Holly has been located and she is safe! Thank you everyone for sharing!

In the basement of MOA, there is an entire Bloomington Police Dept.. Hopefully they would have, but using CC transactions possibly, with their camera's to see if they could get some clues. If she was on social media, its possible to figure out exactly where she was, & what the situation was. Keeping eye's open in Bloomington.

Hope they find her soon

Shared in Cottage Grove, Mn. Hope she is found quickly.

I sincerely pray she is found safe and unharmed and receives the medical assistance she requires. I think it is totally amazing that everyone is mentioning where they are sharing this info from. I am going to exploit this in South Africa and encourage all to do so. We have children especially, missing every 2-3 minutes throughout SA and the end results are generally extremely devastating. Maybe I can be a little voice. Thanks.🗣 👩‍💻👼👼👼

Praise the lord she is found safe !!!

That is the BEST NEWS EVER!!

Someone knows something-please tell someone, so she can be found and brought home!

shared from Le Mars Iowa- Ice Cream Capital of the World- pray she's found safe

I am devastated by this. I pray that she didn't suffer and that she didn't know what would happen. I will be watching to see who could possibly have done this to her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family at this time. When will this stop?

I just read that they not 100% it's her. They said it's a possibility.

It was an illegal. He led them to her body in a field😢😢

I hope they get that POS that took her life! They have close to $400,000 to make that happen. Be happy in Heaven Mollie. Prayers to her family and friends

Mandy's bench that is permanently placed at the State Fair grounds, one of Mandy’s favorite places. It's been 5 years since Mandy went missing and it's coming up on 5 years since Mandy was brought back home to us. She brought together a group of people to rally with her brother. Some of us knew her, others did not. But together, we formed Minnesota United to help find Mandy, Danielle and Kira. After Mandy was found, we continued to help families with missing loved ones. 5 years later, we are almost 25,000 strong. It's mindblowing to us. We have helped countless families to bring their loved ones home. Mandy's legacy will live on forever through the hearts of those who loved her, as well as several memorials throughout Eden Prairie and Duluth. Now she will be forever remembered at the State Fair. She is greatly missed by her family and friends. We love you Mandy!! 💜💜💜💜

The bench is located at Dan Patch/Cooper. In front of oven baked brownies stand.

Just saw this on the Fox 9 page. Hope you don’t mind that I commented and directed people to your fb page. The more eyes, the better!

My daughter worked with Mandy when she went missing. Searched for her when she could. She always speaks to how Mandy made her laugh at work and that they had good times together. Know that your sister/daughter touched many lives and she is greatly missed by many. We will be looking for this bench when we go to the fair.

I was thinking of Mandy a few days ago and wondering about your family. I had done some searching about Anarae, reading over some of the case...things I couldn't bare to read a few years ago. This time of year brings pause. Peace to you all. The bench is great!

It is not what you're handed, it's what you do with what you've been handed that is so helpful in life. You and your works are phenomenal. Thanks for helping.

Erin Mae, I am sure we will find this on Thursday ❤

Thank you for the wonderful work you do to provide help, hope and support for so many families!

Love the bench! I'll look for it, sit and rest for a bit, and think of Mandy and her family.

Mandy was an inspiration to everyone she met.❤

Mandy will never ever be forgotten 💜

I love that it's yellow!!! My fav!!!

Very cool!

💜

💜

Made a point to stop at her bench and pay our respects. For all those who have gone missing. We never give up hope for your safe return.

Please read.

I read on a family members page that they have determined that she did not go missing that night but it was actually the next morning. She was supposed to go on a field trip for work and had a wear a certain red shirt and that is missing so they believe she went missing while leaving for that.

Sadly John Fanning's body was recovered from the lake today. Please say a prayer for his family and friends.

www.wcmpradio.com/single-post/2018/07/09/Man-Missing-in-Sturgeon-Lake-Found-Drowned

***PLEASE NOTE***
We are very aware of the missing boater, John Fanning. However at this time, Pine County Sheriff's Office is not asking for the public's help. Because we work closely with LE and require help from them when we are actively working cases, we will not promote searches until they reach out for the public's help. We will then speak with them to make sure this is ok and at that point, we will post search info on our page. We respect the Sheriff's department and their request for people to stay away from search areas and we suggest you do the same as it only delays their process. Thank you!
