Search continues for Cassandra Gross, local mother missing for nearly 2 years

UNITY TOWNSHIP, Pa. — The search for Cassandra Gross continues nearly two years after she last seen be her friends and family.

Stanko is in jail on charges unrelated to her disappearance.

Cassandra Gross has legally been declared dead as a homicide victim and the case remains open.
