Volunteers are planning to resume searching this weekend for a Kansas State employee who hasn't been seen since Sunday.

KMAN reports the search for 56-year-old Jane Peterson will begin at 10:15 a.m. Saturday at the Tuttle Cove on Tuttle Creek Lake, north of Manhattan.

Peterson, of St. George, was reported missing Sunday by her family. Her pickup truck was found Monday evening near the Tuttle Cove area.

Dozens of soldiers from Fort Riley and law enforcement officers conducted an unsuccessful search Tuesday for Peterson, who works in the physics department at Kansas State.
