Daughter of missing Hanson woman searching for answers 2 years after disappearance

HANSON, Mass. — Laina McMahon has not seen her mother, Sandra Crispo, in two full years.

Sandra disappeared from her home in Hanson on August 7, 2019, and for Laina, nothing has ever been the same.

“Every day, it’s like, is this going to be the day that we get a phone call that they find her, they arrested somebody? It’s unfathomable living like this every single day,” Laina told me.

Surveillances of Sandra Crispo recorded on the afternoon of Aug. 7, at a Cumberland Farms near her home, are the last recorded images of Sandra Crispo.

When the recordings were made, Sandra was on her way home.

That afternoon, Sandra’s son-in-law, Laina’s husband, helped Sandra drop her car off at a mechanic and gave her a ride.

They stopped at the Cumberland Farms so Sandra could pick up a pack of cigarettes.

The next day, Sandra did not answer Laina’s calls.

Friday morning, Aug. 9, when Laina stopped by to drop off her children for a visit, Sandra was gone.

“I peeked through the windows. All the lights were on, the AC was on. I went to the back door expecting it to be locked. It was unlocked. I found her dog, cowered in a recliner, he appeared timid,” Laina recalls.

Weeks of searching turned up nothing.

Only Boston 25 News was on scene when Massachusetts State Police arrived at Sandra’s house and collected evidence.

Police tell me Sandra’s case is open with detectives assigned to it.

But Sandra Crispo remains missing.

Daughter Laina McMahon is not giving up her search for answers.

“I’m hopeful we’ll get answers I’ve accepted the most probable outcome is that she is not alive. But there is nothing we can do about it, unfortunately. We just got to keep moving and hoping that justice will be served,” Laina told me.

Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz said in a statement:

“Massachusetts State Police assigned to the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office have been actively working in conjunction with Hanson Police to locate Sandra Crispo.

The extensive efforts of investigators include but are not limited to: canvassing 16 area streets, reviewing video surveillance available from the area, performing more than 200 door-knock interviews, inquiring with the MBTA and rideshare services operating in the vicinity of Hanson, utilizing canines, the State Police Airwing, and underwater drones for searches of woods and swamp, and following up on any leads received.

The investigation remains active and ongoing. Anyone with any information is urged to contact Hanson Police, or State Police Detectives at 508-894-2600.”
