    AK - Linda Skeek, 32, Anchorage, 1 Jan 2016

    Linda Skeek


    Anchorage woman missing since New Year's Day

    "A 32-year-old Anchorage woman has been missing since New Year’s Day, the Anchorage Police Department said Thursday.

    According to APD, Linda Skeek left her South Anchorage home after she and her husband got into an argument. Skeek has not been seen since, police said.

    “According to Linda's family, Linda has stayed away for an entire weekend before, but she always returns home by Sunday night so that she may go to work on Monday morning,” APD wrote in a release.

    When Skeek didn’t show up for work Monday, her husband called police, they said."

    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 hope she is found safe.
    And if she is safe and doesn't want to be found I hope she lets her family know.

    Linda is 5'10" tall, 200 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a black coat, red vest, and red skirt. Anyone who knows of Linda's whereabouts is asked to call Police Dispatch at 786-8900 (press "0" to speak with an operator).

    Former Juneau woman missing since New Year’s Day in Anchorage

    According to a public announcement from the Anchorage Police Department, Skeek left her home on foot after a fight with her husband. She was reported missing Jan. 4.

    Skeek, whose maiden name is Sheldon, moved to Anchorage from Juneau in April and still has many friends and family members in Southeast.

    Skeek’s family told Anchorage police that she had left for the weekend before but would always return by Sunday so she could go to work the next day.

    On Nov. 30, Skeek filed for a protective order for herself and two children against her husband. She withdrew her petition for a permanent protective order 10 days later. Skeek’s mother Linda Sheldon says the two had a fight but had resolved it.

    ...Online court records show Thomas Skeek’s criminal history includes assault and protective orders, including two sought by his wife for herself and a minor. He was also convicted in Juneau of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor and third-degree attempted sexual abuse of a minor.

    The home that Linda Skeek shared with her husband, Thomas, and family is unit number 3. (KTUU photo.)

    Thomas Skeek makes a first court appearance.


    Laura Sheldon and Myrna Brown, mother and aunt of Linda Skeek.
    Wiping away tears, Linda’s mother said she can feel her daughter’s presence and wants to bring her home to Juneau as the family awaits the murder trial.

    “She’s crying out. She wants to be found. I really know she wants to be found. I don’t think she’d want to be in pieces everywhere,” said Laura Sheldon.

    The family of a missing Anchorage woman whose husband has been charged with her murder is searching the city in hopes of finding her body.

    Linda Skeek


    Linda Skeek, 32, was last seen on New Year’s Day. Her husband Thomas Skeek, 34, phoned police to report her missing but was arrested after a search of the couple's South Anchorage home.

    Linda’s extended family gathered at the house today. As adults stood outside the blue fourplex putting together a search plan, young children chased each on the snowy driveway, slipping on the ice and laughing.

    Ugh this is so sad

    They must have found a lot of blood (or traces thereof) in the home and car to charge him with murder without having found her body.

    I hope they find her. The family needs to put her to rest.
