MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) – Investigators in Vermont are planning to meet with their counterparts in New Hampshire to compare notes after the third woman went missing in the region since February, a sheriff said.

The Lamoille County sheriff’s department is working with the Vermont State Police in their search for Jodie Whitney, said Lamoille County Sheriff Roger Marcoux.

The only common thread between the cases is the vehicles, said Marcoux.

“We’ve got three women missing and in each case there has been an abandoned vehicle found,” Marcoux said Tuesday.

The latest case began last Thursday when the husband of 35-year-old Jodie Whitney of Johnson reported his wife missing.

Marcoux said Whitney never arrived at her job on Thursday morning at the Stoweflake Resort in Stowe.

The Whitney disappearance comes in the aftermath of the February disappearance of Maura Murray, a University of Massachusetts student, who had a minor, single vehicle traffic accident in Haverhill, N.H. On March 19, Brianna Maitland of Sheldon disappeared after leaving her job in Montgomery.

Haverhill is roughly 100 miles from Montgomery and Johnson is between the two, about 26 miles from Montgomery.
