Monday marks 25 years since the disappearance of Marchelle “Shelly” Hansen.

Hansen, who was 23-years-old at the time, was last seen leaving her job at Marquip Inc. in Phillips approximately 8:00 p.m. on November 12, 1987 . She was reported missing five days later when she failed to arrive for work at her part-time job at the IGA grocery store in Phillips.

Hansen's vehicle was found parked at the Lake 10 Resort, approximately 11 miles south of Phillips.

No signs of foul play were observed in the vehicle or at Hansen's residence, located north of Phillips on Highway 13.

Investigators say she was pregnant at the time of her disappearance.

Law enforcement is seeking information identifying anyone Hansen may have been dating or associating with at the time of her disappearance. Information regarding places Hansen may have frequented would also be of assistance.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Special Agent John E. Christophersen of the Division of Criminal Investigation at 715-839-3830 or Investigator Chris Jarosinski of the Price County Sheriff's Department at 715-339-3011.
