    JAMESTOWN, N.Y. - Police in the Southern Tier continue to search for a missing mother of three after finding her minivan in a field.

    Corrie Anderson of Ashville was last seen leaving a car dealership shortly after 1 p.m. Tuesday. A missing person's report was filed after she failed to pick up one of her children from school later that afternoon.

    On Thursday, state police recovered Anderson's Dodge Caravan from a field south of the city of Jamestown and sent it to Batavia for forensic testing. But there was no sign of Anderson.

    Anderson is 36 years old, has blonde hair and wears wire-rimmed glasses.

    The New York State Police say they've found Corrie Anderson's van in a heavily wooded area just south of Jamestown. They still have not located the 36 year old mother.

    Police say the last time Corrie Anderson, 36, Ashville, was seen was on Tuesday afternoon shortly after 1pm. She was leaving Lake County Dodge in Jamestown. Police say she missed several appointments that day and didn't pick-up her son from school.

    "Speaking with family members and friends, it's very out of Ms. Anderson's character not to call anyone," said New York State Trooper Rebecca Gibbons.

    Investigators searched a field and wooded area that Chautauqua County D.A. David Foley says is property that is owned by someone that either once was or currently is married to Anderson.

    Family members were busy passing out flyers Thursday.

    Foley says a Chautauqua County search is always difficult because there is such a wide area to cover. In fact, just across the road from where Anderson lives is a 447 acre state park.

    The southern tier mother was last seen wearing black corduroy pants and a black leather jacket. Her vehicle, a 2005, blue Dodge Caravan hasn't been found either.

    Police searched her Ashville home Wednesday night looking for any clues.

    All family and friends can do is wait.

    "We're terribly worried for Corrie, we love her dearly," said Shari Shields, Anderson's friend and neighbor.

    Shields says she has noticed some strange things the last few years in their rural neighborhood.

    "Last January, we had somebody walk in on my youngest daughter when she was home alone," said Shields. "And if it hadn't been for the dog, that might have been a big issue. But things around here are changing."

    "This should be a place where things like that don't happen," said Kent Shields, Anderson's neighbor. "That happens thousands of miles away, not to your neighbor."

    Kent Shields and Corrie Anderson used to work together in the library at Jamestown Community College. He says Corrie still works there.

    "I stopped at the library today," said Shields. "It's surrealistic that someone I worked with is gone or can't be found. It distresses me greatly."

    "We're tracking her steps," said Trooper Gibbons. "At this point we're interviewing anyone with any possibilities of any leads that might come in and hoping that anyone who sees this might have some information as to where she might be."

    If you have any information about Corrie Anderson's whereabouts, please call the New York State Police in Jamestown at 716-665-3113.

    BUSTI - New York State Police spent much of the day Friday searching state land in Busti, less than 24 hours after a van belonging to missing Ashville woman Corrie Anderson was found in a field off Kortwright Road.
    Chautauqua County District Attorney David Foley, who is handling all comments for the case, said the van has been taken to Batavia for further investigation.
    ''The state police will be conducting an exhaustive forensic search of the vehicle,'' he said. ''We are hopeful it will turn up some clues.''
    Investigators searched a Celoron home Thursday evening, taking the occupant into custody for a period of time then releasing him.
    Foley said he couldn't comment on the man's identity.
    Anderson's van was found after a citizen called police, first thinking it may belong to hunters. Once police arrived, they quickly determined it was Ms. Anderson's vehicle and a cursory search of the area began.
    The van was found on what Foley described as a ''farm road,'' which was grassy and leading toward a gas well.
    ''The van was not visible from the road,'' he said. ''It was past a gas well down the trail beyond a peak. It's fortunate we were able to recover it.''
    As of Friday afternoon, police were still conducting interviews of family members and other people who know Ms. Anderson.
    The search in Busti is being conducted on a grid-by-grid basis, but since it is a sprawling 447 acres of heavily wooded terrain, law enforcement are asking hunters who might be in the area to keep an open eye.
    ''Since hunting season has begun, we are asking hunters who see anything that looks suspicious to call the state police,'' Foley said. ''We are still treating this as a missing person's investigation and my office is assisting by making sure all proper procedures are followed.''
    The 36-year-old mother of three was last seen in Jamestown leaving the Lake County Dodge car dealership on Washington Street on Tuesday afternoon. State police said she was not getting work done on her van, only stopping by to visit with a friend.
    She later missed a parent/teacher conference and never picked up her 6-year-old son from school, prompting her mother to notify police.
    Ms. Anderson has green eyes and chin-length blond hair. She is about 5 feet, 11 inches tall and weighs 170 pounds. She was last seen wearing black corduroy pants, a black leather jacket and small, wire-rimmed glasses.
    Family and friends will hold a community prayer vigil at 7 p.m. tonight at the Lakewood Baptist Church.
    Anyone with information about Ms. Anderson's whereabouts is asked to call the state police in Jamestown at 665-3113.

    Another day of clear skies and warm weather aided law enforcement crews as they scoured an area of woods near the home of missing local mother Corrie Anderson.
    Although rumors that they had located Ms. Anderson were widely heard and retold over the past few days, Captain Timothy Talley said they have no merit.
    ''If we found Ms. Anderson, we wouldn't hold that back,'' he said. ''We would definitely get the word out officially for the family and the community.''
    Another full day of searching will take place today and leads are still being followed in relation to the criminal investigation, Talley said.
    For such a sizable detail, the number of agencies involved is proportionate.
    Along with the New York and Pennsylvania State Police, the search and investigation has included the help of members of the Chautauqua County Sheriff's Department, FBI, Lakewood-Busti Police Department, Ellicott Police Department, Jamestown Police Department, New York Forest Rangers, Department of Environmental Conservation and the Cattaraugus County Sheriff's Department among others.
    Talley said he appreciated the support other agencies have shown with the operation, and hopes they find Ms. Anderson or the missing piece to the puzzle to locate her soon.
    Helicopters, ATVs, canine units and GPS mapping are all being utilized to ensure that every inch of land searched is mapped and completely free of evidence, Talley explained.
    He said that even though the ground search has covered a lot of ground, the aerial search, complete with forward-looking infrared technology, has covered even more.
    Talley said that a crime victim specialist has been spending time with the Anderson family to make sure all their needs are being met and they understand just what law enforcement crews are working on.
    Searches typically last from 8 a.m. until dusk and all the meals and beverages for the search crews have been provided for free by the West Ellicott Wegmans store.
    Ms. Anderson was last seen at 1:10 p.m., Oct. 28, leaving the Lake County Dodge car dealership on Washington Street in Jamestown.
    She went to her part-time job at JCC's Hultquist Library that morning and stopped by the dealership to say hi to a friend. She hasn't been heard from since.
    Her van was found Oct. 30, on a trail past a gas well off of Kortwright Road in Busti, not far from her home on Wellman Road. The van was taken to Batavia for evidence collection which Talley said has concluded, although police aren't releasing details citing the ongoing investigation.
    Since her vehicle was found, authorities have been searching several wooded areas in Chautauqua County as well as Pennsylvania looking for clues as well as Ms. Anderson.
    Ms. Anderson has green eyes and chin-length blond hair. She is about 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs 170 pounds. She was last seen wearing black corduroy pants, a black leather jacket and small, wire-rimmed glasses.
    Anyone with information about Ms. Anderson or her whereabouts is asked to call the state police at 665-3113.

    Hunters asked to look for missing Jamestown woman

    CHAUTAUQUA — Corrie L. Anderson’s family gathered Friday to ask deer hunters entering the woods this weekend to join in the search for the missing mother of three.

    And if someone abducted the 36-year-old Chautauqua County woman, Vicki Acquisto made an emotional appeal on her daughter’s behalf:

    “Please let her go, please let her come home. Her kids are waiting for her. We all love her and want her back home,” the tearful mother pleaded.

    Anderson never showed to pick up her 6-year-old son at the end of the school day Oct. 28.

    The family met individually with reporters Friday on the grounds of the Chautauqua Institution to make the appeal and acquaint the public with the missing woman they say is a devoted mother and would never run away from her responsibilities.

    Her name now is added to a frightful list that includes three other Chautauqua County women who have disappeared over the years, with two later found dead, and no one brought to justice.

    • Yolanda Bindics, a 25-year-old Jamestown mother of four, disappeared Aug. 10, 2004. Her car was found a day later. Her skeletal remains were found Sept. 10, 2006, by target shooters practicing in a densely wooded area on state forest land in the town of Charlotte.

    • Lori Ceci Bova, 26, has been missing for 11 years. She was last seen walking away from her apartment in Lakewood, a village just outside Jamestown.

    • Kathy A. Wilson, 34, of Jamestown, took a lunch break from her job in May 1988 and never was heard from again. Her body was found 16 months later in a wooded area in Warren, Pa. The man accused of kidnapping and murdering her was later acquitted.

    “My heart goes out to those families. If you haven’t been in it, you really don’t know the pain,” Acquisto said, wanting to let the families of the other women know that they are not forgotten.

    Anderson’s dark blue 2005 Dodge Caravan was found Oct. 30 parked behind a knoll in a hay field about 100 yards off Kortwright Road, which is approximately 1.3 miles from her ranch home on Wellman Road in the Town of Busti.

    Ever since then, family members and state police have been out every day searching the forests for any trace of Anderson, who was described as a church-going woman who enjoys baking and working with young people.

    The day she disappeared, in fact, she was on her way to her son Zachary’s class, where she is a room mother, to discuss planning a Halloween party. She never arrived for the 3:15 p.m. meeting.

    Anderson is soft-spoken and easygoing, according to her younger sister, Autumn Boardman of Stow.

    Employed for the last 3 1/2 years as a library technician at Jamestown Community College, Anderson has medium-length blond hair, is 5 foot 11 inches, 170 pounds and athletic looking. Mike Samuelson, her boyfriend, who joined the family Friday, said he and Anderson planned to marry next summer or fall.

    She had been married but left her husband about two years ago. Anderson was introduced to Samuelson by Boardman’s husband last December and they immediately hit it off and began dating, Samuelson said.

    Authorities are treating her disappearance as a criminal matter because of Anderson’s close ties to the community, according to Chautauqua County District Attorney David W. Foley.

    Anderson’s older brother, Scott Barker, appealed to fellow hunters to be vigilant in looking for clues and also to be careful because large numbers of community volunteers will soon begin widespread searches.

    “Corrie was a pretty smart outdoors person who would have taken shelter in blinds or cabins or even trash piles to get out of the weather,” he said.

    Should anyone discover anything suspicious, the family asked that the scene not be disturbed and that police be called.

    It has snowed twice since Anderson was reported missing. And at times, Barker has trudged through the woods in foot-deep snow, which is now melted.

    “There’s a group of our family, five or six, who go out every day. They leave at seven when it gets light out and come back when it’s dark,” Acquisto said. She added she and the rest of her family are grateful to authorities who also have been searching.

    Anderson lived across the road from a state forest and would take her children hiking there. She and Samuelson also went bicycling with her children, Kaitlyn, 17; Shannon, 15, and Zachary.

    It has been particularly difficult for Kaitlyn and Shannon. “The older two have heard all the rumors going around and have to deal with it,” Acquisto said. “You name it, it’s out there. That she’s tied to a tree, run away or been found dead in the backyard.”

    But those rumors are nonsense to the family.

    Autumn Boardman said she spoke with her older sister every day, including the day she disappeared, and that her sister sounded in good spirits.

    “I called her at noon that day. She was upbeat. I called to let her know something was on sale and she said she was just thinking about that,” Boardman said.

    The family also said Anderson’s father, Timothy L. Barker, who lives in Florida, has been helping long distance, providing information from the Internet to them on a daily basis.

    And as for Anderson’s youngest child, he is staying at his grandmother’s house. Every night before he goes to bed, Zachary offers a prayer.

    “He prays his mom will come home safe,” Acquisto said.

    Crime Stoppers groups from both New York and Pennsylvania are crossing state lines and joining together to offer a cash reward for information about a missing mother of three from the Southern Tier.

    Corrie Anderson, 36, of Busti, was last seen Oct. 28, leaving the Lake County Dodge in the City of Jamestown.

    Anderson missed a meeting at 3:15 p.m. that day and did not pick up her son from school. Family members told investigators it was unusual for Anderson to disappear, and the New York State Police consider her disappearance suspicious.

    Anderson is described as a white female, 5 feet, 11 inches tall, 170 pounds, with blonde, shoulder-length hair and green eyes. She was last seen wearing black corduroy pants, a black leather jacket and glasses.

    Anderson is known to frequent Pennsylvania.

    The Warren County Crime Stoppers in Pennsylvania and the Greater Buffalo Metropolitan Crime Stoppers are offering a cash reward for any information leading to Andersonís location.

    Anyone in Pennsylvania with information is asked to contact the Warren County Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 83-CRIME, and anyone outside of Pennsylvania can reach them at (814) 728-3600.

    Although there are many reasons someone may not call in a tip to law enforcement, the New York State Police are hoping a financial incentive will generate solid information as to the whereabouts of missing local mother Corrie Anderson.
    Senior State Police Investigator Greg Holt said the case is now connected with two organizations that provide rewards for information crucial to investigations.
    ''We have coordinated with the greater Buffalo Metropolitan Crime Stoppers and the Warren County, Pa., Crime Stoppers with the hopes that someone comes forward and gives us the information we need to find Ms. Anderson,'' Holt said. ''The reward isn't a set amount but can be collected anonymously. It hinges upon the information helping us locate Ms. Anderson.''
    The investigation is ongoing, and Holt said they are looking at a number of possibilities as well as people for answers.
    ''At this time, there haven't been any developments that lead us to one particular person,'' he said. ''We want hunters, hikers, snowmobilers and anyone who may be out in the woods to keep an eye out for anything suspicious. If you're out there, please remember that there is a woman missing.''
    Ms. Anderson, a mother of three, was last seen Oct. 28 after visiting a friend at the Lake County Dodge dealership on Washington Street in Jamestown.
    She was reported missing only a few hours later when she failed to pick up her son from school and meet with the teacher to plan the class Halloween party.
    Since then, state police, along with virtually every other law enforcement agency in the area, including the FBI and the Pennsylvania State Police, have conducted extensive searches of wooded areas where they thought Ms. Anderson might be located.
    Her 2005 Dodge Caravan was found Oct. 30 on an access road off of Kortwright Road not far from her home on Wellman Road. The van has since been sent to Batavia where police searched it for evidence which may prove helpful to the criminal investigation.
    Ms. Anderson has green eyes and chin-length blond hair. She is about 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs 170 pounds. She was last seen wearing black corduroy pants, a black leather jacket and small, wire-rimmed glasses.
    Anyone with any information about Ms. Anderson or her whereabouts is asked to call the state police at 665-3113, the Greater Buffalo Crime Stoppers at 856-5600, or the Warren County Crime Stoppers at 800-83-CRIME.
    All calls will be kept confidential and rewards can be collected anonymously.

    A community search for a missing Ashville woman has been postponed for safety reasons, according to Captain Timothy Talley of the New York State Police at Jamestown. Although, the search has been halted, Talley said the investigation into Corrie Anderson's disappearance is continuing.
    ''A couple different things factored into this decision,'' Talley said. ''It was primarily the snowfall and the danger of putting a large number of civilians into the woods when hunting season is in full swing.''
    Ms. Anderson, a mother of three, was last seen Oct. 28 after visiting a friend at the Lake County Dodge dealership on Washington Street in Jamestown.
    She was reported missing only a few hours later when she failed to pick up her son from school and meet with the teacher to plan the class Halloween party.

    Although Talley said he couldn't discuss the specifics of the case, he did say the search of the van had concluded and that the evidence has been processed.
    Citizens won't be bundling up to search anytime soon, but Talley did ask hunters who are out and about to keep an open eye for anything unusual and if they see something, call police.
    Talley also said that just because people aren't seeing large groups of law enforcement officers on the sides of rural roads searching, it doesn't mean they aren't actively working on the case.
    ''We're still following up on leads every day and working on the criminal investigation,'' Talley said. ''The public has come forward with tips and that has been helpful.''
    Ms. Anderson's family members say they believe she is alive and waiting to be found and rescued. They are encouraging the public to come forward with any information that might help them reunite with her.
    A fund has been established by Hultquist Library staff members at Jamestown Community College to assist Ms. Anderson's family with ongoing expenses.
    Donations can be delivered to Cheryl Swart at the Hultquist Library circulation desk or sent directly to Affinity One Federal Credit Union (formerly MRC), 545 E. Second St., Jamestown, NY 14701. Checks should be made out to the Corrie Anderson Family Fund.

    Unless you have been in a similar situation, chances are you cannot fathom what it is like when someone you love goes missing. You see the cases on the news all the time, but how often do you actually take the time to contemplate what the families are going through? It is not easy, nor is it pleasant; however, it is something everyone needs to do, for that person could easily be your own spouse or relative.
    One of the families experiencing the pain and the frustration of the unknown is that of 36-year-old Corrie L. Anderson, a mother of three from Chautauqua County, New York, who went missing in October of this year. Since that time, investigators with the New York State Police have released few details regarding the status of the case, and it has all but slipped off the radar of many local media outlets.
    "Our hearts ache. How could this happen? It feels as though time is standing still," Corrie's cousin, Laurie Keefe, told Investigation Discovery. "While we struggle to be heard and tell all who will listen, the real world moves at its normal rapid pace, preparing for the holidays, oblivious to our pain. Did this really happen? It is surreal."
    In order to help you connect to this family – to understand who Corrie was and to relate to the situation at hand - I asked Corrie's closest family members to give us a glimpse into her life. I wanted to give you, the reader, a connection that you cannot obtain from a photo on a flyer. As expected, the family's response was both genuine, and heartfelt.
    "Corrie is strong, resilient, loving, generous and kind," her older brother, Scott Barker, told Investigation Discovery.
    Scott's wife, Jenny Barker, agreed, and went on to describe Corrie as someone who always put others before herself.

    "She has a really great smile," Jenny said. "She has a way of making everyone feel comfortable. She is never the center of attention and always puts herself last. First and foremost, she is a mom to her three children."
    Corrie is the second of four children. She and her family enjoyed life, growing up on a dairy farm in western New York. According to Corrie's mom, Vicki Acquisto, her daughter has always been full of life and adventure.
    "She would spend many hours outdoors with her brother Scott, exploring the creeks and woods," Vickie recalled with a smile.
    When they were young, Corrie and her sister, Autumn Boardman, had their share of sisterly spats, but, as the years went by, they became very close and grew to rely upon on each other.
    "Every Christmas season, with everything getting hectic - all those different family personalities and all - we would always buy a bottle of wine or something to drink when the holidays were done, but would never get to it," Autumn told Investigation Discovery. "We always seemed to get through by laughing instead. Corrie and I just enjoyed being able to talk about everything and anything, what life was and is currently handing us and listen to each other and gossiping. It seems it is just the simple things in life that we enjoyed and made us laugh.
    "She loves watching my kids grow. She was at the hospital for their births, so eager to meet them. She loves holding them, watching their first teeth come in, starting to crawl, first steps, and just becoming their own persons. I am hoping that I am at least half the mom she is."

    Corrie married Mike Hillerby when she was 18. Her daughter, Kaitlyn, was born a year later, followed by Shannon, a year and a half after that. Although Corrie tried her best to make the marriage work, it didn't. After seven years, she and the girls moved back home with Vicki and stepdad, Mickey. Her parents, along with her sister, Autumn, provided support and love to Corrie and the girls, and Corrie provided the same in return.
    In 2000, Corrie met Ken Anderson, and they married soon thereafter. The couple's son, Zack, was born a year later. Corrie became discouraged early in the marriage, but continued to try to make the relationship work. Unfortunately, Corrie soon came to find out that Ken had not divorced his previous wife, something which made her marriage to him invalid.

    Blindsided, Corrie moved out with the kids, and tried to determine what was best for them. According to the family, Ken pursued her strongly and became active in Corrie's church. As a result, Corrie agreed to attend counseling with him and then to try again to make the relationship work.
    Corrie and Ken moved into their home on Wellman Road in Ashville, NY in 2005. However, the problems in their relationship, combined with daughters who were now becoming teenagers, prompted Corrie to end the relationship with Ken later that next year. Family members say that she wanted and needed to be strong for her daughters and for Zack. Even though she was discouraged, she wanted to be a strong role model for her kids.
    "She has always been very responsible and a loving mom," Vicki said. "Tough, and yet compassionate."

    Corrie worked as a medical transcriptionist from home and, in 2005, she began working part time as a technical assistant at Jamestown Community College's Hultquist Library. Her family says the arrangement worked out well, as it allowed her to supplement her income, while still giving her the freedom to be available for her kids when they were home from school.
    Ken continued to pursue Corrie and family members say he became more aggressive, to a point where he allegedly placed a hidden GPS tracking device on her car to keep track of her movements. Upon learning of the device, Corrie notified the state police and took out a protective order for herself, her three kids, and her mom.
    In 2007, Corrie had Ken arrested for violating the protection order. As a result of the arrest, he was placed on probation.
    "Corrie and I were very aware that something might happen," Vicki said. "Every door and window in her home was habitually locked - even during the summer."
    Corrie's last email to Laurie, sent in July 2008, provides a snapshot into her life.
    "I share it so that you can see, firsthand, a little of who Corrie was at that time and what she was experiencing," Laurie said.
    The email reads, in part:
    Things have been crazy as always for me, but I have just learned to take a deep breath knowing that I will get through whatever is sent my way because as you can see I am still kicking and breathing whether my world goes into a whirlwind or not.
    Things with Ken have not fully resolved and probably never will. I have come to the conclusion that he is psycho and thrives off trying to make others feel like they are insane. We finalized a visitation schedule in the middle of January, where by July 1, he would have had a regular visitation schedule, meaning every other weekend and one night a week. BUT, he left town two weeks after the schedule was all put in place. It was a gradual unsupervised visitation schedule. He went to Alabama until June. I heard he got fired from another job so he is back!!!! He has not asked about visitation with Zack. The only thing he has taken court action on is the support. I would like to get the property all worked out and just move on as much as possible. I feel like he is dragging his feet with that because of a control issue.
    Zack is doing well. He played t-ball this spring and is doing wonderful in school. My girls have good heads on their shoulders, it is just this lousy teenager disease that seems to overtaken them for this period in their lives. Really, I cannot complain. They are healthy, smart, beautiful and can show a very loving and caring side. I believe that in a few years our daughters will return to us appreciating things in a whole different light. I CANT WAIT!!!!
    As far as me, I have been dating a guy who has been really wonderful to me. He treats me with respect, which is something I have not ever had. He actually lets me have an opinion and allows me to be me!!

    According to police, Corrie was last seen about 1:00 p.m. on October 28, when she visited her boyfriend at the Lake County Dodge dealership on Washington Street in Jamestown.
    Family members reported Corrie missing at about 3:45 p.m. that day, when she failed to show up at Zack's school for a meeting, where Shannon was supposed to meet her. Items found at Corrie's house suggest she made it home some time prior to her disappearance.
    Investigators with the New York State Police opened a file on the case and issued an APB (all points bulletin) for Corrie's blue 2005 Dodge Caravan, New York license number CX404.
    On October 30, a hunter discovered Corrie's car abandoned at a gas well off Kortwright Road in the town of Busti. The location is approximately two miles from Corrie's house.
    "I was working outside, when an old fellow I know came walking out of the woods and said that he had found the woman's car on my property," the landowner, who does not wish to be identified, told Investigation Discovery. "He said he did not want any part of it, so I took my farmhand up there to have a look. The van was just past the gas well, out of site from the road. I walked up to it and looked inside, but I did not see anyone or any sign of trouble. We compared the license plate numbers to the one listed in the paper, and, sure enough, it was her car. I phoned the police, and within an hour, they had the whole area cordoned off."

    State police recovered the vehicle from the field, and sent it to Batavia for forensic testing.
    That night, investigators searched the Celoron, N.Y. home of Kenneth Anderson. Investigators reportedly questioned Anderson for several hours; however, what – if anything – they learned is unknown.
    Police have not called Kenneth Anderson a suspect or person of interest in Corrie's disappearance.
    In the weeks following Corrie's disappearance, multiple agencies have become involved in a search effort. Authorities used ATV's, helicopters and dogs to inspect areas of interest.
    When asked by a reporter from WIVB.com if there appears to be foul play, Chautauqua County District Attorney David Foley replied, "Well, we can't rule it out, so I think, from my perspective, we treat it as though there has been foul play."
    Yesterday, the search and recovery group Texas Equusearch announced that they would be joining the search for Corrie. Members of the group are expected to arrive in Jamestown this week to meet with the family. The organization is currently testing cadaver dogs to see if the animals can track scents in deep snow.

    A $15,000 reward is being offered for information leading to Corrie's whereabouts. Corrie's family has set up a Web site devoted to the case, which can be found at: www.findcorrie.com.
    The family asks sportsmen and others who might be out in the woods in the Chautauqua County area to keep an eye out for anything suspicious. In addition to Corrie, her keys and purse are also missing. Her purse is described as black, 8” x 8” square, with a G.H. Bass & Company logo.
    While you may not be able to actively volunteer your time to this case, you can help Corrie's family by taking a moment to pass on this article’s link to every friend, blog, message board, and Web site on the net. You can also send e-mails to Good Morning America, Greta Van Susteren, Nancy Grace, and request that they get involved in the case. Through your community effort, we can get Corrie the airtime she deserves.
    Corrie Anderson is 5-foot-11, 170 pounds, with green eyes and blond hair. She was last seen wearing black corduroy pants, a black leather jacket, and small wire-rimmed glasses.
    Anyone with information regarding her disappearance or whereabouts is asked to call the New York State Police at (716) 665-3113.

    Default Corrie Anderson, Missing 10/28/2008

    The Search for Missing Mother of Three Corrie Anderson

    I was on the scene in Jamestown, N.Y. today looking into the case of 36-year-old Corrie L. Anderson, a southern-tier mother of three who went missing early last week.
    According to police, Corrie was last seen on the afternoon of October 28, leaving the Lake County Dodge dealership on Washington Street in Jamestown. Family members reported Corrie missing later that day when she failed to pick up her 6-year-old son from school. Investigators with the New York State Police opened a file on the case and issued an APB (all points bulletin) for Corrie's blue 2005 Dodge Caravan, New York license number CX404.
    "We're appealing to people who have large parking lots... hotels or motels that this vehicle could be left abandoned where it wouldn't soon be noticed, so if people can, please check lots to see if any vehicles were left abandoned," State Police Major Christopher Cummings told WIVB.com.
    On October 30, a hunter discovered Corey's car abandoned at a gas well off of Kortwright Road in the town of Busti.
    "I was working outside, when an old fellow I know came walking out of the woods and said that he had found the woman's car on my property," the landowner, who does not wish to be identified, told Investigation Discovery. "He said he did not want any part of it, so I took my farmhand up there to have a look. The van was just past the gas well, out of site from the road. I walked up to it and looked inside, but I did not see anyone or any sign of trouble. We compared the license plate numbers to the one listed in the paper, and sure enough, it was her car. I phoned the police and within an hour they had the whole area cordoned off."
    State police recovered the vehicle from the field, and sent it to Batavia for forensic testing.
    That night, investigators searched the Celoron, N.Y. home of Corrie's second husband, Kenneth Anderson. It should be noted that several outlets are reporting that the Andersons are divorced; however, neighbors with whom I spoke said that their divorce had not yet been finalized.
    Investigators reportedly questioned Anderson for several hours; however, what – if anything – they learned is unknown. Police have not called Anderson a suspect or person of interest in his wife's disappearance.

    Getting back to the location where the car was found, the property owner said that it is not unusual for people to go onto his property to hunt or target shoot. He said he did not see any unusual activity in the area in the days leading up to the discovery of the car; however he did point out that the location is only a half-mile walk through the woods to Corrie's house, which is situated just across the road from the Wellman State Forest – a 447-acre state park. Driving distance from the location the car was found to her home is roughly two miles.
    Corrie and Kenneth Anderson had lived together in the house prior to their breakup, which occurred about two years ago. Corrie reportedly had one child with Kenneth and two children with her first husband.
    The property owner said he knew Kenneth personally and that, in previous years, he had allowed him to hunt on his property.
    There was one other interesting tidbit that the property owner shared with me; however, I have not yet been able to verify it. He said that in the weeks leading up to Corrie's disappearance, someone had broken into her house and rearranged her furniture. He said he was told that nothing was stolen, but that the incident had frightened her. He also recalled a recent incident in which someone had allegedly threatened her with a gun.
    In a recent statement to the media, Lt. Jim Quattrone of the Chautauqua County Sheriff's Department warned the public that there are a lot of "rumors" and "disinformation" out there. As a result, I took the information I was given to the authorities for verification; however, they had "no comment." Hence, the validity of the land owner's statements remains unclear.
    During the past week, multiple agencies have been involved in the search for Corrie. Authorities say that have used ATV's, helicopters and cadaver sniffing dogs to help them clear areas of interest. At this time there are no plans to organize a community search party.
    When asked by a reporter from WIVB.com if there appears to be foul play, Chautauqua County District Attorney David Foley replied, "Well, we can't rule it out, so I think, from my perspective, we treat it as though there has been foul play."
    On Saturday, friends and family members held a prayer vigil for Corrie at the Lakewood Baptist Church.
    ''I don't know a lot of the people here tonight, but I know you're here because you care,'' said Pastor Dan Cook of Lakewood Baptist Church. ''We are all here to reach out, to pray for strength from God. Let us pray that the angels of God will surround Corrie at this time and lift her up and protect her. We should also pray for law enforcement, for their personal safety and wisdom to make the right decisions.''
    Corrie has been employed as a part-time technical assistant at Jamestown Community College's Hultquist Library. According to Nelson J. Garifi, Jr., a spokesperson for the college, Corrie started working there in 2005.
    ''We are giving our full cooperation to those investigating Corrie's disappearance. We are keeping her family and friends, as well as her colleagues in the library, in our thoughts as we pray that Corrie will return home safely soon," Garifi said in an interview with Post-Journal.com.
    Corrie Anderson is 5-foot-11, 170 pounds, with green eyes and blond hair. She was last seen wearing black corduroy pants, a black leather jacket, and small wire-rimmed glasses.
    Friends or family members of Corrie are asked to contact David Lohr via e-mail. Anyone with information regarding her disappearance or whereabouts is asked to call the State Police at (716) 665-3113.

    At this time Texas EquuaSearch is in Jamestown Ny assisting in the search for Corrie. I have contacted Erin Bridwell to let her know that I live close by and would be available to help in the search.
