NH Police, FBI Resume Search in 37-Year-Old Cold Case

Police in Manchester, New Hampshire along with the FBI are hoping to solve a missing person case from the 1980s.

Law enforcement will continue their search Sunday for Denise Daneault who went missing 37 years ago.

Police in Manchester, New Hampshire, along with the FBI, first conducted a search Saturday in the missing person case.

It's unclear what exactly officials are looking for in the woods behind the public housing buildings on Kimball Street.

On June 8, 1980, 25-year-old Daneault went out socializing in Manchester and she was never seen or heard from again.

A divorced mother of two children, the Manchester resident lived on Hayward Street at the time.

According to the Charley Project, a database of nearly 10,000 cold cases of missing people in the United States, Daneault was last seen leaving a private social club in downtown Manchester at about 1:30 a.m. on June 8. She left the club telling some people she was headed to a party.

The Charley Project also lists that she had lived with a roommate at the time, and it was uncharacteristic of her to leave without telling someone.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Lucas Hobbs at the Manchester Police Department at 603-792-5519.
