ISHPEMING, Mich. (WWJ/AP) – State police still are searching for two sisters from Nebraska and Oklahoma who have been missing for a week during a trip to visit family and sightsee in Michigan.
Det. Sgt. Jeff Marker said Saturday there have been many tips but still no sign of 52-year-old Leslie Roy and 56-year-old Lee Marie Wright.
The sisters checked out of a motel, ate breakfast and got gas in Ishpeming in the Upper Peninsula on April 10 — and they haven’t been seen or heard from since.
“The plan was to do a trip up to Michigan to see their sister, which they did and they had a good visit there,” State Trooper Ryan Giroux told WWJ’s Beth Fisher. “Their itinerary was to leave Ishpeming and head for Mackinaw City for a couple days, and then travel from Mackinaw down to Kalamazoo to visit more family — but they never arrived.”
The women are said to be traveling in a white 2010 Ford Explorer with a Nebraska license plate number of either “TVC 973” or “TTM 081.”
Roy, who lives in Valley, Nebraska, is described as a white female about 5’3″ tall and 125 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.
Wright, who lives in Depew, Oklahoma, is described as a white female about 5’1″ tall and 135 pounds with dark brown hair and blue eyes.
Anyone with information on the women’s whereabouts is urged to contact Michigan State Police at 906-475-9922.
