  • Circumstances of Disappearance

    Emanuela Orlandi disappeared on June 22, 1983 after 19:00 p.m. At the time of her disappearance Emanuela was 15 years old, went to a scientific high school and, in the afternoons, the Ludovico Da Victoria music school in Piazza Sant'Apollinare. The afternoon of June 22, Emanuela arrived at her flute lesson late. Later, at 19.00, she explained her lateness in a phone call to her sister, during which she said she had had a job offer from a representative of the Avon cosmetics company to promote the cosmetics on a fashion show. Her sister suggested that she talk it over with her parents before making any decisions. Emanuela allegedly met with the would-be representative shortly before her music lesson. At the end of the lesson, Emanuela spoke of the matter also with her girlfriend who then left Emanuela at the bus stop, in the company of an unknown girl who has never been identified.

    Someone supposedly saw her get into a large, dark-colored car. From that moment Emanuela vanished. Her family immediately published notices in the newspapers. Anonymous callers to Italian media said they had kidnapped Emanuela and would free her if Italy released Mehmet Ali Agca, who is serving a life sentence for shooting the Pope John Paul II on May 13, 1981. No links were however established by the police. Emanuela has never been found.
