NEW YORK — Michael Mele seems determined to keep silent about Laura Garza, but the missing woman's family and friends showed their own determination Saturday, raising their voices above Manhattan's nighttime noise as they prayed for her.
State troopers search in the vicinity of County Route 78 and Mount Hope Road in Middletown for clues in the disappearance of Brooklyn native Laura Garza.
BLOOMINGBURG — The search for a missing Brooklyn woman who was last seen with convicted sex offender Michael Mele is shifting at this hour to Grandview Drive in Bloomingburg, a Sullivan County village near the Orange County border. Sullivan County's Wildland Search and Rescue Teams is gathering at this hour. Bloomingburg is a short drive far from Mele's Town of Wallkill home and is home to Mele's girlfriend. Searchers are walking in the woods and along the roadside of Grandview, near Horton Road. Authorities don't have any specific tip related to the area, but are searching it because it's an obvious area Mele would have been familiar with.
State police at this hour are searching an area of swampland and rolling hills several square miles large near Michael Meles Town of Wallkill apartment. The area, a bit of a no-man's-land where the City of Middletown, and the towns of Wallkill and Wawayanda meet, is being searched by state police canine teams from Troop F based in the Town of Wallkill, and Troop K from Poughkeepsie.
TOWN OF WALLKILL — A handsome 23-year-old with a pricey Town of Wallkill apartment, nice cars and a sex conviction was the last person seen with a beautiful Brooklyn girl before she , state police said. Michael Mele apparently met 25-year-old Laura Garza Tuesday night at a Manhattan nightclub called Marquee, a high-end hangout with an A-list clientele. State police said surveillance tapes from the club showed the two leave together about 4 am Wednesday, and they were later spotted together in the Newburgh area. Garza, of Bay Ridge, was reported missing the next day. Starting on Saturday, state police investigators dressed in white jumpsuits scoured Mele's home. He lived in Apartment 711 of the Regency Club housing complex. Investigators and K-9s searched Dumpsters and a wooded area at the back of the property, lifting manhole covers and picking along the edges of a shallow pond. A state police helicopter hovered overhead.
