    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Connie was last seen picking daisies, as she walked along U.S. Route 44 in Salisbury. She was seen looking for a ride. She was never seen again.
    Earlier on that day, Connie had walked down the driveway that wends 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, with just a week of camp remaining, Connie left the icepack in her tent and walked on past the stone pillars that mark the camp entrance. She turned right on Indian Mountain Road and paused to pick some daisies, a camp caretaker later told police. Others also saw her on the road.
    Connie 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.
