TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Those who knew Alice "Anita" Oswald are reacting to the latest developments in the case. They're hopeful someone will come forward with the information to find her.

News 10's Heather Good spoke with Oswald's daughter Kara. She declined to go on camera and speak specifically about the case due to the ongoing investigation but did say she "feels in her gut" her mother is gone.

 

 

Others are still holding on to hope.

Chadd Weaver says he has lived next door to Oswald for more than a year.

An animal lover, Weaver says Oswald would often visit his dogs and feed the treats.

"She always drove out of her house with her car and up our alley and fed our dogs the doggy treats."

Now even the dogs notice Oswald is missing.

"They keep watching for her everyday. It's like a piece of their heart has been broken."

Weaver, Oswald's friends and co-workers at Harmony Haven Sanctuary and even her daughter say they find the timeline in this case puzzling.

Carol Dunham worked with Oswald at the animal shelter and says even now she is in disbelief but is forced to move on.

Kara Oswald says her mother would want her to be strong so that's what she is trying to do. She says she has looked for her mother herself to no avail.

Chadd Weaver, Neighbor says, "Everybody has been talking all around town about her disappearance. I go to the gas station, people are talking about it. I can go to Kroger and Dollar General and people are talking about it."

Police ask that you keep a lookout for Oswald's burgundy Honda CRV.

If you have any information you are asked to please contact the authorities.
