Vigil for Cortney Fry

October 19, 2004

Three months after she disappeared, there's still no word on the fate of Cortney Fry. The young Lancaster County mother vanished just two weeks after giving birth to a bby girl.

As Angela Watson reports, her family is trying to bring attention back to the case, in the hopes of finding more information.

As candles flicker in the cool autumn air, people gather in a Columbia park to pray.
Cortney's Aunt, Dawn Fry:
“That we have answers one way or another, that we have answers.”

The Fry's are hoping this vigil will jog a memory.
“Maybe to get it back in the media, to get it out there again.”

It's been three months since Cortney Fry vanished from her Columbia apartment. From the beginning, investigators have had few leads and today the story is no different. Her father, Skip Fry, reported his daughter missing July 20th. Her boyfriend was the last to see her, claiming he came home to find their two week old baby alone in the apartment.

Her father hopes she simply walked away.
“Hopefully she pops up and everything is just great that's what I'm hoping for.”

Police have called her disappearance suspicious. Her clothing was found at a garbage incinerator just outside of town. While they have found no evidence of foul play, they have also found no reason for her to run. Leaving her family with nothing but questions.

“If somebody knows something please get in touch let us know we have numbers out there everywhere somebody let us know.”

The number to call with information is 1-800-322-1913.

Family looks to national TV, radio on missing-woman case
Cortney Fry of Columbia disappeared 6 months ago.

By Cindy Stauffer
Lancaster New Era
Published: Jan 07, 2005

LANCASTER COUNTY, PA - As the six-month anniversary of Cortney Fry’s disappearance approaches, her family members are working to make sure no one forgets her.They have started a reward fund. They are talking to interviewers on national radio and television shows. They have posted two Web sites.

They are doing what they can to generate any information about Fry, a 19-year-old mother who disappeared from her Columbia apartment last July, just weeks after giving birth to a daughter.

“We hope it will bring more attention to the case,” said Jodi Stauffer, a local resident who is acting as spokeswoman for Fry’s mother. “One of the main reasons we are doing this is because we need to feel like we’re doing something.”

Two or three county detectives are working full time on the case, said Lancaster Chief County Detective Michael Landis.

“We continue to get tips,” Landis said.

No arrests have been made in the case.

In hopes of generating more information, Stauffer and County Detective Joseph Geesey appeared Dec. 8 on “On the Record with Greta Van Sustern” on the Fox News Channel. Van Sustern interviewed the pair about Fry’s disappearance.

Stauffer also was interviewed on nationally syndicated radio shows hosted by Ed Buggs and Liberty Broadcasting in November.

And she is hoping to appear on Montel Williams’ TV talk show in the next few months.

“I think it will bring more attention to the case,” Stauffer said. “Maybe someone who lives in another state knows something. Maybe they were visiting Lancaster County and saw something, or they know someone in Lancaster County who mentioned something to them.”

The family also is asking for information via two Web sites: http://www.findcortney.com and http://www.freewebs.com/cortney fry.

The sites both have guest books, where people from all over the country have posted messages of sympathy and theories about Fry’s disappearance.

The family also has held vigils in Columbia and handed out buttons with Fry’s photo on them.

Fry was last seen by her boyfriend, Micah J. Stewart, when he left the couple’s Fifth Street apartment.

Stewart told police that when he returned 45 minutes later, his girlfriend was gone, having left behind the couple’s then-2-week-old daughter, Giavanni. (She is now being cared for by members of the Stewart family and is seen regularly by Fry’s family.)

Stewart didn’t report his girlfriend missing. It was her father who contacted police two days later, when he stopped at the apartment and Stewart told him Fry had disappeared.

Fry and Stewart had been having problems before her disappearance, friends said. Police had charged Stewart with disorderly conduct after being called to a dispute between the two about a week before Fry disappeared.

Stewart had questioned whether he was the baby’s father. The couple took a paternity test, which friends said confirmed Stewart was the father.

To make a donation to the reward fund, make checks payable to: Eric G. Warfel f/b/o Cortney Fry Reward Fund. Write “for deposit only” in the check notation.

Checks should be sent to: Eric G. Warfel, c/o Commerce Bank, P.O. Box 1923, 1803 Mt. Rose Ave., Suite A-7, York, PA 17405-1923.

Lancaster Crimestoppers also is $1,000 reward for information leading police to Fry’s whereabouts.

Missing woman's remains found by hunters

Associated Press
Posted on Mon, Jan. 24, 2005

LANCASTER, Pa. - An autopsy confirmed Monday that skeletal remains found by hunters are those of a murdered 19-year-old Columbia woman who disappeared in July, two weeks after she gave birth, officials said.

The remains were identified through dental records as those of Cortney Fry, officials said.

"There is no doubt ... this is a homicide," Lancaster County district attorney Donald Totaro said.

Totaro would not discuss how Fry died, saying it would compromise the investigation. Police have not arrested anyone in her disappearance and death, and Totaro would not comment on whether authorities had any suspects.

A group of hunters walking on a dirt road in Manor Township, southeast of Columbia, found the remains partially hidden beneath a bush on Saturday morning. Investigators worked for about 16 hours in a snowstorm to examine the scene.

Fry gave birth to a daughter, Giavanni, about two weeks before she disappeared. She had been living with her boyfriend, Micah J. Stewart. Her father, Charles, reported his daughter missing after Stewart told him that she had not been home for a day.

A Statement from the Family:

My name is Amber (Fry) Sliger, my brothers daughter, Cortney Fry gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named Giavanni Athena Stewart on July 4th, 2004. Cortney was reported as a missing person on July 20th. We are sad to say that Cortney's remains have been found 6 months later, Jan. 22, 2005, she had been brutally murdered. The family finds it hard to express their loss in words. How can you?

Cortney has left behind a precious little girl. It saddens us that Gia will not know the touch of her mother, but she will know how much her mother loved her. And how much her mother was loved. The family would like to thank all those who have expressed their sympathy, concern and hope for the future. We want to provide a safe and secure future for Giavanni.

Those who wish to donate to Giavanni's trust fund can send it to the address below. (They can make the check out to Amber Sliger or Giavanni Stewart.)
