    NH - Dorothy Bois, 22, Nashua, 3 Oct 1973

    http://news.bostonherald.com/news/na...icleid=1039943

    October 23, 2007

    Authorities are taking a second look at a decades-old missing person’s case.

    The attorney general’s office and Nashua police said Monday they have reopened the investigation into a woman who vanished 34 years ago. Dorothy Ann Bois was 22 years old when she was reported missing in Oct. 4, 1973. Though no one has heard from her in the years since she vanished, Bois was never legally declared dead and was listed as a survivor in court records when her mother died in 1995.

    A month before she disappeared, Bois’ husband, Kenneth Bois, had filed for divorce against her, citing irreconcilable differences, according to court records.

    Police initially said they had no reason to suspect foul play. Now, authorities have reopened the investigation and searched Bois’ husband’s property and his parents’ house.

    Bois' father dies in house fire

    http://www.nashuatelegraph.com/apps/...030091/-1/news

    November 3, 2007

    More than two years after Dorothy Bois of Nashua vanished, her father died in a fire at the family's home in Merrimack.

    Rumors of foul play surrounded Bois' disappearance in 1973, and the fire on March 8, 1975, added more grist for the mill.

    Investigators didn't show any sign of suspicion at the time, regarding either Bois' disappearance or the fire. Police have since reopened an investigation into Bois' disappearance, but the fatal fire remains a closed case.

    NH - Dorothy Ann Bois, 22, Nashua, 1973

    Dorothy Ann Bois
    Missing since October 4, 1973 from Nashua, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire
    Classification: Missing

    Vital Statistics

    Age at Time of Disappearance: 22 years old
    Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 4'10"; 100 lbs.
    Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Light brown hair; hazel eyes. Slim build.
    AKA: Dot Greene.

    Circumstances of Disappearance

    Bois was reported missing to the Nashua Police Department in the early morning hours of October 4, 1973. She was living at 100 Kinsley Street, first floor, with her husband when she was last seen. The husband said that he and Dorothy had been watching TV the previous evening; that he fell asleep around 23.30, and when he awoke she was gone.

    A month before she disappeared, Bois' husband had filed for divorce against her, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple had married in 1971 and had a daughter. She was 2 years old when her mother vanished. Dorothy Bois also had a son by a previous relationship who was raised by her mother.

    The court later agreed to treat the Bois' case as an uncontested divorce in light of Dorothy Bois' disappearance, and the divorce was granted January 29, 1974.

    In 2007, the Nashua Police Department reopened and continued the investigation into Dorothy’s disappearance, and that investigation led the Nashua Police to obtain search warrants for two properties in Nashua, New Hampshire. Those properties are on Main Dunstable Road and on Woodbury Drive. The Nashua Police Department completed searches of those properties in October 2007.

    Bois was never legally declared dead and was listed as a survivor in court records when her mother died in 1995.

    Dorothy's mother said that her daughter took no personal belongings with her. She also said she feared that her daughter was the victim of foul play, and she was confident that if Dorothy left on her own she surely would have contacted someone in her family soon afterward.

    I always assume the someone on either end of the height spectrum would be quicker to id, assuming there was a body found. I'm wondering if her body may have been assumed to be younger.

    Details of Disappearance
    Dorothy was last seen at her home in Nashua, New Hampshire on October 3, 1973. At the time of her disappearance, she lived in the 100 block of Kinsley Street with her husband of two years, Kenneth N. Bois, and their daughter.

She has never been heard from again.

    Dorothy left behind all her belongings, except her pocketbook and a white flowered beaded change purse. Her mother stated she would have contacted her family if she'd left on her own, but none of her relatives have heard from her since 1973. Dorothy was reportedly under great stress at the time of her disappearance due to health problems with her child. She told her mother she was afraid for her life. Kenneth had filed for divorce the month before she vanished, citing irreconcilable differences. The divorce was granted after Dorothy's disappearance and he remarried in 1974. He is now divorced from his second wife.

    Dorothy dropped out of high school in her sophomore year after she became pregnant. Her son was living with her mother when Dorothy disappeared. Police reopened the investigation into her disappearance in 2007. Her parents are deceased and the whereabouts of her son are unknown. Foul play is suspected in her case, which remains unsolved

    That UID has no DNA or dental info available, so making a match would be difficult. (I thought taking dental x-rays was standard procedure, even back then.) Hopefully the body wasn't cremated and can still be located for DNA testing.

    I know. I'm hoping that having a possible matches spur them into getting DNA or dentals.
