Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Guadalupe Dailey was last seen on August 31, 1997 in San Diego. She was reported missing after she failed to meet a male friend for a trip to Las Vegas over the Labor Day weekend.

Her white pickup truck was found at La Petite Academy, the day-care center on Carlton Hills Boulevard where she worked as director.
She left behind two small children.

Guadalupe's husband, James Edward Dailey, was found guilty of murdering his wife in 2001. He was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.
Dailey told detectives he and his wife argued over money the day she disappeared and she left his apartment late in the afternoon. Later that night, he said, he wanted to "de-stress" and drove to Mission Bay with his small boat. Eight hours later, he said, he returned home. He had repeatedly threatened violence against his wife because she was divorcing him.
