MISSING STUDENT

Gold's parents haven't given up search

By JOHN SINEVICS
It has been nearly three months since
Adela Gold last heard from her
daughter. The Ann Arbor Police Depar-
tment has all but given up its in-
vestigation of Beverly Gold's disap-
pearance and the posters which once
dotted the kiosks around campus
asking for any clues indicating her
whereabouts have been torn down or
covered up. But her parents- have not
given up hope.
"We're always hopeful," said Adela.,

Gold, "but we don't know what to do
anymore. We've been working with the
Pinkerton detective agency for over a
month now, and they haven't been able
to come up with anything yet."
BEVERLY GOLD, 21, a junior in the
University's literary college, left her
apartment at 935 South Division on
June 16 and has been missing since. She
was wearing only light clothing and left
all personal belongings behind.bThe
former East Quad resident is about 5-
foot-4, has brown hair and hazel eyes,

and was wearing a blue t-shirt the day
she disappeared. Whether Gold was
abducted or simply left of her own free
will is a matter of speculation.
Detective Charles Ferguson, the of-
ficer in charge of the investigation, was
reluctant to engage in such speculation.
"The only time I have a hunch is if I
have any evidence to back it up," said
Ferguson. "And we don't have any
evidence at all."
Ferguson said the case is baffling for
two reasons. First, there is no reason to
suspect any foul play, and second, it
would not have been characteristic of
her behavior to leave on her own. "The
trail for us begins and ends in her living
room," said Ferguson.
ADELA GOLD agreed that there was
no reason for her daughter to leave so
suddenly. "I don't think this was plan-
ned on her part, because she took
nothing with her from the apartment,"
Beverly's mother stated. "She never
had any undue pressure from us, and
she was always free to do anything she
wanted."
Her former roommate, Judith Sch-

wartz, said Gold was not depressed, but
that there could have been personal
reasons for her sudden departure. "You
can say that I personally dont think she
was abducted," said Schwartz, "but
that's only my opinion." Schwartz said
that Gold was a fairly independent per-
son and could "handle herself very well
alone."
Schwartz, also expressed misgivings
on the way the media have handled the
Gold story. "The media have tried to
sensationalize her disappearance by
distorting some things I've said," she
stated, "and I don't like that."
ADELA GOLD, however, said that
she wants to keep the public aware of
her daughter's disappearance in any
way possible. "We hope that she won't
be forgotten," she said, "and maybe
writing about it and publicizing it will
do some good."
The Gold family has been actively in-
volved in an attempt to find persons
who might have clues to the case. Adela
Gold spent many days this summer put-
ting up flyers around the city which
asked for help from anyone who might

have seen her daughter. The family
was also responsible for sending
photographs of Beverly to law enfor-
cement agencies around the state and
in the Toledo area since a claim was
made earlier' in the summer that
Beverly had been spotted there.
Detective Ferguson said that family
and media involvement has not been a
hindrance, though no helpful evidence

God
has resulted from the publicity. "It's
just changed the way we normally han-
dle tips and phone calls," said
Ferguson. "We got a lot of wierd ones."
Beverly Gold's disappearance has
been a traumatic experience for the en-
tire family. "We've taken it pretty
badly," said Adela Gold. "We just can't
seem to talk to each other any more; we
just cry.'~
The Ann Arbor Police Department
still considers the Gold case "oen
but is no longer actively investigating it
because of the lack of evidence. The
Gold family, however, is still hopeful
that something will turn up. "We've got
to keep the investigation going," said
Adela Gold, "because I'm sure she's
alive."
