    FL - Nelta Jacques, Johanna St. Louis, 7, & Juanita St Louis, 5, Ft. Lauderdale, 1999

    Divers find minivan with human bones in Alligator Alley canal


    Investigators had covered the van's tag, but one law enforcement official at the scene said it dated to 1999. That's the year Nelta Jacques, 27, and her two young daughters disappeared during a nighttime trip from Fort Lauderdale to their Tampa home.
    Jacques collected her daughters, Johanna St. Louis, 7, and Juanita, 5, and left Fort Lauderdale about 11:30 p.m. on June 2, 1999. They never arrived at their Tampa home and haven't been heard from since.
    She was about eight months pregnant," said Dinora Perry, who runs Missing Children International Ministries in Pembroke Pines and has campaigned for greater police efforts in the search for Jacques. "Her father begged her not to drive that car alone. She said, ‘Daddy, I'm grown.' "

    Van found in canal


    Broward Sheriff's Office divers on a training mission on Wednesday, March 31, 2010, discovered a minivan containing human bones in an Alligator Alley canal, authorities said. The remains could date from 1999, since that's the year of the Florida tag that was on the algae-covered green Dodge Caravan, a law enforcement official at the scene said. No information on the victim or victims was immediately available.

    Thank you for posting about this RR! When I read the story, I knew someone else on WS would care about her too
    A run-away may leave on purpose, but that doesn't mean that they are able to get back home.... Never stop searching.

    Van found in Florida may solve 11 year old mystery

    'snipped'
    While local authorities won't disclose the identity of the remains, a family member said Tampa police confirmed that the van in which the bones were found belonged to a mother and two daughters missing for nearly 11 years.
    Broward Sheriff's Office divers on a training mission discovered the van in 18 feet of water near a rest area at Mile Marker 31 along Interstate 75, Sheriff's spokesman Mike Jachles said. The remains of at least one person were inside.
    The case was being treated as a homicide, and investigators were trying to determine "how many more human remains might be in the water, how they got there and whether this was accidental or something more sinister," Jachles said.

    Investigators had covered the van's tag, but one law enforcement official at the scene said it dated to 1999. That's the year Nelta Jacques, 27, and her two young daughters disappeared during a nighttime trip from Fort Lauderdale to their Tampa home.

    They were in a 1996 green Dodge Caravan. It was a green Dodge Caravan that deputies pulled from the canal Wednesday.

    Jachles said investigators would not discuss whether the van belonged to Jacques. "I divulged all the information that the detectives have allowed me to divulge at this point," he said Wednesday evening. "There's no new information expected."

    But Jacques' brother, Valbrun Chevalier, 32, of Port St. Lucie, said Tampa police investigators called his family to say the car dragged from the canal was registered to Jacques.

    "It's on my mind every single day," he said of his sister's disappearance. However, "it's worse knowing that she's dead."

    Chevalier said Jacques, who worked at Walmart and toll plazas, had left her daughters with her father in Fort Lauderdale while she visited family in Haiti.

    Jacques collected her daughters, Johanna St. Louis, 7, and Juanita, 5, and left Fort Lauderdale about 11:30 p.m. on June 2, 1999. They never arrived at their Tampa home and haven't been heard from since.

    Broward County authorities confirmed Jacques' worst fear that the human remains recovered from a minivan found in a canal along Alligator Alley belonged to Juanita, Johanna, Nelta and Nelta's unborn child.

    This story is so sad I can't believe it took this long. This reminds me of some other guy found in his vehicle from like 30 years before.

    Battling exhaustion and dark and stormy conditions on the road, Jacques apparently pulled over along Alligator Alley, intending to take a break. But she accidentally steered down a boat ramp and into 18-feet of murky water, authorities said Thursday.
    The windshield wipers were still set to the on position, the doors were locked, the windows rolled up and the car was still in drive, said Broward Sheriff's Office Detective Jeff Kogan.
