Have you heard of the disappearance of Molly Bish?
Molly Bish was a typical teenage girl from Massachusetts who loved summer. She spent most of her Saturdays at Comins Pond as a lifeguard for her part-time job.
One fateful day, Molly’s mother, Magi, drove her to her place of employment. And that was the last time she ever saw her daughter alive.
Sandra Woodworth brought her kids to the pond and once they got there, they noticed something strange – Molly wasn’t at her post. Sandra narrated what she saw when they arrived.
“Backpack was on the beach, her towel was draped over the back of the chair, sandals were in front, the Poland Springs water bottle was right there. But there was no Molly.”
Ed Fetr, Molly’s supervisor, promptly responded to Sandra’s call for help and alerted the authorities. At first, they assumed that Molly was just ditching work but her family defiantly denied that she would never do such a thing.
When police officers realized that Molly Bish was indeed missing, they thought of two possibilities: she drowned or she was kidnapped.

Magi, Molly’s mother, recalled that her daughter saw a bearded man riding a white sedan near the pond. She assumes he could have taken her daughter. The cops were able to sketch the possible culprit based on Magi’s description which matched that of other witnesses. They offered $100,000 as a reward but to no avail.
After three long years, the case remained cold. Fortunately, an ex-cop named Tim McGuigan who has a passion for missing persons cases, took notice and went off to look for clues.
McGuigan’s involvement on the case was definitely a step forward. He interviewed a local named Ricky Beaudreau who had crucial information and divulged the biggest lead in Molly’s disappearance.
According to Beaudreau, he noticed a ripped blue bathing suit at Whiskey Hill, about 8 kilometers away from the pond. The two went on a search together and to their surprise, they were able to find some human bones a week later.
Three years after Molly’s disappearance, on June 9, 2003, police officers were able to confirm the identity of the bones that McGuigan found – they belonged to Molly Bish.
Although Molly’s family is grateful for the closure, they are still eager to bring justice to their daughter. Today, Molly’s abductor remains at large.
