Task Force to Investigate Disappearance of Three Girls



VERNON, Conn. (WTNH)– Prosecutors have established a team to try and figure out what happened to three girls who disappeared decades ago.

Prosecutors and police announced a Tolland County Cold Case Task Force will take the lead in the investigation.

The state is offering $150,000 in rewards for the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for the disappearance of Lisa White, Debra Spickler and Janice Pockett, who vanished between 1968 and 1974. White and Spickler were 13-years-old when they were last seen, Pockett was just 7.

Authorities also will take up the case of skeletal remains of a woman in her 40s or 50s found last year, but police say they have no reason to believe they are linked to the other three cases.
