MONROE, Mich. (AP) — The Monroe County sheriff says investigators have interviewed about 140 people in the disappearance of a 22-year-old woman from an outdoor Halloween party, but most were too high or drunk to offer much help.

Dale Malone said Wednesday that officials have no evidence Chelsea Bruck was hurt or killed. But they’re challenged investigating her Oct. 26 disappearance from the party in Frenchtown Township, 35 miles south-southwest of Detroit.

About 600 costumed people attended the party, with live, loud music.

Malone says they’ve received about 300 tips and interviewed about 140 people but most were “intoxicated or stoned at the scene.”

They’re searching Michigan, Ohio and Indiana.

Witness report seeing Bruck and a man walking toward parked vehicles about 3 a.m. She was costumed as the fictional comic villain Poison Ivy.
