    Hope lingers in disappearance

    Ernst Lamothe Jr.
    Staff writer.

    (December 9, 2006) � The last several Christmas seasons have been hard for Larissa Sharpe.

    Her friend Sharon Shechter was last seen about 5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 9, 2001, on Nettlecreek Road in Perinton.

    She was wearing a white sweatshirt with "Cape Cod" written on the front, blue jeans, a long blue jean coat and sneakers. She left the house and never returned.

    A few days later, her blood-stained 1992 red Dodge Caravan was found abandoned in the parking lot of the Days Inn, 1273 Chili Ave, Gates.

    Those most affected by Shechter's disappearance include her three children � Jake, 14, Amber, 12, and Rachel, 10.

    "They need to know that their mother didn't abandon them. They need to know that bad things happen to good people and she loved them very much," said Sharpe, of Irondequoit.

    "It's hard for them to deal with the fact that they are without their mom."

    On the fifth anniversary of her disappearance, a group of Monroe County Sheriff's deputies, members of Shechter's family and employees from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children talked Friday about the case and the renewed efforts to solve the mystery.

    Sandra Poole, Shechter's mother, still wears a button of her daughter everywhere she goes, hoping that it will spark a memory or a glance from a stranger who might have information about her whereabouts.

    "I feel like it was yesterday that she was missing, and every time the phone rings, I think maybe it could be her," said Poole. "It doesn't get any easier with time. We just want closure."

    Ed Suk, executive director of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children New York Branch, said optimism is still alive.

    "We always have hope on cold cases because we have seen successes in the past," said Suk. "We have found that if we bring the issue back into the forefront, we can develop new leads."

    Suk said he has brought in retired law enforcement officers throughout the process to provide "fresh eyes" in the investigation.

    Anyone with information is asked to call the Major Crimes Unit of the Monroe County Sheriff's Office at (585) 753-4900.

    Five years later

    Five years ago this weekend, Sharon Shechter disappeared. The 35-year-old woman was last seen in Perinton. The National Center For Missing And Exploited Children and the Monroe County Sheriff's Department are trying to breathe new life into this cold case.

    "Sharon herself was beautiful person inside an out. She was a wonderful giving kind person. We need somebody to come forward...we need to know what, where she is what happened to her," says Sharon's mother Sandy Poole.

    Undersheriff Daniel Green says, "Hundreds of leads have been looked into we've been out of the county out of the state and at this point Sharon Shecters disappearance remains a mystery."

    Five years after Sharon Shechter's disappearance, law enforcement officials are trying to breathe new life into their investigation. Friday, the National Center For Missing And Exploited Children announced it would be helping with the case.

    "We've got a great system of being able to dispense posters locally and we offer that as a local service to anyone who's in need of trying to get any information out regarding a missing child or a missing adult," says Eric Suk.

    Shechter was last seen on December 9th 2001 on Nettle Creek Road in Perinton. Shecter's red Dodge Caravan was later found abandoned in the parking lot of the Days Inn in Chili.

    "Actually, a couple of years ago we did a top to bottom review. We brought in new investigators, we brought in new investigative supervisors, cold case people that have looked at this. That generated a few new leads but at this point we still are waiting for that one tip or one lead to resolve this matter," says Undersheriff Green.

    For Shechter's mother, it's been five years of questions without answers.

    "It's hard because we don't know where Sharon is we don't know what to tell people you know.," says Sandy.

    "It's just as fresh today as it was five yeas ago for us," says Larissa Sharpe.

    For Shechter's friend Larrisa Sharp it's been a struggle hoping for the best but accepting the worse.

    "In our hearts we feel that Sharon is not alive. We feel that she is not with us, but we don't want to give up hope finding her or bringing to justice the person or persons who've done this to her. You know we need closure for the children. They need to know where their mother is what happened to her."

    If you have any information that could help police in their investigation you can call the Monroe County Sheriff's Department Major Crimes Unit at 585-753-4717 or 911.

    Woman Disappeared 5 Years Ago
    by Seth Voorhees
    Published Dec 08, 2006

    This weekend marks five years since a Perinton woman's disappearance. Authorities hope putting Sharon Shechter's disappearance back in the public eye will drum up some more details about the case.

    Shechter was last seen on December 9th, 2001. Days later, her dodge minivan was found in the parking lot of a Gates motel. There was blood inside the vehicle.

    �People have knowledge of this case out there,� said Daniel Greene, Monroe County Undersheriff. �It might have been a long time ago but people have knowledge of what happened.�

    At a news conference held at the Rochester office of the National Center For Missing and Exploited Children, friends and relatives of Shechter were on hand.

    �Someone knows something,� said Larissa Sharpe, a friend of Sharon�s since the two were little. �And I beg you come forward.�

    Anyone with information about Sharon Shechter's disappearance is asked to call the Monroe County Sheriffs Department's major crimes unit at 753-4900, or call 911.

    Sharon Shechter: suburban mother of three

    By Maggie Ramsay
    Messenger Post
    Posted Aug 01, 2007 @ 08:30 AM

    Perinton, N.Y. � When Perinton resident Sharon Shechter disappeared, family and friends hung and handed out fliers and posters.

    Shechter�s mother, Sandra Poole, walked her daughter�s neighborhood, talked with neighbors, called the media and offered a $5,000 cash reward for any information regarding her daughter�s disappearance.

    She even got Nancy Grace, a reporter who seeks justice for crime victims on CNN Headline News, to do a segment on the case.

    �I did everything I could. There is nothing else I can do,� Poole said. �We are just waiting. That�s all we can do.�

    Shechter went missing Dec. 6, 2002. Nearly five years later, the investigation is still open and ongoing.

    Police found Shechter�s van Dec. 12, 2002, at the Days Inn Hotel on Chili Avenue in Gates with a �substantial amount of blood� identified as Shechter�s, said Paul Siena, the major crime unit investigator for the Monroe County Sheriff�s Office.

    To date, no body has been found and no key witness has stepped forward. The van is the only piece of evidence police have found since her disappearance.

    Shechter was last seen Dec. 9 turning on Christmas lights on her front porch at her home on Nettle Creek Road. She spoke to her mother at noon, saying she and a friend were going to shop at Ames and that she needed to pick up her children from her estranged husband, Alan Shechter, in Chili at 5:30 p.m.

    �I had called a couple of times that day to the house (after 5:30 p.m.), I didn�t get a return call, and I just thought maybe she wasn�t home yet, maybe she�s busy with the kids and I just kind of let it go,� Poole said.

    But on Monday, Shechter didn�t show up for work and her co-workers contacted the sheriff�s office and had them investigate at Shechter�s home.

    Shechter�s three children, who were 5, 7, and 9 at the time, had been taken to school by their father, Poole said.

    Shechter was in the middle of getting a divorce from Alan Shechter when she disappeared. The divorce was described by several neighbors and acquaintances at the time as having �some turmoil,� and he had been charged with criminal contempt after allegedly violating an order of protection in October 2000 when he reportedly grabbed Shechter in her home. That charge was dismissed, provided that he has no further contact with the justice system.

    Siena said when Shechter first went missing the police treated it as a missing-person case. Road patrol officers were advised to keep a lookout, and information about Shechter and her disappearance was entered into a national law enforcement database. The case changed once her van was found.

    �It became a potential crime instead of just someone who had gone missing,� Siena said.

    At that point, he said, the police used every resource available to to find clues, including search and rescue squads and volunteers.

    �I can�t tell you how many searches we did ... tireless, tireless hours of investigating the background of Sharon and interviewing everyone involved in her life,� he said.

    Poole agreed that the investigation proceeded vigorously.

    Back then she said detectives would call daily, sometimes on the speaker phone with three or four of them.

    Calls now come in once a month or so, she said.

    �In the beginning every time they would find a body they would call me. Now they don�t, but I know it�s still a priority on their desk,� Poole said. �There is not a lot anyone can do at this point.�

    Siena agrees the investigation is at a standstill.

    �Leads trickle in and pretty much we respond to any leads we can, but we have run out of every lead. To date we haven�t anything to lead to an arrest or solving the mystery,� he said. There is not a lot of proactive things we can do that would be viable at this stage.�

    Siena said he calls every couple of weeks just to check in with Poole.

    �It�s definitely a difficult situation for the sheriff�s department and more specifically for Sharon�s family. I talk with Sandy every couple of weeks, just to talk, and let her know that we are still here and we aren�t going anywhere,� Siena said. �We firmly believe a case that goes unsolved is a phone call away, and that�s how we treat it now.�

    In the meantime, Poole waits.

    �It�s been real hard,� she said. �We want closure. At least it would put us at peace.�

    Mssing Woman's Family Still Searching for Answers

    By: Jenna Lento

    Updated: December 9, 2012
    Sunday was the 11th Anniversary of Sharon Shechter's disappearance. It's a mysterious case that's left her family without closure and they're hoping you can help bring her home.

    "She was always smiling and fun loving. She was such a good girl. This shouldn't have happened to her," says Schechter's mother Sandra Poole.

    December 9th, 2001 was the last time anyone saw 35-year-old Sharon Shechter. Her mother remembers it all too clearly.

    "Every day it hurts. I think about her everyday," Poole says. She states that her daughter was last seen near her home in Perinton. She believes something happened to Shechter while driving to pick up her kids from her ex-husband.

    "I think somebody got her between her house and there... what else could have happened?"

    When Shechter didn't show up for work that Monday, her co-workers notified police. Three days later police found Shechter's mini-van parked at the Days Inn hotel in Gates, with blood on the inside.

    For years, detectives and family members passed out flyers. Now more than a decade later, Poole doesn't believe her daughter is alive but she's not giving up hope.

    "I don't think so, because I'm sure she would have tried to get in touch with me," she states. "I'm just going to sit and wait. What else can I do?"

    Poole never leaves her phone, in case she gets that one call about Shechter she's been waiting for.

    "If we had closure, it would be a lot better... I lover her and I miss her, her kids miss her and the family misses her."

    Eleven years later Poole is still looking for answers, and sending other parents this message:

    "Treasure every moment they have with their children, because you never know what's going to happen."

    Poole says investigators haven't talked with her about the case in several years. If you have any information for the Monroe County Sheriff's Office they ask that you call 911.

    PERINTON, N.Y. -- Investigators may have new leads in the case of Sharon Shechter, who disappeared 14 years ago.

    Monroe County Sheriff Deputies are now saying journals belonging to the 35-year-old Perinton woman were recently turned over to police.

    The mother of three was last seen late in the afternoon of Dec. 9, 2001. Her blood-spattered van was found in a Gates parking lot three days later. But still no arrests.

    Anyone with information about her disappearance is asked to call the Monroe County Sheriffs Office or 911.

    New Information in the Disappearance Case of a Perinton Woman
    Old journal entries written by missing woman could generate new leads
    By: ALI TOUHEY

    Perinton, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - Monroe County investigators said there's new information in the disappearance of Sharon Shechter. Shechter's mom was moving a few months back when she discovered old journal entries written by Sharon.
    So, she turned them over to police. Police said those entries may offer new clues about what happened to Sharon all those years ago. "It certainly paints a picture of what was going in her life at the time," said Monroe County Sheriff's Investigator, Jeffrey Branagan. Branagan's in the process of combing over dozens of journal entries in the years and months leading up to her disappearance. "She documented quite a few things going on in her life at the time."
    Branagan said Sharon was supposed to pick up her kids from her estranged husband's house back on December 7th, 2001. But, Sharon never showed and according to Branagan, her husband never notified police. Instead co-workers reported her missing after she didn't show up for work. "Unfortunately, we were unable to get many questions answered from her family at the time. Her children were all very small at the time. Her husband requested an attorney early on in the investigation. "
    Police later found Shechter's mini-van parked at the Days Inn in Gates. Shechter's mother, Sharon Poole has always wanted answers. "If we had closure, it would be a lot better," Poole said back in 2012. "I love her and I miss her, her kids miss her and the family misses her."
    Branagan said they've received hundreds of tips over the years. "Many of which have been dead ends, tips that didn't lead anywhere." Perhaps these journal entries change that and the big break in this case comes from none other than Sharon, herself.
    Anyone with information about Shechter's disappearance is asked to call 911.
