Daughter Searches for Answers to Her Mother’s Disappearance 42 Years Ago


The daughter of a woman who went missing 42 years ago has started a GoFundMe account to help her find her mother’s remains.

The investigation began after Annita Price disappeared on her way to work in Marshall County.

Her car was found, but she was never seen again.

Her daughter was five years old at the time, but she has followed the case closely.

Now, five different cadaver sniffing dogs have indicated a spot where she believes the body was buried.

The land now belongs to a business and Annita’s daughter needs resources to be able to search for and dig up her remains.

Madonna Layne, the daughter of Annita Price, told 7News “we’re trying to recover our mother’s remains from the area where we believe she was buried. The costs are going to be digging equipment, the experts to run the equipment, and then to repair the area back to its natural status once we’re finished there once the recovery is completed.”

To find out more, log onto the GoFundMe website and search “Bring Annita Home.”

They hope to be able to dig in August.

They are joined in their efforts by WVU’s forensic science, archeology and anthropology students, as well as the Cold Case Research Institute out of Atlanta.
