Video Footage Of MÖTLEY CRÜE's Meeting With Missing Fan's Family Posted Online

Video footage of family and friends of a missing Maryland woman meeting MÖTLEY CRÜE's Tommy Lee and Nikki Sixx backstage before the band's August 14 concert at the Nissan Pavilion in Bristow, Va. to personally thank them for offering $10,000 toward Tracey Tetso's reward fund has been posted online at the "America's Most Wanted" web site (free registration required).

"They were really sincere; it was cool to come meet them and thank them for their help," Monika Barilla, a longtime friend of Tetso's who has helped to organize search parties for the missing woman, told the North East Booster.

"They said it was not about publicity for them and it was never an issue about money for them," said Laura Smith, another friend of Tetso's who attended the concert. "When they found out she was missing and how much of a fan she was, their main goal was to try to get her as much attention as possible."

Tetso, 33, has been missing since March 6, when she was supposed to attend a MÖTLEY CRÜE concert in Washington and never showed up.

Tracey Gardner-Tetso (photo#1, photo#2) is described as white, 5 feet 4, 130 pounds, with long blond hair and blue eyes. She was last seen driving a 1996 black Pontiac Trans Am, with tinted windows and Maryland tags LRN 534, according to The Baltimore Sun.

Baltimore County police said last month that they have not identified any suspects. The case is being treated as a missing person's file with possible foul play, according to police spokesman Bill Toohey.

MÖTLEY CRÜE in April announced that they would match the $10,000 reward fund being offered for information on the whereabouts of Gardner-Tetso, who was reported missing by her husband. The reward is being offered by the Victims' Rights Foundation of Gaithersburg, Metro Crime Stoppers and Aggregate Industries, which employed Gardner-Tetso as a dispatcher. Anyone with information should call Baltimore County police at 410-307-2020.

Fox's "America's Most Wanted: America Fights Back", which ran the original report on Tracey's disappearance on May 14, aired an update as part of their August 20, 2005 episode.
