Neighbors tell Fox 8 that police were at Hudson's home last week, searching and taking pictures. Search warrants filed with Mansfield Municipal Court show detectives were searching for Hudson's body and any evidence pertaining to the crime of kidnapping and abduction.

"It's scary," said one woman who lives near the home.

The woman said that Hudson had several cats and was always caring for animals.

There were a couple of cats near her home Tuesday.
