Charlotte Marcella Moriarty
Missing since June 21, 1977 from Haaula, Honolulu County, Hawaii
Classification: Endangered Missing
Circumstances of Disappearance
Charlotte Moriarty and her son Marx both disappeared on June 21, 1977, leaving behind only a baby's stroller at a Haaula bus stop. Moriarty took her son out for a walk at about 9.00, and the stroller was found at 13.00 at a bus stop at 54-295 Kamehameha Highway. Marx's father filed a missing persons report on July 10, 1977, more than two weeks after he found the stroller.
In the report, he explained to police that Moriarty had been missing on several prior occasions, but she had returned home, and that he thought this incident was another one of Moriarty's leaving for no reason.
Ms. Moriarty's family believes she would never leave without contacting family and did not disappear on her own accord, as her young daughter was due to visit her the summer she went missing. The family believes that Ms. Moriarty and Marx, met with foul play.
Neither Marx nor his mother has been seen or heard from again. ***Update - In 2012 Charlotte's son was located and positively identified by DNA***
