Very sad that Bri is gone missing. This is four years now and no one has come forward with any information about that evening. Obviously someone was watching and waiting for her to leave work. She went missing not far from work and there could have been someone waiting to abduct her. Who was working with her and did any of her coworkers have records of sexual assault or criminal activity. Not long ago a woman was murdered and it turned out to be her coworker in the restaurant where she was working who murdered her. There could be a serial killer around the area where she was employed. Did the police reveal any leads at all in this matter? Another case that should be brought out into the open here in Canada and also in Vermont as a cold case wanting to be solved.

Father assails Vt. police in teen search
By Associated Press | April 18, 2004

MONTPELIER -- The father of a Sheldon teenager missing since last month is criticizing the way Vermont State Police are investigating her disappearance.

ADVERTISEMENT



In a letter to Governor James Douglas, Bruce Maitland said the investigation has not been aggressive enough and that his family had been kept in the dark about what police are doing.

Jason Gibbs, the governor's spokesman, said Douglas had not received the letter Friday afternoon but had been assured by Public Safety Commissioner Kerry Sleeper that police were working hard on the case.

Brianna Maitland, 17, has been missing since March 19 after she left her job at the Black Lantern Inn in Montgomery. Her car was found the next day a mile outside town.

Bruce Maitland said police did not tell him about the car until five days after her disappearance when he and his wife filed a missing person's report. Brianna was living at a family friend's house at the time of her disappearance.

MONTGOMERY, Vt. -- Police came up empty-handed Saturday after searching in three locations for a young Montgomery woman who has been missing more than two years.

More than 30 search and rescue personnel from three agencies searched in Saint Albans Bay, Richford and Montgomery for Brianna Maitland.

Police said they didn't find anything related to Maitland's disappaerance.

It's been a frustrating effort for police.

In March, they extended the search to Atlantic City, N.J., after receiving a tip that someone fitting Maitland's description was working in a casino there. That search also proved fruitless.

Three years later, police still looking for answers in case of missing teen

Published: Monday, March 19, 2007
Today marks the three year anniversary of the disappearance of Brianna Maitland, a Montgomery teenager who was last seen leaving work on the night of March 19, 2004.

Maitland, then 17, was last seen leaving her job the Black Lantern Inn in Montgomery at about 11:30 p.m. Her car was discovered the next day next to a nearby abandoned farmhouse on Vermont 118. Maitland's parents, Bruce and Kellie, reported their daughter missing on March 23.

Vermont State Police continue to investigate Maitland's disappearance. Detectives have followed up on numerous leads, none of which have shed any light on the case.

Police say most leads indicate missing teen is no longer alive
By Lisa Rathke, Associated Press Writer | March 19, 2007

MONTPELIER, Vt. --Three years after Brianna Maitland vanished after leaving work at a Montgomery restaurant, police haven't given up hope that she could be found alive.

On Monday night a friend of Maitland's planned to hold what could be her last yearly candlelight vigil with Maitland's family at a park in Enosburg Falls to remember her friend, the County Currier newspaper reported.

Maitland, of Sheldon, was 17 when she vanished after working as a dishwasher at the Black Lantern Inn in Montgomery on the night of March 19, 2004. Her car was found the following day with its back smashed into an abandoned house about a mile a way.

Since then police said they have investigated hundreds of leads, and scoured farms and property in Franklin County. In October of 2005, police searched areas of northwestern Vermont using cadaver-sniffing dogs and other equipment.

Leads continue to come in, and many indicate "that something bad happened to her and that she's no longer alive," Hall said. Often the information is second-hand and not new, he said.

"What we're looking for ultimately is somebody who has some direct knowledge around the circumstances of when she disappeared," Hall said.

Last year, the sister of a Burlington woman convicted of killing her friend and drug dealer told police that an alleged drug dealer killed Maitland, Hall said. Police have been unable to verify any of those accounts, Hall said.

"We're still looking to do some more interviews on that," he said.

Also last March, police extended the search to Atlantic City, N.J., after receiving a tip that someone fitting Maitland's description was working in a casino there. That search, however, proved fruitless.

"Is it possible?" Hall said of the chance of finding Maitland alive. "I could say it is possible, at this point."

Maitland's parents, who have offered a $20,000 reward and have been critical of the police investigation in the past, did not return a phone call seeking comment.

Police said they would continue to search until the case is resolved.

The Center for Missing and Exploited Children said many children are missing longer than three years and the center remains focused on finding them.

"We always keep a positive attitude toward that search," said Bob O'Brien, executive director of missing children services, in Alexandria, Va.

Vermont teen vanishes on way home from workStory Highlights
Brianna Maitland, 17, was last seen about 11:20 p.m. on March 19, 2004

She had just started a job as a waitress

Her car was found smashed into the side of an abandoned house

A $20,000 reward is offered. Call the Vermont State Police, 802-524-5993

NEW YORK (CNN) -- Brianna Maitland was just 17, with strong ambition and a fierce independent streak, said her mother, Kellie Maitland.


Brianna Maitlaind was just 17 and had started a new job when she vanished on the way home from work.

1 of 3 When Brianna insisted on taking a job, moving out of the family nest and living on her own with a roommate before starting college, it wasn't what her parents originally had in mind for her.

She'd just begun a job as a waitress at the Black Lantern Restaurant in Montgomery, Vermont, when she vanished into the night.

Maitland left work at 11:20 p.m. on March 19, 2004, intending to go straight home to her apartment, co-workers said. She got into her car and drove off, but has not been seen or heard from since.

Three days later, her roommate called Maitland's parents, asking if they'd seen her. Alarmed, the Maitlands called the police and discovered that the car she'd been driving had been found on Saturday, the day after she was last seen.

The 1985 green Oldsmobile had been abandoned a mile from the restaurant where Maitland worked. The back end of the car was smashed into a building.

Maitland left behind her contact lenses, prescription medication and two paychecks totaling $150 -- money that a 17-year-old would not have walked away from, said her mother. Forensic testing on the vehicle showed no signs of foul play, police said.


Once authorities linked the car to the missing teen, they brought in search teams as well as scent-tracking dogs and helicopters. More than 500 police officers and volunteers combed the woods near where Maitland's car was found, but they found no trace of her.

"Inside the house where her car was found, we found drug-dealer paraphernalia and a gun," said Detective Brian Miller of the Vermont State Police.

Could Maitland literally have crashed a drug dealer's den? Miller said the investigation shows she was acquainted with one or more people who used that house, but the nature of the relationship remains unclear.

The case bears some similarity to the disappearance of another young woman in Vermont a month earlier. Maura Murray was driving in the snow when her car skidded off the road and was found abandoned. She, too, disappeared. Police have found no solid link but they are not ruling out a connection.

In 2006, two years after Maitland's disappearance, Vermont police had what they hoped would be a break in the case. A Las Vegas, Nevada, tipster called in a sighting of Maitland in the Caesar's Palace casino.


Security cameras captured a young woman resembling Maitland, but the video was grainy and Bruce and Kellie Maitland couldn't say for certain that their daughter was on the video.

Police were not able to find the girl in the video, but Kellie Maitland said, "It gives us great hope that maybe she is out there somewhere alive."

Maitland is described as 5 feet 4 inches tall, 110 pounds, with long, brown straight hair with hazel eyes. She wore a small nose ring in her left nostril and has a thin scar down her forehead to her left eyebrow.

Police and family are offering a $20,000 reward for any information leading to finding Maitland or leading to the arrest of the persons responsible for her disappearance. Please call the Vermont State Police with any tips at 802-524-5993.
