Fifteen years after 21-year-old Maura Murray disappeared following a car crash in rural New Hampshire, her father believes newly gathered information will lead to her remains.

The University of Massachusetts-Amherst nursing student lied to professors about a death in the family and left campus on Feb. 9, 2004, driving into New Hampshire. She was last seen on a road in Haverhill that leads to the White Mountain National Forest. She had crashed her car, which was later found.

The Maura Murray missing person case has not been "reopened," as an Oxygen Network show called "The Disappearance of Maura Murray" reported earlier this week, because according to New Hampshire officials, the case was never closed.

It's been nearly 13 years since Maura Murray packed her car, lied to professors about a death in the family and left Massachusetts. The 21-year-old nursing student crashed her car on a rural road in northern New Hampshire before she disappeared.

Since then, some North Country residents have been keeping up the search for her. They are holding a remembrance and informational event in Littleton on Feb. 11.
