Missing since February 28, 1977 from Kansas City, Missouri
Circumstances of Disappearance
Loy Evitts vanished during her lunch hour February 28, 1977. She drove her car from its customary spot in the garage, had a watch adjusted, then drove to a drugstore, where she had coffee and bought an umbrella. The car was back in its space later that afternoon, but Evitts was never seen again.
She was a legal secretary at a law firm. Her purse was found 10 days later, under a bridge in southeast KC near Unity Village.
Evitts, a former KSU queen nominee, was happily married in Overland Park and had no romantic or financial entanglement. The couple had no children. Evitts' husband moved to have her declared legally dead seven years later.
