Sheriff Suspects Foul Play
Wednesday afternoon, the Cole County Sheriff said he thinks criminal activity or other players may be involved in Haslag's disappearance.
Her car was found abandoned in Callaway County.
Thirty-one-year old Haslag was living in Russellville, about 14 miles southeast of Jefferson City, when she went missing.
Neighbors in the town say she'd only been living there for three months. The Cole County Sheriff's department is following leads but says it has no evidence within its county to work with.
"We're doing everything that we can think of within our power to locate her. We've certainly followed up on voluminous numbers of leads," said Cole County Sheriff Greg White. "But after this length of time, with no one having any tangible contact with her, we certainly have to look at the possibility that criminal activity could be involved."
KOMU learned Haslag was supposed to appear in court in Miller County Wednesday on drug trafficking charges. White was surprised when KOMU told him.
Haslag is charged with possessing materials to make methamphetamine and intent to distribute marijuana. Both are Class B felonies.
The Miller County court confirmed Haslag spent time in jail on May 25 and knew her court date was Wednesday.
The Cole County Sheriff's department was not aware of the charges and did not discuss how these charges could have contributed to Haslag's disappearance.
