A woman whose children were taken by her ex-husband two years ago is in the Midwest hoping someone can help her find their bodies. A manhunt began after Manuel Gehring took his 11-year-old son and 14-year-old daughter from their New Hampshire home two years ago. After he was caught he told officers he’d killed the kids and buried their bodies…somewhere along 700 miles of Interstate-80.He talks about grass in the tire ruts, a place where “it had been a long since anybody had been there,” and there was grass growing.Gehring in an FBI interrogation made public, rambles and can’t tell which state he may have been in when he buried his children. He wasn’t caught till he’d reached California, and a year and a half ago he committed suicide in jail, awaiting trial. Gehring says “some of it all happened sporadically.” Gehring told questioners only that he thought he’d pulled off the Interstate and buried the children somewhere in the Midwest, and there are credit-card records linking him to a stop in Coralville, Iowa. His ex-wife, Teri Knight, has come from New Hampshire hoping someone will be stirred to remember when they hear of the incident, and offer a clue that’ll help her find the remains of her children.
