    MD - Laurie Hendershot, 54, Hancock, 7 July 2016

    AKA: Laurie Widmer
    Reported missing Sept 26th but last seen July 7th in the company of a man arrested for stealing money from her bank account.
    He claims he put her on a bus in June.


    A western Maryland man with a 1971 kidnapping conviction is charged with stealing $4,000 from the bank account of a woman missing since July.
    Court documents say 67-year Jerry Petry of Hancock was charged Thursday with forgery, illegal firearm possession, obstructing an investigation and stealing from a vulnerable adult.

    According to court documents, Petry had been living with Laurie Ann Hendershot on-and-off for over a year.
    Petry stated he had been using Hendershot's M&T bank account to pay her bills.

    They are saying he is a poi in her disappearance.

    A Hancock man facing two cases stemming from the disappearance last summer of a Hancock woman has been offered his "temporary freedom" if he divulges where the woman is, a prosecutor said Thursday in Washington County Circuit Court.

    Plea negotiations have been ongoing with Jerry Petry which could result in his "temporary freedom in exchange for Laurie Hendershot's whereabouts," Deputy State's Attorney Joseph Michael told Circuit Judge Mark K. Boyer at the end of one of two evidence-suppression hearings in the defendant's cases.

    It is one of two cases that link Petry to last year's disappearance of 54-year-old Laurie Hendershot of High Germany Road. A search of her home turned up a pool of dried blood at the bottom of a flight of stairs, according to court records.

    "We still want to know where Mrs. Hendershot is," Deputy State's Attorney Joseph Michael told the judge after she handed down her verdict.

    Hendershot, who reportedly suffered from alcohol abuse and mental-health issues, was last seen with Petry on July 7, 2016, in Hancock, court records said.
