Oneida, Scott County (WVLT) - The search continues for a Scott County woman who went missing some two weeks ago as her ex-husband is now facing federal weapons charges.
"I don't have no earthly idea where she's at," Doug Whisnant is denying any knowledge of where his ex-wife jean Johnson is.
Wednesday, a Scott County judge dismissed the felon in possession of a weapon charge against Whisnant.
The dismissal came after District Attorney General John Galloway informed the court of the federal charges which carry a heavier sentence if convicted.
Galloway says the Sheriff's Department and TBI continue their investigation into locating Johnson.
