New Hampshire officials seek evidence in 37-year-old missing person’s case

Investigators scoured the woods behind a public housing complex for a second day Sunday in Manchester, New Hampshire, searching for evidence related to a 37-year-old cold case, police said.

Manchester police said the search, conducted with the FBI behind 541 Kimball Street, was connected to the disappearance of Denise Ann Daneault, who vanished in 1980 when she was 25 years old.

Manchester Police Sergeant Robert Gravelle said the investigators would continue the search this week, though it’s uncertain how long it will last. Police did not specify what they are looking for.

Daneault “went out socializing” on June 8, 1980, in Manchester and has not been heard from or seen since, according to police. She lived on Hayward Street and was the mother of two children.


Anyone with information about Daneault is asked to call Detective Lucas Hobbs at 603-792-5519.
