Dubuque police have been searching for a missing woman for the past 15 years. Police say 20-year-old Crystal Arensdorf disappeared in the early morning hours of July 4th, 2001.

She was at a bar in downtown Dubuque, looking for a ride across the river to East Dubuque.

Dubuque police say they're still receiving tips and information about the case, but so far, no big breaks.

"It's never not had an investigator assigned to it but as time has passed, as you'd expect, the leads become more sporadic," Lieutenant Scott Baxter said.

In the past few years, police say they've received enough information to conduct several searchers for Arensdorf.
