March 1 marks nine months since Jacque Waller went missing from the Jackson area.
Her estranged husband, Clay Waller, remains the only person of interest in her disappearance.
After meeting at an attorney’s office to finalize details surrounding their divorce, the 39-year-old Farmington High School graduate met Clay Waller at his home, allegedly to pick up their son, who was 5 at the time. Jacque has not been seen since.
Her blue Honda SUV was later found abandoned near the Fruitland exit with a flat tire.
Since her disappearance, her now 6-year-old triplets have been in the custody of Jacque’s sister, Cheryl Brennecke.
Clay Waller subsequently pleaded guilty to threatening to kill Brennecke via the Internet on a website called Topix, making it a federal crime. He is serving five years in a Louisiana penitentiary.
In the meantime, almost every weekend, volunteers and law enforcement continue searching Cape Girardeau County for evidence leading to Jacque’s location. Both law enforcement and Jacque’s family remain optimistic that charges will be brought against the person or persons responsible for her disappearance.
The Jackson Police Department continues to receive tips from the public. Anyone with information regarding the case should call 573-243-3151.
