Update- December 1, 2010 This morning, Cliff & Anita Marshall met with Calhoun County Prosecutor, Susan Mladenoff at the Criminal Justice Center in Battle Creek. It was a very productive discussion related to the investigation of their daughter's disappearance. Mary Denise Lands has now been missing for 6 years, 8 months, & 19 days. On March 12, 2011 it will be seven years since her former fiancé, Chris Pratt alleged that she went for a walk and never returned home. He is now serving a sentence of 5-15 years for brutal felony domestic violence offenses that were perpetrated on a more recent girl-friend, Norrene Parker.
