Circumstances of Disappearance

Lori Jean Lloyd, 14, was babysitting her nephew on February 11, 1976 when she decided to walk to a 7-Eleven at 3613 Wilmington Pike to purchase cigarettes, just a little more than a half mile from the family home at 3303 Annabelle Drive in Kettering. She left the baby with her friend. Lori never arrived at the store and has not been seen since. She did not take any personal belongings with her, and the small amount of money in her bank account remained untouched. When her mother, Anita Smith, returned home after midnight, she found Loriís friend and the baby asleep. Lori wasnít there. Employees at the 7-Eleven store told police they never saw her that night. No one else has reported seeing her since.

Because Lori had a history of running away, including some arrests, police initially did not take the case seriously. But she never really ran away, according to her family, just stayed at friends houses. There was initially some reason to believe she might have left voluntarily. Loriís friends reported at the time that she wanted to go to California and live with her father. Lori was the youngest of five siblings.
