The weather conditions and the overall situation didn’t make it any easier for Marcle to hold on to hope and remain optimistic. Even if they did eventually find Annette, what condition would she be in?
It was freezing, it was wet, and it was dark. Everything was going against them until they finally came across something that would shed some light. They were about to discover something that would lead them onto the right track toward Annette and the dogs.
Marcel Was Taking It Badly
Marcel was heartbroken. He began imagining his life without Annette and how terrible that would be. They were together for more than three decades and there was no way he was allowing their life together to end like this.
Never in his wildest dreams could he imagine that the previous morning was, possibly, the last one by his beloved wife.
Not Giving Up Yet
The rescue teams weren't going to stop the searches no matter what the outcomes were. It didn't matter if Annette and the dogs were dead or alive, they were coming home.
The clouds blanketed the horizon, the temperatures yet again dropped and a quilt of darkness covered the sky. The second day came to an end and the rescue teams had no choice but to postpone the searches to the following morning. Would Annette ever be found?
A Witness by Suprise
Marc Herr was a local resident who used to drive through the woods regularly. On the day Annette disappeared, he was in the mountains and stopped for a cigarette break. He saw Annette with her dogs that day, however, thought nothing of it at the time.
She was a regular woman with three regular dogs. Nothing out of the ordinary. If only he would have known that his break would be the gate to solving Annetee's mysterious disappearance!
All it took was the evening news broadcast, to make him realize the woman reported is in fact the same woman he spotted while he was smoking his cigarette.
Herr told the CTV channel "I saw it on the news and thought to myself, oh my god, I'd seen her and the dogs". There was a woman out there in trouble and he was the only person who had seen her that same morning.
