    Details of Disappearance

    Manchester was last seen at home at Villa Belmont Apartments in Newark, Delaware on June 29, 1980. She has never been heard from again. There were no indications of a struggle at her apartment. The door was unlocked and Manchester's purse, money, checkbook and cigarettes were left behind; it appeared as if she'd simply left and intended to return within a short time. She was a student at the University of Delaware at the time of her disappearance, and went missing just one week before she was supposed to finish her coursework for a master's degree in business administration. Few details are available in her case. Foul play is suspected.
