy and it takes you to bowling green. It's a good 2.5 hour drive at least.

    Brooks brother is a cop for Bardstown Police Department and it looks like his cruiser has been searched.

    Brooks brother is a cop for Bardstown Police Department and it looks like his cruiser has been searched.
    It would def. explain some things.

    Since shortly after Crystal Rogers went missing nearly two weeks ago, family members have voiced their suspicions that her boyfriend is tied in some way to her disappearance.

    But in recent days, those suspicions have expanded to encompass more than just Brooks Houck, her 33-year-old live-in boyfriend and father of one of her five children. Several family members have also raised questions about Houck?s brother, Nick Houck, who is a Bardstown Police officer.

    Several volunteers searching along Ky. 49 have reported seeing a Bardstown Police cruiser and another vehicle matching the description of Brooks? vehicle pass by their field headquarters in the direction of the Houck family farm.

    There have also been reports that Nick Houck was on administrative leave or suspended, and that his police cruiser had been seized as part of the investigation into Rogers? disappearance.

    Bardstown Police Chief Rick McCubbin acknowledged the rumors about Houck?s absence Thursday, and said they are false. But when pressed about the details of Houck?s cruiser, McCubbin declined to comment.

    ?He is not on administrative leave. He is not suspended. There?s nothing,? McCubbin said regarding Nick Houck?s duties with the department.

    McCubbin said his officer was due back on Monday and was currently off work with the rest of his patrol platoon as part of his normal duty rotation.

    When asked about Houck?s police cruiser, McCubbin said he could only confirm that the car had broken down and had to be towed. But it was not in the shop, and the Bardstown Police Department did not have the vehicle in its possession Thursday.

    When asked where the cruiser was, McCubbin said that was a question the Nelson County Sheriff?s Office would have to answer.

    Houck?s cruiser was allegedly seen traveling along Ky. 49 July 8 around sunset. Police have confirmed a search warrant was executed on the family farm ? the last place police say Rogers was reported being seen by anyone other than Houck ? on July 10.

    ?I would have to assume that?s true,? McCubbin said of witnesses? claims that they saw Houck?s cruiser passing through the area. ?He can take his car anywhere. To me that?s not alarming.?

    McCubbin said it was a take-home car, and Houck?s mother lives on the farm on Paschal Ballard Road near the intersection of Balltown and Loretto roads.

    McCubbin said Officer Nick Houck, a patrolman, would not have information about the pending search warrant for his family?s property. McCubbin said patrol officers normally don?t have knowledge of pending search warrants even in their own department, and he pointed out that Rogers? disappearance is being investigated by the Nelson County Sheriff?s Office.

    When contacted Thursday, Nelson County Sheriff Ed Mattingly would not comment on the status of the investigation, and said he would neither confirm nor deny if Officer Houck?s cruiser had been searched or processed for evidence.

    Mattingly said the investigation continues and his detectives are still waiting on lab results from some of the possible evidence they have recovered. He said the FBI has lended assistance.

    ?We?re not at a point where we need to be saying anything,? Mattingly said.

    The standard attempted to contact Nick Houck late Thursday but was unsuccessful.

    Police say Rogers was last seen on Friday, July 3, at the Houck family farm, in the company of Brooks Houck.

    Rogers was reported missing on July 5 by her parents around 2 p.m. after they say they grew concerned because they had not heard from their daughter. At around 5 p.m. Rogers? father and brother found her vehicle on the side of the westbound Bluegrass Parkway with a flat tire. Inside were her cell phone, keys and other personal items.

    The following Monday, the Sheriff?s Office held a press conference announcing she was missing and asking the public for help solving her disappearance. At that press conference, Mattingly acknowledged tensions between the boyfriend and family. He also described Houck as helpful and cooperating with the investigation.

    Shortly after its discovery, family and friends began searching the area surrounding the stretch along the Bluegrass Parkway where Rogers? car was found. Kentucky State Police and other agencies have also given support. A multitude of volunteers have joined in the search, and in recent days volunteers have shifted to other areas around the county, including the Ky. 49 area.

    Houck has made limited statements to local media despite numerous attempts to contact him, but did appear on the nationally broadcast ?Nancy Grace? show on July 9.

    During that interview, Houck said he had last seen Rogers the evening of July 3 after they returned from the family farm when he went to bed and she was still awake playing games on her phone. He said when he awoke, she was not in the house but he was not alarmed. He said the couple has had a ?stressed relationship? at times, and Rogers was known to leave for a cousin?s house to cope.

    Houck told Grace he tried calling Rogers on July 4 prior to heading to a family gathering.

    The family has repeatedly said to media that they question whether Brooks Houck has shared all the information he knows about Rogers? disappearance, and do not believe she was in her car when it was abandoned on the Bluegrass.

    Late Thursday afternoon, Bardstown Mayor John Royalty was asked whether the Sheriff?s Office had impounded Nick Houck?s police car, or was being questioned in the investigation.

    The mayor replied in a text message that the investigation is ongoing, and he can?t talk about it.

    Missing Bardstown woman's parents seeking grandparents rights for her youngest son

    BARDSTOWN, Ky. (WHAS11) – It has now been exactly six weeks since Bardstown mother of five, Crystal Rogers, was last seen.

    Crystal Rogers has been missing since July 3. Her car was found on the Bluegrass parkway with her belongings inside. Her parents, Sherry and Tommy Ballard, say what makes this harder on their family is that they have not been allowed to see their youngest grandson Eli, who Crystal shares with her boyfriend, Brooks Houck.

    "Not only did they lose their mother, they lost their brother too because they haven't seen him since this happened," Sherry Ballard, Crystal's mother said.

    By filing for grandparents rights, the Ballard's are hoping to be able to see 2-year-old Eli at least every other weekend and a day each week. They will have a court hearing next week.
    "We miss him I mean he is part of our family, we haven't seen him since this has a happened and I just sit and think what is going through his mind, he has his mom no more, he hasn't seen any of us, does he think we all just disappeared out of his life? And it's hard," Sherry Ballard said.

    The Ballard's say they are doing this for a number of reasons. They miss seeing Eli, want to remind him of his mother, and want him to be able to spend time with his brother and sisters.

    "It's been hard, I mean it's really hard on these kids, they can't see their brother," Tommy Ballard said.

    After six weeks of searching for their daughter in Nelson and Hardin counties, Tommy and Sherry Ballard are expanding their search to Marion County. They will be focusing on ponds and lakes near roadways in secluded areas. If you would like to help out with their search call 502-827-2803.

    If you know anything about Crystal's disappearance call the Nelson County Sheriff's Office at 502-348-3211 or Casey at 502-827-4541.
