    The pond is on the south side of Route 45, about 2,700 feet east of the intersection of 45 and 405 (that is the one that parallels the east bank of the Susquehanna).

    Driving from Lewisburg (west to east), it is about 950 feet past the entrance to the quarry. It is part of the Montandon Wetlands.

    I have advocated, in relation to the Gricar case, a search with a cadaver dog, for last 7-9 years. I drove past the location about 9 years ago.

    You can get a good picture of it on Google Streetview. The pond literally boarders Route 45.

    Part of a blog that I published in March of 2010 on the Ray Gricar disappearance:

    There are places across this bridge, on the east side of the Susquehanna, where a body could be hidden. The first place borders Route 45 to the south, Montandon Wetlands. Some photos of it are here: http://www.bucknell.edu/x20158.xml

    I drove past it on a wet July afternoon; it reminded me of the Everglades, but without the alligators. The wetlands themselves are less than a mile by foot from where the Mini was discovered. At five hundred acres, there would be plenty of room for a body to remain unfound.
    "

    The url still works.

    And it has an old railroad right-of-way along one border that is part of the old abandoned rail bridge across the river. There are also a couple of other egress points.

    As morbid as it may sound, I was hoping her body was in that barrel...for nothing more than maybe a little closure for the family. I cannot imagine KNOWING one of my family members was deceased but not knowing where they were buried/hidden.

    We talked about the same location in the Gricar case.

    Police: Forensic scientists confirm wood chips found in concrete from Miller search


    Which I’m not sure if many know and I’m stating that this was only a rumor from around the time of her disappearance. She was apparently put through a wood chipper and dogs had hit on a wood chipper back in the day.

    Yeah, when I first saw the headline but hadn't yet read the article, I was hoping the memorial service was because her remains had been found and identified.

    It's possible that her remains were found in that barrel pulled from the pond, and they just haven't announced it yet though.

    "Tests on a hunk of concrete may soon solve the 1989 disappearance of a young mother - by determining whether her remains were fed through a wood chipper and then entombed in the basement of a duplex.

    Sunbury Police Chief Tim Miller announced earlier this month that preliminary results showed the three-ton slab of concrete contained wood chips, and he's waiting to see if they also hold the remains of Barbara Elizabeth Miller.

    A forensic pathologist is 'dissecting the walls, so to speak, piece by piece, hammer-and-chisel type, looking for the smallest of clues,' Miller, no relation to Barbara Miller, said last week.
