BARDSTOWN, KY (WAVE) - The boyfriend of a missing mother is a suspect in her disappearance and his ex-cop brother is likely involved, according to the Nelson County Sheriff.
Crystal Rogers, 35, was last seen in early July. Now, for the first time we are hearing from both brothers as they are questioned by detectives.
Rogers' parents have said from day one they've had no doubt who was involved in their daughter's disappearance.
"Every day you wake up and you think where is she, you know where is she out there," Rogers' mother Sherry Ballard said. "She has to be somewhere."

Just a couple days after Rogers was reported missing by her family, her long time, live in boyfriend, Brooks Houck, was interviewed by a Nelson County Sheriff's detective.
Brooks explained that he wasn't alarmed when he woke up and Crystal wasn't there, saying he believed she left after midnight to meet up with friends.
"It's not uncommon for them, when they go out and party they stay out the better part of the night, if not the whole night," Brooks said during the interview.
Brooks said he did try to call Crystal the next day and stressed to the detective that he is innocent. He said his main concern is the couple's two year old child, Eli.
