    NY - Sharon Shechter, 35, Perinton, 9 Dec 2001

    This has always been on my mind. This woman has been missing for over 3 years and it bothers me so much that it doesn't really seem like everything is being done to find her. She has 3 children, she was in the middle of a divorce and she had a restraining order against her husband. The husband now has the children and they have still not found her.

    This is my first time posting as well. I just can't stop thinking about what those children must be going through.

    That is the big issue here. There isn't ANY information out there!!!! Can you believe that!! The only known facts is that she had three children, she was in the middle of a divorce, had a restraining order against her husband, they had joint custody at the time, but I have a feeling that was the divorce was finalized she would've tried to get full custody. Her minivan was found at a days inn right near where the city of rochester begins, not in a bad neighborhood, just not the best neighborhood about a mile away, still not terrible neighborhood, with Blood in it..
    But they've NEVER said anything else???!!!!!!!
    You would think some of our news stations here would be TRYING harder!!!!! It makes me so angry!!! Those poor children!!! And her family!!

    $5000 Reward Sharon Shechter

    The families can't even afford to put up a reward. The reward was finally donated by Carole Sund/Carrington Memorial Reward Foundation back in Feb 2005. $5000 wow.. maybe if they could offer $100,000 we'd actually get down to the real truth of it all..

    *sigh*

    Question I e-mailed the local media here..

    I e-mailed all the local media outlets here in Rochester NY.
    This is what I sent:


    I am writing this to all the local news stations asking the simple question, "What is going on with the case of Sharon Shechter????"
    I have tried various searches on the internet and through all of the media websites and didn't find much at all. Did they ever mention if the husband had an alibi? Was he ever given a polygraph? Did she have a life insurance policy? What about the blood in the van?? Was it a substantial amount???
    It just seems like this case has been forgotten. Is there any contact information for her family? Is there a way people can help them???
    Thank you so much,
    <snip>

    I included my phone number and e-mail address' to them as well.
    I also sent it to a lot of different reporters in the area. Over all I sent this e-mail to about 15 different places. Think it'll work at all?? any other suggestions?

    i don't believe he is. That alan shechter is from NJ I believe. The only local thing I've been able to find about Alan Shechter is just a club that he is in. nothing else.. anothing thing that bothers me a little is that one of the reporters e-mailed me back, and told me that she didn't believe Sharon Shechter was married. I informed her that she was married and gave her the link.
    I understand that the reporters are really busy and could've just forgotten about details about the case, but it just makes you wonder how many people really asked these questions.

    Sharon, just because you don't see the information you are looking for does not imply the case is forgotten. She is on the Monroe County Sheriff's site and the National Center for Missing Adults. There is always information the public can't be given due to the possibility of a future court case however remote a possibility that is at the current time.

    I do agree with you on some points. They obviously can't give out details about the crime scene. But there are definitely somethings that I think they should've reported.

    One being the fact that they said they were looking for a Jamaican man, which I've been told that they are no longer looking for that person and he is in jail for something else. If they would say that they are not looking for him in the connection then it would possible re-direct attention on other factors.

    Does anyone else think it to be strange that the LE and media have never said if the soon to be ex-husband was ever a suspect? Usually the media makes a comment about it either way.

    Thanks for reading!

    It's four years since Sandy Poole's child disappeared

    Mark Hare

    (December 8, 2005) Sharon Shechter vanished four years ago this week, but for her mom, Sandra Poole, the memories of her only child are as fresh as the morning snow.

    "It's as if it were just yesterday," Poole says.

    Sharon Shechter was 35, lived in Perinton and worked as an ultrasound technician. She loved cooking and crafts and polka dancing. She and her husband had separated; their three children Jake, Amber and Rachel were the center of her world.

    Shechter was last seen on Dec. 9, 2001. She had planned to do some Christmas shopping with a friend on that day. She left the house and never returned. A few days later, her blood-stained minivan was found in Gates; the blood was Sharon's.

    Sandy clings tight to the memories and photos. Of Sharon when she was named Miss Pre-Teen Rochester, of Sharon at her Gates Chili High junior prom, of Sharon at a Chuck E. Cheese birthday party.

    Mom and daughter spoke twice or more every day. "Even now, when the phone rings," Sandy says, "I think it might be Sharon calling."

    Sandy says that Sharon was the last baby born at the old Park Avenue Hospital (which later became Park Ridge Hospital in Greece). "She weighed 6 pounds, 11 ounces," Sandy recalls. "She was just 19 inches long. I remember that my girlfriend and her mother snuck up the back stairs to visit us."

    For Sandy, life has been suspended in time. "I remember when she was 2, we went to Hungary, where her father's family was from. We went to a Christmas Eve service and Sharon stayed at my in-laws' home. When we came back, my brother-in-law was running down the street saying, 'Sharon needs you. Come quick.'"

    She had been crying, Sandy says, and the brother-in-law tried to comfort her. He rocked her and talked to her and changed her diaper, but she wouldn't stop. "All she wanted was a bottle," Sandy says.

    It's funny what moments come to mind.

    "When they had the Horses on Parade (the uniquely decorated horses on display all over Rochester), she decided to do Elephants on Parade with the kids." She bought seven ceramic elephants and the kids decorated them, with Mom's help and encouragement.

    There are flashes of the last trip they took to Las Vegas for a wedding the summer before Sharon disappeared. "We stayed at Caesars Palace," Sandy recalls. "One morning we were going downstairs and the security guards brushed us aside. There had been a robbery at a jewelry store right in Caesars. They caught the guy. The kids thought it was pretty exciting."

    Christmas was Sharon's favorite time of year, Sandy says. The day she disappeared, she left the homemade ornaments she was making on the coffee table. When I talked to Sandy two years ago about her loss, she showed me one of them a zebra with yellow, green and red stripes, standing amid huge purple and yellow foliage.

    Sandy keeps close to her the reminders of her daughter's life. She never leaves the house without a button with Sharon's picture asking people to call the sheriff's department if they have any news of her fate.

    No, Sandy doesn't expect to see Sharon again. She knows she is dead, but she can't quite let go. Last summer, Sandy's sister, Rosemary, died from cancer. "It was sad, but at least we know where she is," she says, her voice faltering a bit.

    Sandy waits for the day when she can say as much about her only daughter.

    I don't know what exactly it is that rips me so much. That Sandy will never see her child again or the fact that she is missing and presumed dead or the children will never see their mother again. Someone out there knows more and is not talking. We all know closure is an impossible avenue but to know what happened and to seek justice is importent and needed. Bless you Sharon in your journey!
