Missing one year: the search for Bethanie Dougherty
By Laura Hand
Wed, 01 Apr 2009 20:29:29 GMT — One year after Bethanie Dougherty went missing, her family is not giving up on finding her. The posters offering a reward are still up around Killawog, the community on the Cortland-Broome County line where neighbors reported hearing screams for help. She has not been seen since, and law enforcers have no clues in her disappearance. Terry Curtis, Bethanie's father has, also, printed up small hand cards, with calendars on the back, hoping that more people will see his daughter's picture and make a connection. He's, also, getting involved with a group called Center for Hope, which is organizing a National Missing Person's Day in Albany this weekend. They are pushing cold case cards. Bethanie's set to be included in the next deck that's printed, and Curtis says he wants to see the cards distributed, not selectively, but to every prison and jail in the state. There is a reward being offered in the Bethanie Dougherty case. You can call the Broome County Sheriff's Office at 607 778-1911, or check www.findbethaniedougherty.com
