    Details of Disappearance

    Connie was last seen at her Napa, California home on June 9, 1978. She was supposed to go to a party that evening, but she never arrived and has never been heard from again. At the time of her disappearance, she was living with her father and dating an older man. She sometimes sneaked out of the house at night to meet the man, and she ran away from home at least six times in the months prior to going missing, but she left all her belongings behind after her June 1978 disappearance and her family doesn't believe she left of her own accord. Her case remains unsolved.
