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 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





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

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.

Attention Kelli’s Co-Workers

I challenge any of you that knew and worked with Kellisue before she went missing to send a message and give us some insight on her work life. We realize most do not want to be involved and choose to remain quiet. September 30, marks 4 years. After 4 years its okay to come forward. We want to know the good, the bad and the ugly. Feel free to use the anonymous tip link, Facebook, or send an email to There are so many misconceptions and assumptions. The facts and truths would be wonderful to have. This information could lead to finding Kelli so that our community can put one mystery to rest.

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.

Missing you Foundation Radio Show


Tonight Blog Talk Radio will feature Kellisue’s case. Missing you Foundation is making this possible. We work close with this organization and have formed close friendship through our passion for missing people.  We appreciate helping our efforts to find Kelli and raise awareness about her case. Please tune in tonight at 8pm to take a closer look into our efforts to find 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!

Missing Person’s Day was an enlightening experience. The amount of people missing in New York State is shocking. Raising awareness for our missing loved ones is something we all have in common.  A day does not go by that we do not think of Kellisue.

Our next mission is one of hope we will hold a vigil location to be announced. This will be on or around June 18. Our hope is we have a good turn out. The past events have been disappointing. We need support and a lot of it. When the details are solid there will be an update here and an event posted in Facebook.

We would like to thank the Lyall’s and the Center of Hope for making Missing Person’s Day possible. Giving the missing a voice is important. We are grateful for the opportunity to  tell our story.

Truck Driver Theory

Kelli’s husband provided us today with the information that Kelli took off with a truck driver the night she vanished. Could it be Kelli is traveling the interstates with an unknown truck driver? We ask again for help from the public. Please notify the police or use the anonymous tip line provided here if you have any information. Kelli would look different now if she is still with us, she may be heavier, have long hair. We don’t know keep an open mind and keep your eyes open.  The slightest detail might make a difference.
