Missing since August 6, 1972 from Cedar Rapids, Linn County, Iowa
Classification: Endangered Missing
Circumstances of Disappearance
Lynn Schuller was last seen on August 6, 1972. Keith Schuller claimed his wife was sleeping when he last saw her. Her husband and their 3-year-old son left their home around 07:30 a.m. on Saturday, August 6, 1972, while Lynn was still sleeping. When they returned about five hours later, Lynn and her bicycle were gone. The husband then took the boy swimming at Bever Park, after leaving a note for Lynn. About an hour later, they returned home.
Lynn Schuller's bicycle was there but she was missing. The house was undisturbed. All of her belongings, including her purse, were still there. The only items missing were the clothes she was wearing.
Sometime that day, the husband called Lynn's parents and others to say she was missing. A few searches of the area turned up nothing.
The next afternoon, about 24 hours after the husband said he first realized something was wrong, he called the Sheriff's Department to report Lynn as missing. A more extensive search was conducted with the help of dozens of volunteers. Detectives obtained a search warrant and seized several items from the house.
On March 20, 1978, Lynn Schuller was declared legally dead. She has never been located. Foul play is suspected.
