Search For Woman Missing Since '92 Renewed


TOWN OF MENASHA, Wis. (AP) -- Town of Menasha authorities say Monday they are searching for the body of a 20-year-old woman who disappeared in 1992 after a convicted child kidnapper admitted his involvement.

Menasha police chief Rod McCants says they're following up on information provided in November by 48-year-old Larry DeWayne Hall, serving a life sentence at a federal prison in North Carolina, in the disappearance of Laurie Depies (DEPP'-ees).

Hall told authorities he encountered Depies in 1992 while she was working, followed her and lured her to his van. Police caution no evidence linking Hall to Depies has been found, but that he had information that wasn't publicized.

Hall did not have a lawyer present when he was questioned, and police did not return a message seeking comment on whether he has one now.
