15 Years


We face a sobering anniversary this week. It will be fifteen years on February 23 since Shannon LaBau was last seen. Here at the website and the Facebook page we are asking you to do TWO things: 1) Print the flyer as found under MISSING POSTER. Please post it somewhere in your hometown. Print and post many of these if you can. This keeps Shannon’s case in the minds of people and the media which could lead to a TIP.  And 2) please wear a bracelet in honor of Shannon. Bracelets say: Missing: Shannon LaBau and our website address. They are tri-colored black, red, and yellow. They are available in youth and adult sizes. How do you get a bracelet? Please contact Lana at LD Eichstadt, PO Box 138, Wessington, SD 57381. Bracelets are $1.00 plus postage. Include a check or money order for your bracelet(s). Postage will vary—please just guesstimate the postage. We are not making any profit on these—they strictly sell for cost only. Our email is findshannonlabau@gmail.com for questions. When you have your bracelet—post a picture of your bracelet and your location in support and remembrance of Shannon and his family.  By wearing a bracelet, you will keep the case alive in the hearts and minds of people and that essential tip could come in. Help us find Shannon LaBau!

Help us find Shannon LaBau!
Shannon Clair LaBau was last seen February 23, 1999. He told his mother he was going with a friend to Townsend, MT to possibly buy a car and would return home to Helena, MT later that same day. LaBau’s friend dropped him off in the vicinity of 900 block of Kessler in Helena at 9 am. He has never been seen or heard from again. Shannon had an appointment with his optometrist to renew his contact lenses. The appointment was set for after his disappearance and he did not arrive as scheduled. He also left money in his bank account and uncollected paychecks from his employer. At the time of his disappearance Shannon had a young child and family and friends know he would have never left like this on his own. It would be out of character for him. His case remains unsolved. We are looking for any answers. If you know anything that would help bring closure to his friends and family, please help us.
