    Does anyone know what they are saying on the ground? I lived in Sitka for 20 years and it is a very small place. Nelson logging road would be one of the few places to dump a vehicle to have it not be found quickly. I just wonder what people are thinking happened?

    It's heartbreaking that this case is getting so little attention because of the isolation of the town where she is missing from. I'm very distressed about this case and wish that people could get behind it to get more help. This case is easy solvable. There is no way on or off the island except by ferry or airplane, so that means that the person responsible for this is still living among the other few thousand that live there.

    Based on what I see on the facebook missing page her family is trying hard to find her but there is no media coverage or anything. Frustrating to me can't imagine what her family is going through.

    Missing Sitka woman’s family files for death certificate

    http://www.ktoo.org/2015/05/10/missi...h-certificate/
    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    The death certificate was issued this past June and Lael Grant has been declared dead; homicide suspected.

    http://www.kcaw.org/2015/06/25/lael-...ide-suspected/

    A Sitka woman missing for nearly three years has been declared dead. Police are now investigating her disappearance as a homicide.
    Other details emerged over the course of three hours of testimony at the inquest. Former Sitka Police detective Jason Sexton told the court about Grant’s involvement with drugs and Sitka’s drug culture. He said Grant liked to hike — often alone — but the Nelson Logging Road was not where she usually went. He had no explanation why her car would be parked there.

    Ryan Silva, who is still working as a detective with the Sitka Police Department, was even more direct. “This case remains open as a potential homicide.”
    That Lael Grant never left Sitka was also the conclusion of the jury. The three men and three women deliberated less than 20 minutes before returning a verdict. They ruled that Lael Grant died in Sitka on or about the 20th of October 2012, “due to circumstances yet to be discovered.”
