Case of missing mom now a murder investigation

More than a year after her disappearance, Pennsylvania State Police confirmed that their search for a missing mother had turned into a murder investigation.

Police said Anna Bronislawa Maciejewska was reported missing by her husband, Allen Gould, on April 10, 2017. WCAU reported that the Poland native was the mother to a 3-year-old son and a successful actuary for Voya Financial at the time of her disappearance.

“We are out there looking for her body,” Corporal Robert Kirby said. “We haven’t ruled out any suspects.”

Gould reportedly told police that he last saw Maciejewska, 44, leaving their Charlestown Township home and that she didn’t turn up for work that day. However, friends said the last time they spoke with Maciejewska was March 28—after that, they claimed to have only spoken to her through text messages, according to The Mercury News.

WCAU reported that one of those texts reportedly entailed a happy birthday text to her father that included unintelligible Polish and mistakes that she wouldn’t have made.

Following her disappearance, coworker Sharon Rouse said she visited Maciejewska’s house and claimed to have found her phone on the table.

“She would not have left her phone,” Rouse told the station.

State police also said they’re looking into the two weeks prior to Maciejewska’s April 10th reported disappearance. Reports indicated that she had taken time off from work and was scheduled to return the day she was last seen alive.

Further, state police said they recovered her blue Audi A4 in Charlestown Meadows, two miles from her home, on May 8, 2017. Afterward, Embreeville Barracks used dogs to search the nearby woods and neighborhood for the missing mother.

With limited clues, police said they’re interested in speaking more with her husband.

“We last spoke to [him] two months ago,” Kirby said. “Allen would not provide any useful information.”

Maciejewska is 5-feet, 4-inches tall, weighs about 160 pounds, and has hazel eyes and blonde hair.

This is an ongoing investigation. Pennsylvania State Police is urging anyone with information surrounding Anna Bronislawa Maciejewska’s disappearance and presumed death to contact the Embreeville Barracks at 610-486-6280.
