Cullman County investigators are excavating a front porch in Vinemont in connection with the missing person's case of 28-year-old Tabitha Leanne Franklin, who disappeared in 2009.
Friday marks day two of the investigation at a property located on County Road 1136.
After a three-month-long investigation, deputies received new information in the case and obtained a search warrant for the property.
Sheriff Mike Rainey said there are no suspects at this time, but the man who lived on the property, Keith Floyd, was arrested on drug charges Thursday.
The excavation process could take days.
