A Chester County community came together Friday night to raise money for the family of a 43-year-old woman who vanished in the spring.
Anna Maciejewska went missing the morning of April 10 and hasn’t been seen since. Her husband, Allen Gould, said she was in a “panic” and never arrived at her job at Voya Financial in West Chester, Pennsylvania.
NBC News published a report on her disappearance that included interviews with family members who claimed she abruptly canceled a scheduled trip to her native Poland.

“It’s heartbreaking to think the annual trip they all took together between Christmas and New Year won’t happen this year,” neighbor Ashley May, the organizer of Friday’s fundraiser, said. “I will go to any event for her.”
The trip is an annual tradition for Maciejewska-Gould who planned on bringing her 4-year-old son with her to visit her father on his 80th birthday, according to her nephew. The family members also said Maciejewska-Gould called out of work the week of April 3, which was unusual for her.
In July, Maciejewska-Gould’s family from Poland came to the Malvern area to get the latest on the search and to meet with Pennsylvania State Police and talk to her husband.
Officials said her husband was the last person to see Maciejewska-Gould alive. She was driving her 2011 Navy Blue Audi A4 with the Pennsylvania license plate HTF 2919 at the time of her disappearance.
