A new podcast is shedding light on a missing person’s case that rocked one New Mexico town.
It’s been three years since Holly White disappeared from Taos. It’s also been three years of interviews, clues, endless questions and still no answers.
“It’s heartbreaking,” said Elaine Graves, the private investigator looking into White’s case. “Every year that goes by, I say, ‘I can’t believe it’s been another year.'”
However, that hasn’t stopped her loved ones from searching for her.
“People are keeping an eye out for her and so I continue to follow up on every single lead that we get,” said Graves.
On May 6, 2016, White was supposed to meet up with a friend but never showed. Her SUV was later found at the Gorge Bridge, but she was never found.
Her family says she was not suicidal. In fact, she was preparing to move to Albuquerque with her husband, but that wouldn’t happen.
Search and rescue crews scoured the waters below but came up empty-handed. As Graves’ search resumes this spring, it will take a technological turn as they try DNA testing to help solve this mystery.
“We may have secured a source, also, for DNA testing, which is really great,” said Graves.
White’s case is also getting the attention of the Mysteriously Missing podcast, documenting the disappearances of people from across the nation. Justine and Karen, the two women behind the podcast, hope it will serve as another way to inform the public and help the families of the missing.
“Any help just getting these cases out there and helping these families, it’s so much appreciated,” they said during the podcast episode about Holly, released in early April.
Graves continues to operate the ‘Find Holly White’ Facebook page and tip line, hoping this is the year they get some answers. The tip line is 575-613-3415.
“If anybody remembers anything, if anyone thinks they see Holly, anything at all that you think might be helpful, or maybe you don’t think it’s helpful but I might think it’s helpful, call that number,” said Graves.
White’s family is offering a $20,000 reward for help bringing her home. There is also a GoFundMe site set up to help fund search efforts.
