SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — May 1 marks the 15th anniversary of Lutricia Steele’s disappearance. The Schenectady Police Department is now renewing its requests for information to help solve her missing persons case.

In the early afternoon of May 1, 2008, police said 27-year-old Steele left her Webster Street home in the Mont Pleasant neighborhood of Schenectady. She then cashed a check downtown near the intersection of Erie Boulevard and State Street.

Around 6 p.m. that day, a receipt from the retailer AJ Wright showed that she may have gone to their location in Hannaford Plaza on Altamont Avenue. Steele never returned home and has not been heard from since, said police.
