Mother of missing Perinton woman still looking for answers 10 years later | News
This Friday, December 9, will mark 10 years since the disappearance of a Perinton woman.
Sharon Shechter was last seen turning on Christmas lights on the front porch of her home. Her van was found at a Days Inn Hotel on Chili Avenue in Gates but that is the only piece of evidence police have ever found in her disappearance.
Ten years has gone by but time hasn't made life any easier for Sandy Poole. Sharon was her only daughter.
The investigators who had been working on the case for so many years have now retired and there are new people assigned to it.
Today, Poole showed News 10NBC new fliers and cards that she had made with information about Sharon and her picture. Poole says that while she finds comfort in her grandchildren, a part of her heart left with Sharon.
She thinks about her daughter every day, even dreams about her. She prays for the day when she will have closure. “It’s a long time not to have closure. Somebody knows something out there. If they would just come forward.”
Shechter’s friend Diane Oakes said, “To see my friend Sandy Poole, which is Sharon's mom, go through what she's had to go through in the past 10 years it is just, is heartbreaking.”
Sharon Shechter's three children live with their father. The two girls are now 15 and 17 and her son is 19.
