Everyone is someone's CHILD~

Missing in New Hampshire ~


Where are our missing loved ones?


The faces and stories that will be appearing here are those of Missing Individuals here in New Hampshire; missing, lost, abducted!

Everyone that is missing deserves the chance to have their information out there for others to see. Every story is different, but just the same, they ALL deserve the same treatment.

I am compiling photo's, websites, information, stories, etc. to help generate those that have disappeared in NH. If you have a case that is not featured here, please let me know and I will be sure it is added.

Louise,
Thank you for posting this. Although we have been fortunate in that Maura Murray has been one of the three posted on the NHSP website, it has always bothered me that they do not list the other missing persons.

It is my understanding that Trooper David Kelly is in charge of 'Historic Cases' with the NH State Police and he might be the best one to address your letters to.

The other piece of information, I found because of an email sent to me last week.

(Approved: July 14, 2005)

(Effective Date: September 12, 2005)

As I wrote to someone this week, "Change is Good". I suspect Aime Riley's mom played a major role in bringing this change about. Perhaps while we are at it, we should also ask that they feature the unsolved cases in NH. The Vermont State Police started doing this just about this time last year.

I think this part of the law is just wrong, 72 hours. the first 48 hours are hte most crucial in any missing person case and the law states they have up to 72 hours to enter in NCIC. I think they should do it immediately. I think too many states wait the 72 hours to enter this info and it is just wrong, if it were their family memner I bet it would be different. Just expressing my opinion..

I went to school with Shirley Mcbride in Manchester, NH and at the time of her disappearance, my father worked at the same place her boyfriend claimed to have worked at. I lived in Concord at the time she disappeared. I was young...14. I remember seeing missing person flyers hanging from trees around Concord, but that is all I remember hearing of the case. My father never heard of anything about her disappearance or who her boyfriend was that worked at Concord Litho. It is tragic. We were friends in middle school...she was such a nice girl. I still wonder about what happened to her and feel so sad for her and her family. Tragic.
