Earlier:

Just got a report from a friend who was just in Floyd that there is considerable activity at one of the spots where Sarabeth Hammond may have been Wednesday night before disappearing.

The caller at 3:15 p.m., an old friend, said, "I was just in Floyd and there are a lot [her emphasis] of emergency vehicles at the house across the street from the Bent Mountain Bistro."

Another colleague, who used to be a reporter, messaged me, "They have people repelling down the [mountain]. We can't see a vehicle from our vantage point, but can see firemen moving slowly down the rough terrain."

Yet another message went, "My husband went up to check our family property in copper hill since it's nearby and we have game cameras up, etc, and he just called and said the same thing... Lots and lots of people gathered and activity near the house in the big curve as you start down the mountain." 

Police have been searching the area of the bistro for Sarabeth Hammond, who has been missing since Wednesday evening. She was reported at the Bent Mountain Bistro Wednesday after having caller her mother from dropping a friend off in Roanoke, saying she was on the way home to change clothes.
