Authorities search and tow car from missing woman’s home in Omaha


OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) – UPDATE: The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office confirms they are looking for the dump potentially related to the Cari Allen case.


Douglas County sheriff’s deputies were at the home of a missing Omaha woman Wednesday morning, finishing their search just before noon.

It’s day 4 of the search for 43-year-old Cari Allen.

“We are constantly researching based on the advice we receive,” Douglas County Sheriff’s Deputy Wayne Hudson told 6 News.

6 News saw a K-9 unit searching Stolley Prairie near 168th Street between Blondo Street and West Dodge Road.

Douglas County Sheriff’s Deputies conducted a search Wednesday morning, Nov. 23, 2022, near the home of a missing Omaha woman.

Stolley Prairie is 24 acres – plenty of ground to cover. The 43-year-old missing woman lives nearby, in a neighborhood near 168th and Blondo streets. She was last seen in this area late Saturday evening.

After an hour of following the tree lines, there was no sign of her, so investigators said they moved on to the next search area. 6 News spotted other investigators across 168th Street under West Dodge Road – a well-hidden known dump.

“I think they should look here because it’s a remote and lonely place,” said Omaha’s Jeri Whitmarsh. “You don’t know if she came here or if someone brought her here – that would be sad.”

Meanwhile, back at Allen’s home, lab techs removed envelopes of possible evidence. A tow truck driver also retrieved the dark sedan from the garage for further inspection at headquarters.

Investigators have said very little about Allen’s disappearance, other than that she was last seen around 11 p.m. Saturday at her home.

On Monday evening and Tuesday morning, Douglas County investigators, with assistance from the Topeka Police Department, conducted a search of a Kansas home. Nebraska investigators told 6 News he was connected to the Allen case.

A K-9 unit was also involved in this search.

No one came to the door in Topeka when the police asked. The house belongs to a man named Aldrick Scott.

The connection to both locations was apparently established after a strange 9-1-1 call Monday night from a third party in Texas, according to WIBW, our sister station in Topeka. The dispatch mentioned a code that means corpse.

Investigators brought in evidence from the Kansas home, but there was no sign of Scott — or Allen — so the mystery remains 150 miles apart for now.
