Update: Welsh not located in Eureka search Monday night

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt says Kevin Welsh was not located in Monday night's search in Eureka.

Overnight, Greenwood County officials deferred all questions about Monday evening's search for Welsh to the Kansas Attorney General's Office.

Authorities concentrated a search effort in north central Eureka for several hours. Greenwood County officials confirmed they were searching for Welsh in the areas of Eighth and Oak and Eighth and Walnut, sectioning off those areas and clearing some abandoned buildings in the area, but gave no further updates.

This is the latest development in what has become a nearly two-week search for Welsh, who is suspected of killing Keith and Sheila Kriesel and injuring Sheila Kriesel's daughter, Catherine Scheff, as part of a domestic violence incident just outside Eureka on Oct. 2. Early in the investigation, authorities also conducted high-profile searches in Eureka and also Welsh's hometown of Toronto.

The Kriesels, meanwhile, were buried Saturday, with members of the Patriot Guard present.
