Taylor Expected in Court Thursday

Nelson Co., VA - Tuesday marked 17 days since Alexis Murphy, 17, went missing, and there's still no sign of her.

ABC 13 is finding out more about the suspect in this case, Randy Taylor, however.

Randy Taylor still sits in a cell in the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail, but is scheduled to be back in a Nelson County courtroom on Thursday.

Taylor was originally scheduled to appear by video, however just as the case in his arraignment, he will appear in person.

Last week, Taylor's court appointed attorney said the case against his client is "weak" and he hopes the bond hearing will force the prosecution to reveal more of the evidence against Taylor.

Monday, ABC 13 met exclusively with a Nelson County land owner who showed what he calls suspicious tire tracks on his property.

The property is only a few miles away from a convenience store where residents tell me they saw Randy Taylor in the days after Alexis Murphy's disappearance.

Many viewers have been asking via Facebook why investigators haven't searched the area yet.

Investigators do say they plan to search the property, however.

The property is more than 500 acres, though, and investigators say a search that size takes a lot of people and search dogs, plus lots of time to plan.
