MIDDLEBURGH -- New York State Police on Tuesday highlighted the case of a missing mother last seen in Schoharie County in 1986 who may have been the victim of foul play.

Erica Jayne Franolich, then 26, is believed to have been last seen at about 9 p.m. Oct. 13, 1986, in the area of Main Street and Railroad Avenue in Middleburgh, state police said as part of their "Cold Case Tuesday" effort.

She wasn't reported missing until the next February -- Feb. 25, 1987 -- to authorities in Michigan by her family living there, after they could not get in touch with Franolich, state police said.

At the time of her disappearance, Franolich was a mother of two and living with her husband and their young son in Schoharie County, state police said.

Franolich has brown hair and brown eyes. She has a mole on her left knee and a small indentation on her forehead, slightly left of center. She is 5 feet, 3 inches tall, with a small build, state police said in a release Tuesday.

"It is believed that she may be the victim of foul play," state police wrote.

"Members of the New York State Police in Troop G continue concentrated efforts to solve this missing person case and request the public's assistance," troopers wrote.

Anyone with information on Franolich's disappearance is asked to contact state police in Princetown at 518-630-1700.
