Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
On the night of January 30, 1988, the single mother, left her daughter with a babysitter and went to the pub Ozzie's Eatery

At about 01:20 a.m. on January 31, the bar owner saw Brunet talking to a man on the sidewalk outside the bar. She was last seen hitchhiking north on Holland toward Tunney's Pasture, with the man walking beside her.
The next day, an employee found her heart-shaped pendant, with a broken clasp, in a parking lot behind the bar.

Evidence uncovered after she disappeared suggests she had no plans to run off. Family and friends said she lived for her daughter and would never leave her. She also left $600 in a bank account.

Days after she disappeared, $788 in cash was found in her linen closet. The day before she vanished, Brunet signed a new lease on her apartment.
