CAMDEN COUNTY, Ga. -- On Tuesday morning, the Camden County Sheriff's Office released new information in the case of missing woman Ivy Merck. Merck was last seen in Athens, Ga. on August 23.
Deputy William Terrell, public information officer for the Camden County Sheriff's Office, said they are following up on every lead they have received. Last week, CNN featured Merck's story, which generated some additional tips.
Terrell said investigators with the Camden County Sheriff's Office will meet later this week with criminal profilers to discuss the case and get their professional opinions. Much of the focus of the investigation has centered on South Florida.
Police found Merck's car in Broward County August 30. Terrell said inside the vehicle police found two notes: one to Merck's family and one to her roommate. Both notes were short, Terrell said, and expressed Ivy's desire to get away because of unnamed pervasive issues in her life.
Terrell said while they have made progress in the case, the Sheriff's Office is not yet able to discuss those details.
The family of Ivy Merck has fully cooperated with law enforcement, Terrell said, and are very concerned for her well being.
