Family of Missing Shaker Teacher Creates GoFundMe to Hire Private Investigator
I want to thank the outpouring of support our family has received from everyone... family, friends, neighbors, the Lee community and anyone else I may be forgetting. With your support we will find Meghan! -Peter Naple, brother of Meghan Marohn
The search in the Berkshires enters week number 4 for missing Shaker teacher Megan Marohn. Meanwhile, her brother Peter Naple is doing everything he can to keep his sister's name in the news, and more importantly, FOUND!
Weeks ago, Naple created a web page dedicated to her search called FindMeghanMarohn.com which offers the latest information on the search, details about the $50,000 reward as well as comments, theories, and other discussions about her unsettling disappearance at the end of March.
Naple, the last known person to have contact with the missing North Colonie teacher, added information on Thursday about a GoFundMe page he created hoping to apply the funds to the continuing search effort for Meghan, including the hiring a private investigator.
Here's what we know about her disappearance so far.
- On Saturday, March 26, 10th-grade English teacher Meghan Marohn drove from her hometown of Latham to Stockbridge, MA.
- Marohn, a poet, who also enjoys nature and hikes, checked into the Red Lion Motel upon arrival.
- Sources say she may have been upset about some personal things but that it wasn’t unlike her to take spontaneous trips alone.
- The last time anyone heard from Meghan was later that evening on the 26th when she called her brother, Peter. According to sources, she told him she was reading a book and enjoying a bowl of soup in her room.
- She was reported missing 3 days later on March 29th.
Meghan’s black 2017 Subaru Impreza was found abandoned on Church Street in the parking lot of Janet Longcope, a 46-acre park in South Lee
- Witnesses told the police that her parked car had been there for two days.
Meghan’s phone last pinged on Sunday, March 27th at approximately 3 pm.
Authorities determined that she did not get on the hiking trail where they found her car.
- In a strange twist, according to Berkshire Eagle, Meghan crossed the street and walked in the opposite direction toward a rural residential area where the signal eventually cut off.
- It's been confirmed that the Albany County Sheriff's have joined the search. Last week they helped MA police navigate some really difficult terrain near where they found Marohn's parked car. Sheriff Craig Apple who spoke with the GNA Morning Show last Tuesday said the search, unfortunately, turned up very little.
- If you have seen Meghan, call 911 immediately.
