MISSING WOMAN'S 1997 CASE PUT ONLINE

Watertown Daily Times (NY) - June 20, 2006
Author: DAVID C. SHAMPINE TIMES STAFF WRITER


Jefferson County Sheriff John P. Burns has turned to an Web site of volunteers hoping to solve a nine-year mystery about a woman's disappearance. Jennifer Jean Gordon, who lived at 710 State St. when she was last seen in September 1997, was a 30-year-old victim of schizophrenia, alcohol and drug abuse. Her disappearance was not reported for 40 days because she had a history of running away.

Last week, she became Case File 1984DFNY on "The Doe Network ," which, according to a USA Today story, is an Internet-based alliance of more than 600 volunteers in 23 countries. The association attempts to match John and Jane Does - unidentified bodies - for families.

Lt. Michael S. Peterson, a member of the sheriff's office, became aware of the Doe Network while attending a training session in Virginia, and informed the sheriff. Detective Gary M. Belch, who is now responsible for the case, made the contacts that culminated with the opening of a new file on the network Wednesday.

"We'd like to see some kind of closure for the family, one way or another," Mr. Belch said.

The page for Miss Gordon, www.doenetwork.org/cases/1984dfny.html, reads "Gordon was last seen in Watertown, New York on September 10, 1997. She has a history of running away, but in the past, she has maintained contact with her family via a phone call home every couple of weeks. This time, there were no phone calls."

She often stopped taking her medication for schizophrenia "because she feels there is nothing wrong with her," and at the time of her disappearance, she was not taking the medicine.

Detective Belch confirmed there are no dental records or fingerprints available, as specified on the site. There is a DNA sample for comparison, provided by her mother, Alice M. Gordon, Dexter, he said.

Mr. Belch said the sheriff's office has not been ignoring the case. Her data were submitted to the Mid-Atlantic Great Lakes Organized Crime Law Enforcement Network, which would identify any kind of use of her name, date of birth, Social Security number, former addresses, phone numbers, license numbers, credit card numbers - anything attached to her file.

Assisted by a cadaver dog handled by state Trooper Ronald G. Morse, North Syracuse, Detective Belch on Sept. 11, 2003 conducted a search at 710 State St., shortly before the structure was to be demolished, he said.

He said he also teamed with Watertown police Detective Joseph R. Donoghue in a joint Jennifer Gordon-Alicia Wasilewski search effort. Mrs. Wasilewski has been missing since May 1996. They searched fields south of the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building, looking for vegetation with different shades of green, a possible indication of "disturbed soil." And the city's engineering department drew up charts of sewer lines, but the lines of interest had been installed since the two women disappeared, Mr. Belch said.

Over the years, up to 15 police agencies have contacted the sheriff's office about discovered unidentified women's bodies, Mr. Belch said, but none of the leads panned out.

It's been nine years since Jennifer Gordon, 29, was last seen. Her family says it feels like it was yesterday and would give anything to have her back.

George Gordon, her father, said his daughter’s son would like to see her again.

"She's got a little boy that definitely wants to see his mother again,” Gordon said. “He's 12 years old now and he probably doesn't remember too much about her because he was three when she went missing."

Love for missing Watertown woman still strong

It's been nine years since 29-year-old Jennifer Gordon was last seen. Her family says it feels like it was yesterday and would give anything to have her back.

Gordon's case is now getting a little bit of extra help. It's featured on the "Doe Network".

That's a web site run by nearly 600 volunteers in more than 23 countries. It's designed to match unidentified bodies with those reported missing. The Gordon's hope it's a place where clues can be found.

"Even if it's something that's old, that may seem little or nothing, if they called them and shared it with them, it's possible something could come of it," Gordon said.

John Burns, Jefferson County sheriff, said his hopes are high for the system.

"We're hoping by using this with any missing person, this may aid us in solving some of the open cases we might have," he said.

Burns says this case, like all missing persons case, will not be closed until it comes to a conclusion.

That's something the Gordon's pray for every night.

"We'd like to bring a closure to this one way or the other, whatever it may be,” George Gordon said. “It's been a long time."

The Gordon's have even created a web site of their own, with all the information they have, trying to do what they say is everything they can to find out what happened to their daughter and why.

Jennifer Jean Gordon was last seen in the fall 1997 in the city of Watertown. At the time of her disappearance at age 29 she lived at 703 State Street, Watertown and also lived with her mother in Glen Park. This artist's rendition suggests what she may look like today at age 46. If you have information on her whereabouts, details of her disappearance, or if you had contact with her prior to or after her disappearance, you are encouraged to contact the Sheriff's Office at 315-786-2676 or email us at detectives@co.jefferson.ny.us. All information will be kept confidential. Please share and help us bring Jenny home.

I found an error in the reports of Jennifer's residence in Watertown New York. One report claims that she lived at 703 State Street and another report claims that it was 710 State Street. Since 703 State St. is an empty lot, I think it's safe to assume that Jennifer's address was 710 State St. The property is an older home that has been converted into apartments.

Jennifer's mother waited 40 days to report her missing. She was one week out of a community psychiatric facility for schizophrenia.


Details of Disappearance
Gordon, resident of Glen Park, was last seen in Watertown, New York on September 10, 1997. She has a history of running away, but in the past, she has maintained contact with her family via a phone call home every couple of weeks. Her disappearance was therefore not reported for 40 days. This time, there were no phone calls. She left behind a 3 year old son. She was at the time involved in a custody dispute with her mother regarding Jennifer's son.
Jennifer can be considered a drifter of sorts having spent time in the Carolina's and Florida. The Sheriff's Department interviewed her former boyfriend during the investigation, but nobody was named as a "person of interest."
