I hope Lutrica is found safe. Why has it taken a month for the public to find out that she is missing? The time to start looking for a missing person is the first 24-48 hours.

I was just thinking the same thing Kim. Did the family not report her missing? Did the police not release the information for some reason? What happened there?

I don't know much about this yet but I'm going to see what I can find.

Denise Hart went missing from Schenectady and it took 3 weeks for the public to find out. She was found, dismembered, in a garbage bag in Menands. I haven't heard if they found out who killed her yet.

Unbelievable isn't it?! They want the publics help which is good but the time to let people know is right after it happened. The first 24-48 hours are the most important. I'm sure the SPD have been investigating but the public needs to be informed. Getting her face out there asap would have been ideal.

I haven't heard anything come from her death or the man that was found in the river in Troy. Have all Law Enforcement agencies "left the building"?

I hope they are able to find your sister safe and sound. It would have been nice to know about this earlier so people could have been aware and have an eye out.

Wow, unbelievable! What is the matter with the police these days? Did they NOT think this was an important matter? I would have been calling the TV stations and screaming it from the rooftops!

Do you have any added information to give us sister? The report didn't give much to go on.

I haven't heard anything on Shelton Grant either. It sure makes you wonder what is going on in the Capital District.

I sent an email to Al Roney on Lutrica, maybe he'll talk about it on his show.

It is possible that she just wanted/needed to get away for a while. I'm sure all of that was looked into. My concern is due to the fact that more and more people from this area are disappearing.

It doesn't matter if she was "hanging out", or not they should have informed the public. Not blaming the family but the should have called the TV stations themselves. I have learned (with Josh's disappearance) that the family has to do most of the work themselves and that includes informing the media themselves. You might try contacting the Lyals if they don't contact you first. They are a wonderful family who really got Josh's family on the right track to getting media and public attention. I hope she just got a little overwhelmed with 2 kids and is "hanging out" somewhere. I hope you find her safe and sound. My prayers are with you and the family at this difficult time.

I will send emails to the national media as I have for others in the past. Please let me know any additional information you would like included, there isn't a lot in the articles that I have read today.
