    Circumstances of Disappearance

    21 year old Lillian Rochelle Holmes went missing in Pasadena California on 3/22/1984. Lillian was last seen (by a family member) when she left her Pasadena home early in the morning on her way to start a new temp job at a nearby shopping mall which was located in Arcadia, CA. Lillian did not drive so she intended to take the bus to the job. A witness claimed to have seen Lillian boarding a bus at the bus stop nearest to her home. Lillian was never seen or heard from again. It is believed that Lillian never made it to the new job at the mall but it is unknown where exactly she vanished along her journey between her home and the mall.
