Maple Grove Police, Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI continue to search the home of Amy Sue Pagnac’s parents on the 9700 block of Hemlock Lane N. in Maple Grove.
Amy went missing in 1989 from the Holiday Gas Station on Central Avenue in Osseo. She and her father Marshal Midden stopped at the gas station on the way home from a visit to the family’s organic farm near Cambridge. According to Midden, Amy waited in the car while he went inside to use the restroom. Midden reported upon returning to his car that Amy had disappeared. Amy has never been seen again.
Investigators have been on the scene executing a search warrant since Sunday morning, May 18. Crews of up to 30 people have been on the scene assisting with the investigation.
These investigators will continue to work 24-hours a day until the work is done. The police department is using all the means necessary for it to process the inside of the house through the search warrant.
Maple Grove Police Captain Keith Terlinden said he was not sure crews would be done executing the search warrant by Friday. “Some of the items in the search warrant are taking a little bit longer, so its possible we’re going to work through the weekend,” he said.
Capt. Terlinden said at a press conference, “No specific tip lead to the search, it was just a process of the investigation.”
He added the Maple Grove Police Department has been investigating the case actively for the past 24 years.
According to Capt. Terlinden, the parents are not named as suspects at this time, nor are there any suspects in the case.
“The police department is Amy’s voice at this point,” he said. “We will do everything we can to bring Amy home. We will use every resource available.”
The department is asking anyone that remembers anything about Amy to call the Maple Grove Police Detective Jon Wetternach at 763-494-6199 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
