Helicopter, K9 search for Chelsea Bruck

FLAT ROCK, Mich. –

On Monday morning the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department, with help from the Michigan State Police, continued looking for clues to where Chelsea Bruck may be.

Bruck, 22, disappeared after a Halloween party in October 2014. She was wearing a Poison Ivy costume; a costume just like it was found near an abandoned building in Flat Rock on Sunday.

A state police helicopter and K9 team spent hours searching the area on Monday. Police did not say if anything else was found, but did say that search was just one part of their investigation. So far, they have followed up on 650 tips, some of which led to them utilize dive teams to search.

Meanwhile, residents and volunteers started lining the streets, hoping to help.

“We were coming out here to see if they’d let us help, just to see what we could do,” said Jessica Derry.

One man found a cellphone that was turned into police, and a volunteer search crew found what could have been another part of her costume.

Unfortunately, detectives said it was not.

“This case has gone on way too long,” said searcher Dawn Nartker. “This is a small community and it’s important to all of us.”

DNA testing will determine if the costume found is actually Bruck’s, but the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department cautions that although Monday’s search was extensive, it does not necessarily mean they are close to finding Chelsea.

Chelsea’s sister, Kassie Bruck, said after nearly 6 months they’re extremely grateful investigators are still working as hard as they are.

“We were afraid they would stop looking months ago,” Kassie said. “So actually the fact that we’re at 5 ½ months and still having these searches and (they’re) going on leads, it’s not a concern that they’ll stop.”

Despite that, nearly 6 months after her disappearance, Chelsea’s family just wants an answer.

“Easter was very hard,” said Kassie. “I was frustrated. You get angry, but today I’m a little more positive and I’m feeling a little better about the situation. It changes every day.”

'Gotham': What to Read Over the Holiday Hiatus

Gotham might be off the air until Jan. 5, but devotees of the Fox series don’t have to find themselves bereft of James Gordon, Renee Montoya or Selina Kyle until then. With more than 75 years of Batman comic book material to draw on, The Hollywood Reporter has come up with a list of recommended reading for you to spend the next few weeks digging through, with enough Falcone crime family and GCPD drama to tide you over until the new year.

Batman: Earth One

In many ways the motherlode when it comes to inspiration for the show, Batman: Earth One not only features a badass Alfred Pennyworth that Sean Pertwee would be proud of, but it also centers around the growing friendship between Jim Gordon, newly arrived in Gotham City, and Harvey Bullock, who settled into corrupt, slovenly ways some time ago. As the title suggests, Batman is in here as well, but otherwise this is pretty close to Gotham as you see it on a weekly basis.

Available in digital and print format.

Batman: The Long Halloween

For those who enjoy the crime family element of the series, this year-long story (written by Jeph Loeb, current head of Marvel Studios’ TV division) should be a destination. It takes place early in Batman’s career, when the Dark Knight works with Gordon and a pre-Two-Face Harvey Dent to prevent a crime war between the Maroni and Falcone families. Featuring a who’s-who of Bat bad guys — including Scarecrow, Poison Ivy and the Joker — this might offer some closure if you’ve been waiting for all-out crime family showdown on the show.

Available in digital and print format; also available as Batman: The Long Halloween Nos. 1-13 digitally.

Gotham Central Book 1: In the Line of Duty

If the police procedural aspect of the show is what turns your crank, then the entire Gotham Central series is a must for you, starting with In the Line of Duty. The series centers around two shifts in the Gotham City Police Department, with the show’s Bullock, Montoya and Allen playing substantial roles as the cops — nowhere near as corrupt as the ones in the show — and dealing with cases from the everyday to the super-powered. Think Law & Order but with costumed perps, and you’re halfway there. It’s a wonderful series, and highly recommended.

Available in digital and print format; also available as Gotham Central Nos. 1-10 digitally.

Catwoman Vol. 2: No Easy Way Down

While the childhood of Selina Kyle is one that’s been left relatively unexplored in the comic books, this collection of Ed Brubaker’s career-defining run on the character offers up enough drama to fulfill the expectations of any Selina fan from the show. As another plus, this collection sees her up against Roman Sionis, aka Black Mask, from the show’s “The Mask” episode.

Available in digital and print format; also available as Catwoman (2002-2008) Nos. 10-24 and Catwoman Secret Files No. 1 digitally.

Gotham Academy

A wild card choice, this current comic series is a young adult-focused, set in a prep school (partly funded by Bruce Wayne) that centers on a group of students and their potentially haunted surroundings. Beyond just being a good read, what might make this worthwhile for Gotham fans is the fact that the series is increasingly delving into the background of the Cobblepot family, suggesting that they have roots that go back to the very beginning of Gotham City itself. Who knew that Oswald’s family had such social standing…?

Available in digital and print format.

A young woman who vanished after an early Halloween party last weekend was last seen in a parking lot with a man who has a black moustache and was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, police said.

Chelsea Ellen Bruck was last seen leaving the party between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m. Sunday while dressed as the Batman character Poison Ivy.

Police in Monroe County, which is located in southeast Michigan, have issued a missing persons poster showing the normally blonde 22-year-old wearing her costume, which consisted of a top made of ivy leaves and a black wig that appeared red at the ends.

The sheriff’s office has also released a sketch of a man that they say was last seen with Bruck near where cars were parked outside of the party. The man was believed to have dark hair, a thin mustache and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.

When Celebrities Dress Up For Halloween: Kim Kardashian's Poison Ivy, Heidi Klum's Old Lady and other Costumes

Halloween is the time not only for trick or treating but an opportunity to play dress up and let your imagination run wild.

And even more so than us mere mortals, celebrities are known for forking out thousands of pounds to guarantee that they have the killer Halloween costume for that exclusive party.

Remember Kim Kardashian’s Poison Ivy costume in 2011 or last year when Heidi Klum morphed herself into an old lady with the help of prosthetics for her annual Halloween bash?

Feeling inspired yet?

Well just in case, IBTimes UK has complied a picture gallery of some of the best Halloween costumes to come out of celebsville.

Fergie and Josh Duhamel

In 2013 the pop star and her actor hubby traded in their red-carpet glam for a spookier look. Addams Family anybody?

Parenthood has finally taken its tole on Fergie and Josh Duhamel.Twitter

Matt Lauer

We thought that nobody could so that famous Baywatch run better than Pamela Anderson until NBC’s Matt Lauer decided to dress up like her on the Today show.

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian goes all out when she does Halloween, so it’s no surprise that her Poison Ivy costume went down a treat with fans. She defiantly brought some sex appeal to her role.

Miley Cyrus

Child star-turned-twerking queen Miley Cyrus was totally committed for her Lil Kim costume. Just look at the nipple pastie.

Iggy Azalea

Rapper Iggy Azalea fully embodied Cruella De Vil when she dressed up. The hair, the outfit, the lips. Luckily no Dalmatians were harmed in the making of this costume.

Heidi Klum and Seal

Before their split, Heidi Klum and Seal were the King and Queen of Halloween. They were unrecognisable when they dressed up as apes for their annual bash in 2011. Not only were their costumes impressive but they were scarily realistic. They even had monkey feet and hands to finish off their look!

By 2013, Klum was free and single and decided to go as an old lady. Did their marriage age her that much?

And finally…

Prince Harry

Although this technically wasn’t a Halloween costume, it was for a fancy dress party. Prince Harry learned a lesson in what not to dress up as when you are British royalty when he decided to go as a Nazi to a bash in 2005. As you would expect the controversial outfit made headlines across the globe.

Learn from his mistakes!

Julianne Hough's DWTS Photo Diary: See Her Scary-Sexy Halloween Look

Dancing With the Stars judge Julianne Hough wanted to have a Halloween look so gorgeous, it was scary — and she definitely succeeded this week, thanks to her emerald-green Poison Ivy-inspired ensemble. Below, read on for the scoop on how she achieved her elegantly evil look (and get a peek at her adorable puppy, who makes a return appearance this week!).

“We loved this Alberta Ferreti dress and have been waiting for the perfect moment to wear it; the Halloween theme meant that we needed something a little richer and I didn’t want to go down the obvious black route,” Hough tells PEOPLE. “[Stylist] Anita [Patrickson] and I were inspired the fabulous Poison Ivy character but we had to rein it in a little so as not to get too literal. The leaves Riawna [Capri, her hairstylist] added to my hair were minimal enough to feel clean, chic and fashion-y, but outside the box enough to add a little character to my look.”

Says Patrickson of pulling together Hough’s Halloween look, “The biggest challenge was keeping her look fashion forward and not too costume-y. It all came together last minute, actually, with Julianne’s genius suggestion of adding something cool into her hair. Within 5 minutes we had dragged out my secret box of tricks full of flowers and leaves and ‘Poison Ivy à la Hough’ was born. The result was a super sexy, very elegant and glamorous ensemble.”

Capri loved the chance to have a little fun (without going too far, of course!). “Adding in some leaves to her hair was the best part! It’s not everyday you can throw beautiful green leaves in your hair and have it look awesome,” she says. Hough’s reaction to the finished look? “Yup, that’s it! Perfection!”

Makeup artist Marianna Elias played up the sexy-villainess look with extra shimmer. “Julianne wanted to add a sparkle and a special deep green hue to the eye look,” she says. “I end up making it by scraping two different pressed eyeshadows into a loose form and mixing them with a warm (also loose) gold glitter. I added the mixture on her eyes over a shimmery cream shadow. That was the most fun part!”

All three members of the glam squad stress that the key to pulling off such a bold look is to enjoy yourself while doing it. “Mix different hues of green, add glitter! No fear!” advises Ellis. Capri says, “There isn’t a better time than Halloween! to have a blast.” And finally, Patrickson shares: “My greatest sadness is when people are afraid to try something for fear of making a fashion faux pas — fashion is supposed to be wild and fun!”
