    NY - Marion McCleneghan, 40, Brooklyn, 6 Feb 2010

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,586577,00.html

    A Brooklyn, New York, woman vanished after leaving a party on Feb. 6 and has not been seen or heard from since, The Brooklyn Paper reported.

    Marion McCleneghan, 40, left a party at 14th Street and Seventh Avenue around 2 a.m., according to a neighbor who was the last person to see her, the paper reported.

    “This is totally out of character for her,” Ben Sodo, McCleneghan’s husband, told the paper.

    The couple recently separated, but Sodo said they were in friendly, daily contact with each other before McCleneghan disappeared.

    “She just got a new job, she’s extremely happy, and she wouldn’t just pack up and leave,” Sodo said, according to the paper.

    Sodo said he became concerned after he couldn’t get in touch with her and her phone kept going straight to voicemail.

    “She was at a neighbor’s house, a few blocks from where she lives,” Sodo said, referring to where McCleneghan was last seen the night she vanished.

    “Something must have happened if she disappeared in that short distance.”

    An NYPD detective called McCleneghan’s case a priority, the paper reported.

    She is described as 5-foot-10, 150 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes, according to the paper.

    Police are asking anyone with information about McCleneghan’s whereabouts to contact Detective Gibbons at (718) 636-6483 and reference case 109.

    Park Slope woman, 40, disappears
    By Andy Campbell
    The Brooklyn Paper

    Park Sloper Marion McCleneghan, 40, has disappeared. She was last seen leaving a party in the neighborhood on Feb. 6.

    The 40-year-old 14th Street woman was last seen leaving a party at 14th Street and Seventh Avenue on Feb. 6 and hasn’t called friends or family since.

    Now her husband, brother and sister-in-law have begun a frantic search including cold calls and fliers all over the neighborhood.

    “This is totally out of character for her,” said Ben Sodo, McCleneghan’s husband, who said the two were recently separated and living apart, but were in daily, friendly contact.

    “She just got a new job, she’s extremely happy, and she wouldn’t just pack up and leave,” he said.

    A neighbor who last saw McCleneghan told Sodo that the missing woman left the party at around 2 am. When Sodo couldn’t reach her for days and her phone went straight to voicemail, he knew something was up.

    “She was at a neighbor’s house, a few blocks from where she lives,” Sodo said. “Something must have happened if she disappeared in that short distance.”

    He said McCleneghan was seeing a therapist who was treating her minor anxiety problems, but that the condition and medication didn’t affect her “extremely smart, alert, well-spoken” demeanor.

    An NYPD detective on the case said he could not comment, except to say that McCleneghan’s case is a priority. She’s described as 5-foot-10, 150 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.

    Anyone with information on McCleneghan’s whereabouts is asked to call Det. Gibbons at (718) 636-6483. Give case number 109 for reference.

    More info on the fight with boyfriend

    Sources said that investigators questioned (Richard) Sosa, who had a scratch on his face, and that he was initially cooperative. Then he lawyered up when he was asked to take a polygraph test.

    there's always a boyfriend......at first i figured the husband, recently separated, might be interesting, but sure enough, another man figures into the picture...
    but weird that her laptop is gone? if the BF did something to her would he be thinking so clearly as to gather up anything incriminating so quickly? although not sure when LE checked her apartment...

    TWO laptops + Journals

    TWO laptops are missing ... and a stack of handwritten journals. Has to be someone who was worried about being implicated in her writings. Her phone & wallet etc was found in the house -- so it was a very targeted theft of "incriminating" stuff.

    Doesn't sound good.

    Police Intensify Search for Missing N.Y. Woman

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,587042,00.html


    Saturday, February 20, 2010

    Investigators climbed into Dumpsters and inched over rooftops yesterday as the search intensified for a Brooklyn, N.Y., woman who vanished two weeks ago after arguing with her boyfriend.

    Marion McCleneghan, 40, vanished at about 2 a.m. on Feb. 7 leaving a party at Richard Eric Sosa's home on 14th Street and Seventh Avenue in Park Slope.

    Sources said that she was spotted twice since then — once in a deli and once outside her home.

    Sosa yesterday insisted "I'm cooperating," but investigators have suggested he's been less than helpful.

    Sosa told friends and relatives that McCleneghan was the last guest to leave.

    "I think something bad happened, and I think it was in that house," said McCleneghan's mom, Barbara Sullivan. "The clothes she was wearing the night of that party weren't in her apartment. She never went home."

    The one and only interview I saw with the boyfriend bothered me. He didn't look at the camera at all. In fact, it looked as if the cameraman was filming him entirely in profile. It was very strange.

    From The Brooklyn Paper, 02/22/10:

    The Park Slope woman whose disappearance has stunned the neighborhood for more than a week was last seen at a deli near her 14th Street home a full day after she allegedly vanished after a fight with her boyfriend.

    Mike Haden, the owner of La Dolce Vita deli at the corner of Seventh Avenue, told Marion McCleneghan’s mother this morning that the 40-year-old woman was in tears when she came into the shop on Feb. 8 at around 7 pm.

    “She said to him, ‘Goodbye — you won’t be seeing me anymore,” McCleneghan’s mother, Barbara Sullivan, told The Brooklyn Paper. “She said she was headed to Long Island.”

    Just plans for a search...wonder if it happened Saturday?

    Link to full 02/24/10 story

    As the search for 45-year-old 14th Street resident Marion McCleneghan languishes into its third week, concerned friends and family members are preparing an intense grid search of Park Slope and its environs in an attempt to pick up her trail.

    McCleneghan was reported missing on the week of February 8. While initial accounts have her disappearing following a party near her home on 14th Street, a further investigation revealed that McCleneghan was seen in the neighborhood at least once the day after the party. She reportedly told a clerk at a local deli that she was going to Long Island.

    Her surprise disappearance had everyone fearing for the worst — especially after her boyfriend, Richard Eric Sosa, whose house she left “in a huff” following the party, suddenly refused to cooperate with investigators. And, although he’s not being considered a suspect at the time of this writing, Sosa was also found sporting a scratch on his face after McCleneghan had vanished, according to published reports.

    Yet the further sighting of McCleneghan has given everyone hope.

    “At the beginning of the investigation, I thought she was Laci Petersoned,” said one police source, referring to the California woman who was killed by her husband, then reported missing. “Now, who knows? There’s a fifty-fifty chance that she’s fine. Maybe she just needed to take a break from everyone.”

    McCleneghan’s mother told the Brooklyn Paper, a CNG sister publication, that the 45-year-old was seeing a therapist and was “having a rough year” marred with a separation from her husband and the loss of her father and other family members.

    Police said that after the party, either McCleneghan or someone else entered her apartment and removed her laptop computer and several journals.

    Yet until she resurfaces neither the police nor worried friends and neighbors are going to stop looking for her.

    Earlier this week there was an internet call for volunteers to help in a widespread search for McCleneghan. The search, originally scheduled for Tuesday but postponed to Saturday, was expected to encompass Park Slope and Prospect Park.
