Ingrid Bauer
Missing since August 16, 1972 from Kleinburg, Ontario, Canada.
Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Shortly after 21:30 on August 16, Bauer walked out the front door of her home in Kleinberg to catch a ride to her boyfriend, 4.7 miles away in Pinegrove. She had never hitchhiked at night before.

Bauer's house is on Pennon Road, an east-west street that runs west from Islington Avenue about four miles north of Highway 7 and on the south edge of the village of Kleinberg. Ingrid was last seen at about 21:45 walking south on the west side of Islington Avenue. And then she disappeared.
She never arrived at her destination and has never been seen again.

Various residents of Kleinburg reported hearing the cries of what appeared to be a young person in the area of Islington Avenue and Sevilla Drive at approximately 22:00 that evening, and reported seeing an unknown make or color pick up truck in the area of where the cries were heard.
Within an hour, her family knew she had not arrived and a search was launched. No trace of her was ever found.

Her family now believes their daughter is dead. They suspect a man later found guilty of raping an eight-year-old girl and attacking an 18-year-old woman was also responsible for Ingrid's disappearance.
