IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich. (WZMQ) – Tuesday marks seven years since a Florence, Wis. woman disappeared, allowing for new legal proceedings to begin in the investigation.
The Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office says Nancy Renkas has been missing since July 18, 2016. The seven-year anniversary of her disappearance will now permit “certain legal proceedings to take place to benefit the investigation,” according to the department.
The sheriff’s office says the Michigan Attorney General’s Office has been consulted and is also helping with the case.
According to the Wisconsin Department of Justice, Renkas left her home in Florence, Wis. to visit a relative in Iron Mountain, Mich. The Wisconsin DOJ says Renkas told her relative shewas also there to look at a camping trailer that was located in Menominee.
Renkas was last seen at the Super One Foods parking lot on July 18, 2016 getting into a white SUV for the meeting of the camping trailer. She was last seen wearing a dark blue t-shirt and blue jeans. The DOJ says Renkas walks with a limp and has an L-shaped scar on her left hand.
The white SUV was located and police interviewed someone, but no arrests have been made in this case.
The Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank those that have reached out to offer information regarding the investigation and continue to encourage anyone else to come forward.
