Hamilton County Sheriff's Office investigators are searching the last of five properties shared by a missing woman and her husband.

Gail Palmgren, 44, has been missing since April 30. No one has heard from her. She was last seen by her two children after she dropped them off at the couple's Signal Mountain home.

Palmgren and her husband, Matthew Palmgren, share a lake house in Wetumpka, Ala. where investigators are searching. There is an additional vacant home in Palmgren's name they are searching on Lake Jordan in Alabama.

Sheriff Jim Hammond said that, after the last of the property searches are completed, investigators may consider doing another aerial search.

"I'm still of the opinion when the leaves drop, we'll be able to see more," he said.

In June, investigators searched the couple's Signal Mountain residence, which is now listed for sale at $669,000. Authorities also have checked a storage unit in Red Bank as well as a Matthew Palmgren's mother's home.
