Circumstances of Disappearance

Cathy was a junior at Deering High School when she disappeared on September 24, 1971. She planned to go to a dance that evening at the YWCA and asked her father if he'd drop her downtown so she could buy a new pair of pantyhose and a tube of toothpaste. She got out at Cumberland Avenue.

Cathy finished her errands and stopped by a downtown music store and told a girlfriend she was heading home to get ready for the dance and would see her at the dance that evening. Then she started out on foot down Forest Avenue for the 1.5-mile walk home. That was the last time she was seen.

When she disappeared, she had in her possession a new pair of pantyhose for the dance that evening, two tubes of toothpaste, her house key, and a small Mexican handbag that didn't even contain enough money for the city bus fare.
