CLEVELAND, Ohio – A committee overseeing plans to build a new Cuyahoga County jail is narrowing a list of about two dozen potential locations, but before moving forward with any of them the county is conducting one more search.
The Justice Center Executive Steering Committee, with the help of a real estate company, has already ranked the viability of 28 locations for the new facility, but “we want to make sure there’s nothing else out there that’s better,” said Jeff Appelbaum, an attorney and project manager leading the committee.
The Department of Public Works is now giving Greater Cleveland property owners an opportunity to pitch their sites as the “future home of the Cuyahoga County Corrections Campus,” according to the request for proposal.
The 12-member committee did not ask for the expanded search and Appelbaum declined to say who did. But he stressed that the goal is to make sure

BUTLER COUNTY, Ohio (WXIX) – A tip in a decade-old missing person case led to the search of a barn off Hine Road in Ross Township which came up empty.
Ross Township Police Chief Burton Roberts says authorities were looking for the remains of 28-year-old William “Billy” DiSilvestro, who disappeared in February 2011.
The tip came from people who knew the missing man, according to DiSilvestro’s mother.
A person who is staying at the property where the barn is located gave police “very detailed information,” including a description of the clothes DiSilvestro was wearing when he went missing, Chief Roberts explained.
The person even claimed there were skeletal remains inside the barn.
A search warrant for the property was then signed and executed.
Several agencies searched and dug in the barn but no human remains were found, Chief Roberts said.
“We went about 8′ deep throughout that entire barn
