    Searching for clues in the disappearance 32 years ago of a woman who lived on Olde Coach Home Road, town police detectives this week dug up an area near her residence.

    "They had their picks and shovels and were going at it and they discovered nothing," said Lt. Stephen Janik on Thursday at the Glenville Police Department about the efforts of Detectives Michael Lamb and William Marchewka to solve the mystery of what happened to Agnes Shoe.
    The 37-year-old woman nicknamed Ginger vanished on June 26, 1979, according to the state missing persons website.

    The two investigators spent several hours on Monday and Tuesday digging into an "indentation" on a bend in a wooded area 100 yards from the back of Shoe's house, according to Janik. He said the spot is also roughly the same distance from Country Fair Lane, which is off Swaggertown Road.

    Wish there was more info. She was a nun at one point according to doe network. Also, she has a 4 inch scar on neck. Wonder what that's from? Maybe something/someone in her past before she became a nun could have come back to haunt her.

    According to the news story, she was married at the time to RS. He was working in NJ, spent weekends with Agnes and then week days in NJ. She didnt like this so she quit her job and was going to move to NJ with him in a week. Husband said he went to NJ and she stayed behind to pack, he called her after a couple days but she didnt answer so he got worried and came back a day early to check on her and found her missing.

    This all seems strange. I got the feeling that it's possible he didnt want her to come to NJ because it could have been inconvenient to another possible relationship there? BTW, he did remarry.


    BTW, she was a nun in CT but left and went to NJ where she worked at an amusement park and met RS and they fell in love got married etc.

    Ginger is family ,and our hearts are broken. The scar on her neck is from a thyroid operation (no one from her past) and I was told she was on medication for it and it was found still in the home. I can't say too much in here,I'm sure you understand.

    Not sure where to suggest other than maybe to call Ground Penetrating Radar Institute, they have an office right in Albany, NY

    http://www.gprinstitute.org/

    I would also call a local Search and Rescue/Recovery Group. They might have some ideas for you. Its been a long time but if you have a place in mind to search and have permission to search there, they might come out and do "training" work in that location...

    Maybe someone else might have a better idea for you.

    Good luck in your search... Hopefuly you will find the answers you are looking for soon.

    'It's suspicious': Glenville woman vanished 40 years ago

    Anyone with information about Agnes "Ginger" Shoe's disappearance is asked to call the Glenville Police Department's detective division at 518-384-0135.

    Its been 40 years to this day since Agnes has been missing. I can't believe the husband hasn't been cooperative :(

    A lot of info in this article. Bizarre that he and his friends refuse to talk. Doesn't he know that looks bad?

    The fact that the friends won't talk make it seem even more fishy... Did the husband threaten them or something?
