Search in Manchester, New Hampshire regarding 1980 missing person’s case of Denise Daneault

New Hampshire Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald and Manchester Police Chief Enoch F. Willard announce that a search will take place on Tuesday, May 15, 2018, in Manchester, in connection with a missing person’s case.

On June 8, 1980, 25-year-old Denise Ann Daneault went out socializing in Manchester and has never been seen or heard from since. Denise was a Manchester resident who lived on Hayward Street at the time and was a divorced mother of two children.

Last year, law enforcement authorities searched the wooded area behind the public housing buildings located at
541 Kimball Street in Manchester for evidence related to Denise Daneault’s disappearance. Authorities will be at that same area today preparing for a search on Tuesday for evidence related to Daneault’s disappearance. The search will be conducted by personnel from the Manchester Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation. Depending on the results, the search is expected to last at least one day.

Anyone who has information about Denise Daneault is asked to call Detective Lucas Hobbs at the Manchester Police Department (603) 792-5519.
