Lonene Rogers now missing 26 years, Hayfield Township, Crawford County, Pennsylvania

It could be that the disappearance of Lonene Ray Rogers had more to due with the bad weather than foul play. However, the fact remains that she has been gone without a trace for over two and a half decades. No matter why she disappeared, she has a family that needs to know what happened to her. The Crawford County Crimestoppers website says her children were 6 and 1 years old, which means they would be 32 and 27 and might even have kids of their own.
The photo is not of the best quality, but that it is probably also due to the passing of time. You will have to use your imagination a bit to make this beautiful young mother into a 55-year-old. But hopefully if you have seen her, you will know it.

Details of Disappearance
Rogers was last seen at her home in the Littles Corners area of
Hatfield Township, Pennsylvania, ten miles northwest of Meadville, on the
evening of January 7, 1981. She got into an argument with her husband that
evening. Later that night, he woke up and realized Rogers was not in bed with
him. He assumed he was asleep on the couch. When Rogers's husband woke up the
following morning, however, he realized she was not in the house at all.
Rogers left behind her hearing aids, car, and other personal items. She also
left her two young children. The evening she disappeared, there was a severe
snowstorm. Her husband initially assumed she left of her own accord and would
eventually return, but she never did and has never been heard from again.
Rogers's husband, who is also deaf, cooperated with the police investigation
and is not considered a suspect in her case. Little evidence is available in her
disappearance; it remains unsolved.

I found out about your mom's case through a website called the Doe Network. I did not know her at all personally but I took an interest since I am also from western Pennsylvania. I do not want to post anything too much more personal than that on the blog, but if you still want to talk, you may feel free to email me anytime at betweenlifeanddeathblog@yahoo.com.
