Maura Murray was 21 when she lost control of her car and crashed into a snowbank in February, 2004. Another driver stopped and asked if she needed help, but she said no, she'd called the AAA. They drove off, deciding to call the police anyway.
Ten minutes later, when the police arrived, the car was locked and Murray was gone. There were no footprints in the snow, sniffer dogs couldn't get a scent on her, and a heat-seeking helicopter spotted nothing.
Strange details began to emerge. Murray, a straight-A nursing student, had withdrawn $280 from her account and emailed her teacher saying she'd have to miss class because there'd been a death in the family (there hadn't). Her cards and phone, a route map to Vermont, and a wine box were found in the back of the car, with red wine splashed on the outside. Back in Murray's dorm room, her belongings were found packed up in boxes.
But despite the leads, detectives made little progress, and there have been no credible sightings of Maura Murray since the night she disappeared.
