Good news for the Marshall's on their 45th Wedding Anniversary

Cliff & Anita enjoy a night out with friends and supporters at the Riverside in Marshall, Michigan.

Much of their comfort today came with the news that ABC's "20/20" is undertaking a story about their missing daughter, Mary Denise Lands. They believe this could be lead to assisting law enforcement in closing Mary's case. Thank you to all who have helped in our efforts over the last 6 years, one month, and 25 days.
Happy Anniversary Cliff & Anita from all of us, and enjoy your Mother's Day.

How come they can't charge Pratt without a body? They did in a Michigan county south of here.

Doug Stewart, the estranged husband of missing woman Venus Stewart, has been formally charged with her abduction and murder, despite the fact that her body has not yet been recovered.

Venus vanished on the morning of April 26 from her parents’ home in Colon Township, Michigan after heading outside to check the mail.

Stewart was named a person of interest in his wife’s disappearance, almost from the beginning of the investigation.

Authorities note that another man, Richard Spencer, is an alleged co-conspirator in the case, claiming to have pretended to be Stewart in Virginia to give him an alibi while Stewart was actually in Michigan kidnapping and killing his wife.

Prosecutor John McDonough said Stewart and Spencer had planned the crime for about a month before the abduction of Venus took place. He also said that Stewart left investigators a bevy of evidence that connected him to the crime.

According to WKZO, the search for Venus’ body will now intensify.
