A couple of fisherman found more than fish early Thursday morning.

According to the Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office, at about 12:45 a.m. Thursday, two fishermen found intestines in the Little Rush Creek in Richland Township. The intestines were found in the creek just off of Miller Siding Road NE, south of Gun Barrel Road NE.

Authorities are unsure if the intestines are animal or human.

The Fairfield County Coroner will have to make the determination.

Knowing that Terri Jo Hamm is still missing, the Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office turned to the Lancaster Police Department, who is handling her case.

“We have a great relationship with Lancaster police a detectives there came out with us worked hand-in-hand with this situation,” said Lt. Tim Voris with the Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office.

Hamm has been missing since January. Her husband Jeffrey has been charged with her murder, but her body has not been recovered.

NBC4 talked with Hamm’s sister in law. She got a message that there might be news in Terri Jo’s case.

“First thing that happened is my stomach flipped,” Nicki Green said.

“We were hoping for days like this we been wanting leads just like when police released the details on three vehicles,” Green said.

She knows this might not be the only time someone calls in a find.

“It’s mushroom season, so if you come across something don’t touch it, call 911 and what police take care of it,” Green said. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
