    Interesting info on the suspect (husband) also says others may be involved and still searching for burial site.

    I'm willing to bet the husband did it. I read somewhere that the husband was violent so maybe he killed her but she was able to shield the kids. I don't think the kids are dead.

    I lived in Southern Humboldt county during that time about an hour or so away from where Mary and her girls disappeared. Although I don't remember too much about it from that time, when the case reopened in 2009, it caught my attention. It's heartbreaking to know that she has a daughter still hoping to find her.

    Although all the accounts say that they lived in Honeydew, I really doubt that they lived in the tiny town. At that time, there were many young families going back to the land on acreage (as we did). The Mattole Road runs between Honeydew and Panther Gap through Windy Nip Gap, the areas that were searched. It's remote, and if you left the road to go to someone's home, you needed a map because of all the unmarked dirt roads forking off into the hills to other properties.

    Not everyone had phones and it was, and still is, a marijuana growing area. Although it's very suspicious that her husband didn't report her missing, and I expect that he is the one who "disappeared her," no phone and illegal activity might have played a role in the delay (if he is innocent). Although he is dead, l would like to see a picture of him just to see if I had ever met him. So far, he is invisible online.

    I have some more thoughts and links I'll put in other posts.

    Here is a post from a FB page about the case. There might be interesting comments at some point. It does state that there is no connection to the bodies found in barrels in NH in 1985 and 2000 that have been in the news recently.

    It also mentions that she may have been going by the name of Benson. This must be her previous married name. The Charlie Project link said she might have gone by Danckert. My research shows that this was her maiden name.

    This summary from Porchlight International has the text of the original 1977 news story. I think this quote is interesting and I wonder if it means she was "carrying" a gun.

    Stuart was reportedly heading for a television repair shop in Fortuna or Eureka and possibly was planning to go to an optometrist. She was carrying and was supposed to return before dark, according to Lt. Robert Richards.

    This 2009 article from the Times Standard was updated July 2015. I'm not sure what part is new.

    Since there was no sign of a struggle near the car, I wonder if the car was placed there after she and her daughters were disappeared. She might have gotten home, been attacked by an enraged husband, and the car planted or hidden on the logging road to (successfully) confuse the investigation. Personally, I would not be surprised if their remains are somewhere quite near their home. I even wonder if the crawl space beneath their home was searched. Of course, if others were involved somehow, they could be anywhere in that remote country. I notice that the search area now includes Petrolia, out on the coast. JMO

    The best outcome would be if those little girls are alive and grown somewhere, unaware of their history, and could be found.
