Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Lass was last seen in South Lake Tahoe, she left her residence without her vehicle or personal belongings. Lass worked as a nurse at the Sahara Hotel-Casino. Her last entry in the nurse's log book was at 01:50, and although her car was found parked at her apartment complex in nearby State-line, she wasn't seen after leaving the Sahara.

The next day, an unknown male called her landlord and employer, stating Lass would not be returning due to a family emergency. The call was a hoax, and there has been no trace of Lass ever since.

Donna Lass may be a victim of the Zodiac serial killer, though her body has never been found.
A Zodiac letter gave clues to her body, but it has never been found. A few artifacts belonging to Lass were found in what appeared to be a shallow grave, but no body surfaced.
