Friday marks the fifth year since the disappearance of Jennifer Dulos.
The New Canaan mother was last seen dropping her children off at school on May 24, 2019.
Prosecutors believe her estranged husband Fotis Dulos ambushed her in her garage as she returned home and killed her.
Fotis Dulos died by suicide shortly after he was charged with murder in the case.
Family spokesperson Carrie Luft released the following statement Thursday morning:

As of May 24, Jennifer Farber Dulos has been gone for five years. We miss her every day, in every way. There are so many daily reminders of Jennifer—a shared reference, a musical riff, a delighted laugh, a graceful silhouette in the distance. Her strength of character, her intelligence, and her tenacity live on in her children. She would be so very, very proud of the young adults they have become.

For us, five years is not a milestone but a marker of cumulative loss and longing. Life goes on, yet grief goes on alongside it, a shadow, a current, the presence of absence.

We hold fast in our belief that Jennifer’s body will be found. The investigation is active, and we are ever grateful to the Connecticut State Police and the state’s attorney’s office for their continuing work on this case.

In Jennifer’s memory, we encourage you to hug your loved ones; take time to listen to a child; play your favorite song; or send a note to brighten someone’s day.

We also urge those who can do so to donate to local organizations that support survivors of intimate partner violence, such as Interval House Hartford; and to organizations that work on behalf of missing and murdered women of color, such as the Black and Missing Foundation, National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center, and many others.

Thank you very much for respecting the privacy of Jennifer’s family and loved ones.
