Confessions

And Lent admitted that she was not really there. He refused to divulge the whereabouts of her remains. He said that he had another body buried nearby and did not want that one to be found. Lent later recanted his statements. But he was convicted of the crime nonetheless. Sara has never been located. In 2013, Lent also confessed to the 1992 murder of James “Jamie” Lusher. But James’ body has never been found. Lent has never been charged in connection with Lusher’s case.

Appeal

Sara Anne Wood has been missing for over 24 years. That is twice as long as the time that she was living at home with her family. Her family had founded a missing persons nonprofit that was initially in her name. Their hope is that good will come out of the evil of the disappearance of their own daughter. But they still don’t have answers for their own daughter. Sara has never been found. As long as she has not been found, nothing can be certain. The suspect in her case, Lent, has been causing her family and other families, great pain. His charges and sentencing are unclear. What is clear, though, is that Sara’s family need answers.
