    NY - Sandra Ann Sollie, 38, Macedon, 24 May 1994

    Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
    Missing Since: May 24, 1994 from Macedon, New York
    Classification: Endangered Missing
    Date Of Birth: December 19, 1955
    Age: 38 years old
    Height and Weight: 5'5, 130 - 140 pounds
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian female. Brown hair, brown eyes. Sollie's nickname is Sandy and she may use her maiden name, Cervone. Her ears are pierced. She has a birthmark on her abdomen and a scar on her upper lip.
    Medical Conditions: Sollie was seven months pregnant at the time of her disappearance.


    Details of Disappearance
    Sollie was last seen at approximately 2:30 p.m. on May 24, 1994 at the Ames Plaza on Route 31 in Macedon, New York. She has never been heard from again. She was not reported missing until June 5, almost two weeks later. When authorities went to her residence, they found the door locked and Sollie's car parked in the driveway. Her purse and her dog's collar, leash and tags were later located in a dumpster behind car wash in Penfield, New York. Her wallet was found in Rochester, New York. Sollie's black poodle, Jessie, disappeared with her; photographs of Jessie are posted below this case summary.
    Sollie was living alone in part of a house off Route 150, north of Macedon, at the time of her disappearance. She had told friends she planned to meet her ex-husband on the day she vanished. Sollie claimed her unborn child was his and they were having an affair, although he had remarried. Authorities interviewed Sollie's ex-husband about her case and he has refused to take a lie detector test; he denies any involvement in her disappearance, however.
    Four people were charged with using Sollie's credit cards in Rochester after she went missing, but they are not believed to have been involved in her disappearance. Investigators believe Sollie left her home willingly with someone she knew, but her loved ones believe foul play was involved in her case, as it is uncharacteristic of her to not contact them. Sollie's case remains unsolved.

    Search For Missing Macedon Woman Continues After 14 Years

    When Sandra Sollie walked out of her Macedon apartment 14 years ago today, she left behind a mystery.

    Clothes filled her closet and prenatal appointments dotted her calendar. Her poodle Jessie's dish was full and her car was in the driveway.

    But neither she nor Jessie ever came home and there's been no trace of them since June 1994. Sollie was 38, seven months pregnant and living alone in a duplex on Route 350 when she disappeared. Family members say she was excited for the future.

    "She was really happy about the baby," said her sister Donna Neth of Batavia. Sollie had already named the child Brandon Michael.

    I remember when this happened, I grew up near Macedon. A little girl from Rochester went missing about the same time; Kayli Ann Poulton, and supposedly Sollie knew Kayleighs father. Kayli was later found diseased, and a neighbor had taken her. Just an odd coincidence, but still very sad.

    NY-Sandra Sollie Missing Since May 23rd, 1994

    Link to basic information.

    Interview with Richard Ingraham man helping to solve the case.

    The name of the little girl who was abducted is not Kelly Poulton, it's Kayleigh Poulton. Just for clarification.

    This would really be cool to solve. If anyone knows anything, help.

    I remember both of these heartbreaking stories and keeping a close eye out for them. I lived not too far away from both of them. I had always wondered what happened to Sandra. I even called in a 911 report to a location where i believed was her dog. But never heard anything about it.

    One day I went for a walk to the grocery store ..It was a beautiful day for a walk. And on my way back home .. I had to cross a bridge like I would any other day.. sometimes I would stand on the bridge and just look out over it. I was where the river let out into Lake Ontario and a boat storage and sales was right there. Sometimes I would see deer, big fish, and duck families .. I get amazed at nature. lol

    Anyway on this particular day I stopped and was looking out at the water and happened to look down and saw something floating in the water and it looked like a dog. So me being me when it came to injured animals walked back and down around under the bridge. There was a small dock where they put the boats in and out of and right up against the dock floating was a dog and it looked to be a poodle it had no collar and had been in the water for sometime due to the condition.

    My first thought was Sandra's dog... I ran home.. took me maybe 5 mins to get home. I called 911.. they said they would send someone. I waited and after an hour went by no one came so I went back to the bridge and looked and the dog was gone. Now I know it didn't float away the water was clam that day and it was stuck against the dock. So I assumed the police came and took it. I gave my name number and address to the 911 operator .. I figured someone would have came and said something to me.. but to this day I never heard a thing. I still wonder was that her dog or no?

    And if not who tosses a poodle in the river?

    I'm reading the article now Steely, it's 23 pages long so it might take me a while.

    I read the article. One of the problems I immediately see is that they don't have a DNA or Blood type for Sandra.

    Christine of Lighting the Way home here at WS may be able to assist in the matter of finding additional resources that may help these to be found. IIRC from reading about her work she has done this before.

    Would you be so kind as to contact her Steely with this thread and the contact info for the PI so she can determine if she can assist?

    After reading the article, (I made notes as I read) I have the gut feeling her ex-husband, who was reportedly seen with her the day she disappeared, and is the father of her unborn son ~ Michael Brandon, is the main suspect and POI. His name for the article is Ralph Sollie (for any sleuths that wish to ferret out his info).

    Ralph married Sandra's hairdresser prior to her disappearance.

    Also her black poodle Jessie was stated to be snappish at those he was unfamiliar with and the PI thinks that Sandra must have taken what she thought was going to be a quick ride with someone because she took the dog and the dog was unfriendly with those it did not know. He feels that the dog would have had to be comfortable with the person driving the car for a trip to be possible.

    Her apartment was left locked, and her car was in the driveway. The crime scene (her apartment) was contaminated by the Ex-Husband (and her family).

    Her purse a month after she disappeared near a car wash in Penfield (was the car cleaned out there, or was it a ruse to throw off LE?). Her wallet was found in Rochester and her credit cards were used by four ppl that the LE has ruled out as having involvement in her disappearance.

    Her ex. He would be my focus for finding Sandra.

    I've emailed the PI and he stated they have done everything I suggested. I asked if there was a hairbrush or something in evidence to go by. He did say that if they could find the body they'd have the DNA. That's all.

    He said they kept bringing her up every year because they wanted to try and guilt someone into helping the case.

    I can't imagine going through life with a burden like that. It would eat me alive. Also, he killed once he may kill again. Especially since he's gotten away with one murder, so far.

    Such a shame Steely that this man has not been brought before a Grand Jury. Just from what I've read they have enough circumstantial evidence to ask for charges~ a long time ago.

    Does that mean they do not have anything to by if they find a body? That they need to get the body first? Or they do and they need the body to match it with?

    I still wonder if the poodle that I saw was hers and now that I am older and wiser I wish that when I made the call I had just walked back the were I saw it at and waited for the police to arrive.

    I was curious about the body comment too but didn't press it because I got the feeling he felt my interest was laughable.

    He's been very nice and in fact I've talked to him beyond this case a little. In a way I can't blame him. I'm sure there are a lot of nutty theories he has to deal with. My suggestions were about things that I have seen overlooked in a lot of the stuff I've watched. I'm sure he feels everything has been done already and probably it has been, but I just thought I'd check and make suggestions.

    16 Years Later, the Search for Sandra Continues

    16 years ago, a pregnant woman vanished, but her family and friends aren't giving up hope of cracking the case.

    Sandra Sollie was last seen in a shopping plaza in Macedon in 1994, seven months pregnant at the time of her disappearance.


    Every year on May 23, private investigator Richard Ingraham has handed out flyers at Four Corners in Macedon, hoping to solve the case. He has worked to try to find answers for Sollie's family for the past 14 years, for free. Ingraham hopes his efforts will eventually give the family closure

    http://www.13wham.com/news/local/sto...9WmujhHLg.cspx

    Also:

    Every year on May 23, since 1994 for the past 16 years, I have been writing a letter to the editor. It seems so meaningful to me because besides praying every day, this is the only thing I can do to comfort this empty feeling.

    Sandy Cervone Sollie has been missing for 16 years. She was 38 years old and 61/2 months pregnant. Her mom became concerned when no one had heard from her for a while. It wasn't like Sandy -- especially then. She was going to have a baby shower at her mom's. Everything was planned and bought. So why didn't Sandy call anyone?

    Where does one go with just the clothes on their back? She had her purse with no keys in it. Her car was still in her driveway. And where did Sandy's dog go?

    http://www.thedailynewsonline.com/ar...rs/6761757.txt

    Also:

    As May 23 approaches once more, it is incredible that after 16 years, there is still no word of what happened to Sandra Cervone Sollie, the woman who grew up in Oakfield and disappeared from her home in Macedon, Wayne County, on May 23, 1994. Nothing to indicate Sandy and her then-unborn child lived to see the next day and if they did, where they had gone. Nothing to indicate their lives were taken, by accident or by malicious intent. Just nothing. Nothing but questions with no answers. A hard way for a family to live.

    Sandy's mother, Nancy Cervone, passed away Jan. 3, 2008, never knowing the fate of her daughter. The rest of Sandy's family, and her best friend, Tina Fredo, continue on, the everyday pain of wondering eating away at hopes of finding Sandy and her child alive somewhere. Now, the hopes are more that the questions of 16 years will finally have answers and there might be a semblance of closure for those who loved Sandy.

    Cold cases -- and this must be seen as a "cold" case -- do get solved. Macedon and New York State Police maintain files yet, ready to add the tiniest clue that might help them solve this mystery. Sandy was 38 years old, 61/2 months pregnant with a baby boy she had already decided to name Michael Brandon, and was last seen at a plaza in Macedon. When family and friends were unable to reach her by telephone for several days, they contacted police. Police found Sandy's car at her home, but Sandy, her dog and her purse were all missing. Several days later, her purse and the dog's collar were found in a Dumpster in Penfield. There was no sign of Sandy.

    The family hired a private investigator, Richard Ingram. Sandy's story was added to Internet sites such as The Doe Network, the National Center for Missing Adults and the Center for Hope. No clues have come to help find Sandra Sollie.

    Letter: Thoughts of Sandra Sollie, 18 years after she went missing

    Its hard to realize so many years have gone by and before you know it, its too late to say, If only I would have taken the time to do things differently. But with our busy lives today, we take for granted that tomorrow will always come.

    We know the flowers will bloom in the spring. The summer will pass us by with the hot hazy days. The beautiful color of the leaves will always fall off the trees in the fall. And the snowflakes will fall on our face in the winter. But yet we never know, and we take for granted that tomorrow will always come.

    But for my friend she never had the chance to take for granted tomorrow.
