Missing person case
October 9, 2008 - Bill Ackerbauer
It's been a long time since we last had this kind of news happen in little old Johnstown: Police combing the woods with corpse-sniffing dogs, helicopters flying overhead, friends and neighbors wringing their hangs with worry.
A lot of readers have expressed their alarm and sympathy for the family of Kelliesue Ackernecht, who disappeared last week around the time her husband's car was found burning.
Earlier this week, I took a spin through Frog Hollow to see if I could see the place where the car must have been. The black, charred spot on the pavement was hard to miss. (See photo at right).
Online readers have posted a number of conflicting comments and questions on the geography involved here, so I've put up a map here (see it at right) to make things clearer. The car was just a stone's throw from the Rail Trail, where it winds through Frog Hollow along the bank of the Cayadutta Creek. The creek is at the bottom of a deep gully there, and I can imagine how hard it would be to thoroughly search the area.

This is a screenshot of a Google Map of the area. I've marked the spot where the car was found burning in red. The spot marked "A" is 330 W. Main St., the Ackernechts' residence. (Click on map to see larger image.)
