    WI - Dayna Menger, 27, & Junelle Marquard, 21, Nekoosa, 20 August 1999

    Junelle Marquard https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/40744/35


    Dayna Menger https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/40340/34




    Dayana Menger

    On 08/20/1999 Dayna M. Menger in the company of Junelle Marquard (MP 40744) and Dayna's son Dakota Menger dropped one of Dayna's children off at a babysitter outside of the City of Nekoosa, WI. On 08/24/1999 it was reported to police that Dayna never returned to pick up her child from the babysitter. Police checked Dayna's residence finding nothing unusual. Dayna, Dakota, and Junelle have not been seen or heard from since. Danya may have had ties to the Milwaukee area.

    A quick search turns up a warrant in Wood County, West Virginia for Dayna M Menger, dated September 2002 ( http://warrant.st/WV-12830489 ). It seems unlikely there are 2 people with that name and I can find no others recorded. Unfortunately there do not seem to be any further records, but this does suggest she may have left town.
    Update:
    I have just realised that Nekoosa is in Wood County, Wisconsin so I suspect the state in the record is incorrect. However, it still raises the question as to how a warrant could be issued in 2002 for someone missing since 1999? Also strange is that I have found an Ancestry birth record for Dayna M Menger, but for 1 September 1965 in Wisconsin Falls (which is next to Nekoosa). However, the missing sites give her age as 27 in 1999 and there are arrest records in Wisconsin in 1995 and 1996 giving her DoB as 17 July 1972. So I am confused. Are there 2 people in close proximity and age with the same very unusual name (and second initial) or are they the same person, and if so what is the correct DoB?

    Links to their CharleyProject profiles:

    Dayna M. Menger http://charleyproject.org/case/dayna-m-menger
    Junelle L. Marquard http://charleyproject.org/case/junelle-l-marquard

    It is stated there that Dayna's date of birth is July 17, 1972 which would correspond with those arrests after her disappearance and also her being 27 when disappeared in 1999.

    I can't help but Junelle seems to me strikingly similar to Racine Jane Doe. I have posted in her thread


    Junelle L. Marquard

    Little bit more information on the case from Charley Project Blog

    On August 20, 1999, Junelle Marquard, Dayna Menger, and Dayna’s son Dakota disappeared from Nekoosa, Wisconsin, apparently into thin air. And I cannot find squat about it.

    NamUs doesn’t have Dakota listed for some reason, and Junelle’s case on there doesn’t have a photo. I was able to snag a high school photo of her from a pre-disappearance newspaper article from Newspapers.com. She played sports a lot in high school; I’m sure many coaches of girls’ teams would love to have a six-footer on board.

    On my research to Junelle I have found her in between two families. Not sure why or what that means. The same surname and even the same middle name and in close vicinity. Obituary Charley project mentiones is from 2nd family. I have found that Junelle L. Marquard graduation year was 1997 and she has attended Lincoln High School in Wisconsin Rapids WI or I think it used to be also called Lincoln High School Ahdawagam WI. If anyone has classmates account can you please search for any additional photos of her in that school yearbooks so we can add to her profile? It would be highly appreciated. Photo Charley Project found was from sport news article. (Pitty it does not say what sport she played)

    I am also interested to verify if she was as tall as NamUs states (73.0 inches - 6.08 feet - 185.42 cm), so if you find any mentiones anywhere else about her height please post here too. Thank you.

    I have been told that 1997 yearbook of Lincoln High School in Wisconsin Rapids is not placed on classmate . I guess for additional pictures we have to search elsewhere.

    Adding link to Junelle's 3 arrests records in 1998, prior to their disappearance.

    https://www.courtrecords.org/people/...E+MARQUARD+WI/

    Out of curiousity I have checked again dates for Dayna arrests and dates do not correspond with Junelle's arrests even though it is a bit confusing which dates are offences and which dates are convictions. Anyway, it does seem (just an assumption) like they both might went on the run. Not sure about baby in tow though.

    I came across Dayna's arrest record, says "abscond", so they are implying she went on the run? Also, is there no information on the minor child Dakota, birth certificate, fathers name?

    I think if you are on bail and disappear in whatever circumstances (foul play, accident, on the run) you would automatically flag in system as absconded. Unfortunately very limited information are out there about all 3 of them.

    Ancestry.com only has that school yearbook up to 1960. I'll look around a bit to see if I can find any other useful info.
