Cops search Totowa water plant for missing mother of three
(02/09/05) TOTOWA ? Police in Totowa spent Wednesday scouring the grounds of a water treatment plant in an effort to locate a missing woman.
The person in question is Geetha Angara, a chemist who works at the Passaic Valley Water Treatment Plant. Authorities say Angara?s car and personal belongings were found at the facility, but the 42-year-old mother of three has not been seen since Tuesday.
Investigators have shut down the plant and drained the water tanks as part of the search procedure. Authorities say they have found a sneaker in one of those tanks, but family members of the missing woman say the type of shoe found does not match they style Angara usually wears to work.
Angara?s co-workers are shaken and upset over the chemist?s sudden disappearance. Although the plant is closed during the search, backup facilities are being used to make sure service is not interrupted for more than 800,000 customers.
