New Canaanites who know the local woman missing since last Friday describe her as a friendly and intelligent person who is fiercely dedicated to her children.
Jennifer Dulos, 50, was reported missing at about 7:30 p.m. on May 24, according to police. She last was seen driving a black SUV in New Canaan, police said.
A Brown University graduate with five children at New Canaan Country School, Dulos is an “amazing mother” and “lovely person,” according to Hannelore Kaplan, who came to know the family as a Realtor.
“She would do anything for anyone,” Kaplan said. “She is just a very generous, kind person.”
Kaplan added that Dulos is a yoga enthusiast and is “extremely bright, exceptionally bright.”
“Everyone who met her just thought she exuded kindness,” Kaplan said.
New Canaan’s Arnold Karp said that Dulos has been renting a house that his company owns for about one year and that she is a “very kid-centric” person.
“Just a very nice, refined woman,” Karp said. “She is certainly into her children.”
He added: “She’s one of the sweetest, nicest women I know.”
Connecticut State Police are conducting a joint investigation with the New Canaan Police Department into Dulos’s disappearance.
Anyone who had contact with Dulos on Friday or has information about her disappearance is asked to call the New Canaan Police tip line at 203-594-3544.
