Thank you

The vigil has come and gone. We are grateful for the support we received that night. Kelli was there with us you could feel her energy. We are working on planning a small scale search if we can get enough people interested and willing to help.

Kelli’s daughter will be celebrating her birthday soon and we are putting together a box of gifts to drop off to her so she has some love and light on her thirteenth birthday. If you would like to contribute to the birthday box please send me an email or a facebook message


The petition reached 1050 digital  signatures and about 400 written signatures and is on it’s way to Kirsten Gilibrand  NY State Senate. Again we thank everyone for the support.

Kelli’s 40 th birthday is December 16, 2012 we were also thinking of pulling together and doing a pot luck dinner and cake to celebrate and to come together for her before the holidays.

There is still a reward for 1000$ floating around if you have information that will lead us to Kellisue you could be 1000$ wealthier !


Another Year = 4

We never thought 4 years would pass by with out answers.

Vigil this Sunday September 30, 2012

Meet at Rite Aid  Market St. Amsterdam, NY 9:45pm-( time Kelli left work 4 years ago).

We will sit in our cars for 10 minutes before exiting parking lot @ 9:55pm (Kellisue sat in her car for 10 minutes alone).

We will make the drive back to Frog Hollow, West Montgomery in Johnstown, NY the site where Kelli’s car was found burning.

There will be a short candle lit vigil and a prayer.

We are also encouraging everyone to place a purple ribbon on your car or home in honor of Kellisue and domestic violence awareness. – Directions Rite Aid  to Frog Hollow Facebook event page





Anonymous Donor Offers Reward


An anonymous donor has offered a reward of $1000 for an exact location of Kellisue Ackernecht. The reward will be issued to the tipster after an official identification has been made by DNA or by producing a live and well Kellisue.

To provide a tip you can use the anonymous tip line and put your contact information so we can make the connection. An email can also be sent to Facebook can be utilized to also send in a tip.

We will hold a vigil for Kellisue to remember that she vanished 4 years ago leaving more questions than answers.

The vigil will begin at Rite Aid on Market St. in the City of Amsterdam NY on Sunday September 30, 2012  beginning at 9:30pm. We will then enter our vehicles at 9:45pm till 9:55pm. The night Kelli vanished she sat in her car for 10 minutes before leaving the parking lot.

We will then all make the drive to West Montgomery Street “Frog Hollow”  where we will hold a candlelight vigil and prayer.

Please join us either in Amsterdam or Johnstown, or both. To show Kelli’s family and friends the support from the community is still there.  The past few months awareness about Kelli and her case is spreading rapidly we hope this shows the night of her vigil.

The last vigils have been only family and a couple friends, very disheartening we hope the night of September 30 will be a great experience filled with love and light.

Faith, Love, and Hope remains our motto we have not given up on you Kellisue.


Hey Kelli

To Kelli,

At this moment in time you really need to contact someone and let them know you are okay. You do not know me I am just a concerned citizen who started helping and became one of your spokesperson’s and your voice since you obviously are missing. If you want to come back home and can at the end of this letter I will post a number that goes directly to my home phone you can leave a voice mail or text and we can go from there. I understand your need for privacy if you choose not to come back, just let us know you are okay and the search can stop and your daughter can seek you out if she chooses later on in life. We do not know what happened to you, but something happened that night after your shift.

If Kelli is no longer with us and the person who hurt her is out there please lead us to her some how, send an anonymous tip use the number posted at the end of this.  One small clue one hint as to where to find her. Her child needs to know. More than anyone that is who hurts the most in this. 4 years is a long time not to know.

In This World

Sometimes things happen and we do not know the reason. God has his plans and his way of  balancing life. We may not understand or have answers. We must find faith and  inner strength. There must be peace now for Kellisue’s sake she needs us to take a step back re-evaluate and come up with a solid plan to find her. The next few months will be busy. There is a vigil planned for September 30 there are details on Facebook we will post the information when the date grows closer. We also plan on having another search with a spin this time we will include a search and investigation on whether Kelli relocated herself. All angles need to be explored.

We also have some new information which may link Kelli so Israel Keyes, who is accused of murder in Alaska. He was in NY in 2008 and may have passed through the Fulton/Montgomery County area.


The pictures below are of  Israel Keyes if you recognize him please call Johnstown Police 518 736 4021

Dial 518 291 9157 to free yourself

To Kellisue, or the person or persons who knows where she is.  We have set up an account through Google voice, which allows us to receive voice mails and texts.  the number is 518 291 9157. Please call and either let us know you are safe. If someone has information on the whereabouts of Kelli please call or text and leave the information so she can be found. There will be no justice only closure in knowing where she is. 518 291 9157  please block your number when calling if you would like to remain anonymous.

Someone knows something Kelli either left with help, or was taken against her will either way she did not vanish into thin air

The Truth Will Set You Free

Almost 4 years has slid by and not word or clue as to where Kelli might be.  There are so many ideas and theories but none of them brought Kellisue home. If you have the information of the whereabouts of Kelli please send an anonymous letter to law enforcement so there can be closure.  The justice and legalities do not matter. What matters most is locating Kelli alive or deceased. Please clear your conscious of this. We do realize someone out there knows something. She did not act alone. The answers are there we just need the person who knows to be brave and mail a letter.

Ways to send an anonymous letter courtesy of  Marianna Boncek author of Gone Missing in New York

1) print out the envelope’s address. Some post offices no longer accept an envelope with no return address. Type a fake one.

2) Do NOT save the letter. Delete it immediately.

3) Do not touch the letter or the envelope. Use gloves.

4) Do not lick the envelope, use some other way of closing it. Drop the envelope in a post office box where there are no cameras. This is fairly easy. Most small, rural post offices do not have cameras on the outside. I urge you NOT to send an anonymous letter, but rather, do the right thing and come forward. However, for whatever reason, if you cannot come forward you can still do the right thing by sending an anonymous note. Please be as SPECIFIC AS POSSIBLE so searchers can find Kellisue and bring her home. She has people who love her who would like to have some closure. You CAN do this.

You can also go to a lawyer and give the information to him/her. All conversations between a lawyer and his/her client are privileged. The lawyer cannot legally reveal who you are. If you do this, and the police have questions, they can safely be relayed between your lawyer and you. Do the right thing.

Days Upon Days

We have been back to the beginning, the scene of the car fire, Rite Aid in Amsterdam and through the woods and over the hills looking for Kellisue.  What we have uncovered during this journey is accounts of Kelli’s life from other people. Stories how her high school life was hard. Stories of domestic violence, affairs,  financial woes. We have also heard stories of Kelli’s laugh,her love for her child, and her dedication to working hard. We have seen the graduation video, and a few snap shots of her life.  We know she has people in this world who miss her and that would go to the ends of the Earth for her. We have a police force who feels her life was so bad she could not take it anymore ; so she just took off.  Everyone has their own theory and their own ideas. We keep our minds open to any and all possibilities.

If you have seen Kellisue Ackernecht or heard from her please let us know.  We need to know she is safe.

The search will continue, our hopes will remain high ! We will find out what happened to you Kellisue.

Each Day

Information about Kellisue’s life is unfolding slowly. Each day we hope to find out a little bit more. Maybe the puzzle will finally be solved. Our hope will remain strong. Do not be afraid to come forward with information or facts about Kellisue. If you have something to share please do. The information helps us humanize her and bring her to life. Life is a precious gift. Life should be protected. Sometimes things happen that cannot be changed. At this point in time Kelli’s case will probably remain unsolved even if she is found. The elements and time have surely swept away the crime scene. We are trying to find out about the tunnels under Johnstown.  We are trying to find friends and family who are willing to share a memory or information. We are trying to figure out who Kelli’s closest friends were when she went missing. We are trying to figure out what her state of mind was a week before she went missing.

The slide show below is a tribute to her life…

Peace Love Hope Kelli We WIll FIND YOU!

Almost 4 Years


Almost 4 years have gone by and not one word, not one whisper, not one sighting. What we do have after 4 years is about 5-10 pictures of Kelli, one video, and a lot of confusion.  We have had tips and interesting facts come up that have not been taken seriously.  Interesting fact there are two men in Fulton County with wives who went missing in 2008.  In 2008 3 women went missing from NY. There was a skull found in Danby VT over a month ago still waiting on information(probably not Kelli) but they need to check and make sure.  We need people to come forward, there is an anonymous tip link and yes you can write anything you want and no one knows who you are, its a completely secure site and will not compromise privacy. We need people to help us on March 25 in a quick search while the foliage is down.  WE NEED MORE PICTURES AND VIDEO OF KELLI!!
