Community members joined family of Sandra Cervone-Sollie for a special prayer service on Friday that marked the 20th anniversary of her unsolved disappearance.
Sollie went missing with her dog in 1994 at the age of 38, six and a half months pregnant. She was last seen at the Ames Plaza on Route 31 in Macedon. Her belongings were still in her home off Route 31F near the Erie Canal, but police found her purse and her dog’s collar in a trash can behind a car wash in Penfield. Her body has never been found.
Private investigator Richard Ingraham of Henrietta has spent the last 18 years trying to solve the mystery of Sollie’s sudden disappearance and bring closure to her family. Every May 23 he has been seen on the streets of Macedon handing out flyers, asking for someone to come forward, share what they know and help solve the case.
But recently, calls from people offering possible leads have dwindled, and with the help of Sollie’s nephew, Christopher Glow, and Macedon Mayor Marie Cramer, Ingraham set up a special community prayer service at the corner of routes 350 and 31 in the village. Balloons were released in Sollie’s honor and a banner was unveiled that will hang in the village every May. The village has declared May 23 Sandra Sollie Day. It is Ingraham’s hope that the banner will keep Sollie’s memory alive until the day comes when she is found.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Ingraham at (585) 465-8769.
