MONTGOMERY, Vt. — Sunday marks the 13-year anniversary of the disappearance of Brianna Maitland.
The 17-year-old was last seen at her place of employment at the Black Lantern Inn, located in Montgomery, on March 19, 2004, at approximately 11:20 p.m. Her car was discovered the next day adjacent to an abandoned farmhouse, located on Route 118, a short distance from work.
