A family is looking for answers after their loved one, Darrell Turley disappeared. They've gone without sleep, jumping at every phone call and following every lead. Friday night, there was a cruel twist in the case.

Crews pulled a car Friday night from the Ohio River in Ironton, but it turned out not to be Darrell Turley's car. That means another sleepless night for his family and friends. They're still hopeful, but really are looking for closure at this point.

It took crews more than five hours to get the car out of the Ohio River. They noticed it on sonar and sent divers down to connect it to a tow truck to reel it in. Five painstaking hours for Turley's family to watch from the bank. One the one hand, they were praying this would not be Darrell's Chevy Cavalier, leaving some hope he was still alive.

On the other hand, what his family is really looking for is closure...answers to what happened on April 15th in Ironton. Instead they went home Friday with only pain and frustration. They say they know someone out there has information about what happened when Darrell was last seen.

Police say the car they pulled out of the Ohio Friday night had been there for a long time and is in no way connected to this case. Crews plan to return to the river Saturday to resume their search for clues: specifically Darrell's car, which may still be in deep water.

Darrell was last seen at a couple of bars in Ironton nearly a month ago. If you have any information, call the Ironton Police. You can remain anonymous.
