New hope for mother of missing Wausau woman


For the family of a missing Wausau woman, the case of three missing women found in Ohio brings new hope. Stephanie Low disappeared from her Wausau apartment in 2010. Low's mother, Claudia Blake, says she's never stopped looking for her daughter.

Blake will always remember the call.

"He said, 'I'm sorry Ms. Blake, we have no idea where your daughter is.' I think my life went numb at that moment," said Stephanie Low's mother, Claudia Blake.

Since that day, she hasn't given up.

"I have to keep going, because I have to find her," Blake added.

Low hasn't been seen in more than two and a half years, but the discovery in Ohio makes her hopeful.

"I think my daughter could be anywhere, anywhere. I just hope if she has the chance, she could come home to us, like these girls just came home to their families," Blake told Newsline 9.

Wausau police say the Stephanie Low investigation is on-going. Investigators say every bit of new information helps.

"It's very important for investigators to continue to gather information, continue to research all of the leads that come in, because in the case in Ohio, those ladies were alive. What a great ending, at least now they can start the recovery process," said Wausau Police Chief Jeff Hardel.

Blake says she's in constant contact with the Wausau Police Department.

"They answer all my questions. They're there for me, day or night," said Blake.

"They hope that Stephanie is found alive and we hope the same thing," Hardel added.

While Blake knows the odds aren't in her favor, she'll still continue to fight for her daughter.

"I know without a doubt how I would feel, just the huge relief that she's ok," said Blake.
