On Tuesday, police reached out to people who own land in Madison, Estill, Jackson and Rockcastle counties asking them to check their land for "freshly turned earth and unusual smells."

Trooper Paul Blanton explained, "They know their land much better than we would if we were going there. We're certainly not encouraging anyone to trespass on someone else's property. But certainly on their own property, check the ditch lines, fence rows, for anything unusual."
