about 5:00 PM on 9 December 2001, 36-year-old Sharon Shechter disappeared from the vicinity of her Perinton, New York, home and has not been seen or heard from since. Three days later her Dodge Caravan was discovered at a Days Inn in the nearby town of Gates; police found blood inside the vehicle, but they have not yet uncovered evidence of foul play.

That's about all that's known for now. Sharon has been missing for over seven months, and the police have not reported publicly that they have any leads in the case. Information and updates about Sharon can be found on the Monroe County (NY) Sheriff's Office web site, and the New York State Sheriff's Association web site.
