Bonnie L. Schultz
Missing since July 3, 1997 from Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana
Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Schultz was last seen leaving a pub in the area of 62nd and Allisonville Road on the Northeast side of Indianapolis, Indiana on July 3, 1997.
She was driving a blue 1990 Mercury Sable, four door station wagon with Indiana '98 plate 99G9645. This vehicle has never been located.

Schultz was married and a mother of two children. In July of 1997, the Schultz family lived in the 4400 block of Clayburn Drive on the northwest side of Indianapolis. The night she disappeared, Bonnie had a conversation with her husband about marriage problems. After 26 years of marriage, Bonnie wanted a divorce. After their conversation at home, Bonnie left for a nighttime birthday party with coworkers from her part-time inventory job.
Bonnie was last seen at the Time Out Lounge near 62nd and Allisonville in the early morning hours of July 4, 1997. Bonnie was seen with a woman and a man, who both gave statements and were cooperative. Both said she was upset when she arrived, but that she settled down throughout the evening.

Witnesses told police Bonnie left alone in her car. When her husband woke up the next morning and found her gone, he called the police. Police monitored Bonnie's bank accounts and cell phone activity but found nothing.
Her family finds it unlikely that she left on her own, or committed suicide. Foul play is suspected.
