    Details of Disappearance

    Gilbert was last seen during the evening hours of July 1, 1995 at the Girdwood Forest Fair in Girdwood, Alaska. She was on a date when, at 6:00 p.m., her date discovered he had left his car lights on and the vehicle would not start. He became separated from Gilbert while he looked for help. Gilbert's date, who had met her just the week before, searched for her until 1:00 a.m. the following day before reporting her disappearance to police. She has never been heard from again. Her date is not considered a suspect in her disappearance.

    Gilbert's loved ones described her as a responsible person and stated it is uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning or to go off into the woods by herself. She was employed as a nanny in Anchorage, Alaska at the time of her disappearance, enjoyed playing basketball, and was an aspiring novelist. She lived with her sister and planned to enroll in cosmetology school. Gilbert had resided in Alaska for only a year prior to her disappearance; before that she lived in San Francisco, California and Everett, Washington. Her family believes she met with foul play and is deceased.
