Detectives from the Missing Persons Unit and Homicide Section are working collaboratively to locate Pangracs.

The EPS’ Search Managers Unit in conjunction with the investigative team will be conducting a coordinated search in the rural area of Range Road 233 and Township Road 514 today, Saturday, August 10, 2019, in relation to Pangracs disappearance. A series of events preceding her disappearance have suggested she had been in the area.

"Due to the large area of land we are searching, we are also asking residents who live or have property in the area of Range Road 233 and Township Road 514 to check their properties, sheds and other outbuildings for anything unusual," says Det. Jared Buhler with the EPS Homicide Section. "It is possible that Ms. Pangracs may have sought shelter or left personal property in the area."

Investigators also believe Pangracs was in the Bruderheim and Beaumont area in the hours leading up to her disappearance, sometime between the evening of Friday, June 7 and Saturday June 8, 2019. She is believed to have been travelling in a white 2011 Cadillac CTS, which had visible damage on the front passenger bumper.

Investigators are asking residents with video surveillance of any pedestrian or vehicle traffic between 3:30 and 6 a.m. on Saturday, June 8, 2019, along or around the specified route to contact police immediately.

Pangracs’ disappearance is considered out of character and the circumstances leading up to her disappearance have caused authorities to become further concerned for her well-being. Police would also like to speak to anyone who had contact with Pangracs in the weeks leading up to her disappearance.

Anyone with information regarding Pangracs whereabouts or the circumstances surrounding her disappearance is encouraged to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.p3tips.com/250
