BETHLEHEM — The family of Meghan Marohn, the Delmar woman who has been missing since March 26, has set up a website offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to her safe return.

Marohn, 42, an English teacher at Shaker High School, drove to Massachusetts on March 26 and was last seen in Stockbridge and Lee, Massachusetts on Sunday, March 27, according to the family’s website.

Bethlehem Police Commander James Rexford told The Enterprise earlier that she was a hiker and her car was parked at Longcope Park Hiking Trails in Massachusetts.

The family’s site, which includes pictures of Marohn and news stories about her disappearance, says she was driving a Black 2017 Subaru Impreza and describes her as being 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighing 120 pounds. She has red hair and green eyes.

An extensive police search including helicopters, drones, K9 and ground units was conducted at Longcope Park and nearby for four days from March 29 to April 1 with no evidence discovered, the site says.

Volunteer search teams coordinated by Peter Naple, Meghan’s brother, continued the search on Saturday, April 2, and Sunday, April 3, the site says, with police resuming the search Monday, April 4.

“We are actively seeking anyone who might have a dash camera or home or business camera facing the street in Lee, MA or Stockbridge, MA that may have recorded Meghan or her car on Sunday March 27, 2022,” the site says, adding, “If you are not comfortable calling the police, Meghan’s family is operating a 24 Hour Tip Hotline at (413) 327-6255. Please call us with any information you have.”

The family could not be reached for comment.

The family’s site, responding to posted inquiries, said, “We will have volunteer search teams go in if the police stop their search. If you want to join the volunteer search efforts, please send us an email to with your name and contact information (email and/or cell phone number) and we will contact you when we are coordinating the next search.”

On March 31, North Colonie Superintendent D. Joseph Corr posted a notice on the district’s website, saying, “Ms. Marohn is a valued member of the North Colonie School community. This is a difficult and traumatic event, and our thoughts are with her family and friends.

“We know that this information may have a profound impact on students and staff. Counseling and support services are available for all members of the school community.”
