    Daughter of Missing Ohio Woman Speaks Out
    Daughter of Susan Ryan says her mother is still Missing, while many claim she’s Found


    Wilmington, NC – Helen Zimmel the daughter of missing Susan Ryan has suffered over the disappearance of her mother for the last eight months, but now people are telling her she has been found. “I was confused at first from messages or conversations by stranger contacting me saying my mother has been found, I was determined to get answer”, said Helen Zimmel. “It was disappointing to find that because my mothers case was no longer running in the media and most poster are down now, people assumed she had been found; I want and need the world to know my mother I still missing”, she added.


    Susan left on foot during the early morning hours of June 5, 2010, leaving behind all of her personal possessions including her cell phone, purse, credit cards, taxi pass, and even her beloved dog, a Chihuahua named Myrtle. Her family and friends are concerned as this behavior was uncharacteristic of Susan and she has not contacted anyone since the date she vanished. Susan was last seen at the intersection of Saybolt and West Liberty in Wooster, Ohio.
    “In all cases of missing people, it is most important to disseminate information concerning a loved ones disappearance, in an effort to keep a community searching”. “In cases where details are released on a regular basis as a reminder to the public, often can lend aid to investigators in solving the case”, said CUE’s founder, Monica Caison.

    Law officials conducted searches for Susan along side more than one hundred community volunteers and to date have not produced the missing woman. Few tips have surfaced in the case which leave her family and friends lingering in the unknown fate of what happened to Susan and where she may be; her daughter continues the daily fight to keep her mothers face and name from becoming a faded memory.

    Helen knows all to well of feeling the separation from her loved ones, saying goodbye to her husband who has been recently deployed hits home even harder as her mother is not there to cling to when family is needed most. “I miss her more each day that passes and some days can barley deal with all the emotions that come with suffering a missing mother”, the missing woman’s daughter, Helen Zimmel said.
