Liz Montgomery is reporting for Porcupine Soup that the world-famous dive team, Adventures with Purpose, a group dedicated to solving missing person cases, was in Greene County this week, hoping to provide information helpful to the family of Audrey May Herron. “Adventures with Purpose is in Catskill diving and searching for my mom,” Sonsia Rae Marie Elliott told the Facebook group “Missing mother of three.... Audrey May Turk Herron” on September 28. The group travels nationwide and since its founding in 2019 has solved 24 missing person cases. The group provides its services free to families. Elliott posted to the Facebook group late on Sept. 29: "Adventures with Purpose called me this afternoon and they have concluded their searches for my mom today. All bodies of water along my mom's known route home as well as every possible alternate route home were looked at. ... Neither my mom nor her jeep were found." Elliott continued, "Please do not be sorry for us! We are feeling grateful. This is super helpful information because we can rule out the theory that she went off the side of the road accidentally on her way home from work. The current investigator on my mom's case is highly motivated to solve it and I am hopeful that he will." Last month marked 20 years since Herron disappeared. Elliott, Herron’s oldest child, was only 10 years old at the time. The Freehold mother of three was last seen driving west on State Route 23 in Catskill around 11 p.m. on August 29, 2002. A nurse, Herron had just finished a shift at the former Greene County Long Term Care in Jefferson Heights. She was reported missing by her family the next morning. Neither Herron nor her black 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee have ever been found. Anyone with any information is urged to call State Police in Catskill at 518-622-8600.
