UPDATE I Searchers find ‘evidence,’ but not woman

Search teams on foot and in the air fanned out over 268 square miles Saturday during a full-day search for Kelly Gorham, a nursing student missing for nearly two weeks. But the intensive hunt turned up no sign of Gorham and no immediate breakthrough in the case. Searchers found some undisclosed items in the woods in the vicinity of Gorham’s apartment, but officials downplayed their significance. “We found evidence. They’ll make assessments about what value they’ll have in the investigation,” said Lt. Pat Dorian of the Maine Warden Service. “Obviously, we did not find Kelly and that’s what we were hoping for.”

UPDATE II: Searchers find evidence but student remains missing

Wardens downplayed the significance of items found Saturday in woods in the vicinity of Kelly Gorham’s apartment. The items will be analyzed by detectives. “We found evidence. They’ll make assessments about what value they’ll have in the investigation,” said Lt. Pat Dorian of the Maine Warden Service. So far, state police detectives have conducted about 75 interviews and processed several cars in connection with the case. Investigators believe someone knows about her location, said Maine State Police Lt. Brian McDonough. On Friday, Gorham’s mother and authorities appealed for help. “All of you people, please, dig down deep to that goodness and if you know anything, pick up the phone. Help us find our Kelly,” Pauline Gorham said.

UPDATE III: Kelly Gorham Found Deceased in Northern New Hampshire

The body of Kelly Gorham was found in Stewartstown, NH. She was buried on land that belonged to her ex-fiance’s family in northern New Hampshire. Ex-fiance, Jason Twardus had denied any involvement in Kelly Gorham’s disappearance; however, all signs point to the obvious.

Carlson said Jason Twardus has been questioned by police since the disappearance, which came two months after the couple broke off their engagement. He said Twardus denies any involvement in Gorham’s death.

The day after they raided the Twardus home in Rochester, investigators headed to Stewartstown. “The father told them where he had a piece of land, and that’s where they found the body,” Carlson said.

He said he spoke to Jason Twardus around 3 p.m. Wednesday and he maintained his innocence. “I said, ‘Everything is pointing to you.’ He said, ‘I know it is and I’m scared to death.’ ” (Portland Press Herald)
