Kiki Campbell, now the Polk County Police Assistant Chief, was an investigator on the Liley case when he went missing five years ago.
“All of our leads have been exhausted,” she said. “Everything has been followed up on. There are no leads and he has not been found.”
Liley, 40, worked at the Grady Road landfill and records showed he has clocked into work but had not clocked out. He was last seen around 4:45 p.m. of the evening shift.
Liley was first reported missing the next day around 8 a.m. when his truck was found at the landfill by co-workers.
Police, volunteers, and firefighters spent two days searching the area for Lilely.
Sediment ponds at the landfill were drained, Campbell said. Police also brought in body-sniffing dogs but that was to no avail because of the landfill’s smell of trash and dead animals, she said.
Campbell said trash was also sorted through to see if Liley’s body was there.
No foul play was ever suspected. Campbell said Liley’s cell phone was found at his home.
