Vermont State Police Launch Unsolved Cases Pages

WATERBURY, Vt. — On the eve of the 12th anniversary of 17-year-old Brianna Maitland's disappearance from Montgomery on March 19, 2004, the Vermont State Police is launching a new tool to provide an increased focus and public awareness of unsolved cases such as Maitland's.

Interactive Vermont Missing Persons and Unsolved Homicides pages have been created in an effort to make case specific information more readily available to the public, and create awareness that might generate new information for investigators.

"The launch of these pages will hopefully generate conversation, awareness and potentially new information to assist investigators. These cases have a profound impact on the lives of victims' families, loved ones, and our communities. Our efforts here are just one step towards ensuring that these cases are not forgotten and that we are committed to finding answers," said Criminal Division Commander Maj. Glenn Hall of the new web tools. "We strongly encourage the public to submit any information that could help bring resolution to these cases."

A searchable map with dropdown lists by name and county allow users to identify those cases, then link to a page with the most current information available on each case.  Within each case page, the public will find a way to submit a tip anonymously, or send an email directly to investigators.

Maitland went missing after her shift as a dishwasher at the Black Lantern Inn; her car was found the next day at an abandoned house a mile away but not linked to her disappearance until days later.

There are currently 55 unsolved homicides listed and 35 long-term ongoing missing person cases in Vermont.  While some of these cases occurred in local jurisdictions, the state police remain committed to providing any assistance needed to local police agencies that lead those investigations.

The department has also updated its website, as part of an update of all Vermont government agencies and departments. The Vermont State Police recently completed and launched its site, along with all agencies within the Department of Public Safety.

The new website includes the latest information available about the state police, including employment and career opportunities, station contacts, commander information and portraits, special teams descriptions, and media content highlighting the state police. New imagery, including VSP-produced videos are available for viewing on the new site and a link to the latest press releases can be found on the home page.
