Her car was later found abandoned; the keys were in the ignition and the engine was running. The door to the vehicle was unlocked and Renkoski's purse and shoes were located inside. She has never been seen nor heard from again.

    On that day back in 1990, Renkoski had dropped her mother off at Metro Airport at 11:30 a.m. and stopped to visit a friend in Canton Township until about 2:30 p.m. She stopped at a party store, bought a beer and headed back to Lansing. Some witnesses have told police they saw her vehicle weaving in and out of traffic, a maroon or burgundy van following close behind.

    She left a large sum of money in her bank account and apparently had no travel plans. Renkoski had a close relationship with her mother and was engaged to be married.

    In 2002, police said they have identified one suspect and are seeking a second in the disappearance of Paige Renkoski. The Livingston County Sheriff's Department relseased composite drawings of both suspects and told of new leads. Among them: at least two suspects were seen by passing motorists. Foul play is suspected in her disappearance.

    Six possible suspects identified in 1990 disappearance of woman along freeway (with sketches)

    By Lisa Roose-Church DAILY PRESS & ARGUS February 20, 2011

    After logging more than 4,300 investigation hours chasing tips in the 1990 disappearance of an Okemos woman, a cold-case team said it has identified six possible suspects in the case.

    The team also hopes to use special sonar equipment in the spring as it follows tips suggesting three Livingston County properties where substitute teacher Paige Marie Renkoski may be buried.

    Officials would not confirm the locations being eyed, except to say the sites are in Fowlerville, Tyrone Township and Genoa Township.

    Livingston team to use radar in search for missing Paige Renkoski

    http://www.freep.com/article/2011052...xt|FRONTPAGE|s

    Paige Renkoski has been missing and presumed dead for 21 years, but the cold case team working toward finding her body hopes it's getting closer, thanks to ground-penetrating radar.

    Livingston County Sheriff's Department cold case squad member Mike Frayer, who is leading the investigation, said the group hopes to begin using the borrowed equipment today to search three Livingston County areas identified as possible burial locations for Renkoski. The substitute teacher from Okemos was last seen the afternoon of May 24, 1990, on the shoulder of westbound I-96, about a quarter-mile east of the Fowlerville exit, talking with one to four men.

    Using a fairly precisely drawn map from 1999, the cold-case team investigating the disappearance of an Okemos woman last seen in Livingston County in 1990 began searching a Conway Township property Monday with ground-penetrating radar.
    The map and a letter with it were sent to LE anonymously.

    Investigators seek public's help in cold case (with suspect sketches)

    A cold-case team has developed three new suspect sketches in connection to their search for an Okemos woman last seen in 1990 on an expressway near Fowlerville.

    Cold case team member Mike Frayer said the sketch based on a tip from a now retired Michigan State Police intelligence officer is considered “extremely credible” and a second sketch based on a tip from a woman resembles a former truck driver serving time in New York for four murders.
