Woman now missing for seven years
August 29, 2009
CATSKILL — Police say few viable leads have been developed in recent years regarding the disappearance of Audrey May Herron, who vanished seven years ago today.
Herron, a Freehold resident who was 31 at the time, left work at the Greene County Long Term Health Care Center in the Jefferson Heights section of Catskill the evening of Aug. 29, 2002, and hasn’t been seen since. A licensed practical nurse, Herron left the health facility driving a black 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee with New York license plates X23-3UV but never came home to her husband and three children.
The vehicle also remains unaccounted for.
In a press release issued Friday, state police at Catskill said Herron’s disappearance remains an active and open case but that “few viable leads have been developed since the intensive first few years following her disappearance.”
Police said similar cases and incidents are closely monitored for similarities, and DNA comparisons are ongoing on unidentified human remains throughout the United States and Canada.
Immediately after Herron’s disappearance, police and volunteers conducted ground searches by retracing the woman’s possible routes home, covering about 120 miles of roads and trails. Police also used helicopters to trace the routes.
In May 2008, Herron’s case was among several included in a deck of New York “cold case” playing cards. The cards — relating to homicides and missing-person cases — were given to jail and prison inmates in hopes they might recognize someone and be able to provide authorities with information. Herron’s card was the jack of diamonds.
Herron is white and 5 feet tall and weighed 105 pounds when she vanished. She has hazel eyes and light brown hair and last was seen wearing green medical scrubs and a blue turtleneck.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the state police at (518) 622-8600.
