Peninsula -- Authorities say few clues have been found in an extensive search launched for a 30-year-old Eastlake woman in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

Hillary K. Sharma was reported missing by Eastlake Police Aug. 21, a few hours before her car was found by a park ranger at the Boston Store Visitor Center on Boston Mills Road, according to Jennie Vasarhelyi, a CVNP spokesperson.

The search, being led by a joint incident command including the National Park Service, Valley Fire District and Brecksville Fire Department, has utilized ground teams with search dogs, horse patrol, boats on the Cuyahoga River, a helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft, Vasarhelyi said.

"The search has located personal items belonging to Sharma in a remote area of the park," according to a statement released by Vasarhelyi.

The items were found Aug. 22, Vasarhelyi added.

On Aug. 24 the parks asked for help from "experienced river paddlers" to report any out-of-the-ordinary items seen along the river between the Village of Boston and Station Road in Brecksville.

Sharma is 5'3" and 120 pounds with brown hair and eyes.

Officials ask that anyone with information on Sharma call the National Parks Service at 440-546-5945.
