Nearly two years after she went missing, authorities still do not know what happened to Joan Conetta.
Police have been searching for the Whiting woman since she disappeared on June 11, 2012, then age 74.
Most missing persons cases are solved within a day or two, police said. It’s difficult for police still not to have closure in Conetta’s disappearance.
Potential remains and living persons matches for Conetta, a grey-haired, hazel-eyed woman approximately 5 feet 1 inch tall and weighing 100 pounds, still come in to the police department. But none have been her.
Authorities have said that they believe Conetta left her St. John Place home in Crestwood Village I with a “large sum of money” and handgun. Searches of the woods near her home, including with cadaver dogs that are able to find the deceased, have yielded nothing.
Anyone who may have information regarding Conetta's whereabouts is asked to contact Hemhauser at 732-657-2009, ext. 4207.
