Revisiting the Past


Years ago this tip was received after a vigil that was held in Frog Hollow. The man was at the vigil who sent the tip, however he did not tell us any of this at the time of the vigil he was an odd older man early 70’s, he did not introduce himself formally just kind of hung around at the end of the night he became a topic one said he was a “nice old man” and others thought there was something different. When we got home this email and others was sent to a few of us that were part of the search. We learned the mans name through the emails. I figured this tip was one of the most cryptic and mysterious, and since Halloween is coming and we are in the 9th year of Kellisue missing, its time to draw some interest and maybe someone will come forward with a tip or information.
“I had driven up to Hope Falls, N.Y. and that was a day I may have signed a conservation department register Hope Falls, N.Y. which would be a reference to a lot of other people seeing her that day which would have had to be the case as her poster is all over. I was driving down south from Hope Falls NY when I saw her in Northville NY just before the bend east on old route 30 and probably stopped at Stuarts for a cup of take out coffee which I usually do and frequently stop at the Northville super market. Now the supermarket meat and poultry and fish is frequently a little seasoned, with everything else they sell o.k. and I do not know the reason for this they are probably trying to improve this but to get meat fish and poultry I know an individual from Hamilton County to the north with a county full time population of 2,500 year round and the second largest in area county in NYS has to go to Gloversville-Johnstown NY or Amsterdam NY. And for many other goods and merchandise and services. There are many many camps in Hamilton County NY owned by people from all over that are closed in physically and closed off by sight by trees and flora and gated off. One of these camp owners may have had on and off conversations with Kelly Sue at the drug store she managed nights when he was in Amsterdam, NY shopping or on business. He may have a wife and children in New York City who are not interested in the camp. Kelly sue may have told him of her marital troubles and he said she could live at his camp in Hamilton County NY. Just call him. Kelley sue at the time of her disappearance knew he was at his camp. From Leader Herald newspaper articles I gain Kelly sue was the main family bread winner. What she did the night of September 30 was a message to her husband that the car engine was ruined and no more work at the Amsterdam drug store to win more bread with the car gone. She would thus not be missed. And goodby. But she poured too much gas on the engine and the fire thus spread beyond the engine engulfing the vehicle. She was long gone hiking down the old FJ&G RR tracks (trail for hiking) and undertook a two hour walk down the trail to Fonda NY waited for the first light in the sky and with a coat and hood for the 45 degree temperature walked to a pay phone and called her friend at his camp thus keeping him out of trouble. Simply a Fonda woman not noticed particularly calling a friend to go to work. She went back on the trail and waited untill he arrived. And they went up to his Hamilton County camp. He went back to his business and family in New York City. Neither did much reading of the Leader Herald. And if that is her (unless she has an identical genetic twin or 1st cousin – there may be many kilcullens) taking in the prettiest part of Northville on the hill above the Sacandaga Reservoir – and maybe shopping in Northville – not much changed between October 2008 and Spring 2009. The Johnstown Police chief says she is going to turn up. And I would say she has already in view of dozens and dozens of people in Northville NY this spring 2009. Yet somehow women manage to have many identical twins same facial features, same body build, same 5 foot 10 body height but on the height fewer that tall and the Northville woman I saw the twin of Kellysue is 5 foot 10 inches about 35 years old slender with very good build. A very attractive woman looking very healthy and in good spirits.”



It’s been 7 years now here and gone.. yesterday was your birthday, today we hear news of someones family member being found in the woods not far from your where your car was found. Whether its you Kellisue or someone elses family member, we do know one family will be able enjoy a Christmas knowing where their family member is despite the tragic outcome, because when one has been missing for so long  it means the end of the search, and bringing their family member home to rest .Light a candle this Christmas for all the missing.

After 6 years we are still at square one. As the years go we stay filled with hope. Giving up, is not an option. We will remember Kellisue each year, we will celebrate her life, and accomplishments. We will be there for her daughter, and family. We ask if anyone has information please tell law enforcement. Kelli if you are out there, contact your daughter,

6th Annual Candlelight Vigil

Monday September 29, 2014


Frog Hollow “West Montgomery St”

Johnstown, New York





Today closure was brought to my attention, and what it means to Kellisue’s now teenage daughter. The question remains how can six years pass without any information. It’s clear to us that someone has information that will lead us to Kellisue and for reasons unknown to us they have remained silent all these years.  Our hope for the future is closure. Kelli if you are out there please contact your family. If someone out there has information that can lead us to Kelli please find a way to give us this information.  Even the smallest tip may lead us to her. Kelli’s daughter is old enough now to understand, and see the lack of support for her mom, all she wants is to find her mom, she really needs her and Kellis family needs her now  more than ever.


Another season

The Road Not Taken

By Robert Frost


Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Thinking of you Kellisue you are loved and missed.  May you find your way home.

Tribute to Christopher Clouston Kellisue’s Brother


Please keep Kelli’s family in your prayers this week as they celebrate the life of a great man.  This week will be difficult for them.

Someone so special…
can never be forgotten.

Thinking of You with Sympathy

Those we love don’t go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear. – See more at:

Another Holiday, Another Year…

As we grow closer to another year. We must remember that behind the scenes there is a teenage girl who is missing her mom this holiday season, her only wish is to bring her mom home.  Kelli if you are out there please reach out to someone.  Call Johnstown PD,  call home, call your brothers. Everyone has spent years wondering where you are. If someone has information send an anonymous tip to the NY State Police or to the Johnstown PD.  Do it for Kelli’s daughter she needs to know most of all. She needs her mom. Kelli’s family needs closure too much time is passing by.
