It's been two years Wednesday since an Ardoch woman disappeared, but police and family say they will not stop looking for Florence Dumontet. Now, she would be 84 years old.
Dumontet left Grand Forks on October 16th 2011 for an annual trip to visit her son and grandson in Washington state, but she never arrived.
We spoke with Dumontet's great niece tuesday. She said Dumontet made the trip driving by herself for more than ten years and never had a problem until two years ago.
Dumontet was last seen at a Town Pump Gas Station in Butte, Montana. She filled her pickup with gas, purchased the gas at the register and then left. Police did get a report five months after Dumontet disappeared that she stopped at a service station in Missoula because of car trouble. But, police have not been able to confirm she was even there because there were no cameras.
Family members say they feel like they're at a standstill with so few leads. Police say they haven't ruled out anything, including Dumontet getting lost in the Montana mountains.
Dumontet was driving a 2008 Lincoln pickup with North Dakota license plate HXY-089. She was also traveling with her dog Peaches, which hasn't been seen.
Police say this has never been a closed case and won't be. People are encouraged to contact their local police department if they have any information.
