LAKELAND, Fla. — Investigators are searching a Hillsborough County property in the case of a missing Florida Lottery winner.
Crime scene investigators were seen walking the property Tuesday with metal detectors and shovels. It's owned by the boyfriend of Dorice Moore, who authorities have called a 'person of interest' in the case.
Moore has said she doesn't know where Abraham Shakespeare is, but authorities say she transferred more than $1 million from his bank account into hers. She said the money was a gift.
No charges have been filed.
Officials are releasing little information about the search other than to say investigators will probably be there for several days.
Shakespeare won $31 million in 2006. He was last seen in April.
