FEBRUARY 2ND, 2009 UPDATE!
On February 4, 2001, Tina was 34, and her daughter, Bethany, was 15, and they vanished...they haven't been seen or heard from in eight years! Since my sister and my niece have been gone, so has a part of me. I haven't ever been the same. My heart is broken and so is my spirit. My mother has gradually crumbled as time has passed without her precious daughter and granddaughter. The anger, hatred, confusion, nightmares have shredded through me and made me into a person I don't even recognize anymore! Our family was divided at first for a long time, as nothing was the same. The holidays, birthdays, family gatherings were like a bad dream because Tina and Bethany weren't there.

Missing Tina and Beth (website) has a lot of information about the case, as well as a family struggling to get through this never-ending nightmare. At one point, someone was cruel enough to remove a memorial in Tina and Beth's name...not once, but TWICE!

We are going to replace the memorial with the old one today which was stolen Fall of 2007 and recovered Spring of 2008, [in back of a storage shed on the Putney road above the Marina] in Brattleboro, VT. It is still unclear who took it and why they dumped it? but we were grateful to have found it.
A new memorial sign to replace the one that was recently stolen is being recreated by McCarthy signs, as we speak, and will be installed in time for my mother to decorate for Christmas.
