Police resume search of landfill in case of missing woman Kelly Dwyer

MILWAUKEE-- Milwaukee Police resumed their search at a landfill in Menomonee Falls Sunday for evidence related to the investigation of missing woman Kelly Dwyer.

Police searched the landfill Saturday, but said that nothing related to Dwyer’s disappearance was found.

A search group was also formed Saturday to look for Dwyer or clues to her whereabouts on Milwaukee’s east side where she was last seen two weeks ago.

The last man to see her was 38-year-old Kris Zocco.

He has not been charged in connection with Dwyer's case. But Zocco has been charged with 17 counts of possession of child pornography and 3 felony drug counts and two misdemeanors.

When police were talking to Zocco about Dwyer's disappearance they found marijuana, a small amount of cocaine, some prescription drugs and drug paraphernalia.

When they executed a search warrant on Zocco's apartment while investigating the disappearance of Dwyer they found several CD's and an external hard drive inside a cardboard box on the floor containing child pornography.

He is expected back in court Monday for his preliminary hearing on drug related charges.

Police ask that anyone with information related to Dwyer's disappearance call sensitive crimes at 414-935-7405.
