Please Help Teresa Butler's Family

It is so sad, that likely people know what happened to Teresa and while they could bring comfort and closure to this loving family have remainded silent thus far.

RISCO, MO (KFVS) - Rumors or clues? To this day, tips continue to pour in regarding the disappearance of Teresa Butler.

Five years after she vanished, authorities say they continue to get calls claiming they know what happened to her. But police say they're still waiting on that one call or email that will bring her family closure.

"We've heard from about the most horrible thing you can imagine," said Butler's sister, Brenda Wilson. "We have other people tell us she's still out there."

Jan. 25 marked the five year anniversary. Her husband Dale came home from working the night shift to find their two sons home alone. Teresa was gone. Now Teresa's sister, Brenda Wilson says she believes people close to Risco know more than they let on.

"I think there's a lot of people that know what happened," said Wilson. "They just don't want to get involved.

From the home, electronics were missing, and there was a random call from Teresa's cell phone to a home in southeast Missouri with no connection to Teresa. Wilson says callers phone her from across the country.

"A lot of them have family that are connected to this area and they will hear something," said Wilson.

She says it's hard to tell fact from fiction. Stories range from where she could be buried, to where she could be living. Wilson say there's been so many rumors the stories can be overwhelming.

"There's just been so much it's hard to tell what's true. We've probably heard the truth. I honestly think we have," said Wilson.

"In one sense I'm thankful that five years later people are still talking about it," said New Madrid County Sheriff Terry Stevens. .
