Plainfield - It's been six years to the day since a west side woman vanished.
The headlines of Molly Datillo's disappearance have faded, but her family's persistence hasn't. Relatives believe the 23-year-old college student was murdered. They still hope someone will speak out with new information so they can find her remains and bring her killer to justice.
Benjamin Dattilo spoke at The Living Christ Lutheran Church Tuesday about the disappearance of his sister, Molly Dattilo.
Molly Dattilo, who would be 29 years old, was last seen by her family and friends on July 6, 2004, at the Westlake Apartments. Later that night around 11:00 pm, she made a call from a pay phone at the Thornton's gas station at 5760 Crawfordsville Road in Indianapolis.
Police had a suspect but not enough evidence to file charges. The family says he's now in prison on unrelated crimes. The family filed a civil complaint against that man, John Shelton, for "battery leading to permanent and probable fatal injury to Molly Dattilo." Shelton's father has also been added to the suit, but he is out of state. The case is awaiting a hearing.
"In the six years that my family has gone through a roller coaster nightmare of not knowing where she is....I don't know how you can ever move forward from that. You move forward, but I don't know how you can ever give up the hope to find her," said Keri Dattilo, Molly's cousin.
Since Molly's disappearance, her family successfully campaigned for Molly Dattilo's Law, which was passed three years ago by the Indiana legislature. The law provides procedures and guidelines for law enforcement to follow in missing adult cases.
