Police Divers to Conduct Water Searches for Missing ECSU Student



    Alyssiah Marie Wiley is missing.

    A state police dive team will search several bodies of water on Thursday in the search for missing ECSU student Alyssiah Wiley.

    Divers will search waterways from Bridgeport to Willimantic, according to Lt. Paul Vance. They will begin in Bridgeport at 8:30 a.m. and move to Ansonia if time allows, Vance said.

    Wiley, 26, disappeared April 20. She was last seen near the Dairy Queen on Main Street in Willimantic on her way to Eastern Connecticut State University's campus.

    According to Vance, state police have no new leads on Wiley's disappearance, but investigators don't want to leave any stone unturned.

    On Wednesday, family and friends gathered in Ansonia in the latest search organized by Wiley's mother, Corrinna Martin.  She has already  organized searches for Wiley at Meriden's Hubbard Park and Bridgeport's Beardsley Park.

    Police found a car wanted in connection to Wiley's disappearance in Bridgeport three weeks ago. Investigators would not say why they were looking for the black Nissan Altima or who it belongs to.
