    A massive search with area law enforcement has taken place the past few days for missing person Denita M. Hedden, 37, of Royal Lakes, in a large area that includes not only Royal Lakes, but surrounding areas.

    ?There are approximately 100 participants involved in the search effort,? Lt. Kristopher Tharp, Deputy Commander of the Major Case Squad of Greater St. Louis, said today. He is also a Madison County Sheriff?s Office representative in the case. ?There are participants involved in the search representing police and sheriff?s departments, search and rescue teams, and fire departments from all over the state of Illinois and Missouri.?

    Hedden was reported missing by an acquaintance at 11:49 a.m. on Jan. 28, 2018. Macoupin County deputies were told that Denita was last seen leaving her residence in Royal Lakes, Illinois, around 2 p.m. on January 25, 2018 (Thursday). Denita was last seen wearing a maroon hoodie sweatshirt with orange sleeves and blue jeans. Denita is 5?00? and weights approximately 110 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes.

    The Illinois State Police air operations crew has also been involved in the search. The fact that Hedden has had no contact with family and friends for an extended amount of time raises considerable concern. This disappearance, due to its duration, is considered suspicious.

    ?We are covering a rather large geographical area,? Tharp said. ?The best way to put in perspective is to include Royal Lakes and areas northwest and southwest of Royal Lakes. These denote areas near her home and areas she frequented. The areas near her home are very rural and isolated areas and consists of wooded and agricultural areas. This requires a lot of people to cover.?

    He continued and said, ?the search is ongoing, but this is an effort to make a dent or find clues as to why she so abruptly went missing. Some missing items may well fill in the missing puzzle piece. We hope to have some answers to questions we have.?

    Anyone with any information concerning Hedden contact any of the following numbers:

    Foul play suspected in case of missing mother of 4, police say

    After a seven-day extensive search, the Major Case Squad of Greater St. Louis suspects foul play in the disappearance of a mother of four.

    In a news release, Major Case Squad Investigators said Denita Hedden‘s, 37, disappearance is suspicious based on various factors including evidence recovered in the investigation.

    First responders canvassed over 35 square miles by land and air to locate Hedden, who disappeared on Jan. 25. The search spanned across 22,400 acres of rural terrain and 70 road miles. So far they have not found her.
    Investigators have identified a person of interest but no other information has been released related to the case.

    Police are asking property owners, farmers,and residents to inspect their property for anything unusual that they may encounter or observe.

    The Macoupin County Sheriff’s Office is taking back over the investigation.

    Maybe she got lucky at the casino and met with trouble afterward? Hmmm. Bet her kids and hubby are worried sick. I'd be ready to nuke the planet if anything happened to my wife, and if I had any clue as to who was responsible for her disappearance...suffice it to say they would find no trace of their remains.

    I hope she is found safe, and soon.
    Don't like what I have to say? I respect that. Now go fuck yourself.

    Police, friends fear worst in case of missing Southern Illinois woman

    The Major Case Squad conducted a number of searches for Hedden in early February, covering more than 22,000 acres. At one point, they asked for residents in Macoupin County to report "anything unusual."

    Kahl said the police have suspects — her family and friends do, too.

    "I pretty much knew who the finger would be pointing out, and nobody’s been able to wrap him up with it yet," Dyer said.

    Hedden's estranged husband, Micheal Hedden, is not a suspect, police said.

    "We're not going to name a suspect at this time, but I can tell you the husband is not a suspect," Kahl said.

    Hedden's brother Dyer said he was with Micheal Hedden the day Denita Hedden went missing and never considered that he had anything to do with Denita's disappearance.

    "I was with Mike all that day, and the kids," Dyer said.

    Hedden's estranged husband, Mike Hedden, said he had called a psychic for his own clarity and to learn where Denita Hedden could be found.

    Mike Hedden says a a psychic told him the woman is in water with rip rap — loose stone —and in sight of a red barn. A second psychic told him something similar, "almost verbatim," Mike Hedden said.

    But there's a lot of water between where Denita Hedden lived and where she was last seen at the Ameristar Casino in St. Charles.
    The Macoupin County Emergency Management Agency worked with dozens of search teams, including cadaver dogs, but remain frustrated.

    Their efforts included searching Bunker Hill Reservoir, both when it was covered in ice and after it had melted, said EMA Coordinator Jim Pitchford. They’ve drained 10 feet of the lake to expose more shoreline for the dogs, who are rewarded when they find human remains. The dogs are alerting to something, he said, but if it’s related to Hedden’s disappearance or not no one can say.

    “None of these dogs have been rewarded because they haven’t found a target,” he said.

    Now, the dogs need a break.

    Um, perhaps someone should clue these people in about NAMUS. This makes me mad. Now they're going to spend money and time to duplicate efforts.

    For the family and friends of missing woman Denita Hedden, life has become a waiting game.

    Each time a body is found in the Southern Illinois and St. Louis area, they hold their breath, simultaneously hoping it's her and praying it's not. Police suspect foul play in Hedden's death but have yet to find her body.

    Their situation isn't uncommon. All across the U.S., there are thousands of unidentified bodies lying in county morgues, and thousands more missing people.

    But there's no national database that can easily be searched to match up a body with a missing person.

    “It’s a huge national problem to get one central repository for all the case data to be compared,” said Illinois State Police Lt. Abby Keller. “The unfortunate reality is that a lot of missing-person cases are matched to unidentified human remains cases … and the likelihood of making a match to human-remains cases increases with the ability to gather DNA from the family members.”

    To help see if some of the missing people and unidentified bodies match up, Illinois State Police and the Missouri State Highway Patrol are partnering with police departments across the St. Louis area to collect DNA and update profiles on missing people.
