3 agencies looking for missing woman


By TRISHA SCHULZ
News Staff Writer


Law enforcement looking for a missing Norfolk woman have traveled outside of the city to follow up on leads.

Sgt. Mike Bauer of the Norfolk Police Division said his agency, the Madison County sheriff’s office and the Nebraska State Patrol are actively working on finding 19-year-old Lacey Anderson.

“We have personally followed up on those (leads) at all hours of the day,” Bauer said.

However, none resulted from actual sightings of Anderson.

Missing since Aug. 23, Anderson is 5-foot-3 and 120 pounds with blond hair and blue eyes. She has a tattoo of a horseshoe on her right foot and a star on her right ankle.

Bauer said investigators aren’t ruling out foul play.

“We’re still open to every avenue that will bring this case to a conclusion. All possibilities are on the table,” he said.

Police are also investigating an attempted burglary at the apartment where Anderson was living with her mother.

“It occurred in such close proximity (to the disappearance) that it could be related. It could be random,” Bauer said. “Until we know exactly who did that, it’s hard to tell. But it’s absolutely something investigators are aware of.”

Bauer said he doesn’t think Anderson’s disappearance is related to last week’s arrest of Rodrigo Ortega Garcia.

The 37-year-old Costa Rican national presented false documentation at the Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston. He was wanted on a Madison County warrant on several counts of possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of methamphetamine, failure to appear and theft by shoplifting.

According to court documents, a search warrant was conducted at Garcia’s home in Norfolk Jan. 30 when Garcia, Anderson, Elias Musito and Maria Sanchez were all present. Anderson was subsequently charged with possession of methamphetamine. That charge was later dismissed.

“We have no evidence that puts Rodrigo Ortega in this area or connected in any way to this recent disappearance,” he said.

Police are currently reviewing Anderson’s cell phone records to determine who she may have been talking to leading up to her disappearance, Bauer said.

An arrest warrant was issued for Anderson last week after she failed to appear in Madison County court on a driving under suspension charge.

Anderson is also due in court next week for sentencing on a revocation of probation for driving under the influence of alcohol and on felony charges involving a drive-by shooting.

Family members say the way Anderson left was uncharacteristic, leaving her cell phone battery, clothes and money behind. Anderson’s mother, Pam Hess of Norfolk, said she doesn’t think she would run away from her court obligations.

Anyone with information can contact the Norfolk Police Division at 644-8700; the Madison County sheriff’s department at 454-2110; the Nebraska State Patrol at 370-3456; or the Norfolk Area Crime Stoppers at 371-7300.

Police seek missing woman with York ties

By Melanie Wilkinson
Published: Tuesday, September 15, 2009 1:06 AM CDT
YORK — Law enforcement authorities across the state continue to look for Lacey Anderson, a 19-year-old Norfolk woman, who a family member says once lived in York.

Watch the Video Report

Lana Thun of Battle Creek, Anderson’s great-aunt, asked that Anderson’s photo be published here, in an expanded effort for gain more information about her whereabouts. Thun says Anderson lived, as a youth, in the York area for approximately seven years.

Anderson has been missing since Aug. 23.

While law enforcement officials with the Nebraska State Patrol, Madison County and the Norfolk Police Department say they are following a number of leads, none of that information was generated by an actual sighting of Anderson.

Anderson is five feet, three inches tall, and weighs 120 pounds. She has blond hair and blue eyes. She also has a tattoo of a horseshoe on her right foot and a star on her right ankle.

Sgt. Mike Bauer of the Norfolk Police Department told the Norfolk Daily News (NDN) that they are not ruling out foul play and that “all possibilities are on the table.”

According to the NDN, there are a number of incidents tied to Anderson that could be related to her disappearance. There was an attempted burglary at the apartment where she was living with her mother, Pam Hess, close to the same timeframe in which Anderson was last seen.

There’s also the issue of Anderson being present at the time a search warrant was served at the home of Rodrigo Ortega Garcia, a 37-year-old Costa Rican national who was wanted on a Madison County warrant on several counts of possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of methamphetamine, failure to appear and theft by shoplifting. Anderson was subsequently charged with possession of meth, but that charge was later dismissed.

An arrest warrant was issued for Anderson two weeks ago after she failed to appear in Madison County Court on a charge of driving under suspension. She’s also due in court this week for sentencing on a revocation of probation for driving under the influence and felony charges involving a drive-by shooting.

The NDN reports that family members “say the way Anderson left was uncharacteristic, leaving her cell phone battery, clothes and money behind. Anderson’s mother said she doesn’t think she would run away from her court obligations.”

York Chief of Police Don Klug says his department has been contacted by the investigating agencies regarding this case.

“Yes, we have provided some assistance in this case,” Klug said. “That is the extent of our involvement at this time. We are trying to provide any assistance when we can.”

Klug said the last contact local police had with Anderson was in 2001.

If anyone has any information about Anderson’s whereabouts, they can contact a number of agencies, including: the York Police Department at 363-2640; York Area Crime Stoppers at 362-2999; the Norfolk Police Department, 644-8700; the Madison County Sheriff’s Department at 454-2110; the Nebraska State Patrol, 370-3456; or the Norfolk Area Crime Stoppers at 371-7300.

Missing Norfolk Teen: Lacey Anderson

Oct 9, 2009              
Norfolk, NE

(NORFOLK, NE) Norfolk native Lacey Anderson went missing almost seven weeks ago on August 23rd. Despite the troubled teen's history of drug use and delinquency, the 19-year-old's mother continues to be her biggest advocate.

Lacey Anderson was living at this apartment complex with her mother when she went missing.

"Lacey is a local girl. She grew up here. There's a lot of people that know her," says Sgt. Michael Bauer, Norfolk Police Investigations.    

Lacey's mother Pam Hess describes her daughter as a good girl who got caught up in bad things. The teen used drugs and was awaiting sentencing for her role in a drive-by shooting when she disappeared.

"She knew she was going to do her time. She was going to make the best of it and take college classes while she was there," says Pam Hess, Lacey Anderson's mother.

Pam says if Lacey left on purpose, it was because someone was targeting her.
 
"If Lacey ran away, I don't think it was because of her sentencing. I think it was because she was scared," says Hess.

There have been dozens of tips but so far none have panned out.

"The cops, they follow up on them, but if there's no leads, there's no leads. It's just like Bewitched came in, blinked her nose, and poof, Lacey was gone," says Hess.    

But Norfolk police say eliminating leads narrows the scope of the investigation.

"The family needs to know that we are continually working on the case. These cases do not go inactive for us. As long as there's something to do, we're out there trying to find Lacey," says Sgt. Bauer.    

And so is Lacey's family, even when they fear the worst.

"But in my heart, I just say, she's somewhere with her friends and they're watching her. And she'll call me when she can," says Hess.

And with the help of Facebook, thousands of friends are coming forward.

"Since Lacey's gone missing, there's 3,600 people on her Help Find Lacey website," says Hess.

"By using the Facebook, we were able to disseminate and retrieve information extremely quick," says Sgt. Bauer.    

But nothing can replace a mother's direct plea to her missing daughter.

"Just let me know you're alive. I don't care if she's on the run forever, just let us know she's alive," says Hess.

Despite her teen's troubled past, Pam says Lacey is a good kid, a child worth looking for.

If you have any information about Lacey Anderson, please call:

Norfolk Police Division: (402) 644-8700
Madison County Sheriff: (402) 454-2110
Nebraska State Patrol: (402) 370-3456

Nebraska authorities search for missing Norfolk woman

Posted: Oct 24, 2009 9:14 PM CDT

NORFOLK, Neb. (KTIV) - It's been two months since a Norfolk, Nebraska woman disappeared without leaving any clues as to where she might be.

Three law enforcement agencies continue to work on finding leads, while Lacy Anderson's family and friends continue to keep their eyes and ears open for information and pray that she will return soon.

19-year-old Lacey Anderson was last seen on the evening of Sunday August 23rd of this year.

"She was kind of down and out. I gave her some hugs and she was just going to hang around the house and pick up the apartment and clean and then she was going to hang out with a friend she had been seeing," said her mother Pam Hess.

Hess, says by the next day, she had become worried after phone calls were not returned and her daughter wasn't at home. Two days went by and her phone was still going to voicemail.

"I kept saying, well, she can't be hanging out with her friends for that long without calling me, because we talked two or three times a day. If she needed something she'd call. When there was no contact, my husband said it's time you go to the police," she remembered.

In a short amount of time, Norfolk Police, the Madison County Sheriff and the Nebraska State Patrol were on the job to help find Lacy Anderson. Hess says two months later, the investigation is slow and the search for Lacey continues

"I feel like it's kind of just sitting on the back burner right now because there's no leads that she's running and there's no leads that she's passed away," Hess said.

Lacey's family says some believe she may have run away for a reason. She was scheduled to appear in court shortly after she disappeared on a probation violation and a felony charge regarding a drive by shooting. However, regardless of her legal responsibilities, the family says it would be very uncharacteristic of her to just run off.

"I personally don't think that she would run without telling her mother," Lacey's grandmother Karen Schmote.

"She would have at least let me know, because we're close enough she's got to know that I'm going crazy inside."

At this point, they are asking everyone to continue the search.

"Just so I know that she didn't go walk somewhere and maybe pass away because she overdosed, because she was using drugs."

Lacey's sister has even established a Facebook page dedicated to helping find her in hopes that a new lead may come out of it and so others outside of the Norfolk area can help find Lacey.

She is described as 5 foot 3 inches tall with blonde hair and blue eyes.  She has a tattoo of a horseshoe on her right foot and a star on her right ankle.  The only things she took with her were her purse, no more than $30 in cash and a cell phone.

If you have seen Lacey or have any information you are asked to contact Norfolk Police, the Madison County Sheriff or the Nebraska State Patrol.

Mother of a Missing Norfolk Teen Fears the Worst

Posted: Oct 28, 2009 10:37 PM CDT

Norfolk, NE- A mother's handwritten note sits on the kitchen table. The mother says, "I pray everyday she will walk through the door." The note is there just in case Lacey Anderson comes home and her mother isn't there. Pam Hess says, "I tell her I love her. I wrote, 'I love your guts.' Me and my girls tell each other we love our guts."

  Lacey Anderson is 19 years old and was last seen by her mother August 23rd. She took only her purse and cell phone. She left her car in the parking lot. Her mother says Lacey didn't have any money and believes someone picked up her daughter from their apartment that Sunday night.

  Lacey was getting ready to go away to prison. She had pleaded guilty for her involvement in a drug-related drive-by shooting. She faces five years behind bars. Lacey's mother doesn't believe her daughter ran away because she didn't want to go to prison. And even the Madison County Attorney doesn't think she skipped out on her court date. Joe Smith says, "She went to every court hearing. She didn't miss one court date. I don't know if she is dead or alive, but we are following every lead we get."

Lacey's mother wants to believe her daughter will come home but her gut tells her something else. Pam says, "I think she is dead. But I want to find her body. I believe someone knows something and they need to come forward."

Lacey is white, 5ft 3 in tall, weighs about 120 lbs. She has blonde hair and blue eyes. A horseshoe tattoo on her right foot, star on her inner ankle, Christian fish on her side with the Serenity prayer written out.  She was last seen wearing a pink tank top, black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and white tennis shoes.

If you have any information, call the Norfolk Police Department 402-644-8700, Madison County Sheriff Department, 402-454-2110.

Body brings Norfolk family closure

Monday November 16, 2009
WORLD-HERALD NEWS SERVICE

A body found in Pierce County on Saturday is believed to be that of missing Norfolk woman Lacey Anderson.

Pierce County Attorney Verlyn Luebbe wouldn't confirm the gender or possible identity of the victim Monday morning. Family members have said they are awaiting DNA tests for official confirmation.

Anderson, 19, had been missing since Aug. 23. Family members who had started a Facebook page titled "Help Find Lacey!" changed the page to "RIP Lacey Anderson" over the weekend.

Luebbe said deer hunters discovered the body late Saturday morning.

"We were wishing we would have a happy ending, but now we have closure," said Karen Schmode of Battle Creek, Lacey's grandmother.


She said Lacey's disappearance took a toll on her.

"I wasn't living. I couldn't think without thinking about where she was," Schmode said. "It's a miracle she's been found."

The Nebraska State Patrol, Pierce and Madison County Sheriff's Offices, Norfolk and Pierce Police Departments worked at the scene following the discovery of the body.

An autopsy is planned and the investigation continues.

Anderson was last seen at a Norfolk apartment, where she lived with her mother.

According to court documents, Anderson had provided information to law enforcement regarding several different crimes and individuals involved. She was identified in other criminal cases as a witness. She also may have obtained methamphetamine shortly before her disappearance.

At the time of her disappearance, Anderson had faced sentencing on a revocation of probation for driving under the influence of alcohol and on felony charges involving a drive-by shooting. A warrant had been issued for her arrest after she failed to appear for her court dates.

"I want her to be remembered as a beautiful, sweet girl who happened to fall into friends of the wrong kind," Schmode said. "We will miss her and life will never be the same without her."


If you have any information, call the Norfolk Police Department 402-644-8700, Madison County Sheriff Department, 402-454-2110.

Body ID'd as missing Nebraska teenager

By Molly Montag, mmontag@siouxcityjournal.com | Posted: Tuesday, November 17, 2009 12:00

PIERCE, Neb. – Authorities confirmed Monday night that a body found this weekend near a rural Nebraska town is that of a missing northeast Nebraska teenager, but they did not release details about the circumstances surrounding her death.

The Pierce County Attorney's Office issued a statement saying the body had been identified as belonging to Lacey Anderson, 19, of Norfolk, Neb.

A sheriff's department official said deer hunters found Anderson's body about noon Saturday in a grove of trees south of Pierce, a city about 15 miles northwest of Anderson's hometown of Norfolk.

Although her body was found Saturday, authorities did not confirm her identity until after an autopsy was conducted Monday in Sioux City.

The Norfolk Police Department has been investigating Anderson's disappearance since Aug. 26. Police say she was reported missing by her parents. She is believed to have been last seen by her mother at 4 p.m. Aug. 23 in Norfolk.

Several Nebraska law enforcement agencies are involved with the investigation, including the Pierce County Sheriff's Office, Madison County Sheriff's Office, Norfolk Police Department and the Pierce Police Department.

Remembering Lacey Anderson


Posted: Nov 17, 2009 11:28 PM
Updated: Nov 17, 2009 11:28 PM

The discovery of a body that turned out to be missing Norfolk teen, Lacey Anderson still leaves her family with many questions. But, they can now just begin the grieving process.

When Lacey Anderson went missing three months ago, life as her family knew it– had stopped.

While the news of her death isn't making it any easier, it's the good times they had with Lacey they say– will get them through this hard time.

Lacey's sister Tennille says its, "All the happy memories, her goofy personality."

Her sister Felica adds, "Her long blonde hair she always flopped."

Her mom Pam has to agree, "She always said I love you, she always said "muah!" and gave you a kiss when she left."

That's the way Lacey Anderson's family wants her to be remembered. The beautiful girl, who loved her family and had a beaming smile.

Not for a few bad decisions her family says– don't identify with the person she really was.

"Lacey was a very special girl. She just got mixed up with the wrong kids– but she was a good girl, she really was. She was beautiful, sweet, nice." Says Lacey's Grandmother, Karen Schmode.

While the discovery of Lacey isn't bringing the family the closure they were hoping for– after missing for three months, Lacey can finally rest in peace.

Her family however, won't rest until they get some answers.

"I just hope whoever did this has conscious and maybe even come forward and let us know who did this if someone knows and bring justice because we just can't believe the world is really like this, that someone would do something like this to such a beautiful girl." Says Schmode.

"I hope they find the person who did this. Her life was taken from us and we don't know how, we don't know where. We want justice. Justice will reap." Says Pam Hess.

Lacey Anderson

NORFOLK, Neb. -- Authorities aren't saying if they believe Lacey Anderson's death was a homicide, but the woman's mother said the 19-year-old feared for her life in the days before she died.

Deer hunters found Anderson's body around noon Saturday in a grove of trees south of the city of Pierce. Police in Norfolk, about 15 miles south of Pierce, had been searching for the teen since family members reported her missing in August.

Her discovery doesn't bring peace to Anderson's mother, who said she suspects foul play and wants to see justice done.

“People are asking me if I feel at peace or if there’s an end, but now I’m in the middle,” said Pam Hess, Anderson's mother. “The end will be when the person that dumped her out in the trees is in jail.”

She said family members had a bad feeling as soon as Anderson disappeared in August. She had run into trouble recently and told her mother she was scared.

"She was involved in a bad crowd of people and she thought somebody was out to get her," Hess said.

Hess and her daughter were living together in Norfolk. Anderson was awaiting sentencing in Madison County court for a drive-by shooting, but disappeared about a month before the hearing.

“She’s just a normal 19-year-old girl who got mixed up with the wrong people," Hess said. "She’s fun, she’s beautiful and she would have never hurt anyone.”

Norfolk Police Sgt. Mike Bauer said no one was hurt in the Jan. 10 drive-by shooting, but Anderson was charged with shooting at an occupied dwelling.

Authorities issued a warrant for failure to appear when she did not show up for the hearing in late September, but were already investigating her disappearance as a missing-person case.

Hess said the family is at a loss as to who would have harmed Anderson, but said they know she didn't go out to where she was found by herself.

"I believe there is foul play," Hess said. "I will believe that until someone proves me wrong."
