xx Father Presses Search for Daughter 9-20-04
« Reply #1 on: Sep 24th, 2004, 09:31am »

EAST FRANKLIN, Vt. -- Six months have come and gone since Brianna Maitland, 17, disappeared in Vermont's Franklin County. She hasn't been seen since she left work in Montgomery in March, but her family is still hoping she'll come home soon.

Brianna's father, Bruce Maitland, said he's found that time does not bring healing."

I've found it's the other way. It's actually getting harder and harder," Maitland said. "The hardest thing is the change of seasons, rather than the date, for me. This is the first real day of fall weather and there is another season that's gone by without her and that's very difficult.

River deep and mountain high
Written by Ethan Dezotelle

Thursday, 16 September 2004
Hers is a face we have grown all too familiar with over the past half year. Her soft smile is as recognizable as that of any relative or friend. Her gentle eyes suggest that even though many of us have never met her, she would likely be counted among our friends if we get the chance to know her.
She stares back at us from the windows of local restaurants, the sides of telephone poles and the cluttered jumble of community bulletin boards. She shows up in towns around northern Vermont and well beyond. She is everywhere at once, and yet we cannot find her.
She is Brianna Maitland, and come Sunday, she will have been missing for six months.
Her family, her friends and countless complete strangers have searched the riverbanks of Franklin County, trekked into the remotest areas of Montgomery’s Gibou and have wandered far and wide, looking for her. A lot of territory has been covered in six months, yet in many ways, it feels as though the search for Bri – a nickname many have taken to calling her – is no further along than it was when her abandoned car was found driven into a house in Montgomery on that cold March morning.
Bri’s disappearance shook us from the complacency of late winter and woke us up to a shared nightmare: northwest Vermont is not a quiet, little hamlet tucked away from the rest of the world. We are part of that world. And it is a world that can feel very big, very lonely and very scary.

First and foremost, I would like to say to carrie's family and friends that my heart goes out to you. I would have never understood the pain that you are feeling until this past march when my neice went missing. Brianna will be 18 this Friday, we intend to celebrate Brianna and all she stands for. I am hoping that someone who knows where she is, will see how much we love and miss her and break their silence. This waiting and searching is so hard. Thanks for visiting Bri's website, for now it's all we have, and it means alot to have people post their thoughts and wishes.

xx Picking Up the Ball - Improving Handling of...
« Reply #5 on: Oct 8th, 2004, 07:19am »

FRANKLIN-6: District Representative Norman McAllister has known Brianna Maitland since she was a little girl. He was as shocked as anybody when word got out last March that the 17-year-old had disappeared.
Six months later, he is equally shocked by what he considers a shortcoming in the way the Vermont State Police have handled the case.
“My feeling is they kind of dropped the ball,” McAllister said this week regarding the case. “Brianna’s parents are feeling like they got left out. I don’t feel the state police are trained to handle missing people all that well. They seemed hesitant to bring in the FBI and things like that.”
As he, along with fellow incumbent Albert Perry, seeks another term as one of his district’s two Legislative representatives, McAllister intends to begin discussions at the community level and follow up on those discussions in Montpelier come January.
In fact, the legislator said that is a “high priority” right now.
“We need to get together and figure out what we’re going to do,” McAllister said of the discussions he hopes to have over the coming weeks. “It’s time citizens get together and say, ‘We’ve had enough.’ This is something that can’t be left up to the police.”
While looking for answers on that front, McAllister is also eager to work toward a solution for the big issue this election season: health care.
“Health care, the cost of it, is always an issue,” he said. “Most people want to see the cost controlled, but they don’t want to be taxed for it. I know a single payer system is something being bandied about by (gubernatorial candidate Peter) Clavelle and (lieutenant governor candidate Cheryl) Rivers. Even (lieutenant governor candidate Steve) Hingtgen is big on universal health care.
“That comes with a big cost. Forcing small businesses to offer health care would be the last straw for a lot of them.”
McAllister said while he has his suspicions that such a system is not the way to go, he is willing to listen to anybody who has ideas.
He does know one thing for certain, though, when it comes to health care. He doesn’t have the answer.
“No. I don’t have that,” he said. “If I had that, I’d be running for Governor or President

xx False leads haunt parents in search for daughter
« Reply #6 on: Nov 22nd, 2004, 06:39am »

EAST FRANKLIN, Vt. It's been eight months now since Brianna Maitland failed to make it home to East Franklin after she left her job at an area restaurant.

And it's been a time of false leads, dashed hopes and anguish for her parents, Bruce and Kellie Maitland.

Police say they have no solid leads on what happened to the then 17-year-old girl, who vanished March 19.

Her parents say one false lead had their daughter working at a strip club in Boston. They found a young woman there who bore a striking resemblance to Brianna, but it wasn't her.

Cars, cabin now focus of search for Edith Meyer
By STEPHEN SEITZ
Union Leader Correspondent

GOSHEN — Two cars seized by police may contain clues to the disappearance of Edith "Pen" Meyer, who disappeared from her home in Goshen last week.

One car was found in Claremont, and the other car was taken from a Lempster resident, police said. No further information was released about the vehicles.

Investigators also spent much of the day searching a cabin in that town.

Despite this, investigators say that the 55-year-old woman's disappearance is still considered "unusual."

"We won't consider this to be suspicious unless we have evidence of foul play," said Senior Assistant Attorney General Will Delker. "On Monday, we seized a car based on following up a tip, and the car will be searched."

The car does not belong to Meyer, Delker said; her vehicle is still in its place in her garage.

"The house looks like somebody just left," Delker said. "What it looks like is that she either walked out or somebody picked her up."

Meyer was last seen on the evening of Feb. 22 when some friends were visiting. She was supposed to meet someone the next morning. An avid snowshoer who rarely left the house without her dog, that friend was surprised to find both snowshoes and spaniel, but not Meyer. He alerted police, who have been searching ever since. An extensive search has eliminated the woods around her home on Gunnison Lake.

Many of the usual investigative avenues turned up dry. "She didn't have a cell phone," Delker said. "I don't know if she had a computer. We looked at her financial records and her credit cards, and there's no activity after her disappearance."

More personal details are emerging about Meyer's background. According to court documents, her brief second marriage ended last September in Sullivan Superior Court.

Meyer married Newbury resident Richard G. Rankin, now 65, in Goshen on Dec. 29, 2001. Meyer moved to New Hampshire in 1978, Rankin in 1994. The pair separated on May 18, 2004, and filed a joint petition for divorce on Aug. 12. The couple divided their possessions and finances, and the divorce was granted on Sept. 15. According to the decree, this was Rankin's second marriage and Meyer's third.

Attempts to contact Rankin were unsuccessful yesterday.

The couple had no children, though Meyer has three, two of whom, authorities said, live in New Hampshire. In divorce records in the space for her work number, the form reads "n/a" (not applicable). There were no court cases pending against either party when the divorce went through, or since. No domestic violence or restraining orders were on file at Newport district court.

Meyer was active in preservation causes, sold her weaving at area craft fairs, and served as membership director for the Norwich Farmers' Market in Vermont.

Despite this, according to Suzie Wallis, the market's president, no one there seemed to know her very well. Wallis said the matter of Meyer's disappearance was raised at the organization's board meeting Monday night.

"The members found the news sad and upsetting," said Wallis, "and they're sad that she's still missing. I've known her for a very long time, but only through the market, not socially. We knew that she had been married and divorced, and was divorced again. Otherwise, we have very little information."

New Hampshire authorities said the search is still being conducted in New Hampshire.

A number of women in New Hampshire have been missing or murdered in mysterious circumstances in recent years:


Maura Murray, a nursing student at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, crashed her car on Route 112 in Swiftwater in February 2004, walked into the woods, and disappeared, leaving no trace.

Brianna Maitland, also a U-Mass student, vanished after leaving the restaurant where she worked in Montgomery, Vt. the following month.

Louise Chaput, of Sherbrooke, Quebec, was stabbed to death while hiking in Pinkham Notch in November 2001.

Tina and Bethany Sinclair, residents of West Chesterfield, left their home one night in February 2001, and haven't been heard of since. However, in that case, authorities have identified a probable suspect in the disappearance of the mother and daughter.
The publicity surrounding the current case has brought plenty of tips from the public.

"A lot of people have been very helpful," said Maj. Barry Hunter of the state police Major Crime Unit. "I only wish we could ask for something specific, but we'll take as much information as we can get."

Investigators are based at the Goshen Police Department, and police encourage anyone with information to drop in. A toll-free number, 1-800-852-3411, has been set up at state police headquarters for callers who have tips. The public also may call the state police Troop C barracks in Keene at 358-3333.

xx Law enforcement to meet one year after woman's dis
« Reply #9 on: Mar 18th, 2005, 05:33am »

ST. ALBANS, Vt. Law enforcement officials from Vermont and the region, including Canada, are expected to gather in Saint Albans tomorrow for a status report on the search for a missing woman.

Brianna Maitland of Franklin disappeared a year ago this Saturday after finishing her shift at the Black Lantern Inn in Montgomery.

No sign of Maitland, who was 17 when she disappeared, has been found in the year since she went missing.

Authorities have conducted 136 interviews, issued six subpoenas for telephone records, conducted 16 rounds of sworn testimony by people who have known Maitland and taken numerous other steps.

Vermont State Police in Saint Albans are renewing their call for the public's help in solving the case.

One year gone
Mother of missing teen holding on to hope, memories
Written by Ethan Dezotelle
Thursday, 17 March 2005


FRANKLIN/MONTGOMERY: Not too long ago, Bruce and Kellie Maitland’s dog got into their daughter’s bedroom and jumped on the bed. In the commotion, he kicked back the blankets, giving the bed a slept-in look.
As Kellie Maitland walked past the bedroom door and glanced in, it was like the past year had never happened. For a fleeting moment, her daughter, Brianna, was home and had just thrown the covers back and got out of bed. In that split second, Kellie’s world felt something it hadn’t in a long, long time. It felt normal.


“It was so quick, but it felt like she was there in the house with me, like she had just woken up and gotten out of bed,” Kellie said Tuesday. “But that feeling didn’t last long, and I was back with everything that’s happened.”
One year ago this coming Saturday, March 19, the familiar, secure world occupied by Kellie and her family was turned upside down. After finishing work at the Black Lantern Restaurant in Montgomery, 17-year-old Brianna Maitland got in her car and headed out. That was at around 11:20 p.m. She has not been seen or heard from since.
Her car was found on the outskirts of Montgomery, backed into an abandoned house on Route 118. Found in the car was her paycheck, migraine medication and contact lenses. Not found was any clear evidence that could lead her family or the Vermont State Police to where she ended up. In the nearly 365 days that have followed, Kellie and Bruce Maitland have discovered plenty of places where their daughter isn’t, and they continue a desperate search for where she is.
That search has taken them deep into the Gibou, a heavily-wooded area of Montgomery; along the banks of the Missisquoi River; to New York City and even onto the nation’s television screens, having recently been on an episode of the Montel Williams Show, which is set for broadcast sometime in coming weeks. It’s a search that has taken virtually everything these parents have to give, but what Kellie has found is that when it comes to a child, you can never really give enough.
‘Never enough’
“It’s not enough,” she said. “It’s never enough, not until we find her. Give me more to do... When Brianna first disappeared, we just blitzed St. Albans and other towns with posters. Then it was the search. Then I had different groups in the party scene looking and listening for me.”
At the same time, Kellie’s husband was searching high and low, making connections and traveling wherever a lead took him. After almost a year of this, though, the couple decided it was time for a change.
Kellie recently left her job at a local hardware store to devote more of her time to Brianna’s disappearance, she said, while Bruce will spend more time working as an independent forester.
“When I was working, I’d come home at night and Bruce would fill me in on what happened that day, what leads there were, things he had heard,” Kellie said. “Now I’ll be the one doing that for him as he works. But even when you’re working, you’re thinking about it. It’s hard not to.”
The only
one who knows’
The disappearance of a child has a massive impact on a family. It begins with the missing child, and the ripple effect goes from there. Daily patterns change. The world is viewed differently by all involved. Tensions exist that were never there before.
It’s no different for the Maitlands, and as they have shared the pain of the past year, they have found a deep connection.
“We’re on the same team. No one can understand something like this like your partner can. He’s the only one who knows besides me what it’s like to lose our daughter,” Kellie said. “There is only one Brianna, and we have both lost her.”
She said the couple takes a degree of comfort in sharing their pain on common ground, but that same pain is “a constant, dark, rain cloud” that hangs over them.
“There are things you used to do as a couple – things like going out for a walk or going snowshoeing – you just don’t feel like doing those things anymore. You get depressed, and it’s a very specific kind of depressed because Brianna’s not there anymore. That really weighs on you. But then you think of Brianna and the person she is, and that helps.”
A mother’s love
Kellie positively beams when she recalls the kind of person her daughter was before her disappearance. A smile spreads across her face and there’s a visible change in her body language. She breaths easier and the tension seems to lift from her shoulders.
Brianna had spent much of March 19, 2005 with her mother. The teen had just earned her GED high school equivalency diploma, and she and Kellie went out shopping and to get lunch. Kellie was treated to having her own personal waitress at KJ’s, a St. Albans restaurant where Brianna worked one of her two waitressing jobs.
“She wasn’t working there that day, but she got me my menu and took care of me. She really put a lot of pride into her work, and she loved what she did,” Kellie recalled. “It was such a wonderful time.”
To ask Kellie what quality she misses most about her daughter is to give her an impossible task. Brianna’s traits flow from Kellie’s lips like water from a faucet, and it becomes quite clear that the young woman who disappeared last year was more than Kellie’s daughter. She was Kellie’s friend.
“She was so strong. I miss that strength that she had,” Kellie said. “She took risks, even when she was very small... She loved doing things her way. And she was very creative. I remember she took a dance class when she was little, and she was taught a move, but she just took her own route with it. She came out saying she had been fired for not doing it right.”
Kellie described Brianna as someone who, on one hand could handle a dirt bike, ride a jet ski and shoot clay pigeons, while on the other hand she had a passion for literature, a love of Mexican food and a desire for freedom.
“Freedom was worth everything to her,” Kellie said. “Not just hers, either. If there was anybody getting picked on, she’d step right in and be there for them. Injustice really bothered her.”
What happened?
Given the amount of time that has passed since Brianna’s disappearance, the investigation into her disappearance has yielded little in the way of useful information. “No concrete evidence has been found that can lead investigators or the Maitland family to conclude what happened to Brianna,” a release issued by the Vermont State Police this week reads.
Detective Sergeant Dee Glynn, lead investigator on Brianna’s case, declined to talk to the County Courier about the investigation this week. She said she wished to reserve comment for a joint meeting of area law enforcement agencies on Friday, March 18 at the Vermont State Police St. Albans Barracks. At that time the case is expected to be reviewed by officials.
Kellie and Bruce have their own theories concerning Brianna’s disappearance, chief among them being that her disappearance is gang-related and involves area drug trafficking. Brianna’s parents have said there was a presence of drugs in the young woman’s life, though they also say it’s unlikely she was heavily involved with them.
“Our best belief is that it’s gangsters,” Kellie said. “Out of everything we know, that makes the most sense. There was a carload of Brianna’s friends either that night (that she disappeared) or the next day at McDonald’s in Enosburg. They were threatened by (people known to be associated with gang activity).”
If Brianna was taken by such people, where did she end up? The Maitlands again have a few ideas, but one near the top of the list is that she was kidnapped, taken to New York City and forced to participate in a sex-slave ring.
“It happens,” Kellie said. “It’s hard to believe, but we do live in that kind of world.”
A happy ending
With a year nearly passed and no hard evidence to work with, it’s obvious that the story of Brianna Maitland’s disappearance is not like those seen on television detective shows. There is no tidy ending or dramatic revelation at this point, and seemingly, no happy ending.
Kellie offered a different perspective on things, though.
“You don’t give up,” she said. “You hang loose and stay creative. There’s a whole network of people who work with us and help us keep hope alive... We haven’t found Brianna yet, but we’re still looking. And so many people want to help us find her.
“That’s the happy ending to this story for now.”

xx Maitland Still Missing
« Reply #11 on: Mar 18th, 2005, 11:09pm »

One year later, people here in Franklin County have not forgotten Brianna Maitland. Her missing poster is faded. And still no clue to her fate. Keally LaCross is Brianna's close friend. She's afraid she may never have a chance to renew that friendship.


"I got into an argument with her and I really regret everything that happened between us. I really wish she was here today," says LaCross.

Tomorrow, family and friends of Brianna Maitland will walk the route that she drove the night she disappeared, from the Black Lantern where she worked, down the road about a mile to where one of the few clues in her disappearance was found.


Maitland's 1985 Oldsmobile was found backed into the end of an abandoned house on Route 118. Police say forensic testing revealed no evidence of what happened to Maitland. Investigators from several Vermont law enforcement agencies and the FBI met today to discuss the case.


Vermont State Police lieutenant Tom Nelson says it's still a missing person investigation in spite of allegations that Maitland had associated with known drug dealers.


"Unfortunately, there is not a concrete answer at this time," says Nelson. "There was information coming in that she may have been involved in drug activity, and we said back months ago that we don't have a scope as to what that means. And we don't today. We're not going to say that she was involved in illegal drug activity."


With the Maitland case at an apparent impasse, the community is left looking for answers. Maitland's friend says she's taking her own advice.


"To be careful, not to be out late at night alone. Nobody knew where she was going, really. She was supposed to be going to Julian's house, a friend of ours. She never went home... Her checks were found in her car... It's really scary," says LaCross.

"There are times we should be a little more aware of what's going on with our kids, be a little more involved, find out what's going on in their lives. Maybe some of this could be prevented," says Rob Barnard of the Snow Shoe Lodge & Pub.


Police are hoping that someone with relevant, factual and good information will come forward, and help solve the disappearance of Brianna Maitland.

The walk for Brianna Maitland begins at the Black Lantern Inn in Montgomery tomorrow morning at 11:20. That's the hour on the clock that Brianna Maitland left work the night of March 19, 2004 -- and has not been seen since.

BERKSHIRE: State police drew the attention of area residents Tuesday, May 17, when they brought special diving and canine units to the northern end of Berkshire’s Reservoir Road to search for Brianna Maitland.
Maitland has been missing since Friday, March 19, 2004, when she was last seen leaving work at the Black Lantern Inn restaurant in Montgomery.
There were about 25 police officers and rescue workers involved in combing the land and searching a pond in the area beginning Tuesday morning.
It was not new information that brought police out to search the area at this time, said Lt. Brian Miller, of the St. Albans barracks of the Vermont State Police (VSP).
“We don’t have any direct evidence (connecting the area),” said Miller, who is the detective overseeing the investigation. The area, which consists of several acres of woodland, wetland and a pond, is one in a long list of locations and information that police are continuing to follow-up in the case.
“It’s just kind of been on our list of things that we’ve wanted to check,” Miller said. “It’s just part of the continuing investigation. We have a lot of things that we’d like to do on the case.”
Miller said Tuesday’s scrutiny of the area came because of an opportunity to combine resources from training and other sources in conjunction with favorable seasonal conditions.
Such investigations can be weather and manpower dependent, Miller said. Police wanted to search the woodlands and pond before leaves had completely budded out, he said. So when the divers were scheduled for training this week and the extra canine units were available, they “felt it was prudent to search here,” he said.
“It worked out well that they could do their training here,” Miller said. The diving team is training with Colchester Rescue.
The special canine unit, with two dogs and two officers, came up from the Connecticut State Police, he said. They are different than canine units regularly available to the barracks because they are trained to follow a specific human scent. Tuesday’s search turned up nothing new.
Anyone with information regarding the disappearance of Brianna Maitland should contact the VSP at 802-524-5993, or call Bruce and Kellie Maitland, Brianna’s parents, at 802-933-6255 or go to www.bringbrihome.org. The family is also offering a $10,000 reward for her safe return or information that helps convict those responsible for her disappearance.
