Selinda Jean Winegar
Missing since March 21, 1979 from Burlington, Chittenden County, Vermont
Classification: Endangered Missing
Circumstances of Disappearance
Winegar was last seen at her home in Burlington, Vermont on March 21, 1979.
Cindy had fallen in with a rough crowd prior to her disappearance.
The Winegars -- and Cindy especially -- had begun to get menacing, anonymous phone calls, and the family had gotten a new, unlisted phone number. After Cindy's disappearance the family got a final Cindy-related phone call from a man who did not identify himself. "If you want your daughter, she's tied up dead at the bottom of the Winooski River," he said, and he hung up. No evidence was found to indicate if foul play was involved or if she left voluntarily.
