State police were at a park in New Canaan on Monday in connection with the disappearance of Jennifer Dulos, a mother of five who has been missing for more than two-and-a-half years.
Police were in Waveny Park in New Canaan, the park her vehicle was found near after she was reported missing, and they have left for the day after clearing some brush by hand and by tractor.
The last time anyone saw Jennifer was when she dropped her children off at school in New Canaan on the morning of May 24, 2019. There has been no sign of her since, and officials said she has been presumed dead.
After Jennifer was reported missing, New Canaan Police said they checked her home and were not able to contact her. In the garage, they found bloodstains.
Jennifer’s vehicle, a 2017 Chevy Suburban, was found on Lapham Road near Waveny Park. Police were nearby on Monday.
