Sarah Anne Wood
Birth: Mar. 4, 1981
New York, USA
Death: Aug. 18, 1993
Litchfield
Tioga County
New York, USA

Sara was last seen riding her bicycle at 2:30 p.m. after leaving the Norwich Corners Church on Roberts Road in Frankfort, NY. Sarah's bicycle, coloring book and crayons were discovered hidden in an area of brush off of Hacadam Road later in the evening. Sarah has never been seen again.

Lewis S. Lent Jr. was charged with Wood's abduction and murder in 1996, three years after she was last seen. Lent confessed to the abduction and murder of another child in Massachusetts in the early 1990's. Lent initially confessed to Sarah's abduction and claimed he buried her body in the Adirondacks. He drew a map of the burial location for authorities, but extensive searches did not produce any evidence as to Sarah's whereabouts. Lent later recanted his statements, but was convicted of the crime nonetheless.

Sarah's family founded The Sara Anne Wood Rescue Center, later renamed The Mohawk Valley Branch Of The National Center For Missing and Exploited Children. Foul play is suspected in Sarah's case due to the circumstances involved in her disappearance.
