Connie Christine Smith was last seen picking daisies as she walked along U.S. Route 44 in Salisbury near the intersection of U.S. Route 44 and Belgo Road. She appeared to be looking for a ride.
Earlier that day, Connie had walked down the driveway that winds through Camp Sloane, the Salisbury summer camp where she was staying. She was going to the camp dispensary to return an icepack she had borrowed the previous evening after she fell out of the tent and hurt her hip. Instead, leaving the icepack in her tent, she set off for the nearby village of Lakeville. When she hadn't returned almost three hours later, camp officials called state police.
Despite massive search efforts she has never been found.
