SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Police in Sioux Falls are seeking the public’s help to solve a decades-old missing-person case.

Sunday marked 42 years since Ella Beth Lordermier was last seen in Sioux Falls. On Monday, detective Pat Mertes said police want to give Lordermier’s family closure.

Lordermier’s belongings have turned up over the years. Her credit cards were found in a bathroom in Canada in 1974, and about 20 years later, her wallet and checkbook were found along the river banks of the Big Sioux River.

Mertes says Lordermier’s disappearance is suspicious. He says Lordermier’s estranged husband was the only person of interest that came out of the investigation. He wasn’t charged and died in 2013.

Mertes says no tip from the public is too small and encourages anyone with information to contact police.
