Police seek missing woman


CLARKSBURG —State police are searching for a local woman who has not been seen since Thursday.

The disappearance doesn't seem typical behavior for Joanne Ringer, 39, according to a media advisory from Berkshire District Attorney David Capeless' office.

"It is believed she left Clarksburg in her dark green 2001 VW Jetta sedan possibly traveling to Easthampton," reads the advisory.

State Police officer Jason Gallup told The Eagle that Ringer's disappearance was out of character for the Clarksburg woman. That triggered the search, he said.

"It's unlike her," Gallup said. "So we're looking to do a well-being check on her."

Gallup said there is no information indicating any paramount danger to Ringer or others.

The Jetta Ringer was driving has Connecticut license plates reading 5AA EX2.

Ringer is 5'7" tall and weighs 130 pounds, according to Capeless' office. She has brown eyes and her hair is brown with purple streaks. Capeless' office added that Ringer may be wearing contact lenses that may change the color of her eyes.

Ringer has facial and torso piercings. She has a number of tattoos, including a full sleeve on her right arm with a "female image spanning from elbow to wrist."

Anyone with any information on Ringer's whereabouts is asked to call the Massachusetts State Police's Cheshire barracks at (413)-743-4700 or the State Police Detective Unit assigned to the Berkshire District Attorney's Office at (413) 499-1112.
