    Missing woman’s family wants marker where she was last seen

    The family of a missing woman applied for a historical marker to be placed at the roadside where she was last seen in 2004.

    Maura Murray’s family is seeking support for their application to the state of New Hampshire to install a historical marker in Haverhill, where Murray was last seen alive walking on the side of the road, the Caledonian Record reported Wednesday.

    The family has tied a blue ribbon on a roadside tree as a remembrance, but wrote on a website dedicated to Murray that the landowner informed them of plans to cut the tree down.


    “We must be pro-active to preserve the sacred place that my family and thousands of people visit each and every year,” the Murray’s wrote in their online statement.

    Maura Murray was a 21-year-old nursing student at the University of Massachusetts. She disappeared on Feb. 9, 2004, after crashing her car.

    In June, Murray’s family opposed a bill passed by the New Hampshire House of Representatives that would remove roadside memorials in the state, the newspaper reported. The bill is currently tabled in the state senate.

    The Murray family is collecting signatures to support their application for a historical marker.
