(WFSB) - The family of a New Canaan mother who disappeared ahead of Memorial Day weekend in 2019 marked four years since she’s been gone.

Jennifer Farber Dulos went missing on May 24, 2019. The mother of five was last seen dropping off her children at school.

Investigators continue trying to piece together what happened leading up to her disappearance.

Jennifer and her estranged husband Fotis Dulos were going through a lengthy divorce and custody battle.

Fotis was eventually charged with murder, kidnapping, hindering prosecution and tampering with evidence.

In 2020 he tried to commit suicide inside his Farmington home and died two days later, before the case could head to trial.

The search for the New Canaan mother has spanned multiple towns and years later there are still so many unanswered questions.

“Yes it’s frustrating, yes it’s difficult. But you keep forging ahead, hopeful that something will break. Something will provide the next link to solving this case,” said Lt. J. Paul Vance, WFSB Law Enforcement Analyst.

“The family needs answers to questions to exactly what happened and that’s always at the forefront of any investigators mind in a case like this,” Vance said.

So where does the case stand now?

In a statement Channel 3 is told:

Carrie Luft issued a statement on behalf of the family and friends of Farber Dulos.

Fotis’ former girlfriend, Michelle Troconis and his former attorney Kent Mawhinney were charged with conspiracy to commit murder.

As they await trial, Troconis no longer has to wear a GPS monitoring device. She continues to maintain her innocence.

“I’m very grateful to God obviously, my family, my friend, all my support from this community, especially John because he’s been fighting day by day,” Troconis said.

Meanwhile, each October a walk to end domestic violence is held in honor of Jennifer Farber Dulos.

“We cannot end domestic violence, we cannot end the violence against women if we don’t raise awareness,” said Mary-Jane Foster, President and CEO of Interval House.

In 2021, Connecticut passed Jennifer’s Law. It expanded the definition of domestic violence to include coercive control.

Supporters of the law said it’s already making a difference.

“It’s a terrible tragedy. But unfortunately, it’s not uncommon,” Foster said.

Friends and family of Jennifer Farber Dulos are encouraging the public to support the Black and Missing foundation. A link to the foundation’s website can be found here.
