Nearly six weeks after Anesha “Duffy” Murnane went missing in Homer, efforts by family, friends, law enforcement and community members to locate her continue. Murnane left her supportive housing apartment at 12:13 p.m. on October 17, as evidenced by video taken at the apartment complex. She is believed to have been heading for a medical appointment just a few blocks away and has not been seen since.

On Sunday, November 10th, approximately 50 community members joined local efforts to “Bring Duffy Home”, a campaign to locate Anesha “Duffy” Murnane, a 38-year old Homer woman who has been missing for several weeks. On October 17, Duffy left her apartment in downtown Homer, walking to a doctor’s appointment just a few blocks away. She never made it. Police dogs followed her scent to an area downtown where the trail ended abruptly, leading local law enforcement to believe that a vehicle picked her up.
