Family continues search for missing woman Featured

Written by

BLUE HILL - Two organized community searches have been scheduled for a missing Blue Hill woman. Jessica Grindle was last seen in late July, and her family continues to search for answers regarding her disappearance.

"We would go to the ends of the earth for each other, and that's just how it's always been," said Grindle's cousin Alicia Pearson.


She was last seen in the Grindleville area on July 24. This weekend, her family is asking community members to come together and help find her.


"She has two beautiful children," said Pearson. "They're currently living with me and I'm worried as they get older they're going to have a lot of questions and they need those answered."


The two area searches are scheduled for Friday from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. and Monday from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. Volunteers should be prepared to hike through various types of terrain. If anything is found, volunteers are asked to contact authorities immediately.


"I'm hoping that we can find her," said Grindle's mother Sharon Grindle. "I'm hoping that for the two boys as well and for Alicia and the rest of my family."


A vigil for Grindle will take place on Wednesday, October 10 at the Blue Hill Town Hall. The day also happens to be Grindle's 38th birthday. It'll be a time for family and friends to provide support to each other.
