I am a retired NH Trooper that was involved in one of the extensive searches for Maura. I don't recall all of the details but I remember the day after a huge search was conducted in the summer of 2004, hearingMr. Murray being interviewed by the news media. Prior to our commencing the search we were briefed, and informed Maura's family had met with the Commanders the previous day and were thoroughly informed ofour planned search. We were told Mr. Murray had offered information hethought useful. The media learned of the search and covered it as it progressed. The day after the search I heard on Boston radio Mr. Murraywas furious he had not been notified a search was being conducted. I was so shocked in hearing his comments on the radio the following morning that I called one of the Commanders at home and reported what I heard, partially out of frustration that approximately 100 Troopers and Conservation Officers had searched aggressively in rugged terrain, for approximately eight hours in ninety degree heat, to try to find out whathappened to his daughter. To remember that day, in such detail, almost ten years later demonstrates it's significance. From that time on I always wondered why a Father would lie about anything concerning the disappearance of his daughter... Read into that as much as you want, but my skin crawled when I watched the segment tonight...
