    State helicopter helps search for missing woman

    The low-altitude flyovers, however, did not reveal any clues to the whereabouts of Alice Nunes, said Lynn police Lt. William Sharpe....

    ....Nunes' last cell phone contact placed her within a 10-mile radius of the Wyoma Square, Route 129 area in Lynn. She was driving a 2007 black Lexus ES350 with Massachusetts registration 21GX72.

    Police will regroup and pick other locations after a State Police search of the Saugus River Friday morning did not find missing Peabody resident Alice Nunes' car.

    Trooper Patrick Foley and two other members of the State Police underwater recovery unit spent an hour searching the river between the Belden Bly Bridge and Ballard Street Bait Shop in a small boat. The troopers towed a yellow cylinder roughly a yard long called a side-scan sonar and used a viewer to check for objects on the river bottom. They searched the river between low and high tide when it was about 10 to 15 feet deep, Foley said.

    Peabody woman still missing after 2 months

    PEABODY — Tim Horgan remembers Dec. 15.

    It's the day emergency repairs began on the Belden Bly Bridge, a 95-year-old drawbridge that spans the Saugus River and connects Lynn to Saugus. With the bridge closed, cars began taking a right off Western Avenue (Route 107) and heading toward Horgan's boatyard beside the river.

    At least 100 mistook the turn for a detour.

    Seems like it took a long time for that detour to be mentioned.

    This is an extremely difficult and dangerous time of the year for searchers to be working a case like this. Let's hope that some clues emerge soon to help people find Mrs. Nune.

    LE is working hard on the disappearance of Mrs. Nunes. I know specifically that the Lynn Police Department is extremely proactive right now with bringing in other 'tools' to help with this search.

    'There's water coming in the car. Come and get me!'
    Just before Christmas, Alice Nunes, a Peabody grandmother, left home alone and never returned. Her desperate phone call to her husband was the last anyone has heard of her.
    John Nunes was watching television in his bedroom on the night of Dec. 15 when his granddaughter yelled at him to pick up the phone.

    When he did, he heard his wife's panicked voice.

    "There's water coming in the car," Alice Nunes screamed. "Come and get me, John. I'm in Lynn. Hurry!"

    Then the phone went dead.

    John Nunes has not heard from his wife since then.

    It has been 5 1/2 months since the 57-year-old Peabody grandmother went missing, on an unseasonably mild Monday night 10 days before Christmas. Police have searched ponds, harbors, and rivers in Peabody and Lynn, but they have found no sign of Nunes or her two-year-old black Lexus.

    According to a witness who came forward later, a woman who fit the description of Alice Nunes had two drinks at the bar at the Four Winds Pub in neighboring Lynn, on Sluice Pond just outside Wyoma Square, roughly between 8:15 and 8:35 p.m. The bar was about 3 miles from the Nunes home. The woman did not speak to anyone and seemed upset, police said the witness told them.

    To the people who knew Alice best, that is almost as bizarre and troubling as what happened next. "That she didn't talk to anyone; that's not like her," her husband said. "She would never go out alone. I don't know what possessed her."


    I can't post the whole article but it has more detail about things so we get a better picture of this story and very sad to.

    Oh my goodness such a sad situation for her Husband and family.

    They have been married 39 years and only spent four nights apart during that time. It just breaks my heart for all of them. Prayers for comfort for the family.

    Angry Alice Nunes's car found today - Alice probably inside

    Car of woman missing for a year found in pond



    PEABODY, Mass. -- Police have found the car of a Peabody woman who has been missing for nearly a year.
    Alice Nunes's 2003 Black Lexus was found at the bottom of Flax Pond in Lynn.
    Nunes, of Peabody, disappeared last December.
    The 58-year old woman was last heard from on her cell phone pleading for her husband to come help her because water was rushing into her car.
    Investigators said Nunes' body was likely the one found inside the car. They do not know how the car got into the water.
    "The car was located in approximately 16 feet of water about 40 to 50 feet out in the perimeter of Carter Road. When the car was extracted from the water the doors were locked. The Jaw of Life were used to open the doors. There was a body located in the back seat of the car, that body will not be identified [yet]," said Jonathan Bloggett, district attorney.
    Along with the body, police said they found the woman's work ID.
    State Police are examining the car. The medical examiner has the body and will determine the identity and cause of death.
