PUYALLUP, Wash. (ABC 4 News) - About 20 investigators from Utah and the Pierce County Sheriff's Department started searching the home of the husband and father-in-law of Susan Cox Powell.

Police have a strong hunch something inside could break open the Susan Cox Powell case.  Officers will not tell us what they're looking for.

"We believe that we will find it here and that when we do it will also help further the investigation," said Lt. Bill Meritt of the West Valley Police Department. 

West Valley Police removed three computers from Josh's home.
 
"There is probable cause to believe there is evidence inside their home and or their vehicles that will help further this cause," said Sgt. Mike Powell of the West Valley Police Department.

Susan Cox Powell has been missing since 2009, when she disappeared from her West Valley City home.

Her husband Josh sold the family home and moved in with his father Steve about a month after her disappearance.

The investigators included forensic specialists from Utah and Washington, and that Josh and Steve were being "detained" during the search.

A West Valley City Police crime scene processing unit trailer could be seen in front of the home as police executed a search warrant.

There was no initial word as to what police were looking for.
