BARNSTEAD — The search for Ashley Turcotte, a Barnstead resident who has been missing since Thursday, Jan. 4, intensified as local law enforcement agencies released new surveillance photos and appealed to the public for any information.

Turcotte was last recorded by surveillance cameras at the Dollar General in Barnstead, making purchases at 9:18 a.m. and again at 10:44 a.m. on the day of her disappearance.

Although the store lacked external surveillance cameras, her vehicle, a silver Hyundai Elantra, was discovered the next day, Friday, Jan. 5, at approximately 6:30 p.m. in the Barnstead Town Hall parking lot.

Local authorities, including the Barnstead Police, NH State Police, and NH Fish & Game, have been collaborating on an extensive search involving both land and waterways.

Despite the efforts of multiple law enforcement and civilian agencies, all known private video surveillance systems in the vicinity where her car was found have yielded no clues.

Police are urging anyone who may have seen Turcotte or her car during the relevant time period to come forward, emphasizing that no piece of information is too small.

A photograph of her car was released to assist the public in identifying the vehicle.

The Barnstead Police Department has encouraged the community to share any details by calling (603) 269-8100, with the assurance that even the smallest piece of information may be critical in locating Turcotte.
