No Sign of Missing Woman on Surveillance Tapes, Police Say

February 01, 2003|From a Times Staff Writer

Surveillance videotapes from a market in Longview, Wash., where a clerk reported that she might have encountered the missing Laci Peterson of Modesto, do not show any images of Peterson, police said Friday.

Peterson, 27, who is due to deliver a son this month, has been the subject of an intense search and widespread media attention since her disappearance on Christmas Eve.

That attention focused on Longview this week after a market clerk reported that, sometime around Christmas, a pregnant customer had said she was being kidnapped.

The clerk said she forgot to tell police about the incident until news reports made her think the customer might have been Peterson.

Longview police said they looked at the store's surveillance tapes covering periods during which the clerk worked since Christmas Eve and concluded that Peterson doesn't appear on any of them.
