I have a special request for readers in the Illinois area. Beth Bentley, a mother of three boys has been missing for over a year, and I would like, with your help to bring renewed interest to her case.
I just learned about her case from a reader, Allison, who noticed that Beth was not posted on the MPofA site. After I read Beth’s story, I couldn’t believe she wasn’t there either.
I am hoping that we can renew the interest in this case and possible get the media to look at it again, and not just for Beth or her husband but for her three boys that have no idea what has happened to their mother.
Benedetta “Beth” Bentley has been missing since May 23, 2010 from Centralia, Illinois.
Beth was supposed to be going to away for the weekend and her friend took her to the Amtrack Train Station in Centralia, Illinois to drop her off. But, neither Amtrak nor passengers remembered seeing her.
Beth was a mother of three and she was to return the next day from her trip but she never arrived, and Beth’s phone has not been used since May 23, 2010.
So, there is two ways you can help. Share on Facebook and emails AND if you are in the area, go to Beth’s website, and register for “Miles for Beth Bentley” and adopt a street. Then go to that street and pass out posters door to door letting the public know that Beth is missing. Check out the link and also forward it to anyone else in Illinois that you know that would be willing to register for the cause. Thanks!!
