    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "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."

    I am in the area, if anyone needs me to check anything out. I went to high school with her. Although I haven't seen her in quite sometime, this is very unusual for our area. I'm hoping it has something to do with just wanting to get away for what ever reasons.

    I'm also very close by and willing to help if I can. Had a few interactions with her and a close family member several years ago. As Guardian_Angel says, this is unusual for the area. I believe her family has been very helpful to her and supportive over the years. They must be worried sick.

    Her family home is where she lives or her family lives there (parents)? Does she have a husband and children? Work at a job? Since they say "they believe" she's driving her red car, does that mean nobody saw her leave or that she may have ditched the car? All the articles say the same thing. She doesn't look as large as the description so I wonder if that's a current pic? Does she have a phone? Maybe this will all be addressed soon.

    The police reports are being very vague. I have not seen anything at all about her disappearance in the last few days as far as updates or any new information.

    Her father was the mayor for several years, and had a long political career while running his well know dairy farm. There is a Canada 411 listing with her first initial and another initial and a hyphenated last name. I know the street address is the same street that her parents live on, so maybe she lived a few doors down from them.

    It has been a cold blustery day today, with tons of snow falling all day. I just hope she is safe and warm somewhere.

    The 56-year-old was reported missing by her family on Dec. 7.
    She was last seen at her family home in Welland at about 10:30 p.m. on Dec. 6.

    Pietz is described as 5-foot-5, 240 lbs., with long, straight blonde hair, blue eyes and a three-inch vertical scar below the outside corner of her right eye.

    Here's hoping she comes home in time for Christmas. What a wonderful gift that would be for her loved ones.

    I go to Welland, Dunnville and Hamilton a few times a week and have been keeping my eyes open. Is there any info on where she likes to go or what she likes to do? Her family must be devastated.

    PORT COLBORNE - Investigation into the disappearance of a 56-year-old Welland woman missing since early December shifted to the icy waters of the Welland Canal Thursday.

    Niagara Regional Police combined its winter underwater search and recovery and marine units training with a search for Cathy Pietz, not seen since Dec. 6.

    But unlike a training exercise conducted at the Lincoln St. docks on the Welland Recreational Canal in Welland just prior to Christmas, Thursday’s site was cordoned off with yellow police tape.

    At the scene Thursday, Const. Richard Gadreau wouldn’t say what led police to to southernmost point of West St. except that “we’re always committed to ensure we follow up on everything.”

    Family has been kept apprised of developments in the police investigation as they arise and were notified of Thursday’s dive, Const. Derek Watson said by phone.

    Pietz was last seen at her family home in Welland at about 10:30 p.m. on Dec. 6 and prior to her disappearance she had been speaking to a friend in Hamilton.

    Police are not treating the disappearance as suspicious.

    Pietz is described as 5-foot-5, 240 lbs., with long, straight blonde hair, blue eyes and a three-inch vertical scar below the outside corner of her right eye. She was last seen wearing black slacks with a white stripe and a blue sweater.

    She was believed to be driving a red four-door 2001 Pontiac GT1 with Ontario licence plate AWYV176.

    Sgt. Bill Wiley, who heads the marine unit, said a hole was cut in the canal ice Wednesday evening on the assumption divers would be entering the water just past 9:30 a.m. Thursday.

    However, an icebreaker originally scheduled to bring a ship into port for wintering Wednesday night was delayed and the dive exercise as a result, too, was delayed by safety concerns with shifting ice.

    Ice at the scene was about 10 centimetres thick Thursday.

    Police are asking anyone with information about the disappearance of Pietz to call 905-735-7811 ext. 3306.

    Eerie how these two women disappeared a year apart on the same day, December 6th, in the same city of Welland and there is no recent updates in the MSM. Cathy disappeared in 2013, Amber Lyautey in 2014. Hope LE are still actively investigating these cases. So sad there is very little media attention of them. MOO.

    She's not listed on the national missing persons website and there's no mention of her on the Niagara Police Services website.

    Amber Lyautey was found unharmed.

    It looks like Cathy's mother passed away in April of 2014 and by the comments, I think Cathy was still missing at that time. Also, Missing People Canada site still has her listed as missing. I hope she is either safe or will be found.
