    Rita was last seen at the Bus Terminal on Pinnacle Street. I think that's pretty much the same downtown area where Deborah was last seen. (Mind you, bags packed>bus station ... sounds like Rita was hiking out, and I hope that is the case and she's out having a good time somewhere)

    If the woman was from Belleville, she would have had to have floated in almost a straight line across the lake. I was in Fair Haven on Saturday and the waves were white caps... This is one of the pictures I took of the lake..

    Am I reading this article right? Rita hasn't been seen since 2008? If that is accurate, then she's not floating anywhere.

    Woman from Canada

    The Wayne County Sheriff's Department said the woman whose body was found Monday on the shore of Lake Ontario is from Canada....
    The Monroe County Medical Examiner's Office determined the cause of death to be drowning....
    Authorities said the body is that of a white, adult female, but her name is being withheld pending notification of family. I will not post the name as no confirmation family has been notified.

    My first thought was Canada, just knowing the direction of the water over there. Glad that they have identified her so quickly so that she can be laid to rest by those who love her.

    An elderly Niagara-on-the-Lake woman who went missing last month has been found dead in Lake Ontario along the shoreline in New York.

    The 85-year-old woman, who lived on the Niagara River Pkwy., was reported missing at the end of March.

    Niagara Regional Police fivers searched the Niagara River for her three weeks ago.

    On Monday, the Sherriff's Office in Wayne County, New York recovered the body of a female from the lake shore.

    Medical examiners determined the body was that of the missing woman from Niagara-on-the-Lake.

    The cause of death was determined to be drowning. Niagara Regional Police said foul play is not suspected.

    Body found on Lake Ontario shore identified

    .....Honor Jill Williams' death, but investigators haven't yet determined how she ended up in the water.

    ...Williams was from Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario, 100 miles west of where her body was found. She was reported missing on March 29.
