Missing since April 25, 1972 from Cotati, Sonoma County, California
Classification: Endangered Missing
Circumstances of Disappearance
Jeannette was last seen at 09.30 by her roommate when she left her residence on the 950 Block of Sierra Avenue in Cotati. She usually hitchhiked to her classes at Santa Rosa Community College from the Cotati On-ramp off Highway 101.
She may have been picked up by a 20-30 year old white male with afro style hair driving a faded brown early 1950s model Chevrolet Pickup truck.
Between 1972 and 1973 Santa Rosa, California experienced the killings of seven young women whose murders have never been solved. Jeannette is considered a probable victim and her body has never been located.
All of the victims were known to hitchhike, a popular mode of transportation during that time. These murders became known as the Santa Rosa Hitchhiker Murders.
