New Leads Surface In Catskill-Area Disappearance Case

A missing persons case appears to be moving from cold to warm as New York state police investigate new leads.

Troopers searched along Cauterskill Road in the town of Catskill last week, following several leads pertaining to the August 2002 disappearance of Audrey May Herron, a nurse who vanished after she concluded a shift at the former Greene County Long-Term Health Care Center. The 31-year-old mother of three never made it home. Her black 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee, with New York plates X23-3UV, has never been found, despite a massive search and investigation.  Senior BCI Investigator Peter Kusminsky told The Daily Mailthat state police have received some leads and are actively investigating them. He says troopers field about four leads a year in the Herron case and actively pursue each one.
