    WA - Esther Gesler, 37, Auburn, 13 March 1976


    Carrying signs with their mother’s photo on them, Tara Bishop Ernst and Angela Bishop fought back tears outside the Snohomish County Courthouse in Everett. Their mom, Esther Mae Gesler, disappeared 40 years ago.

    “I was 13 and Angela here was 18 and we've been looking for her ever since,” said Bishop Ernst .

    Gesler left Kent to go study for a college exam and disappeared. The lack of answers never gets easier.
    From October 2010:


    A 37-year-old Jefferson County missing-persons case has turned into a suspected triple murder case involving two jurisdictions with interest newly focused on Protection Island as the possible site of related human remains...

    Law enforcement authorities suspect a former civil engineer for Jefferson County, Glenn Bagley, who now lives in the Philippines, in both cases.

    Bagley had a romantic relationship with 23-year-old Althea Blankenship, who rented a room for herself and her 4-year-old son, Jeffrey, from Bagley at the time of their disappearance...

    He is also a suspect in the disappearance of his ex-wife, Esther Mae Gesler of Kent, who was last seen in 1976, authorities say.

    Apparently, Glenn Bagley died earlier this year.....
    From article at link....

    "A former Jefferson County man who was a person of interest in the disappearance of two women and one child in the 1970s apparently has died in the Philippines.

    Glenn Allan Bagley, who had lived in Manila for many years, contracted cancer and died Feb. 11, 2016, according to Bob Gebo, a retired police investigator who leads the volunteer cold case squad at the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office in Port Hadlock."

    still missing:

    Two sisters approached us with hope someone has the clue that will find their mother, Esther Mae Gesler. She's been missing since 1976.

    “I'm going next week and she's going now to see our grandkids and children and she, you know, she should be in the car with us, or we should be going to her house,” said an emotional Angela Bishop.

    KIRO 7 investigators first dug into the story in 2009.

    We traveled to the Philippines to confront Glenn Allan Bagley, who is the prime suspect in the disappearance of Gesler and two others.

    “The only connection that I could see is that I know both people,” Bagley said then.

    “That's bad enough that they are gone, but when you don't know what has happened. You just … there's just no rest,” said Tara Bishop-Ernst.
