Fifteen years after 21-year-old Maura Murray disappeared following a car crash in rural New Hampshire, her father believes newly gathered information will lead to her remains.
The University of Massachusetts-Amherst nursing student lied to professors about a death in the family and left campus on Feb. 9, 2004, driving into New Hampshire. She was last seen on a road that leads to the White Mountain National Forest. She had crashed her car, which was later found.
Authorities say they are aware of Fred Murray's contention that cadaver dogs and a radar scan identified something hidden in a basement near where his daughter was last seen, and they are considering how to proceed. The area had previously been searched and nothing was found.
Fred Murray believes his daughter is dead, the victim of a crime.
Others theorized that Maura fled, possibly to Canada, or was injured, wandered off into the woods and died of exposure. The case has been the subject of podcasts and a documentary.
