No leads on missing woman

Geneseo, N.Y. -- It has been nearly a week since Cora Kalous, 37, went missing.

On Sunday, special rescue teams searched for hours around the river and in the forest by her home but found nothing.

Unfortunately, nothing was turned up today in the 700 acres nothing was turned up," said Officer Jeffrey Szcezesniak of the Geneseo Police Department. "No lead."

Kalous was last seen by her home in the Geneseo Highlands development. Investigators said Kalous was last seen walking into the forest behind her home.

Police said Kalous was highly intoxicated at the time and was also taking medication.

Tracy Myers lives just two doors away from Kalous and described her as a very friendly neighbor.

It's a huge shock that it happened in this little area and she knew everyone around here, said Myers. "It's horrible. It's all that everyone is just talking about."

Another family friend of Kalous said, "She used to take walks a lot but she never just walked off like she did."

Another big concern with her disappearance was the weather. On Tuesday, it was a nice day, but the day after she disappeared, police said the conditions were treacherous because of the blizzard.

In this type of situation where someone's outside for an extended period of time in low temperature conditions, it can be very negative," Szczesniak said.

Investigators said they won't cover any more ground unless they find a new lead. They also said they may look to the Geneseo River once the weather warms up.

"I just hope they find her, said Myers. I hope she's all right and everything."

Szczesniak also said with so much time that has passed and the conditions outside, the search may end up turning into a recovery.
