NEW HAVEN, NY – Sunday marks the 17th anniversary of an event many people would rather never happened.
Heidi Allen disappeared between 5:45 and 7:50 a.m. April 3, 1994, from the D&W Convenience Store at Route 104 and 104B in New Haven. She was working alone that Easter Sunday.
She has not been found. She was 18 years old.
Her sister, Lisa Buske, is using her blog to keep Heidi’s memory alive.
“I have a website: http://lisabuske.weebly.com with a blog,” she said. “For the past two weeks, I have been dedicating my blogs in memory of my sister to help keep her memory alive and share Heidi in a more personal way.”
The public is invited to view the blog and share memories as well.
Buske, a teacher, still resides in New Haven.
“I am in the process of completing the revisions on a book about my sister’s disappearance and its effect on my life – as seen through the eyes of the sister,” she said.
At this time, the Oswego County Sheriff’s Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation consider the matter to be an open case.
Officers are still assigned to the investigation and continue to follow leads.
