Appeal

Marie Ann Bless has been missing for 40 years. She went missing before missing children awareness, DNA testing, and technology. She was last seen at a party full of unidentified male guests and it was laced with drugs. Marie was anything but safe in that setting. Nothing is known about those guests. If anyone got drunk then, tragedies are likely to follow.

Tragically, critical evidence may have been forever lost because, as authorities admit, they mishandled the initial investigation. They had leaned toward the runaway theory during those first critical investigative hours. Her surviving and long-suffering loved ones, after almost 39 years, deserve answers. Someone (s) knows something and Marie Ann Blee is located somewhere.
