McCloud, Calif. —

New information that wasn’t known to investigators when 15 year old Hannah Zaccaglini went missing from McCloud in 1997 are beginning to come to the surface, according to a press release from the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office.

Hannah was last seen on June 4, 1997. This year marks the 15th anniversary of her disappearance.

Investigators have been interviewing subjects identified in the original case involving Hannah’s disappearance and have spent a considerable amount of time pursuing additional investigative leads, according to the release.  Some of the people being interviewed are providing information that was not known to investigators at the time of the disappearance, the release states.

Hannah has a chipped left front tooth, a chicken pox scar near her right eyebrow and a birthmark behind her right ear. She has brown hair, brown eyes, was 5 feet, 5 inches tall and weighed 120 pounds at the time of her disappearance.

“With this new information, investigators are moving forward and feel confident that the person or persons responsible for Hannah’s disappearance will be brought to justice,” according to the release.

“This case is a major priority for the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office and we will not rest until we solve Hannah’s case,” said Sheriff Jon Lopey. “We are making progress on the ongoing investigation but we firmly believe there are citizens out there who have information, either first or second hand, which could help us to resolve the questions and circumstances involved in Hannah’s disappearance.”

Anyone with information about Hannah Zaccaglini’s case is urged to contact the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office at (530) 841-2900 or contact Detective Jeff Moser at (530) 842-8764.
