`no meaningful leads'

A vigil will be held tomorrow evening in Glen Burnie for Tracey Gardner-Tetso, a Rosedale resident who has been missing since March.

The 33-year-old woman was last heard from on the afternoon of March 6, when she was en route to a Motley Crue concert at the MCI Center in Washington. She was to have met a friend at the concert but never showed up.

Gardner-Tetso was reported missing two days later. When notified by e-mail of Gardner-Tetso's disappearance, the members of Motley Crue decided to match a $10,000 reward being offered by the Victims' Rights Foundation of Gaithersburg, Metro Crime Stoppers and Aggregate Industries, where Gardner-Tetso worked as a dispatcher.

"We hope involvement helps bring more attention to this case and that anyone with information steps forward," said Nikki Sixx, the band's bass player.

On the night of her disappearance, Gardner-Tetso was supposed to meet her boyfriend, Aggregate Industries employee Christian Sinnott, at the concert. Sinnott told police he had purchased the concert tickets for her birthday.

Gardner-Tetso is married but estranged from her husband, Dennis Tetso, said Bill Toohey, a spokesman for the Baltimore County Police Department. No divorce papers had been filed.

Sinnott and Tetso have said they were aware of each other's relationship with the missing woman, and both expressed concern for her well-being, police said.

"The investigation continues," said Toohey. "We have no meaningful leads or solid evidence at this time."

Gardner-Tetso's car was discovered in the parking lot of a Glen Burnie Days Inn on March 17, although Toohey said the discovery did not yield much new information.

The vigil, which will start about 8 p.m. tomorrow, will be held at the Glen Burnie Days Inn parking lot. The motel is located across from the Motor Vehicle Administration facility in the 6600 block of Ritchie Highway.

Motley Crue will return to Washington on Aug. 13 and will hold two front-row tickets for Gardner-Tetso, said lead singer Vince Neil.

"We hope she picks them up," he said.
