Circumstances of Disappearance
Jane Kelsey of 139 North Geddes Street, was last seen in the Western Lights Plaza, where she had been shopping with her family.
Kelsey's former boyfriend approached her at the shopping center and proposed marriage in the jewelry department at Kmart.
After Kelsey declined, the pair left together on the ex-boyfriend's bicycle.
The ex-boyfriend told police that he dropped Kelsey off at Fayette and North Geddes Streets at 17.30.
When Kelsey didn't return home the next day, her family filed a missing person report.

Initially, police were reluctant to label Kelsey's disappearance suspicious because she was in the midst of an emotional crisis when she was reported missing. But as time passed, investigators began to suspect foul play because Kelsey had no history of running away and has not tried to contact her family.
Kelsey's ex-boyfriend, whom she dated for eight years, was the last person to see her.
