    MI - Anita Hambleton, 53, Van Buren County, 11 June 2008

    "Anita Lou Hambleton has not been seen or heard from since 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 11, when she called a friend.

    She was not home when her husband Todd arrived shortly after 3 p.m. Wednesday. Her personal belongings and car were still at the house. When he was unable to find his wife after checking with family and friends, Todd called the Sheriff’s Department to report her missing.

    Anita Lou Hambleton is 5 feet 4 inches tall, 180 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes. Police say she has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder."

    Found this article as well

    "Fifty-three-year-old Anita Lou Hambleton is diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and was in a car accident a few years ago that frequently gives her trouble with mobility." (bolding mine)

    Looks like the searches have been pretty extensive by the house. Husband says she has friends who frequently pick her up, so he didn't get worried right away.

    I hope they find her soon....

    Van Buren County authorities say a body found in Lawrence Township Saturday may be that of a woman missing since June 11. Sgt. Scott Schmitt of the Van Buren County Sheriff's Department said the badly decomposed body was found about 1:50 p.m. in the 69000 block of 56th Street, across the road from the home where 57-year-old Anita Lou Hambleton vanished last year.

    Body Believed to be Missing Woman

    The badly decayed body of a woman was discovered over the weekend. The disturbing discovery was made by a man looking for deer antlers off 56th St. in Van Buren County's Lawrence Township.

    Investigators believe it may be the remains of 53-year-old Anita Hambleton, who was reported missing by her husband last June 11th.

    The clothes and the wedding ring are hers. For now police do not suspect foul play, but an autopsy has been ordered in Lansing to try to determine the cause of death and to verify her identification.

    He found his neighbor's body in his field

    Investigators are moving closer to finding out what happened to a Van Buren County woman.

    Dental records have proved that the remains of a woman's body found over the weekend near Lawrence is that of 53-year-old Anita Hambleton. She'd been missing since July.

    After many days of many people searching for Hambleton, one person ended up stumbling across her in the fields in Lawrence. Now that an autopsy has confirmed to family members that it is in fact her, many are hoping to put the ordeal behind them.
    The Sheriff's Office still doesn't know the cause of Hambleton's death, they are hoping an autopsy will be able to shed some light on that in the coming weeks.
