    How a single database of missing person cases could keep searches alive
    By Christopher Burns, BDN Staff Posted Oct. 31, 2015, at 7:13 a.m.

    Twenty-seven years ago, Virginia Douglas and her husband, Frank Douglas, pulled into the Reny’s parking lot in Belfast so she could use the store’s restroom. Virginia Douglas reportedly walked into the store and was never seen again. The couple had come to Maine on a spur-of-the-moment trip from their home in Lexington, Massachusetts. No one the local police interviewed at the store recalled seeing her. They even doubted she had ever set foot in Belfast, according to news reports at the time.

    Police suspected Douglas may have been the victim of foul play, but they could never confirm those suspicions. Belfast police Chief Michael J. McFadden was living in the city when she disappeared, though he wasn’t working for the police department at the time. He said he can’t recall any other Belfast cases, either before or after Douglas’ appearance, in which someone vanished.

    “People just don’t go missing in Belfast,” he said.
