    With the extremely cold weather and icy roads she may have gone off the road and is in a ditch somewhere. I hope they find her soon.

    I wonder if they are starting to look at anyone for this disappearance. Her van is found in the woods and she is nowhere to be found. I wonder what evidence they have such as footprints in the area, another car tire tracks, what?! Man, I just wish they would put something out there. Hopefully once they go over her van they will have some possible answers and let us in on it.

    From another forum

    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Freecy...WI/message/839

    I thought this information might be a little telling about the situation. There was food left cooking on the stove, her phone, purse, ect.. was still there. Just her and her van missing. A nasty divorce? Husband has a girlfriend and moved in with the girlfriend shortly after the divorce was filed. All this information is coming from a friend of Jean's. Any thoughts?

    I feel so bad for this family waiting, waiting, and waiting some more! =( Those poor children need their mom and no one has any answers for them. It has been so long now and the weather has not been condusive to staying out in the woods without shelter. I fear the worse and hope for a different outcome.

    Taylor County Woman's Disappearance Still A Mystery

    Three months after a Taylor County woman disappeared, the sheriff tells us they still suspect foul play and are following up on every lead.

    Jean Viken disappeared January 29, 2008. The Taylor County Sheriff's Department says investigators found her van in the the Chequamegan National Forest in Ashland County and says it had the license plate removed.

    Taylor County Sheriff Bruce Daniels says he has seen some results from evidence taken to the crime lab, but wouldn't say if that has helped determine what happened to 38-year-old mother of 4.
