Circumstances of Disappearance
Robbins was last seen leaving her family's Kennewick, Washington home on June 18, 1985. She reportedly told her family that she was headed to Seattle to visit friends.

Robbins joined Molly A. Purdin, a 21-year-old woman from Pasco, Washington, sometime after Robbins left her family's home. Robbins and Purdin were last seen in King County, Washington.

Purdins was discovered murdered off of Index-Galena Road on July 12, 1985. She had been killed by blunt force trauma to the head. There was no sign of Robbins.

Due to the circumstances surrounding her companion's death, foul play is suspected in Robbins' disappearance.
