Circumstances of Disappearance
Hohenshilt left her part-time job at Fisherman's Wharf Restaurant in Ponce Inlet and returned to her apartment in Daytona Beach, where she later spoke to someone by phone.

When she failed to report to work the following morning, her Tanglewood apartment was checked and evidence of a violent struggle were found inside. A lamp was knocked over, sheets and pillows were missing, blood was found on her bedspread and two teeth were located next to her bed. Investigators found only her cats.

Her car, a 1981 Chevrolet Chevette, was found abandoned and unlocked near Ellsworth and Bethune streets, near Bethune-Cookman College in Daytona Beach, less than a mile from her apartment. Neighbors said it had been there since Sunday, the day after Hohenshilt was last seen.

One of her employer's reported her missing. Hohenshilt’s mother died when she was 3 months old and her father died about a year before she disappeared. Hohenshilt also worked as a sales agent at a real estate office in Ormond Beach.
