Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Gary, the mother of a 12 year old daughter, was last seen on December 27, 1988 at her apartment on 8383 Airline Highway, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
The 32-year-old waitress hasn't been seen since Christmas Day 1988, when she visited with family and friends.

The manager at her apartment complex found two packed suitcases and family photos spread out on the bed in Gary's apartment but no sign of Gary.

The lights were on, the coffee pot was gurgling, the bathtub was full of water and Gary's driver's license and keys were in her bedroom. Her makeup bag, her music, her cigarettes were there. Her car was in the parking lot. The rest of her clothes were hanging in the closet. An autographed photograph of Louisiana Gov. Edwin Edwards, was torn up on the counter.
A few weeks later when the manager checked the apartment again, the lights were off but the suitcases still lay packed on the bed with the photographs nearby.
Police found no signs of forced entry, struggle or foul play.
