WI WI - Sara Bushland, 15, Spooner, 3 April 1996

So glad to see this! :)

Noting a few quotes from the second link:

“I have lots of favorite memories. I like to think of them often so that I don’t forget them.” Small said.

Which is why Jayme’s case is reminding them that there’s still hope.

“I think her spirit is just like Jayme’s and that she’s a fighter,” Small said.

“If Jayme’s picture hadn’t been out there like it was, that lady in the woods wouldn’t have known who Jayme was,” Small said. “If Sara is walking down the street right now, no one’s going to recognize her because her picture is not out there enough.”

Sara’s family has a message, in case she is reading this.

“We’re here with open arms and that we would take her, you know and love her,” Small said.

“Come home, little bug. That was her nickname,” Mike said.

Sara’s family said they’ll never lose hope – but they do need your help in bringing her home.

I too believe that Sara’s alive. I hope she’ll come home one day
 
you've said this multiple times but haven't said why you believe that... can you explain what leads you to that thought?
To be honest, I don’t know but with some cases I have more hope then others. I’d like to think that Sara is alive and will get to see her sister again but it seems as though she was a victim of foul play. I don’t like to think of her being murdered. I just have hope, that’s it.

Sister of Sara Bushland still has hope that Sara will return home
LS thinks about her sister Sara Bushland every day.

[...]

"Right now we are no closer to figuring things out than we were in 1996," LS said.

[...]

"Sara is the conversation that we want to have but yet it makes everyone sad. So you don't know whether you should have that conversation or not. We would do anything to have a Christmas with her again. This is the stuff you see in the movies and read about in books. Now we have a book," Small said.

The book was published in 2018 and highlights the only facts known about Bushland's disappearance.

"There are many things missing from this book because we don't know the answers," Small said.

[...]

Along with hope memories are what comfort Small and her family the most during the Holidays.

"We had great memories. We also had really bad memories and so we try our best to focus on the good ones."

Hi Everyone!

I am a young female from the area. I am 22 years old and am from Minong Wisconsin. I have been researching many cases from the area since I am stating a podcast directly linked to missing persons cases, crime cases, etc that fascinate me. I have been obsessed with this case recently because it really hits home. I don't understand how someone could just up and disappear like this, with no real leads other than a black truck. If anyone has any information they'd like to share with me about the Sara Bushland case, please send me a message on here. I am trying to get more information about what had actually happened, circumstances, eye witness accounts, any sort of lead so I can bring light to this case again. I want people to remember Sara the same way I'd want my own self to be remembered if I had disappeared. I would leave my direct number, but I have never used this website before, I just found it online from another podcast I listen to relatively moderately. Please help me get information about this case!

Thanks,

Arenthia (not my real name, you get the catch)

Welcome to Websleuths, Arenthia!

I recommend Robert Dudley's book Searching for Sara Bushland if you haven't read it already. It is a quick read but full of detailed information and includes a Foreword by Sara's sister, Lesley. MOO
