Melanie I love you and miss you so much I think about you every minute of every day you are always on my mind. But so are the sob's who did something to you but don't you worry my dear sweet niece we will find out and we will never stop until we find the evil that did this to you and then we won't stop until they are punished as hard and as far as we can make sure that evil can be punished. Everyday I think we are one step closer to finding the answers but no matter if it takes the rest of my life or the rest of anyone else in this familys life we will always be looking for you. And soon God will show us the way because God is good and he will help us when he knows the time is right and he will also see that the evil that did something to you is sent straight to the depths of hell.
I love you honey
I'm from Dunbar, WV and even though I've never met Melanie or her family, I still feel like I know you all in some way. I look at the pictures on the website and read the new stories and keep wondering what happened to her. I cannot imagine what you all must be going through or the questions her kids must be asking. Sandra, you're right, the people who did this or know something about it and aren't talking will get what's coming to them. Hopefully, with all of the thoughts and prayers going out, you will all find answers soon.
Open letter to Jason: Jason, if you know like "alot of people" that Melanie had a drug habit, you owe it to her family to tell them which people knew about her drug dependency, and all about why you know what you know. One reason Melanie's case is growing cold is that people in possession of the facts are not talking. So give names and give dates and give circumstances. We know that Melanie was drug free at least until March of 2006, when she was (tragically) introduced to JD by someone she had met at her SPOKES training in Charleston. What do you know about the 90 days she was "with JD?" We suspect that by her 21st birthday she was using cocaine, because her "loving boyfriend," JD, gave her about 75 lines of coke in an 8 ball,(to sell or to use or both?) What more do you know about Melanie's drug involvement? In her last month with us, from her birthday until her disappearance, we suspect her relationship with JD was changing, we suspect she was not liking the things he was having her do. She even contacted your best friend ML at least once in July 2006, but he was once again an antagonist and not an ally in their brief encounter. Did ML tell you anything he had seen or heard? So lay off the self-pity, become part of the solution, and instead of teasing us with rumors, give us all the facts as you know them. Use initials or aliases or make up names, but lay out all the times, places, relationships and events as you know them. And especially, did you know Melanie personally and when was the last time you saw her? All the details about that last meeting, I know you will feel better by telling all the truth and nothing more, nothing less.
My heart goes out to Melanie's family and loved ones.

DEBI ITS OK WE ALL SAY THINGs,BUT GOD IS GOOD, ITS THE DIFFERENT STAGES WE ARE GOING THROUGH being 21 months today some can only imagine what its like,we are so mixed up and so confused i'm sure they would be same way in our position just keep praying Sandy
Well its the 19th again 21 months since my granddaughter has been missing, its been a long hard battle but we still not giving up, we still have hope that someone somewhere will find it in their heart to give us the answers we need, we need help someday it may be one of yours and then you'll understand what we've been going through we need the communtity as a whole to help and cry out about this and keep praying for the safe return OF our loved one of three little babies you just can't imagine what its like if you've never walked in these shoes or been down this road. MAY GOD BE WITH US AND HEAR OUR PRAYERS SANDY
I want to apologize for my last comment. I was angry and I said a few things that I should not have.
We, Melanie's family are desperate to find anything that we can that will lead us to what happened to Melanie. I admit when I read your first comment... I was extremely angry. I am sure that you can understand our rage when you posted your comment stating that Melanie neglected her motherly duties. I stayed with Melanie for quite some time and I witnessed first hand her motherly duties...she is a great mother. I do not care what you or anyone else says. Of course no one is perfect, and whoever claims to be is touched in the head. You claim to be such a good friend to ML. Do you honestly think that he is or ever was a perfect father to Ryan. I do not know ML very well, and mostly what I have heard about him is 3rd party information, but I can assure you that what I have heard is not good. Another thing… ML is in part responsible for what has happened to Melanie. Months prior to Melanie disappearing, I tried to get Melanie to come and live with me in Virginia and she could not do so because ML would not allow her to take Ryan out of WV. Further more, what I have heard about you is very disreputable as well… would you like for us to flash your dirty laundry for all to see? What I am trying to get at is... "Do not judge, or you too will be judged."
I really do not care if you are tired of hearing the same information. If you were in our situation you would also be shouting it from the rooftops for all to hear. If you were any kind of decent person and really wanted to find out the truth as you stated, you would try to understand that we have to keep Melanie’s story out there. If you do not want to read it…don’t. If you do not want to hear it on the News…change the station.
No, we are not saying that you know or are responsible for what happened to Melanie, just that from what you stated in your comment, you seem to know quite a bit about Melanie's situation when she disappeared. You may know more than you think you know. Sometimes the littlest things are the most important clues.
I pray that nothing ever happens to you or anyone that you care about to this magnitude because no one should ever have to go through this. I do not care what is in your past, you are still a person and someone loves you and will miss you (hopefully).
I am the mother of a missing daughter and I am extremely angry. I have a reason to be… what is your excuse?
JASON W. HOLSTEIN
I KNOW THAT NOONE IS TRYING TO SAY THAT I KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT MELANIE. I ONLY KNOW WHAT I'VE HEARD, AND RYAN IS THE ONLY CHILD THAT I EVER REALLY HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH, BECAUSE ML IS ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS. I HAVE WATCHED RYAN GROW SLOWLY, AND WHEN I SAID THAT I WAS TIRED OF HEARING ABOUT IT, I MEANT THAT THE NEWSPAPER, AND NEW STATIONS, ARE ALWAYS TRYING TO COVER THE STORY, AND IT BURNS ME UP THAT NO NEW NEWS HAS BEEN REPORTED. I KNOW ABOUT AS MUCH AS THE REST OF THE WORLD. AND ALOT OF PEOPLE KNEW SHE DID DRUGS, THAT MUCH WAS SOMEWHAT OBVIOUS AT TIMES. PLEASE DON'T TRY TO IMPLICATE ME IN THIS MATTER. I WANT TO FIND OUT THE TRUTH TOO.
Jason, how do you know it was over drugs? Did you use the same dealers and did you run into her at one of them or something? Do you know something you haven't told anyone? How do you know Melanie was in debt? Again, do you know something you haven't told anyone? And you only mention that Ryan is without a mother, what about Nathan and Hannah? Melanie is their mother as well as Ryans and they don't have her either.
You say Melanie was on a constant "quest" for drugs? Do you have proof? Why haven't you turned any of your information that you seem to be full of over to the police? What are you hiding?
And if you are so tired of hearing about all of this, why did you come to the website and post a message? Did somebody twist your arm? If you don't want to hear or read any of it, don't seek it. With your negative attitude and your sarcastic remarks, nobody wants to read your posts anyway.
The family of Melanie is not going to give up on the search for her and the search for the truth, whatever it may be. Her children need to know what happened to their mother and what was done to the person or persons who are responsible.
Leisa Metheny Wellington
I can't believe that almost 21 months have went by and we still know nothing more about Melanie's disappearence now than we did July 19 2006. I don't know how people can walk around with this on their hearts and not say anything. And you know people out there know probably people we see everyday or maybe even someone whom has written in here. I know that no one will stop until we get to the truth and I do mean never. I don't care who doesn't like it or gets sick of hearing about it. Melanie's family will scream from every mountain as loud as we can until the truth reveals itself and one day it will because the good Lord in heaven knows what has really happened to my neice. And we her family have lost a daughter, a sister, a niece, a granddaughter and most of all there are now 3 very beautiful children without their mother. So whoever you are that did thid you didn't just do this to Melanie you did this to everyone of who ever loved Melanie and we will keep on looking and searching and screaming until our last breaths. But in the end God does judge so be ready to take yur punishment because if you don't get it here on earth the Good Lord will see that you get your punishment when your day of judgement comes aand forgive me Lord but I hope that day comes soon. I love you Mel and I will never stop looking for you
Dear Leisa via Dana:Please examine the following posted by a Jason H: "(neglected her) motherly responsibilities in her constant quests for drugs. As for JD., you can get the feel bad for me because I was questioned for the disapearance of my whatever she was to you off the roof man. You were some of the reason that she was in debt anyways." It seems THIS Jason knows Mel was on drugs, that she was in debt and that JD was part of the reason. Fits into our abduction for debt scenario. How is he connected to Mel? Bill M
I got your note. I am still praying for your sweet Melanie to be found. And for God to give you and your family the strength to live each day. I have printed out fliers eventhough I am in SC. Maybe someone will see it and say a prayer for her. Don't give up hope.
Here is a hug from me (((HUG)))
Billie-A Christian mother with a tender heart.
Jason this is Melanies grandmother and no I'll never give up looking and one day I will know, sounds 2 me like you know ML really well as well as Melanie or why mould you be the godfather of RYan whom by the way ML acts as though Ryan doesnt have a brother or sister its not bad enough that Melanie is missing hes got no except the ones that didnt claim him till he was born then run down sissionville and buy a house at retirement age and make Melanie as miserable as possible over Rhan for 4 years hes got no good coming to him either or his parents whom take care of Ryan while he does anything and everything which everyone knows but what their doin to Rhan they will pay the price and i dont feel sorry for anyone that knows anything and doesnt talk cuz the Good Lord is going take care of them that much i do know as for JD i dont give a hoot about him and all his either theres no innonence there either. Actually Ryan will pay the price cuz their making him into another Michael which is NO GOOD and YOU R SO RIGHT THE DRUGS ARE RAGING AND WE DONT HAVE NEAR ENOUGH PARENTS OUT HERE MAKING THNGS HAPPEN AND THE ONES DOING IT JUST GET BY. AND EVERYONE ONE WILL HEAR FROM ME AS LONG AS I GOT ENOUGH AIR TO TALK.Melanie I LOVE YOU Ryan, Nathan and Hannah
Melanie I still think about you, and your children often. I think about Sandy also she loves you so much!! Sandy, Jimmy, and Donna I know how much you all care about Melanie! You all are in my thoughts and prayers. God bless. *Ceaira*
Jason W. Holstein
I am getting tired of hearing about the whole thing, my Godson is without his mother, over some drugs, and I lost alot of time in my life because of them too, but I haven't lost my life. People please stay off the drugs, and keep your kids away from them too. To the family of Melanie, I say this, please don't ever give up on your search for the truth on what really happened to Ryan's mother. Keep your head up, but also realize that she did neglect some of her motherly responsibilities in her constant quests for drugs. As for JD., you can get the feel bad for me because I was questioned for the disapearance of my whatever she was to you off the roof man. You were some of the reason that she was in debt anyways. Anyways, may peace be with you all that cared for this young girl, and may her soul rest in peace, wherever she may be in this world or the next life.
I think it is a travesty that nothing has been found in regards to Melanie. This was a beautiful woman with 3 beautiful children and her whole life ahead of her. It saddens me to think that these children will grow up without their mother. There is bound to be a few people (if not more) who knows what happened to her. If you do, don't be afraid to tell! Just think how you will affect her children and family and those that love her. I would go crazy if I didn't know where my son was or who he was with or if he was still alive. No parent should have to go through that! EVER! Melanie's family are in my prayers and I pray to God that she is found...safe and soon!
How about everyone go to the online news sites (ABC FOX ect....)and post Melanies web page in the comments sections. Maybe esp on the articles related to Stacy Peterson. She is also a missing mother. On many of these News sites you can also email the editors directly. Just an idea. Anything to get her in the media.
Thoughts and prayers are with Melanie and her faimly.
I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU PLEASE DEAR LORD GIVE US STRENGTH AND PROTECT MELANIE UNTIL YOU LET US GET HER, THANK YOU FOR YOUR ANGELS PROTECTING HER IN JESUS NAME WE ASK AMEN.
I think its a shame a few people obviosly know what has happened to Melanie.Cowards.Id like to know what the people on the chat log know,it would be gratifying to serve some private justice on the perpetrators before turning them in.Is it just me or does it seem the SD is more interested in getting on TV before solving the case,I could be wrong,just my take on it.Prayers to the children and family.
WHO WOULVA EVER DREAMED THAT THERE ARE SO MANY WICKED PEOPLE OUT HERE IN THIS WORLD HERE WE HAVE A MOTHER WITH 3 CHILDREN AND ALL YOU EVIL PEOPLE THAT KNOW SOMETHING AND WONT HELP MANY YOU FOREVER ROT IN HELL. THE GOOD LORD IS GONNA TAKE CARE OF EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU
I LOVE YOU MELANIE I"m still looking for you I"LL never stop I just hope and Pray that your ok. WE ALL LOVE YOU YOUR WHOLE FAMILY
I want you to know that each day we are all doing something to try to find you and bring you home. You are very much missed and I will never give up hope that you will be found safe. You are my last thought when I finally fall asleep and my first when I wake. I awaken many times each night desperately praying to God that he shines his light and guides us to you. One day my prayer will be answered and we will get the call that tells us you are coming home…what a glorious day that will be...
Dear Lord, surround Melanie with protective angels and please hear our prayers for her safe return. Grace us and each law enforcement officer with wisdom, strength and endurance to find the answers we desperately seek to bring her home and nothing be overlooked. Dear Lord, weigh heavy on the hearts of those who hold secrets so that they will come forward, and to those that do not, be cursed with the endless cries of Melanie’s children for eternity. Dear Lord, hear our cries and let us not be blinded by tears that we can still be able to see your face. Have mercy on our family, Heavenly Father, in the Name of Jesus, I pray, Amen...
I LOVE YOU MELANIE ME AND DONNA TOOK NATHAN AND HANNAH DOWN TO SEE RYAN I TOOK RYAN SOME PICTURES OF U AND THE KIDS HES SO GROWN UP HIM AND NATHAN JUST LOOKED AT EACH OTHER THEY COULDNT HARDLY BELIEVE THEIR EYES WE GOING TO CHUCKY CHEESE NEXT, OF COARSE HANNAH WAS ALL OVER TALKING WITH EVERYONE ONE AND ASKING LOTS OF QUESTIONS MICHAEL WAS REAL NICE AND WE REALLY THANK GOD FOR THE CHILDREN BEING TOGETHER GRANNY
I hope you come home soon. I'm a Criminal Justice major, and I've been studying the case. I am praying for you and your family.
I LOVE YOU MELANIE...RYAN...NATHAN...AN D HANNAH
As I was reading the Sunday Gazette today, with a story of Melanie's family trying their best to cope, I am amazed and beyond pissed that we have daily media alerts to missing people and crimes commited against women from far away states and seem to know more about the facts of these out of state cases than one here at home. What makes Melanie less worthy of media coverage? Are we, the members of the upper Kanawha valley not as important? This is a small community where we pride ourselves on caring for our neighbor. There is no reason that the investigation should be at a stand still, makes you wonder what anyone in law enforcement is doing to help this family. There is an answer out there, and I challenge law enforcement to take this serious and not give up. I hope that everyone responsible for what they have done or have failed to do are tormented by the faces of 3 motherless children all of their days. Someone please come forward, this is something that we can all be affected by, there is a monster in our mist. Pray that your daughter is not the next to disapear without a trace. God be with this family. I know that the family has their hands full, and the commmunity needs to be more involved, this is one of our own. I may not know any of these people, but they are in need of a helping hand from all of us. Maybe a march or a day to celebrate Melanie could bring some media attention. I have given up hope that the perpatrators even have a heart to feel any remorse, but none of us escapes our sins forever. We need a public outcry, these are small loving communities, let's at the very least support this family with our thoughts,prayers and a day of our time, remember, it could be your family member the next time. We should all be outraged! First pray and then act on God's guidance. I ask the family members to pick a beautiful spring day and make it Melanie Day, we can get local schools, churches and businesses involved. Please email me if I can be of any help.
A loving mother of two and a caring human being,
I have to agree with Melanie's family there are others out there who can try an find out what happen to Melanie.It's a shame that no one with help this family.If anyone out there has a heart do what's right an help this family to find her.Think about those little babies who need their mother.May God Bless you.You will be in my thought's an Prayers.
WELL IM SO IMPRESSED THAT AFTER 19 MONTHS THE KCSO FINALLY GET THIS TO AMW EVERYTHING IN THERE IS ONLY WHAT THE BOYFRIEND SAID MELANIE NEVER TOLD ANY FAMILY MEMBER THAT SHE WAS GOING TO THESE PLACES AFTER ALL THE CHECKING WE DID SHE WAS ALL READY TO START SCHOOL ON AUG 2ND. NOW WHAT DID U SOBS DO WITH MY GRANDDAUGHTER.....SANDY
My thoughts are with your family at this time. I hope for their sake that you turn up soon. It is hard to keep the faith when something like this happens, please keep hold of this.
OH PLEASE HEAVENLY FATHER GIVE ME STRENGTH
I LOVE YOU MELANIE
My prayers are with you that Melanie will return safetly home. She is beautiful and has beautiful little kids. This really hit home for me because I'm a 22 year old, single mother of two little boys. I added your myspace page and I will do everything I can to help. God be with you and yours,
Melanie, not a day goes by when I am not woundering what happened and who in the world knows something. This is ridiculous!! The Kanawha County Sheriffs are no help in this case at all! They said that the conversation on the computer a long time ago was nothing. That's a bunch of bull!! Someone needs to face the facts!!
Be a decent human being and go to someone and talk about it. Even if you are to remain anonamous. That's the right thing to do. But when the time comes, and it is way past time, we will find out something. We her family need closure!! We miss and love you dearly!!
God Bless You Melanie wherever you are!!
I live in Huntington and had heard nothing about this. Please have the TV news do a follow up on her.
It might not help but it sure wouldn't hurt.
My prayers and thoughts go out to this family.
Well its now been 568 days since I last saw my beautiful granddaughter it was Tuesday July the 18th early morning around 9 I took the kids home after a nights
sleep over with granny. Melanie had just taken a shower she had on a robe and a towel wrapped around her head and still looked so beautiful.....Little did I know I would never see her again now going into the 19th month where r u MR. Walsh..Montel...Greta...FBI. ..Nancy Grace...where is someone..... anyone to help us we have to have answers . Prayers are powerful PLEASE HEAVENLY FATHER PUT THIS ON THE HEART OF SOMEONE SO HEAVY THAT THEY CANT BARE IT I ASK IN JESUS NAME.....AMEN FOR ALL THAT ARE MISSING. MAY GOD BLESS YOU BETH ON YOUR JOURNEY FOR NATALIE
I am begging for any help that anyone thinks that they could possibly provide to us. Every effort that we have made for help has always come to an abrupt halt usually by the hands of the West Virginia, Kanawha County Sheriffs office who are handling Melanie's case. We have hired private investigators that took our money and stopped working the case when they were told to stay out of it. Also, family friends who had law enforcement backgrounds were also told to not get involved. Organizations that we have contacted for help have gotten the run around by the sheriff's office by not returning their calls. We were told by one detective that he was playing phone tag with America's Most Wanted!!!! If it were their family member I am sure that they would not accept that as doing enough?
Does any of this make sense? Why would the Sheriff's office not want help if THEY cannot solve this case? Why do they not want anyone else involved? It angers me how the press picks and chooses who gets all of the news coverage. Is a young mother of 3 from West Virginia less important!!?? It is going on 19 months and we know nothing more than we did that heart wrenching day in July when my beautiful daughter fell off the face of the earth. It breaks my heart to think of her 3 lovely children growing up and not knowing how hard she worked to raise and keep them together.
Someone knows something!!! We will never stop until we find out what happened to her.
Any help is appreciated!! Thoughts, prayers, kind words, advice…anything,
Leisa Metheny Wellington
I can't believe that all this time has gone by and we still know nothing and I can't believe that all this time has gone by a we still have no help but the Kanawha County Sheriffs This is absolutely crazy everyday you can turn on the tv and see all over the news on every channel where someone has gone missing but we get turned away by everyone we ask for help......... WHY?????????? That is the million dollar question why can't we get any help? What has happened to my niece? We will find out even if we have to do it on our own WE WILL FIND OUT

Heavenly father please oh please put and end to all this pain and suffering and allow us to bring Melanie home. She has three beautiful little children who are suffering from the loss of their mother. Please dear Lord put an end to this we beg of you. The pain that comes from lossing a loved one and not knowing what has happened to them is absolutely the worst pain I have ever had to suffer and no one can understand until they have walked a mile, a day, even just a minute in these shoes of anyone in Melanie's family. Dear Lord please I am begging of you please for her children's sake put and end to this suffering and torture.
I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH MELANIE.....NO I WILL NEVER GIVE UP HOPE...I AM OUT HERE EVERYDAY DOING OR TALKING TO SOMEONE...I KNOW THE GOOD LORD WONT LET THIS KEEP GOING ON...EVERYONE PLEASE KEEP UP THE PRAYERS.....THATS THE MOST POWERFUL THING WE HAVE LOVE YOU.......................GR ANNY

The pain the suffering the sorrow you low down bunch of scum i hope how soon you get yours. Sandy
Becky (1st cousin)
Melanie is one of my many first cousins. We basically grew up together. Living with her when we were very young. Only one year apart in age, we were much like sisters. Miss you soo much!! I will always have endless love for her and all of my family!!!
Sometimes you just don't know who your TRUE friends are!
Fake friends: Will leave you behind if that is what the crowd is doing
True friends: Will kick the whole crowds butt that left you
SOMEONE KNOWS SOMETHING!! To say such horriffic details as to what supposedly happened to my cousin. It is truely fucked up to sit there not saying a word about what you know and just let all of her family be so emotionally disstressed because of what you did. To those who know something about Melanies disapperance or about the conversation on the internet, I suggest that learn what a true friend would do.
Open your mouth and just let someone know about what happened to Melanie, a sweet, honest, would do anything for anybody, mother of three.
Don't be so cold hearted!!!!
I LOVE YOU MELANIE. Hope u choke on your turkey I dont get 2 have a happy thanksgiving thanks 2 u idiots out there
I just want to ask the world why we can't get any help from anyone been 16 months yesterday...We've contacted Americans most wanted... Montel .. Sylvia Brown.. FBI... You name them weve contacted them.Someone gotta help16 months no Melanie no body now how much since does that make.
Well this is for all y scum out there Michael..Step..Jarrett..Troy ..Chris....Susan..Jason,Jeff ery..Crystal..Tina....Chandl er..Andy..I'm around always will be come on up lets here ur feeble story u low life good for nothing may God take care of each and everyone i just pray everyday it wont be long.
Well here we are 16 months later and we know NOTHING more than we did on July 19th 2006 when we last saw Melanie. No one, nobody has come forward at all and tried to do anything to help my sweet niece. She was such a good friend to so many people and no one has done anything to help us in anyway. It's like everyone has just forgotten all about my sweet niece. Well we will never forget nor will we ever stop until the truth is told to the whole world. And one day we will find out the truth and all her so called friends can just stay away as they have done these last 16 months that we have been searching high and far for Melanie. One day God will come forth with the truth and then we will not stop again until justice is served. I love you Melnaie and I miss you and I will never stop until you are brought home to all of us who love you and miss you.
I LOVE YOU
When I woke up today, I realized quickly that this day is the same as yesterday and all the yesterdays for 16 months ...
I am without my precious daughter!!
How does this happen? How were we picked to become a statistic? How can others live with themselves holding secrets, keeping silent while our family crys and begs for mercy, answers, and the truth? I fear never seeing her again, yet, I refuse to let go of the hope that I will.
I am unable to put into words the depth of pain and anger that we go through on a daily basis knowing that someone out there knows something... friends especially!!! Even ones that Melanie considered "BEST FRIEND" have not lifted one finger to help or to even offer a kind word!! You know when Melanie calls you "FRIEND"... she means it in every sense of the word. How can you live with yourselves??!!
Yes, you can say that I am bitter, but who are you to judge me... until you have walked on day in my shoes?
I love you Melanie!!!!
Well its the 19th again 16 months later...for all u so called friends that havent even wrote in here or called that were all users may u lose everyone and everything that means anything to you with friends like you we need no enemies you all know who you are and if you dont i can spell it out may u rot in hell
I love YOU Melanie SANDY
I LOVE YOU SO MUCH MELANIE....my heart just feels so empty please heavenly Father just give us a sign or show us the way. love granny

I LOVE YOU SO MUCH AND I KNOW GOD WILL SHOW US THE WAY AND I WILL BE RIGHT THERE WHEN HE DOES

An After Loss Creed
An After Loss Creed by Jill Engler
Please be gentle with me for I am grieving.
The sea I swim in is a lonely one, and the shore seems miles away.
Waves of despair numb my soul as
I struggle through each day.
My heart is heavy with sorrow.
I want to shout and scream and repeatedly ask, "WHY?"
At times, my grief overwhelms me,
and I weep bitterly, so great is my loss.
Please don't turn away or tell me to move on with my life.
I must embrace my pain before I can begin to heal.
Companion me through my tears and sit with me in loving silence.
Honor where I am in my journey, not where you think I should be.
Listen patiently to my story. I may need to tell it over and over again.
It's how I begin to grasp the enormity of my loss.
Nurture me through the weeks and months ahead.
Forgive me when I seem distant and inconsolable.
A small flame still burns within my heart,
and shared memories may trigger both laughter and tears.
I need your support and understanding.
There is no right or wrong way to grieve. I must find my own path.
Please, will you walk beside me?
Leisa Metheny Wellington
God is good, God is always good and God is watching, and he is watching all of you and he will know what has happened. And one he will show us the light and the way.

Leisa Metheny Wellington
I LOVE YOU MEL. I never in my wildest dreams would have ever thought something like this would happen. I am so lost as to what to do any more. But I promise you I will not go away I will keep on until we find the truth because the truth is out there. Everyone loves you and misses you so much and the not knowing is such tourture but someday we will know.
I love you
thinking of you!
Melanie i love u so much...whatever has happened we are gonna find out...i can fell it in my heart the good lord is gonna reveal it dont know when but not gonna be long....someone will pay the price......the babies fathers gonna pay also cause down the road in a few years they gonna have a lot of questions....what did u do to find out about my mother...and yes I am leaving them information about what they didnt do to help find you....after all you are their mother and that should be the # one thing they do...instead of not keeping the kids in contact with each other which....and not even answering the phone so i can see the kids...their day is coming too
Leisa Metheny Wellington
I love you Mel and I miss you and you are always on my mind. And to you people out there who know what happened one day you will get yours the Lord doesn't work that way. So I hope it is eating you alive everday second of your life knowing that you have done something to my sweet niece and have taken a mother away from her 3 babies. May you rot in hell
I love you Mel and I will never stop
Leisa Metheny Wellignton
I had a dream last night that I walked into Granny's house and there you were sitting at the kitchen table. Oh God how I wish that dream would come true. Melanie Renee I will never ever stop until someone somewhere tells us what has happened to you. And no matter what I will make sure that your 3 little babies know everthing about you that I know because I know they were your life and they will need to know their Mommy no matter what has happened. You fought long and hard to keep those babies together and now we've got to keep up the fight for you.
I LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH
AND I MISS YOU MORE THAN WORDS CAN EVER SAY
I LOVE YOU MELANIE you are my prayers every night. I miss you so much my heart is just broken, nothing will ever be the same until we have you back or have some answers that i know were gonna get you are my life so just know that i'm on this everyday.
My prayers continue that one day soon you will find out what has become of your precious, young girl. I can't even imagine what you are going through, as I have 4 beautiful daughters myself and the thought of losing any of them, especially not knowing where they are are, is just too sickening to think about.
To the person who KNOWS what happened and where Melanie is: Come forward and tell the truth, as the truth will set you free. Surely this knowledge must haunt you. The good LORD will protect you from the one who may threaten you and yours. Do the right thing, by Melanie, by her family and friends, and for the sake of Jesus. Think of what her parents and precious babies are going through. Then ask yourself, "What if it we're me in their shoes?" How could you live with the "not knowing"?. I lived it for 25 years and it's a nightmare that will haunt you til' the day you die. Please come forth and allow this family to give their little girl a proper goodbye. The LORD will shine down upon you for doing what you know is right and you can be free of the burden of knowledge you surely must bare. In the Name of Jesus, do what you know is right and set yourself free........Please, send Melanie home!
my thoughts and prayers are with you all!I believe that everything that goes in the wash comes out of the wash sometime.So just keep your faith! It makes me mad that someone knows what happend and wont tell but nothing is kept in secret!!Ill be praying for her safe return
HEAVENLY FATHER I ASK THAT YOU REVEAL THE WHERABOUTS OF MELANIE RENEA METHENY AND THAT YOU GIVE THIS FAMILY THE STRENGH TO OVERCOME THE HURT THAT HER DISAPPEARANCE HAS CAUSED IN JESUS'HOLY NAME I PRAY
Leisa Metheny Wellington
I would like to thank everyone for their kind thoughts and prayers, somehow this seems to keep things alive for us. It has now been 414 days since we last saw or heard from Mel and the pain does not lessen it gets worse as everday goes by. I know that someone out there knows and I pray to God everyday that they will come forward and end this terrible nightmare. We need to know what has happened and her 3 small children really need their mother or at least answers as to what happened on that dreadful day in July 2006. I keep praying that somehow Mel will come home safe and sound to us. I will never lose faith that somehow we will find you Melanie. But this I know for sure we will never stop until we do find answers. I love you and miss you so very much Mel.
Tiny weeny Metheny. Melanie I really can't believe that something like this has happened. I am still in denile and it has been a year. We grew up together. We had our differences, but when it came down to it we were always best friends. I know as we grew older we led seperate lives. However, I never forget all of our childhood memories. Love and miss you very much. I am praying for you and your family every night.
My heart goes out to the family, if anyone understands the pain of a missing loved one, is another family going through the same thing. I live in Hamilton,Ontario,Canada, and my son has been missing for 18mths, way to long. He has also left behind a young daugher, who he lived and breathed for.
We are miles apart but please know my heart, prayers and thoughts are with each and everyone of you, and know I am only an e-mail away if you should ever need to talk or vent.
Praying for you all here in Ontario, Canada
Prayers and much love
Mother of Missing William (Billy)Mason
I LOVE YOU MELANIE.....the tears just fall everytime i get in here and read which is daily but it helps to know everyone is out there and they write in and lift you up in prayer it keeps our faith up also there are good people left in this world among all the evil. Granny
Nothing is more precious than the love we have for our loved ones. We live for each day we can spend with our families. When one of our members is missing it leaves us with an empty feeling.
If anyone knows anything about Melanie please come forward and let it be known. Imagine how you would feel if it was one of your family members that was missing and you had that empty feeling.
God bless Melanie and her family. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
I hope something happens positive soon enough. I cannot imagine what a mother goes through. I can't say anything really at all. I'm speechless. Non the less I am blessed to be in touch with your family and hopefully help spread the word about Melanie online. Please write anytime.
Love & Blessings,
Kelly Neddo (Austins best friend)

Everywhere I go and every girl I see that is even close to looking like you I pray that it will one day turn out to be you. I will never stop praying or looking for you EVER.
I LOVE YOU SO MUCH
I came across your webpage while reading an article online about missing people. I found Melanie's story very touching and tragic and I felt compelled to let you know your family, especially Melanie's children, are in my thoughts and prayers. I wish you all the best and I am so sorry for the pain you've had to endure.
I'm so sorry about your niece. I was looking through the missing people's when I came across her picture. I didn't know her or your family but was reading about her, when I read the email that was posted I was raged! I can't beleive that their are people talking about what happened to her and won't go to the police because they have kids. All I can say is if they just keep talking about it out loud, eventually someone is going to slip and I hope they catch the guy who did it. And for the people who know about it and arn't saying anything... Hell is were they will end up.
Michael Andrew Lepsis RN
I wish all the best. I looked at her site today as I started MSN. Keep hope and faith in gods heart for her. all the best
Every time I step foot out the door, I see your face in someone else's. Sometimes it brings a smile to my face but other times it sends me over the edge. I miss you so much!!!!
Please, please, please anyone that knows anything come forward. If you have heard anything, seen anything, or suspect something or someone...I beg you to come forward no matter how insignificant you feel it is...There is no such thing when it involves your own missing daughter.
my thoughts and prayers are with you.
I am always here for you.
caseys mom, terri
I saw this while looking on the State Police website. A young boy is missing in our area as well. I will keep your family in my prayers that one day you will have the answers that you need. Take care and God Speed!

All my thoughts and prayers are with you and hope you find some peace and closure to all the pain you've endured over the past year. Know your page has reached all across the country, including Georgia where I live now.
I pray for your family and for Melanie's children. I cannot imagine the pain this situation is causing everyone involved. Please know that your thought of and so is she every day by many people ...strangers all over the world who know that this is such a horrible thing for you all to go through.....God bless your family
I hope you get some answers and some closure soon in order to get some peace.
Oh PLEASE HEAVENLY FATHER WE HAVE ALL THE FAITH IN YOU AND YOU ALONE WE KNOW YOU KNOW ALL THE ANSWERS I DONT KNOW THE REASONS WE DONT KNOW BUT I PRAY EVERYNIGHT AND I KNOW DEEP DOWN YOUR GONNA REVEAL THIS TO US AND BURDEN THE ONES WHO'S CAUSED ALL THE PAIN ENDLESS NIGHTS OF SLEEP WORRY AND THE CHILDREN NEED THEIR MOTHER SO MUCH AND SHE NEEDS THEM THEY WERE HER LIFE

I love you Melanie,
I COULD NOT IMAGINE THE PAIN YOUR FAMILY MUST BE FEELING SINCE MELANIE HAS BEEN MISSING. I THINK THE WEB SITE IS A WONDERFUL IDEA. I JUST STUMBLED ON IT WHILE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING ELSE ON THE WV STATE POLICE WEB SITE. I PRAY THAT THE SITE WILL HELP TO FIND MELANIE,IT REALLY MAKES HER A PERSON AND NOT JUST A FACE. I LIVE AT MATEWAN WV. AND I WILL TELL ALL MY FRIENDS ABOUT THE SITE, THE MORE PEOPLE THAT KNOW THE BETTER THE CHANCES THAT SOMEONE MAY BE ABLE TO HELP IN SOME WAY.

I visit this site everyday and each day I read every posting. I am unsure what I am expecting find....answers? Although I am so thankful for all the well wishes and prayers, I always leave this site disappointed. Maybe I am hoping for a miracle.
I had a dream of you last night. You walked in the door as if nothing had ever happened....you were the most beautiful thing I had ever seen, but before I could hug you...I woke up. I tried and tried to go back to sleep to see you again but couldn't.
I love and miss you!!!!

I will never stop until we find out what has happened to my cousin Melanie. Melanie is such a good person she is the last person in the world who deserved for something bad to happen to her. I am making it my life to find out who what and why something would ever happen to such a nice wonderful person. Melanie never did anything to hurt anyone she is such a caring person and always there when you needed her. And her 3 little kids do not desrve to have to live a life without their Mom.
I love you Mel and I will not stop until we find you.
Your cousin Aaron
Melanie has been one of my most favorite people since the day I was born.It is very hard for me to think or to talk about her missing because it hurts my heart so much. I miss Melanie so much everyday. Just the thought that someone could do something mean to my beautiful sweet cousin makes me crazy. I hope and pray to God to send her home safe to us.
I love you and miss you Melanie
your cousin Chaz
Leisa Metheny Wellington
I love you so much Mel and you are so very missed by everyone who ever knew you. It's like the light has gone out of life since you disappeared. You are on my mind every minute of eveyday and I will never stop hoping and praying that somehow you will come home safe to us.

James Metheny 4th
Melanie, I still remember the last time I seen you, You were crying in my arms about prissy because she had died. It is so hard for me to talk about you because i love you so much. I am just glad i got the chance to tell you i love you the last time i seen you. I am always thinking about u I dont like to talk about it because it brings tears to my eyes, but sometimes that cant be helped. I just hope and pray that I will see my big sister again somday and that its not in a bad way, You will always be in my heart Melanie i think of you everyday
heavenly father i pray that u send ur angels to find melanie and to bring her home
im prayin for u baby everyday and i will never give up love ya
Thank you God for your angels watching over Melanie and her 3 children
Please know that Melanie, her children and her family are being lifted up in prayer. I pray for her safe return to her 3 beautiful children. I cannot imagine the pain but prayer that you have answers soon and that include a wonderful reunion. Blessings to you.
Thanks to all of you for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers during our time of grief. This past year has been unbearable but with the thoughtfulness of each of you we gained emotional and spiritual strength to make it through.
Our warmest regards,
The Metheny Family
I pray for answers, and pray for your family.
James Metheny 3rd
Im melanie's father n everyday i pray that god would help me to find out what happened to her. Her children are the losers Jesus gave a very stern warning to anyone that would hurt little children and that is that they would wish they would never have been born.
My prayers and thoughts are with Melanie and her family.
The Family of Bernadette Stevenson Caruso (missing from Baltimore,Md 1986) Wants to let you know that we know/share your pain.We send our Prayers out to you and for Melanies' Safe Return.Please go to your Detective and have your Family DNA samples collected NOW! If You have trouble with this matter;Please email me email@example.com.GodBless!
I am so so sorry for the grief and sorrow you all are enduring as you wait for word of what has become of your beautiful Melanie. Although my grandfather was missing for 40 years and the "not knowing" was a never ending void I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy, the loss of a child is always the worst. My prayers and beliefs go out to the family and loved ones of this beautiful young mother. Keep your faith. It will see you through. Believe that she will be found, as that is the only thing that found my missing grandpa. Never give up hope. The LORD is good for those who BELIEVE! Hold your head up high and know that He is in control and in due time, through your faithfulness in Him, He will bring Melanie back home. He loves you so and hurts the same as you. He does not wish to see you in such pain. Seek Him and His wisdom, and one fine day, He will reveal the truth to you and set you free of your pain. This I promise you, as one who's been there and used the power and belief of prayer, thus recieving results. The Devil is going to attack you and make you believe you will never find Melanie. Don't fall for it. Just keep believing in Him and His power and soon, Melanie will be back home to those who love her so. A friend in Christ.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time.

We extend our deeoest Sympathy on your situation.

Melanie, if y9ou read this please contct your home, aunt, anyone and let them knowhow you are and where you are.
Prayers and--- I cant imagine the pain as you wait and wait and have no answers. My heart aches for you and your whole family in this long vigil. My love and sympathy go out to all of you.
Hugs & Prayers for all of you
To Melanie's family
my heartfelt compassion for your long and sad
journey without Melanie. But I want to
take this time to write to the two young people who shared that chat conversation with you, her family.
That the tw of you had that conversation, acknowledging that Melanie would have
stood up for either of you had her fate been yours is the greatest indication that you both know what is the right thing to do. If God forbid harm has come to Melanie while you did not bring that harm upon her by your silence you
you are condoning the actions of those who may have harmed her. By your silence you are aiding any guilty
person(s). You surely feel the guilt.
In this past year you have had milestones in your life, a birthday, perhaps you have fallen in love, graduated school, enjoyed favorite music, parties, all those things that
occupy the young. You have been able to
love and hold your children, protect them, guide them, enjoy them. Melanie has been robbed of those joys. And sadder still Melanies babies have been robbed of all that ONLY a mother can
provide her babies. They will grow up with the agony of not knowing what happened to her and worse they will live in the agony of knowing that there
are persons who know and did not care enough to do their part in ending this
Not for Melanies sake, for her families sake, or even for her children's sake although they all surely deserve whatever justice can be afforded them, but for your own sakes, for your children's sake,
you must stand up and tell what you know. It is the only way you will be free of this guilty secret that I am sure torments you. It is not enough to say I want to but........You must find the courage and the strength to stand up and be accountable. If you don't the
ghosts of your past will be your torment, the self loathing that comes from the conflict of battling conscience
will never give you rest. look into the
eyes of your own child(ren)see the trust they have in you that shines back at you. It is that which is your strength.
Let go of the pretense that the police
can not and will not find her, let go of the pretense that those who may have brought her to harm can not be held accountable. Let the police put the puzzle together just provide for them
the piece of the puzzle that may be missing.
There is a saying I can not remember at the moment who said it, but it is a quote that goes like this. "all that is
neccessary for bad men to commit evil is for good men to do nothing". In your
hand is the key to unlock peace and justice for Melanie and her family, turn the key and be free in ways you have yet to imagine.
I pray that you find the strength to
stand up and be that good man (woman)
that shines the light on evil. It is for your sake that you must NOW choose
to relieve yourself of being complicit in a crime by keeping the secret. No you did not do anything to harm Melanie, but your silence is harm. Your
silence brings you into a pact with the guilty. Silent no more. Today this day
is enough. Treat this as you would want to be treated if something similiar befell your family. What is done in the dark does always come to the light. Better for you to bring the light, I will be praying for you to reach deep down and find the strength you need to
do what you know is right. I will keep praying until I learn that you have come forward. I will pray that you will soon know the peace of being true to your own convictions. I promise that you will then know what it is like to feel whole.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
I am now and will continue sending up good thoughts and prayers for her to be found, and for your family. Lots of love and gental ((((HUGS))) to you all.
My prayers are with you. Each day must seem so long to you and your family. Don't give up hope. One never knows the future, may yours have happiness at the end if this ordeal.
My son is gone forever, it has been 15 years the 11th of this month.
May your Melanie return to you soon.
God Bless You
Cries Of A Missing Child
In my thoughts and prayers.
My family and I are praying for you and your family. May God help you thru everything. God Bless you.
I love you Melanie and there is emptiness in each of us that can never be filled because of your absence. I can not bare the fact that I may never see your smiling face again. You have brought so much joy into our lives and we will never be whole again until we find you. Every night I pray that the next day will be the day that we find you, but each day passes and every night I pray the same prayer.
I know that there is someone out there that knows something and I beg that you come forward and tell what you know. I plead that there is someone out there that knows the difference between right, wrong, good and evil. And to those who will not come forward, One day you will have to stand before the Lord and be judged for this. Will this secret be worth it?
We are stuck in this endless pain of not knowing and unless someone comes forward, I do not see an end to our grief. I/we need the truth, and my Daughter deserves the truth. That’s all that I ask.
I love you Melanie,
A sad anniversary is marked today...my best to the family.

I pray that God will bring justice to the people or person that is responsible for the dissappearance of my daughter and that that person or people be brought to justice for harming my daughter...Jesus said however whosoever shall hurt a child the same shall wish that he had never been born they will be tortured.

It's been a year today and we still have no Melanie. Someone out there knows what's going on and need to tell police. We will never stop looking for Melanie, or seeking justice. We love you, Melanie and you will not be forgotten. Those responsi ble will be brought to justice if it takes the rest of my life.

BUT I WILL NEVER STOP NOR WILL THE REST OF MELANIES FAMILY UNTIL WE KNOW WHAT HAPPENED THAT WEDNESDAY JULY 19 2006 AND WE WILL NOT STOP UNTIL SOMEONE IS PUNISHED FOR THE LOSS THAT THEY HAVE CAUSED FOR SO MANY OF US BECAUSE EVERYONE WHO KNEW MELANIE LOVED HER SHE WS JUST THAT KIND OF PERSON SO VERY LOVEABLE. IF IT TAKES UNTIL THE DAY THAT I TAKE MY LAST BREATHE I WILL NOT STOP UNTIL I KNOW THE TRUTH AND WHO EVER DID THIS GETS THE PUNISHMENT THEY DESERVE. I KNOW THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO MELANIE AND I DON'T KNOW HOW THEY LAY DOWN AT NIGHT AND SLEEP WITH SOMETHING LIKE THIS ON THEIR MIND. SOMEONE KNOWS AND ALL IT TAKES IS ONE PERSON TO COME FORWARD TO HELP US... JUST ONE PERSON....PLEASE IF YOU HAVE ANY CONSCIENCE AT ALL PLEASE HELP US BRING MELANIE HOME.
MELANIE WE ALL LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU SO VERY VERY MUCH. WE WILL MAKE SURE THAT YOUR MEMORY LIVES ON FOREVER I LOVE YOU AUNT LEISA
My heart and prayers go out for Melanie and her family,mostly her children.May god help find the person who is responsible for her missing. GOD BLESS YOU ALL
I've been keeping up with Melanie's disappearance in the news and i just wanted to let the Metheny family know my heart and prayers are with them.
I have a 22 year old daughter and a 32 year old daughter which are my life. I cannot imagine the pain and fear of one of them missing. I am so so sorry for the pain and stress your family is under at this time and I pray you find your daughter and she is safe and unharmed. She has 3 beautiful children and they need their mommy home. Good luck with your search and continue to pray she will be found soon and returned to the loving arms of her family. Keep your hope she will be found safe and remember miracles do happen. God be with you and your family through this terrible ordeal.
We just watched the evening news and were reminded about Melanie being missing. A mother, daughter, sister . . . we cannot imagine. We would like to offer our thoughts and prayers for you all.
Iam sorry for you'r dougher's disperances. I hope and wish the police will find who ever did this. I don't know Melanie or any about you guys.I wish she wouldd retarn home soon so you guys can be a family again.
Love and prayers your's truley Lora

Sandy if you read this just want you to know that I am thinking of you and your family and I pray that this nightmare ends very soon. You have my email now contact me I live in Roane County now. Love and Prayers Doreen
Melanie. I pray that the most current information is wrong even though it would mean closure. Although I didn't get to see you often, I have always thought of you. We were just starting to get a little closer again when you came up missing.Since you have been gone it feels as if a monsoon of pain has plagued the family. Please come home.We all miss you. I am BEGGING for anyone who knows anything about where you are to please come forward (even if its anonymously) I know i can say that the whole family WANTS MELANIE FOUND.
I love you Melanie
I'm Melanie's Uncle and this has torn our family apart. Everything I've read here about Melanie is true and we miss here dearly. Please if you know anything at all contact someone. We won't stop until we find her and justice is servered on the one's who 've harmed her. We love you Melanie and hope you come home to your family...............Rocky.
Melanie is missed everyday more and more. Not knowing where she is or what happened to her is the hardest part. She has a heart that you dont find everyday, always thoughtful and warm. I'll never forget the times that she would call & wish me Happy Mothers Day,Merry christmas,Etc. Always involved with her family, whch makes so very heartbreaking that she is not here to raise her children and make the memories that i know she would cherish. She will never be forgotten, shes with us everyday, and her family will never give up the fight of who is responsible. Love u Melanie & will never stop praying and thinking of u....(aunt) Bev

IT'S BEEN OVER 8 MONTHS SINCE MY DEAR NIECE WENT MISSING AND WE ARE NO CLOSER TODAY THAN WE WERE 8 MONTHS AGO. WE KNOW NO MORE TODAY THAN WE DID ON THAT AWFUL WEDNESDAY JULY 19, 2006. EVERDAY WE PRAY FOR ANSWERS BUT WE HAVE YET TO GET EVEN ONE CLUE AS TO WHAT HAPPENED TO MELANIE. IT IS SO HEART BREAKING THINKING SHE IS GONE IT'S JUST ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE
This is Leslie, Melanies brother Michaels girlfriend and I just wanted to say that Melanie was one of my good friends, she was a great mother and a extremely great person and never hurt anyone.. I think of her everyone day and you all are in my prayers !
My Heart goes out to the entire family and I pray that you will find Melanie. God Bless You all.
I am praying for your whole family. I did not know Melanie but she went to school with my sister. What can you really say? I just wanted to let you all know that I have thought about all of you all everyday. I hope all turns out good for your family.
melanie was a very loveable girl who would do anything to help someone.she was a very good mother who loved her children very much.it's so sad that someone could do such a cruel thing to her and take her away from the people that loved her the most especially her children.she was full of life and was looking so forward to going to school for her nursing career.that was a big accomplishment for her we all were very proud of her.we love & miss you.
To the world your just one person but to one person you mean the world. I miss you.
MELANIE IS A WONDERFUL PERSON, MOTHER AND FRIEND. I MISS HER SO MUCH AND THE KIDS. I THINK ABOUT HER EVERYDAY AND SHE IS IN MY PRAYERS EVERY NIGHT. WORDS SOMETIMES CANT EVEN DESCRIBE HER. MELANIE I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU.

I just found out about Melanie about two weeks ago when I saw a poster at the I-79 rest stop northbound milepost 85. I have a daughter who also had three children very young, who also went to college via the GED and who, but for the grace of God, could have disappeared just like Melanie. Ever since I found out, I have been praying non-stop that the Lord intervene with His mighty hand and bring her home very soon. I also wrote a comment wondering why there are not more leads since her van was discovered. Did the police not search every nook and cranny of the van for the dozens of different kinds of evidence that could be left behind? Has her route on July 19th ever been retraced from the moment she left her fiancé's to see if there are any security cameras in that area? Does she have a GPS cellphone? When was the last time it was turned on? Did she have a credit/debit card and when last used? Has the FBI ever been contacted to ask why they are not involved in a potential interstate kidnapping? Were there any escaped detainees on the run in the days before July 19th in states surrounding WV? Maybe the newspaper accounts are purposefully vague, but people like myself are left wondering if there are any stones left unturned. Please call the FBI, if you have not already done so, call Senator Byrd, call our Governor and ask why a broader investigation has not been launched. It is so much easier to keep hope alive if people are doing something to find her and getting others involved. Personally, I would be glad to call the FBI and ask the why not? questions, but family and friends would carry more weight if they would do the lobbying. Was a thorough forensic investigation done on her van? Looking for prints, fluids, fibers, anything that people leave behind when they use a vehicle? I would gladly contribute to the reward fund to get these forensics done independently if the local police haven't or won't do it. If someone would care to answer me, a "newcomer" to this incredible story, I would most greatly appreciate it. If you don't want to leave the info here where even her abductors could see it, please feel free to use e-mail. With many prayers for Melanie, William Mann
