Chippewa Falls (WQOW) – Jayme Closs’ escape has had a profound ripple effect on other families whose loved ones are missing.
The Boiteau family has been looking for Shannah Boiteau for nearly three years, but now they have even more faith she will be found alive.
Boiteau grew up in Chippewa Falls and went missing in St. Cloud, Minnesota June 22, 2016 when she was 22-years-old.
Her boyfriend told police she ran from his car into a wooded area and hasn’t been seen since.
News 18 talked to Boiteau’s mom Angela Starck. She said Boiteau is kindhearted, loves helping others and adores her daughter Milli.
She said Boiteau had a history of addiction but got clean once she had Milli.
Starck has a message for whoever may have his daughter.
“Just let her go and go home,” Starck said. “She has a baby that asks for her and I don’t want to have to explain to this baby why she doesn’t have a mom, or where her mom is.
Starck is still handing out fliers and sharing photos of her missing daughter.
She said everyone should see her face because maybe someday she could come home too.
