Circumstances of Disappearance

Helen Ann Morgan was last seen on Mother's Day, May 13, 1984, by her mother. She allegedly received a telephone call around 7:00 p.m., which lasted four to six minutes. The call may have been related to her work in the computer center at the National Cash Register Company in Fayetteville, Georgia. Another call came in at approximately 10:00 p.m., again appearing work-related. Upon hanging up, Morgan told her mother that she had to go to work to straighten out a computer problem. She changed her clothes and left the house. Her mother did not recall what Morgan was wearing. Along the way, Morgan stopped at a grocery store. That was the last time anyone reported seeing her. A missing persons report was filed the next day.

Morgan's car was recovered as an abandoned vehicle in the south terminal parking lot of the Atlanta Hartsfield International Airport on May 16, 1984, two days after she was reported missing. The ignition key was under the floor mat. There were no signs of violence. The car had been wiped clean of all fingerprints.

Morgan had no plans to travel and was reportedly a very conscientious person who would have informed loved ones of any plans to leave the state. She was also not upset at the time and had no reason to leave town without explanation.

Morgan occasionally visited a bar called Frady's in Peachtree City with her friends but was not the type person to be picked up by anyone at a bar.

Morgan was divorced from her husband in February/March 1984. They had a daughter together. Morgan told her mother she felt as if she was being followed during the divorce proceedings.

Since Morgan's disappearance, no activity has been noted on any of her financial accounts.
