Missing since January 25, 1977 from Lexington/Fayette, Fayette County, Kentucky.
Classification: Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Flynn was last seen on January 25, 1977 about 17.00 in Lexington/Fayette Ky when she left her office, as a secretary, at the Kentucky High School Athletic Association on Cooper Drive. She never arrived at home that night.
She was seen talking to someone in a blue van near the intersection of Cooper and South Limestone Street. Another witness had seen Flynn later that night in Nellie Kelly's, then a Lexington restaurant. She was talking to a man with a pockmarked face and brown hair parted in the middle.
Her abandoned car was discovered 11 days later in northern Lexington. The 24-year-old secretary was the subject of a highly publicized search after she disappeared.
Melanie's family believes that she knew too much about the Lexington Police drug trafficking upon the arrest of a former Lexington Police Officer on cocaine trafficking charges. At the time of her disappearance there was a scandal involving the Lexington Police narcotics squad.
