You might say it’s like finding a needle in a haystack, as family, friends, and complete strangers scoured ditches and bushes for clues in the mysterious disappearance of Lois Hanna, who was last seen 35 years ago.
“I mean, we’ve accepted that she’s not going to come bouncing in through the door. I mean, we realized that years ago,” said one of Lois’ four brother, Jim Hanna, who was a part of Monday’s search.
The 25-year-old Hanna has been missing since July 4, 1988. She was last seen leaving a homecoming dance in Lucknow, Ont.
Foul play is strongly suspected in her disappearance.
Tips about hearing a woman screaming for help, and a woman running in a nightgown between Lucknow and the Hanna home farm near Holyrood, Ont. that night have led a team of 40 volunteers to reignite the search for answers.
