Circumstances of Disappearance

Connie Gail Minchaca was last seen in the late afternoon after a family friend drove her to a western clothing store where she was supposed to meet a friend.

She planned to attend a party the night she disappeared. Friends claim she never arrived to the pary. She left her personal belongings behind at the home she shared with her father.

Her mother received several mysterious calls in the weeks after Connie disappeared. Sometimes the caller would be a male, sometimes a female. Each time they claimed to know what had happened to Connie, sometimes claiming she had been kidnapped and other times claiming she had been killed.

Connie was dating a 25-year-old man whom her family did not approve. She would often sneak out of her bedroom window to meet him. Each time her room was discovered empty, the family would call the police and officers would pick Connie up. The police have at least six reports of her running way in the months prior to her disappearance.
