I am wondering if the same equipment that is being used in Ohio at that sex offender's home (Sowell is last name), to see if bodies are under the dirt, could be used in and around the school where Deanie went missing, or in the area of that old school house they investigated last spring.

I'm just wondering if she was killed and buried, and buried so well, that no one has ever been able to find her "grave."

Some day, we will find out the truth.

Police offer $25,000 reward in Deanie Peters case; Forest Hills student disappeared in 1981

KENT COUNTY -- Authorities said today there is a $25,000 reward available for information that leads cold case investigators to the slaying suspect or the body of Deanie Peters, a 14-year-old who vanished 28 years ago.

State Police Detective Sally Wolters, who heads a five-person cold case team trying to solve the teen's baffling disappearance on Feb. 5, 1981, appealed for people with any information on the case to come forward.

Wolters said detectives have learned that Peters, who disappeared from a Forest Hills Central Middle School wrestling practice, was involved in a fight days before she went missing.

Police declined to characterize the nature of the fight, say what day it occurred or who was involved. Wolters would not say if the people involved in the confrontation are considered suspects.

Since reopening the cold case in March 2008, police have interviewed more than 100 suspects, visited seven states and tracked down new leads they generated during the probe.

Wolters said police have ruled out all burial sites that were rumored to be where suspects disposed of Peters' body.

The work included draining a pond on private property, using an excavator behind an old Ionia County schoolhouse and scouring hundreds of acres of land.

"We have done everything we can," Wolters said. "We're hoping the reward will generate interest among those who have chosen to remain uninvolved."

Kent County Sheriff Larry Stelma said the cash, payable upon conviction, was donated by an individual with no ties to the Peters' case
