Today marks the 10-year anniversary of the disappearance of Brianna Maitland.

The Vermont State Police reported Tuesday that investigators, who continue to receive and investigate active leads in the case, believe there is a strong indication that Maitland was, in fact, a victim of foul play.

Maitland, 17 years old at the time of her disappearance, was last seen at her place of employment at the Black Lantern Inn, located in Montgomery, Vt. She reportedly left work on March 19, 2004, at approximately 11:20 p.m. Brianna's car was discovered the next day adjacent to an abandoned farmhouse, located on Rt. 118 in the town of Montgomery, a short distance from work. There is no evidence at this time to indicate that Maitland willingly left the area.

State Police detectives continue to explore any investigative strategies in an attempt to uncover information about the girl's disappearance.

The Vermont Intelligence Center, with the state police, launched a Vermont Missing Persons page on Facebook:<>. The intent of the page is to highlight current missing persons in Vermont, in the hopes of finding and returning these individuals home to their families. At any given time, there are approximately eight active missing person cases in Vermont, less than a year old.

The new Facebook page will also highlight the anniversary of unresolved missing person cases in the hopes of soliciting new tips in these investigations. Currently there are 32 missing person cases over a year old that remain unresolved. Any anonymous tip that comes in for a missing person case will be forward by the Vermont Intelligence Center to the investigating law enforcement agency.

State police, along with the Maitland family, emphasize the importance of anyone coming forward with information. The Maitland family continues to offer a $20,000 reward for information. This reward includes $10,000 for anyone who can identify the exact location of Maitland and $10,000 for anyone with information leading to the arrest of the person(s) responsible for her disappearance. Police remain optimistic that new information will lead to a resolution in this case.


State police is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the resolution of this case and/or information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible.

Anyone with information is asked to contact: Vermont State Police at 802-524-5993; the State Police Crime Information Tip Line at 802-241-5355; or submit an anonymous tip at<> or by texting "CRIMES" (274637) with keyword: VTIPS. View the Brianna Maitland flyer at<>.
