The Vermont State Police is asking for the public’s help in solving a string of 26 missing persons cases, the oldest of which dates to 1971.
Vermont State Police commander Colonel James Baker says troopers regularly get reports of missing people. Most are solved, but some are suspicious.
And now the state police are tracking the closes more closely.
One example is the 2004 case of Brianna Maitland, who was 17 when she disappeared in Montgomery after getting off work at a local inn. Her car was found, although she hasn’t been seen since.
The state police Web site includes 16 profiles of missing people.
