Family members encourage anyone with information about the Nov. 22, 1979, disappearance of Marie Blee, who was 15 at the time, to tell someone what they know. Marie’s father, Paul, asked people to tell anyone — from law enforcement to a priest — as long as it helps him and his wife, Mona, find their daughter.

They added that sometimes the smallest piece of information can break a case.

To report information to law enforcement, call Moffat County Crime Stoppers at 824-3535 or Routt County Crime Stoppers at 870-6226. Callers may remain anonymous and are eligible for up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in Marie’s disappearance.

Paul and Mona Blee hold a framed poster of their daughter, Marie, who was last seen on Nov. 21, 1979, and reported missing on Nov. 22, when she was 15. The photo used for the poster was a school picture from Hayden High School, and is the last known picture taken of Marie. Before this photo of Paul and Mona was taken, Paul said, "It will be like the family portrait we never had."
