Sarasota County investigators are asking for your help in the search for a missing 69-year-old woman. 

Annelise Schweickardt may have been gone since April, but investigators are only now listing her as missing. They've searched her north Sarasota County home, and believe she may be a victim of foul play. 

Schweickardt is a German citizen who traveled frequently to her homeland and to Canada. Those who knew her initially thought she was on another trip. 

 In April investigators say her tenant, John Mellquist, 44, told them she was out of the country. They now say have no evidence she ever left. 

Mellquist is behind bars, charged with an unrelated domestic battery. 

If you have any information about Annelise Schweickardt you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at (941) 366-TIPS.
