The search for a crash victim’s missing wife is on hold but an investigation into her whereabouts isn’t.
When asked what would change it into a criminal investigation, he says evidence.
Investigators have been asking people with any information to come forward but so far, Templeton says they haven’t received much.

"It's just one of those weird situations," said Sergeant Jeff Whalen of the La Salle County Sheriff's office.
"We have no idea what happened." Dozens of searchers braved frigid temperatures for a third day Tuesday to scour an area just miles from the couple's home in Ransom.
Information on Tanya Shannon has been entered into a police database for other agencies to see.
As for when a ground search could resume, Templeton says when there has been some snow melt.
The northern Illinois mother of four was last seen leaving a friend's holiday party and was believed to be riding with her husband when their car crashed a short time later as it snowed.
A deputy found the wreck along a well-traveled stretch of highway early Sunday - 41-year-old Dale Shannon was dead behind the wheel and footprints led away from the car.
Two weeks ago, Tanya and her husband Dale attended a Saturday night holiday party in Streator, Ill., dancing and enjoying themselves.
