BARDSTOWN, Ky. (WDRB) -- Signs are everywhere in Bardstown as the community prays for Crystal Rogers' safe return.

"I've had so many psychics contact me and some tell me she is, some will tell me she isn't. I'm not going to say she isn't. I'm still holding out hope that she is. I think that's what keeps me going. I'm hoping that she is," Crystal Rogers' mom, Sherry Ballard, said.  

Her father and others are searching a Willisburg farm with cadaver dogs hoping to find clues about her disappearance. It's a property her family says Rogers' boyfriend Brooks Houck had looked at.

"This farm he's had interest in purchasing before," Ballard said. "We're searching any place that he's had any kind of contact with. I'm not accusing him, but he's the last one that saw my daughter."

Houck says he's cooperating with authorities.

The mother of five was last seen on Friday, July 3, at the Houck family farm in Nelson County. Her family says investigators searched the farm twice, but it was raining part of the time. Rogers' mom wants to search again.

"The family is not cooperating at all," said Ballard. "They won't have anything to do with us. They won't let us on the farm. They've turned us down flat unless we have a search warrant."

Rogers car was found on the Bluegrass Parkway with a flat tire, her purse, phone, keys and diaper bag still in it.

The family needs more help with a large search this weekend. Reward money is at $71,000.

People interested in helping with the search are meeting at the family's storage business (119 Wildcat Lane) at 9 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
