Family of missing Thief River Falls woman sets up Web site
Jackie Pagel, Anderson’s sister from Minnetonka, Minn., asked the public to check out
It includes the family’s account of the last day they talked to and saw her and photos of her and her yellow Pontiac she last was seen in, driving away from her home.
“This Web site is still a work in progress and will be updated daily on the new news events and also any new updates we can give,” Pagel said in an e-mail to news media Thursday. “If anyone has any suggestions on what to put on the Web site or if anyone has anything I can add to the Web site please e-mail me and I can add or change anything.”
Law enforcement has gotten many leads and none have turned out anything useful. No sightings have been confirmed and nothing new, a spokesman for the Pennington County Law Enforcement Center in Thief River Falls said Thursday.
There’s no evidence of foul play, but no ideas as to what happened to Anderson, either, say family members and investigators.
There is a $5,000 reward for information leading to her discovery.
This week, Anderson’s husband, Jeremy, and her parents, Judy and Steve Lappegaard, and sister, Jill Lappegaard, met with a volunteer with Texas EquuSearch, a nationally known nonprofit that aids in missing persons cases.
Pagel said the family is “hoping this Web site gets a lot of traffic to keep the word out of Gina’s disappearance. Our family thanks you all very much for all your support and concern. Thank you to everyone for everything, and we hope and pray to find Gina and bring her home very soon.”
Anyone with information can call the law enforcement center at (218) 681-6161.
