    This lady still hasn't been found.

    In the link that Jerseygirl has provided, it states this lady has three daughters plus the son who harmed himself. So possibly she has grand children too.

    Hope this lady is found soon and they all get their mother back.

    Mary E. Buckley – The Charley Project

    [​IMG]

    Missing Since 04/13/2015
    Missing From St. Peters, Missouri
    Classification Endangered Missing
    Sex Female
    Race White
    Date of Birth 12/10/1937 (82)
    Age 77 years old
    Height and Weight 5'0 - 5'3, 90 - 130 pounds
    Medical Conditions Mary suffers from Alzheimer's Disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and other health problems. She is extremely frail, has limited mobility and needs bottled oxygen 24 hours a day.
    Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian female. Brown hair, blue eyes. All of Mary's front teeth are missing and she's supposed to wear dentures, but they were left behind.

    Details of Disappearance
    Mary was last seen in St. Peters, Missouri on April 13, 2015. She lived with her 51-year-old son, Gary Buckley; he was her caregiver and had medical power of attorney for her. Due to her medical issues, Mary rarely left home, and neighbors described her and her son as reclusive. Mary also has three daughters.

    On April 21, hikers found Gary hanging from a tree at Eco Park in St. Charles, Missouri; he'd taken his own life. When the police went to the Buckley home to inform Mary, they discovered she was missing. She has never been heard from again.

    Mary's silver 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe was found in a wooded area just south of the Highway 370 bridge in the Bridgeton, Missouri area, near the train trestle, on the east side of the Missouri River. Investigators believe Gary parked it there and stated the vehicle appeared to have been deliberately hidden.

    Gary left two suicide notes; one was left inside Mary's car, and the other simply said "I'm sorry" and was carved on a piece of wood and left at the base of the tree where he died. Investigators determined he died around the time Mary was last seen. He had been known to frequent wildlife areas in St. Louis County and St. Charles County, including the Eco Park, and sometimes slept rough.

    Mary's whereabouts are unknown. Due to her health problems and the circumstances of her disappearance, she is considered to be deceased.

    Authorities discovered that Mary Buckley was missing on April 21, 2015 when they arrived at her home to notify her that her son had taken his own life. An Endangered Silver Advisory was issued.


    Hikers in Eco Park in St. Charles made the grisly discovery of Gary Buckley's body hanging from a branch over a dry creek bed. Carved into a tree trunk near where Gary Buckley’s body was found were the words “I’m sorry.” Broken twigs arranged on the ground seemed to spell out “Gary,” authorities said.

    “Occasionally, (Buckley) would live in the park area out in the woods, so he was considered semi-homeless at times,” St. Charles Police Captain Don Thurman
    Police learned that his mother Mary Buckley, 77, had been in failing health and Gary Buckley had been living with her in her home in St. Peters on Sugar Glen Drive. She has three daughters, but their relationship with her was strained in part because of her decision to give her son medical power of attorney.
    Her condo on appeared undisturbed when police arrived, but her 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe was missing and her neighbors, who described the pair as reclusive, said they hadn’t seen her for about a week.
    SHE HAS, COPD, AND NEEDS OXYGEN AROUND THE CLOCK, AND ALSO SUFFERS FROM ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE.
    Last Known Location Map
    Because police suspected foul play, they searched the Missouri River for her SUV near where Gary Buckley’s body had been found. Police pulled four cars out of Blanchette Landing, but found no sign of her vehicle.
    Later that day, a train conductor notified police that he had spotted a silver SUV matching the description of Buckley’s Hyundai in woods in Bridgeton, off the railroad tracks, just south of Highway 370, about two miles from where Gary Buckley’s body was discovered. Police speculate he left the vehicle there and walked to Eco Park.

    “When they found the car, it was definitely tucked back and away like he didn’t want it to be found,” -St. Peters Officer Melissa Doss
    Police found a suicide note in the vehicle. It mentioned Mary Buckley only once — when Gary Buckley said caring for her was more of a burden than he thought it would be, Doss said. But it gave no clue about what might have happened to her.
    "We're looking at all avenues. We're looking at avenues that she was put into a medical facility prior to any of this and it just wasn't communicated with anybody. And we are looking into -- was she harmed prior to his passing? We are looking at all of that."
    St. Peters Officer Melissa Doss
    Mary is described as 5' 0" - 5’4″ tall, and has grey hair, blue eyes. Mary wears glasses and Mary's dentures were also found in her residence (She is missing all her front teeth).
