Joyce Crider went missing October 27th, 2002.  The last person to see her died Sunday.  Joyce's ex-husband,Bill Crider, died in a car crash in Floyd County. 

The last night anybody saw Joyce, she told a friend she was going to speak to Bill Crider.  The next day she was supposed to give a deposition for their divorce.

Bill died when his car went off a Floyd County highway, and rolled over.  The police say Crider is not a suspect, or person of interest in the death of Joyce Crider.  Her mother disagrees.

"Well he is, or was.  He has always been a person of interest," said Joan Gaines, Joyce's Mother.

Gaines is not sad Bill died.

"I'm glad he's dead.  No matter how many things he's been found guilty and not guilty of, he is a career criminal.  That's what I think of Bill Crider," said Gaines.

Police declared Joyce dead in 2009.  They never found her body.  Police hope talking about the case brings in more information.

"If they have a lead, if there's something they heard, something they think they may know, anything that could help that family and help us in locating Joyce Crider, we would greatly appreciate that," said Sgt. Pete Ford, Lexington Police.

Crider's Mom says being able to visit a grave would mean a lot to her.

"I know people know something, yes, and I would hope that they would have enough compassion without the threat of Bill Crider doing anything to them, and give me closure, so I can bury my daughter," said Gaines. 

The Police say the case is open, and they will follow any lead they get.  The police want to focus on finding Joyce's body, and not how, or why she disappeared.
