NEW CANAAN -- The New Canaan Police Department announced Thursday it has received 70 responses to its request for residents with home surveillance video systems to save their video from the week Jennifer Dulos disappeared and contact police.
Police also announced Thursday they have received 225 tips for their investigation that spans from Hartford to New Canaan, where Jennifer was reported missing on Friday, May 24. She was last seen that day dropping her five children off at New Canaan Country School.
The school released a statement Thursday:
"As a school that believes deeply in the sanctity of childhood and as a tight-knit community of people who believe in our common humanity, we are heartbroken about Jennifer Dulos’s disappearance. We know Jennifer as a devoted mother, a dedicated member of our parent community and an active volunteer. Over the last two years, she had a daily presence on campus, and her kindness and warmth have been palpable to everyone who has come into contact with her. We continue to support the five beautiful Dulos children, who are beloved members of the New Canaan Country School community, along with all of our NCCS community during this unbearably difficult time. We thank the news media for helping us to protect the privacy of our students and focus on their school activities during this time when routine and normalcy is so vital."

Jennifer’s estranged husband, Fotis Dulos, sits behind bars, charged with tampering with evidence in connection with her disappearance. Police have obtained and served search warrants on properties he owned.
Earlier this week, FBI agents joined investigators at Waveny Park, where Jennifer’s car was found abandoned the day she went missing, to search for evidence. A police cruiser still sits parted at her house on Welles Lane where, according to court documents, police found blood stains and blood spatter.
More than 1,000 New Canaan residents have signed a petition requesting that the town install cameras at Waveny Park, in response to Jennifer’s disappearance, and other incidents that have happened at the park over the years.
