Rose Marie Bly missing from Wisconsin

More information on Rose I have found: Her cousin said Bly had not made plans to meet up with her and she never saw her that night.

Polk Coumty Sheriff Tim Moore said in 2010 that the sheriff’s department shipped the entire case file to FBI headquarters in Quantico, Va. Sheriff Johnson later stated even though it was shipped it still remained their case.

“Unidentified DNA evidence” was found in the Pontiac, which has not matched anyone in the current database reported in 2019.

Also, in a 2019 article I found this information: “Unidentified DNA evidence” was found in the Pontiac, which has not matched anyone in the current database reported in 2019. Bly’s DNA has been kept for the future. In a 2014 article, I found this information: one search warrant has been executed recently…

“Our official statement is that nobody is ruled out,” Johnson stated, which is a clarification from several years ago, when it was made public that her husband had passed a polygraph test. 

“I can’t say a whole lot about it,” Johnson said this week. “We’ve got some leads we’re working on. A couple of them appear to be promising. But we just have to wait.”

Because Bly went missing, a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge, with a later amendment for domestic abuse, that was filed three months prior to her disappearance was never settled and a warrant is outstanding. 

Original Story: Rose Marie Bly, went missing from St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin in 2009. She was last seen driving away from her home about 7:30 p.m. to meet a cousin in Cushing, Wis. at a bar. Rose Marie Bly is the aunt of missing 5-year-old Summer Wells from Tennessee. Click here to read that story.

Rose’s car,  a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am was found abandoned four days after she was reported missing at the municipal lot west of the Post Office in Grantsburg. The keys were missing.

“I’m just at wit’s end, because I don’t know what happened,” her mother, Candy Harer, of Grantsburg, Wis. told She doubts her daughter — who wanted to be a children’s book author — would have left on her own. She was an “amazing mother” who never would leave her children, Harer said.

Rose and her dad

Police have been called to the home in the past — Larson accused her of slapping him, and she accused him of putting her in a headlock and slamming her to the ground, according to police and court records. He filed for divorce in June, but they reconciled and he withdrew the petition.

Police are trying to piece together what happened in the days before she went missing.

Her husband, Christopher Larson believes Rose left on her own. He filed for divorce in again in 2010 and was granted temporary sole custody of their daughters, court records said, Larson took a polygraph and was cleared.

Investigators searched her phone records, drained a lake and followed up on several reports of sightings but she was never located. Since 2009 they have handled over 200 tips on this case and have interviewed over 150 people.

She is 5 feet tall, weighs 110 pounds and has light-brown hair and brown eyes. She has a tattoo of cherries on her right ankle. Her ears and belly button are pierced. Bly was last seen wearing jeans, a green V-neck sweater over a white tank top and flip-flop sandals. She frequently changes the length and style of her hair; at the time of her disappearance, her hair was cut in a chin-length bob. She may color her hair blonde or red.
