Mary Lands' family meets with Susan Mladenoff, Calhoun County Prosecutor

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.

Please help Mary's parents especially in this difficult holiday. Look into your heart and feel their pain.
You know what you can tell the police today and God will reward you for the help.
It is difficult but you can do it and end this nightmare of many families who have suffered.
It is those who we believed would never help that actually can be the true hero's and come through for us all.
Jesus' strength gives us courage;
"I have told you all this so you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world" (John 16:33)
