xx Tracey Gardner-Tetso - March 5, 2005 - DC

Information from AMW website:
A heavy metal band has joined in the efforts to locate a missing Maryland woman. Tracey Gardner-Tetso was on her way to a Motley Crue concert, but she never made it and hasn't been heard from since.

Now, Motley Crue is matching a reward put up by Tracey's employer and Metro Crimestoppers in hopes of generating some information about Tracey's whereabouts. Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue said, "We hope our involvement helps brings more attention to this case, and anyone with information will step forward." Motley Crue will be returning to suburban Washington DC on August 13th as part of their Carnival of Sins Summer Tour. "We hope Tracey will be at that show" said Vince Neil, "we'll be holding a pair of front row tickets for her."


The 33-year-old Rosedale, MD woman was last seen March 6, 2005 before she failed to meet friends at a Motley Crue concert at the MCI center in DC.

Tracey never made it to the concert, and when her friends tried to call her cell phone, it was turned off. On Monday, March 7, Tracey's friend, Christian, who she was supposed to go to the concert with, called her office to see if Tracey had shown up for work. Tracey's supervisor and friend, Monika Barilla, told Christian that Tracey wasn't in yet. Christian told Monika that Tracey had never made it to the concert. "Tracey is a fun loving person. She loved rock-n-roll and Motley Crue was her favorite," Tracey's friend Monika told AMW producers. By Tuesday, March 8, Tracey was still missing and no one had heard from her. Her friends decided to call the police.


Car Of Missing Crue Fan Found
Police immediately questioned Tracey's family and friends. But no one has seen or heard from her since 3:05 on March 6. Then, cops tracked down a small piece of the puzzle. Police say there is a record of Tracey's car passing through the southbound tube of the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel at 7:48 p.m. the night she went missing. Her last outgoing cell phone call was at 3:05 p.m. when she phoned her friend, Christian, who had bought her the Motley Crue tickets for her birthday.

According to officials, Tracey's car was later found in the Glen Burnie area at a local Days Inn. So far, police have few leads as to Tracey's whereabouts and are hoping with national attention, someone might come forward with the clue they're looking for.

TOWSON, Md. -- Two new pieces of information might shed light on the disappearance of a Rosedale woman.

Tracey Gardner-Tetso, 32, did not show up for a Motley Crue concert on March 6 in Washington, D.C., and has remained missing since.
Now, Gardner-Tetso's mother, Kathy Gardner, has cast her suspicion on another family member. Also, Baltimore County police, desperate for new leads, have released to the public some previously secret evidence, WBAL-TV 11 News reporter Noel Tucker reported.

Police released Friday surveillance video of Gardner-Tetso's car, which was abandoned at the time of her disappearance. Tucker said authorities have only now released the video, which was recorded on March 6 at 8 p.m., because they need new leads.

Gardner watched that video Friday for the first time. The video shows someone parking her daughter's Pontiac Trans Am in a Glen Burnie parking lot, but the image is too grainy to identify the person.

"That's definitely the car sitting there," Gardner said.

Complete Coverage:

Images: Police Hope Newly-Released Evidence Will Help Investigation

Police hope someone who was in the parking garage at the time remembers that Trans Am.

"As time goes on, people forget details, forget about the information, and we want this to remain in the public eye at this point," Baltimore County police spokesman Shawn Vinson said.

Woman's Mother Concerned For Son-In-Law

Gardner said her daughter's disappearance has destroyed her family. Dozens of people have searched area landfills for Gardner-Tetso's body in recent weeks, but one family member has remained conspicuously absent, Tucker said.
"Every night is sleepless. ... Dennis knows something, I don't know what, but Dennis knows something," Gardner said in reference to her daughter's husband, Dennis Tetso.

Tucker reported police do not consider Tetso a suspect in his wife's disappearance. Police told 11 News Tetso has not been cooperative with the investigation and has refused to talk to investigators, Tucker said.

Gardner said she and other family members haven't heard from Tetso either.

"To this day, he has not called anybody. Since she disappeared, he has not had any contact with the family. None," she said.

Gardner said her daughter told friends before she disappeared that she was afraid of her husband and was seeking a divorce.

"There was some bizarre behavior that was going on," Gardner said.

Efforts To Find Missing Woman Fall Short

As Gardner prepares for another search for her daughter on Saturday, she hopes Tetso will heed her invitation to help.

"Dennis, this is a personal invite for you to join us tomorrow at 10 o'clock at the Home Depot on Ordnance Road to search for Tracey. You have not been out there to help us look. You say you've have been, but you haven't. This is your wife; come out and help search for her," Gardner said.
WBAL-TV 11 News left messages with Tetso's attorney Friday night, but did not receive a return call. Tetso is not a suspect, and not even a person of interest in the case at the moment.

Authorities describe Gardner-Tetso as white woman who stands 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 130 pounds. She has long blonde hair and blue eyes and was last seen driving her 1996 black Pontiac Trans Am with Maryland license plates LRN 534.

Gardner said she has accepted the thought that her daughter is probably deceased.

"We just hope that we can bring her back to give her a proper burial and get closure for the family," she said.

The reward in the case has grown to $22,000 after the band, Motley Crue, announced it will match an earlier reward of up to $10,000.

Have Information?: If you have any information regarding this case, you should call Baltimore County police by dialing (410) 307-2020.

xx Searchers take break in quest
« Reply #2 on: Jun 3rd, 2005, 11:24pm »

Family and friends who have been searching for a missing Rosedale woman for nearly three months took a break over the holiday weekend.

"We wanted people to be able to spend time with their families," said Rick Gardner, whose daughter, Tracey Leigh Tetso, 33, of the 7800 block of Bluegrass Road, has not been seen since March 6, when she planned to attend a Motley Crue concert in Washington but never showed up.

Her friends and family have met most weekends since April 6 at the Home Depot on Ordnance Road to search the woods and an abandoned landfill in Glen Burnie, and are working on organizing a benefit featuring local rock bands.

The searched area is not far from where Tetso's 1996 black Pontiac Trans Am was found March 17.

The car was found by Anne Arundel County police in the 6600 block of Ritchie Highway.

Gardner said he is grateful for the outpouring of support the family has received from Tetso's friends and co-workers at Aggregate Industries.

But, he said, he understands the searchers sometimes need time off.

"We all see the toll it's taken on all of us," he said.

The search for Tetso has been in the national spotlight thanks to appearances on two recent prime-time television shows.

The case was featured on a brief segment of CBS' "Without a Trace" May 26 and a May 14 airing of Fox's "America's Most Wanted."

Information on her is posted on the FBI's Web site and several other missing persons Web sites and message boards.

The case began receiving national attention when Motley Crue contributed $10,000 toward a reward fund.

Another $10,000 was contributed by the nonprofit Victims' Rights Foundation, and a few hundred dollars was raised at a fundraiser last month at Fuddrucker's restaurant in Columbia.

One of his daughter's friends will host a Home Interiors party, with 50 percent of the proceeds going toward the reward fund, Gardner said.

Despite the exposure, no substantial leads have developed, said police spokesman Shawn Vinson.

The case is being handled as a "missing person, as if foul play has occurred," Officer Vinson said.

Based on information provided by Tetso's friends and family, police believe that she would get in touch with them if she could.

No suspects have been identified, and Tetso's estranged husband, Dennis, has not been named a suspect.

At one time, Dennis Tetso was willing to talk with the media about his wife's disappearance.

Since then, however, "his cooperation has been limited," Vinson said.

Gardner said the family has not heard from him since Tetso's disappearance.

"He hasn't even bothered calling us, to this day," Gardner said. "And he has yet to come out and help us search."

Volunteers will resume the search June 4.

xx Vigil marks four months since woman last seen
« Reply #3 on: Jul 1st, 2005, 05:32am »

Family and friends of Tracey Leigh Tetso will meet July 6 for a candlelight vigil in honor of the missing Rosedale woman.

The event marks the four-month anniversary of Tetso's disappearance.

The 33-year-old Rosedale woman, of the 7800 block of Bluegrass Road, has not been seen since March 6, when she was expected to attend a Motley Crue concert in Washington, D.C., but never showed up.

The vigil will be at 8 p.m. in the Days Inn parking lot in the 6600 block of Gov. Ritchie Highway. The lot was where Tetso's 1996 black Pontiac Trans Am was found March 17.

Friends will supply the candles and will sell T-shirts to help fund the searches by volunteers that have taken place in the area nearly every weekend since April 6.

For information, call Monika Barilla at 410-320-5416.

Estranged spouse absent as others mark woman's March disappeara


07/13/05
By MARY T. ROBBINS



About 50 people gathered last week to mark the four-month anniversary of a Rosedale woman's disappearance.

Dennis Tetso was not one of them.

Family and friends of Tracey Tetso, 33, say they were not surprised when her estranged husband did not attend a July 6 candlelight vigil in Glen Burnie.

He has had no contact with them since she was reported missing March 6, they said, nor has he participated in numerous searches conducted by volunteers.

"I'm at the point where I don't want to hear from him," said Rose Gardner, Tracey Tetso's grandmother.

The 33-year-old concrete company employee, who lived in the 7800 block of Bluegrass Road, was reported missing after failing to show up for a Motley Crue concert in Washington, D.C.

Baltimore County police said July 7 they have not identified any suspects. The case is being treated as a missing person's file with possible foul play, according to police spokesman Bill Toohey.

Family and friends formed a circle of candlelight in the same parking lot where Tracey Tetso's black TransAm was found March 17 in the 6600 block of Gov. Ritchie Highway. The lot is shared by a Days Inn and a bowling alley. Many of the supporters held fliers featuring the blonde woman's photograph.

"It's been four months," Cathy Gardner, mother of the missing woman, said during brief remarks. "There's not a day that goes by that we have not thought of her and keep her in our prayers until the day we bring her home. We will bring her home."

Monika Barilla asked people to remain hopeful about finding her friend. The two worked together at Aggregate Industries in Crofton.

"We are here to let each other know we are not giving up on her," Barilla said. "Keep the hope. We are going to find her. We are going to find her."

Rick Gardner, the Rosedale woman's father, said the only way he has been able to cope with not knowing what happened to his only daughter is by taking a day at a time.

"One day, it will all come to a head. He's a whiny little weasel," he said of his son-in-law.

Meanwhile, Rose Gardner said a part of her still expects her granddaughter to one day reappear.

'I still don't believe it. I think she's going to walk right in," Rose Gardner said. "But I know that is not going to happen. It's just like she went away. It's taken an awful toll on all of us."

When Tracey Tetso began telling her grandmother that she believed her husband was becoming controlling and possessive, Rose Gardner urged her to stay at the older woman's home in Ferndale.

"She told me, 'It's really getting scary,'" Rose Gardner said. "I wish I had made her stay."

Dennis Tetso did not return phone calls seeking comment.

One of the youngest participants at the vigil was only 2 weeks old. Tracey Leigh Lyons was named after Tracey Leigh Tetso, a childhood friend of her mom, Tiffony Lyons.

Tracey and I were very close," the new mother said regarding the baby's name selection.

One member of the audience knew all too well what family and friends are going through.

Darlene Huntsman's 23-year-old sister, Bernadette Stevenson Caruso, was reported missing in Sept. 27, 1986, from Eastpoint Mall and has never been found.

"It's been a long 19 years," she said.

Tracey Tetso is described as white, 5 feet 4, 130 pounds, with long blond hair and blue eyes. She has tattoos of a bird on her back and on her right leg.

Anyone with information about her is asked to call Baltimore County police at 410 -307-2020.

xx Police: No Supects In Case Of Missing MÖTLEY CRÜE
« Reply #5 on: Jul 21st, 2005, 07:37am »

Mary T. Robbins of Maryland's Northeast Booster has issued the following report about a 32-year-old Baltimore County woman who has been missing since March 6 when she failed to meet friends for a MÖTLEY CRÜE concert in Washington:

About 50 people gathered [two weeks ago] to mark the four-month anniversary of a Rosedale woman's disappearance.

Dennis Tetso was not one of them.

Family and friends of Tracey Tetso (photo), 33, say they were not surprised when her estranged husband did not attend a July 6 candlelight vigil in Glen Burnie.

xx Family Of Missing MÖTLEY CRÜE Fan To Meet With Ban
« Reply #6 on: Aug 12th, 2005, 09:57am »

The family of a 32-year-old Baltimore County woman who has been missing since March 6 when she failed to meet friends for a MÖTLEY CRÜE concert in Washington will have a chance to personally thank the members of CRÜE for their help in the search for the woman when they meet with the group Saturday night (August 13) at the Nissan Pavillion in Washington, D.C.

Tracey Gardner-Tetso (photo#1, photo#2) is described as white, 5 feet 4, 130 pounds, with long blond hair and blue eyes. She was last seen driving a 1996 black Pontiac Trans Am, with tinted windows and Maryland tags LRN 534, according to The Baltimore Sun.

Baltimore County police said last month that they have not identified any suspects. The case is being treated as a missing person's file with possible foul play, according to police spokesman Bill Toohey.

MÖTLEY CRÜE in April announced that they would match the $10,000 reward fund being offered for information on the whereabouts of Gardner-Tetso, who was reported missing by her husband. The reward is being offered by the Victims' Rights Foundation of Gaithersburg, Metro Crime Stoppers and Aggregate Industries, which employed Gardner-Tetso as a dispatcher. Anyone with information should call Baltimore County police at 410-307-2020.

Missing woman's case bonds a local crew with a 'Crue'

With the heavy metal band Motely Crüe kicking in $10,000, the reward fund for information about the missing Tracey Tetso, a fan, is now $25,000. Friends and neighbors of the missing woman gather.
Family and friends of a missing Rosedale woman were able to personally thank the rock band that has offered $10,000 toward Tracey Tetso's reward fund.

Tetso's parents and two close friends met with Motley Crue's Tommy Lee and Nikki Six before the band's April 14th concert at the Nissan Pavilion in Bristow, Va.

"They were really sincere; it was cool to come meet them and thank them for their help," said Monika Barilla, a longtime friend of Tetso's who has helped to organize search parties for the missing woman.

Tetso, 33, has been missing since March 6, when she was supposed to attend a Motley Crue concert in Washington and never showed up.

Baltimore County police continue to treat the case as a missing person's file with possible foul play. No suspects have been named, according to police spokesman Bill Toohey.

Her vehicle was found March 17 in the 6600 block of Ritchie Highway in a Glen Burnie parking lot shared by a Day's Inn and a bowling alley.

The band announced in April it would match the $10,000 reward fund being offered for information on the missing woman. The reward is also being offered by the Victims' Rights Foundation of Gaithersburg, Metro Crime Stoppers and Aggregate Industries, Tetso's employer.

The Fox Television Network's "America's Most Wanted" also filmed part of the meeting between Tetso's friends and family with the band and will be airing an update on the case as part of its Aug. 20 episode.

Tetso's family and friends attending the concert donned T-shirts bearing the image of the blonde concrete company dispatcher.

"They said it was not about publicity for them and it was never an issue about money for them," said Laura Smith, another friend of Tetso's who attended the concert. "When they found out she was missing and how much of a fan she was, their main goal was to try to get her as much attention as possible."

After news of the band's donation was released in April, media outlets across the country, from national rock magazines to major metropolitan dailies, picked up on the story.

"Then, boom, the 'runaway bride' happened," Smith said, referring to Georgia resident Jennifer Willbanks, who faked her own disappearance after getting cold feet days before her wedding. "All the media attention went to her. The band said it was very frustrating for them."

Tracey Tetso is described as white, 5 feet 4, 130 pounds, with long blond hair and blue eyes. She has tattoos of a bird on her back and on her right leg.

Anyone with information about her is asked to call Baltimore County police at 410 -307-2020

xx Vigil Held On Anniversary Of Woman's Disappearance
« Reply #9 on: Mar 6th, 2006, 05:01am »

Kimberly Houk

WJZ) GLEN BURNIE A candlelight vigil was held in Anne Arundel County for a White Marsh woman missing for exactly one year on Monday.

Tracey Leigh Tetso, has not had any contact with her family or friends since March 6, 2005.

Tetso's husband reported her missing after she was supposed to attend a Motley Crue concert at the MCI Center in Washington, D.C. But she never arrived at the concert.

One year later, Tetso's friends and family gather together in her memory.

"A part of me, I'm so angry. And the other part I'm like, 'Okay, I need to understand until we do find her,'" Cathy Gardner, Tetso's mother, tells WJZ's Kimberly Houk. "This was a young, vibrant individual--a world ahead of her, looking for the future."

Detectives learned that her car passed through the southbound side of the Harbor Tunnel on March 6th just before 8:00 p.m. Surveillance video outside of a motel in Glen Burnie shows her car pulling into a parking lot. But clues to her whereabouts from that point on have been practically non-existant, and the police still have no answers for Tetso's concerned family.

"I got to the point where I don't even bother calling them anymore," says her father, Rick Gardner.

Despite the lack of clues, her loved ones hope someone will step forward who might know what happened to Tetso.

"She was really outgoing and great to be around. I loved her and somebody took her from me," says Dawn Smith, Tetso's best friend.

Tetso is described as a white female, 32 years old, 5'4", and 130 pounds, with long blonde hair, and blue eyes. She has a tattoo of a bird on her back and another tattoo of a bird on her right leg.

Her car is a 1996 black Pontiac TransAm with dark tinted windows, displaying Maryland tags LRN 534.

If anyone has any information about Tracey Tetso or her vehicle, please call Baltimore County police at 410-307-2020. Up to $25,000 is being offered for information leading to her whereabouts.

By Stephen Kiehl
Sun Reporter


Tracey Leigh Tetso loved fast cars from the moment her father first strapped her car seat into his '69 Corvette. When she could afford her own, she bought a black Pontiac Trans Am - one that rode so low to the ground her grandmother refused to get in.

"She would call and she'd say, 'Grandma, I'm taking you shopping,'" said Rose Smith, 78. "And I'd say, 'Don't bring that car!'"
The car went everywhere else, though. Tracey took it to Ocean City, out on the town in Baltimore and to rock concerts in Washington. That's where she was supposed to be on March 6, 2005 - at the Motley Crue show at the MCI Center. The tickets were a present for her 33rd birthday, two weeks away.

She never made it to the show. The Trans Am was later found in the parking lot of a Glen Burnie Days Inn. Tracey never was.

A year later, after a nationally publicized search, the disappearance of Tracey Leigh Tetso remains a mystery. The case has haunted those who loved her and has torn apart the relationship between Tracey's parents and her husband, Dennis Tetso. They no longer speak to each other, and last month her parents filed in court a petition to gain custody of her house and car.

At a recent candlelight vigil in Tracey's memory, about 40 friends and family members fought back tears in a biting wind. Later that night, her stepmother - who had raised Tracey since she was 10 - suffered a heart attack, which her family believes was induced by stress.

In an interview before she entered the hospital, Cathy Gardner said she was certain she would find Tracey, one way or another.

"I talk to her every day. I can feel her," she said. "And I tell her I'm not going to give up. Everybody else can, Tracey, but I will not give up and I will bring you home. Sooner or later, before I close my eyes, I will bring you home."


Daddy's little girl
Tracey was always close to her dad, Rick Gardner. He said he took her everywhere in his blue Corvette, and she loved to ride along. He had gained full custody of Tracey when she was 13 months old, after divorcing her mother, Diane Stephens.

At the time, Gardner was a Marine at Camp Lejeune, N.C., so he took Tracey to live with his parents in Ferndale. He moved there a few years later.

When Tracey was 9, he took her along on his first date with his future wife, whom he had met while shopping at her parents' general store in Severn. He took her and Tracey to a drive-in movie theater.

"I thought, 'Oh, this is really good,'" Cathy Gardner said, recalling her surprise that Tracey went along on the date. But it worked. Cathy and Rick married a year later. The family went on vacations to Ocean City and Assateague Island, and Tracey modeled her wardrobe and hairstyle after her new stepmother's.

They lived in Pasadena, and Tracey started attending Northeast High School in 1986. She got into the heavy metal rock bands popular at the time - including Ozzy Osbourne, Motley Crue and Pantera - and played the music so loud that her parents bought headphones for her. She would walk around the house bopping her head to the angry beat.

At Northeast, Tracey fell in with a bad crowd, her parents said. She started using alcohol and drugs. Rick Gardner remembers one boy who showed up at the house to take her on a date: "His hair was down to his butt, and he had earrings all around and what looked like a bone in his nose. I slammed the door in his face."

The next time the boy came by, Tracey made him wait outside.

Rick and Cathy Gardner decided to move from Pasadena to Glen Burnie to get their daughter away from that crowd. They enrolled her at the Kiva House shelter in Arnold, a place for teenagers with substance-abuse problems to straighten out their lives.

Tracey pulled herself together, and after she completed the program and earned her high school degree, the Kiva director asked her to return as a counselor. Soon, she was taking the teens on day trips to places like Ocean City.

"She was really good with the kids there," said Laura Pryor, who became Tracey's friend when they both worked at Kiva. "She was like a big kid at heart. She would goof around with them like she was one of them, but she was still grounded as an adult."

You could find her on the infield at the Preakness every spring and at every Motley Crue concert in Baltimore or Washington. She loved Secrets and the Bearded Clam in Ocean City. She already had two dogs, but when she found a German shepherd abandoned in a parking lot, she rescued him and called him Rusty.

xx Case Of Missing Md. Woman To Air On CBS Drama
« Reply #12 on: Jul 31st, 2006, 12:51pm »

The case of a missing Maryland woman that's already received national attention when it was featured on "America's Most Wanted" will now be aired on the CBS drama "Without A Trace" Sunday night.

Thirty-two-year-old Tracey Gardner-Tetso was last seen March 6th, 2005. Her car was spotted eleven days later at a Days Inn parking lot in Glen Burnie.

"Detectives have exhausted all possible leads, her husband has stopped returning all phone calls and perhaps with this attention someone will remember something," Baltimore County Police spokesman Bill Toohey told WJZ's Jessica Kartalija.

Tetso's husband reported her missing after she was supposed to attend a Motley Crue concert at the MCI Center in Washington, D.C. She never arrived at the concert.

Detectives learned that her car passed through the southbound side of the Harbor Tunnel on March 6th just before 8:00 p-m.

Clues to her whereabouts from that point on have been practically non-existant, and the police still have no answers for Tetso's concerned family.

Investigators hope the airing of "Without A Trace" will spur someone to come forward with information regarding Tetso's disappearance.

"I woke up in the morning and she wasn't there, I thought she stayed at a friend's house. You just don't disappear, there's no way, you just don't disappear," Dennis Tetso, Tracey's husband said.

Despite the lack of clues, her loved ones hope someone will step forward who might know what happened to Tetso.

"She was really outgoing and great to be around. I loved her and somebody took her from me," says Dawn Smith, Tetso's best friend.

Tetso is described as a white female, 32 years old, 5'4", and 130 pounds, with long blonde hair, and blue eyes. She has a tattoo of a bird on her back and another tattoo of a bird on her right leg.

Her car is a 1996 black Pontiac TransAm with dark tinted windows, displaying Maryland tags LRN 534.

"I made her a promise from the beginning that I would never stop searching Until we found her, and I will keep my promise. We will not stop until we bring her home," Tetso's mother, Cathy Gardner, said.

If anyone has any information about Tracey Tetso or her vehicle, please call Baltimore County police at 410-307-2020. Up to $25,000 is being offered for information leading to her whereabouts.

it is such a shame that you want the whole world to know what you know about the case but the Baltimore County Police will not let the media mention that the husband has not helped in the searches, fundraising, posting of fliers...etc. They want to keep showing old film footage of him with those big fake horsetears asking Tracey just to call someone when he's the one who knows there are no phones in heaven. There is so much evidence but no body. We just want Tracey home where she belongs and then the rest will fall into place.
