    ID - Joan Gundlach, 70, Post Falls, 23 April 2013

    http://www.khq.com/story/22065580/mi...-in-post-falls

    On April 24th, just after midnight, an officer with the Post Falls Police Department was completing a routine check of Q'emiln Park in Post Falls when he discovered a vehicle parked at the trail head. The vehicle was unoccupied and registered to a 70 year old female, Joan Gundlach.

    The officer investigated further and made contact with the husband of the registered owner. It was discovered that Joan had been depressed and possibly suicidal when she left the residence on April 23rd at approximately 10:00 A.M. Joan had not been heard from since.

    Additional units from the Post Falls Police Department along with assistance from the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office, responded and began to search the park and the Spokane River. No evidence was found and Joan was not located. Post Falls Police Detectives responded and are continuing the investigation into the missing person case.

    Joan was last seen around 10:00 A.M. however no clothing description is available at this time. Joan is a white female, approx 5'8" and 155 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. Anyone with information as to Joan's whereabouts is asked to call the Post Falls Police Department at (208) 773-3517 or leave an anonymous tip on our website at www.postfallspolice.com .

    Missing Post Falls woman's disappearance 'suspicious'

    [snip]

    The man said he found a suicide note in bed Tuesday night that directed him to where Gundlach's car would be. He went out to the site, saw her car -- but no sign of her -- and then went home but never called the police.

    When asked why he didn't alert authorities the man said he was "too shocked to call the police."

    [snip]

    Authorities are investigating this as a missing persons case with suspicious circumstances. Police said there are a number of questions regarding the behavior of missing woman's husband in not reporting the suicide notes, her car's location or her disappearance and she has not been located.

    Thursday morning officials said that the husband is not considered a suspect in Gundlach's disappearance; they later amended that statement when Post Falls Police Captain Pat Knight said, "I think at this point everyone is a suspect until we can prove otherwise."

    I kinda had a feeling it was odd that he didn't report her missing. And after 70 years on this earth, with all that people go through in life, it makes no sense to me when he says she was depressed/suicidal. But, I guess anything's possible. I don't have a good feeling about this one.

    Police suspended an active search for her on Wednesday morning in the Q'emiln Park trail system and the Spokane River after about 10 hours of looking.

    "This remains an active investigation and our priority is to find Joan," said Post Falls Police Capt. Pat Knight. "It's a missing person case with suspicious circumstances.

    "We treat all such cases as a homicide until we can prove it differently."

    However, there are no suspects or persons of interest, Knight said.

    POST FALLS - In an attempt to locate a missing Coeur d'Alene woman, Avista Utilities on Thursday closed its south channel dam to allow law enforcement to scour that part of the Spokane River, but the search came up empty.

    However, some evidence has been found near the river, but Post Falls Police Chief Scot Haug declined to discuss details.
