Take just a few seconds to think about how it would feel if someone you loved went missing and was never heard from again. I can’t even wrap my mind around what this would be like. The initial waiting and worrying. The days passing. The weeks passing. And suddenly the years are passing. And not a word. Not a sign. Not a clue.
Janice was last seen in Tolland, CT on the afternoon of July 26, 1973. She left home on her bicycle to retrieve a butterfly she had hidden under a rock a short distance from her house. She never returned.
This goes out to all of my fellow bloggers, Facebook followers and Twitter followers. A plea to just share this story, this message. Somewhere, someone knows something.
Janice’s sister is a friend of mine. She continues to search for her sister almost 40 years later. 40 years. Can you imagine not knowing what ever happened to your sister or brother? Your son or you daughter? I can’t.
Janice’s story has been covered by a number of media outlets, including Nancy Grace. Though there have been leads along the way, the Pockett family has never found the conclusive answer they search for. Or their sister. Or their daughter.
Here is her Facebook page, which I encourage you to share.
Here is a heart-wrenching song that was just written about her, in hopes of raising not only awareness but money for a memorial bench in Janice’s name:
I hope you can find it in your hearts to share Janice’s story and spread the word. One day, hopefully soon, this family will find the answers to the questions they’ve been asking for almost 4 decades.
Blessings and peace.
