Last week there was a lot of activity around the Huron area regarding the search for Rachel Cyriacks. November 13th marked 10 years since her disappearance. Much speculation has gone into what happened to Rachel and who is responsible. One of the last things Rachel was known to be doing was picking up her husband Brad Cyriacks at the Beadle County jail. He had completed a shortened sentence for a violation of a protection order that Rachel has filed against him in the month of August of 2013. The search along the James River north east of Huron started quietly on Tuesday last week and erupted with social media and television news crews arriving on the scene Wednesday. On the anniversary of the disappearance South Dakota Attorney General Mary Jackley reminded citizens of the missing person tip line.
After that announcement a tip came in to the tip line or a sheriff department. A preliminary search with a dive crew was conducted on November 19th which was billed as a “training excersise” what the initial dive crew found is speculation.
The second dive crew began there search along the James River on November 28th.
After Wednesday November 30th and the media blitz crews completed their search of the scene. Information at this point will be slow to come. In a release from the SD Attorney General’s office it was confirmed that an investigation took place in Huron Wednesday near Huron led by the SD Division of Criminal Investigation and other agencies were involved. The release also said this is an open investigation. The Missing Person tip line is available 24/7, that number is 605-773-3331.
