Patrice Endres Has Been Located 12-6-05

As I type this blog tonight, I'm at a complete loss for words. At about 3 a.m., I was jolted out of bed with the news that Patrice Endres was found late yesterday behind a church less than eight miles from where she vanished on April 15, 2004. The news did not begin coming across the airwaves until approximately 5:00 a.m. but the chill was already in the air at my house. We knew it was Patrice before it was confirmed later today.

Some people working on a fellowship hall at a church in Dawsonville, Georgia saw buzzards flying in the sky and went to see what the commotion was about. They found a deer carcass and close by, they found what was human remains. They called 911 immediately. This is when the disappearance mystery of Patrice began to draw to a close after 600 long days.

In late March of 2005, Forsyth County police revealed that a man named Jeremy Brian Jones had confessed to abducting, raping, murdering and then disposing of Patrice in a nearby river. The searches for Patrice turned up nothing. As the one year anniversary of her disappearance drew closer, we planned and carried out a special night for Patrice at a location overlooking the river. We went out there and threw purple roses into the river and watched them float away. Hearts broken, there was nothing more we could do for Patrice. We were told she'd probably never be found. I had come to believe this was how it was going to be, until I was proven wrong today.

Patrice was found on a road that has yet another church on the same street called "Sweet Water Creek" church. The same "Sweet Water Creek" Jeremy Jones spoke of disposing of Patrice. I now wonder was his confession true but sketchy because of his drug abuse? Authorities in Forsyth County say that because Patrice was not found where Jones claims he put her, does not mean he is cleared. They still believe he is the one who took Patrice that fateful day.What makes this mystery so interesting is the fact that Patrice was found five days after an Alabama judge sentenced Jeremy Jones to die for murdering another woman. The day Patrice was found was also on her husband's 60th birthday. My mother and I searched several church yards in the first months after Patrice's disappearance because my mother had a dream that Patrice was in a field with tall trees and she heard church hymns playing. We did not go too far to the next county where Patrice was ultimately found because being in the South, there is a church on every block. I have to wonder if he had kept searching because of mom's dream, would we have found Patrice? We dismissed it all as crazy dreams, because we all have them from time to time.

Patrice's body may be kept at the GBI crime lab for a while until they determine the cause of death and all the important factors to find out exactly who did this to her. In my heart, I know that Patrice is no longer out in the elements, waiting to be found. May Patrice rest peacefully tonight. She's been found. God was ready to reveal her whereabouts. Somehow, she knows how hard we looked for her. I never gave up in the far side of my mind that one day Patrice would be found.
