Buried Radio: KETR News Spot 06 - Feb. 24, 2021
It was around this time of year in 1991 when Carey Mae Parker seemed to disappear without a trace from southern Hunt County. Until three weeks ago — when a private search group located Parker’s car upside down in a bay north of her family’s home. Authorities lifted most of the 1980 Buick Skylark out of the water later the same day. This week, forensic divers from the Texas Department of Public Safety and others returned to Waco Bay to search for more submerged evidence. After marking spots Monday along the White Point Causeway on FM 751, they descended into Lake Tawakoni yesterday (Tuesday) morning — hoping to finally locate and bring Parker’s remains above water. The Hunt Co. Sheriff’s Office didn’t respond to calls and emails about the search. But Sheriff Terry Jones told members of Parker’s family at the lake that investigators had NOT located human remains and were NOT planning to resume operations today (Wednesday). For KETR News, I’m George Hale in Bloomington, Indiana.

From a Hunt County Sheriff's Office press release dated February 5, 2021:"On February 4, 2021 at approximately 5:43 pm, the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office Dispatch received a call from a search and recovery team advising they had located a vehicle in Lake Tawakoni near the causeway on FM 751. Hunt County Sheriff Terry Jones responded with patrol units and the Criminal Investigation Division to learn the search and recovery team were on the lake using sonar equipment when they discovered a vehicle in the lake. The search and recovery team, who was there with family members, advised investigators that the vehicle they had located was similar to a vehicle involved in a Hunt County missing person case, which the search and recovery team was familiar with. FM 751 was closed for a period of time as the vehicle was recovered from the water. Once the vehicle was recovered, it was confirmed the vehicle matched the description of a Hunt County missing person case. Investigators believe that the vehicle recovered from Lake Tawakoni is the vehicle belonging to Carey Mae Parker, who has been missing since in 1991."

Sgt. Jeff Haines of the Hunt Co. Sheriff’s Office said searchers used cadaver dogs and ground penetrating radar on three adjacent properties as part of the investigation into Parker's 1991 disappearance from the area of Quinlan, TX. Haines declined to elaborate on any results of the day's efforts before notifying Parker's family about the searches. But the detective did confirm the search areas included properties that belonged in the past to the family of Cody Songer, a man Parker dated before going missing in 1991.
