Katherine O'Neil Anderson
Missing since April 20, 1979 from Annapolis, Anne Arundel County, Maryland.
Classification: Involuntary

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Anderson was employed at Deze's Restaurant on the Eastern Shore, in Chester, Maryland in 1979.
On April 20, 1979, Anderson traveled to Annapolis, Maryland to have repair work done on her vehicle. Anderson picked up her vehicle from the Tate Dodge Dealer.
The normally reliable student had telephoned her boyfriend from the automobile dealership where she picked up her van and was supposed to drive straight to the restaurant where she worked as a waitress. She had to be at work at 16.00, but she apparently never went back across the Bay Bridge.
When Anderson didn't show up for work and didn't call, her family knew something was wrong.
A search of the area by persons hired by her boyfriend located the vehicle on the parking lot East Park Shopping Center in Glen Burnie, MD. From the mileage logged at Tate Dodge while it was being serviced, police were able to tell the van had been driven 45 miles before it was found in the parking lot.
Anderson, a University of Maryland student, whose parents live outside Boston, Massachusetts, was never seen again despite an air and ground search. She and her boyfriend, with whom she lived in Chester were to leave that night for a family reunion in Pennsylvania. Anderson is from Marblehead, Mass., but had been living in Maryland since December.
Police believe the woman had no credit cards and $20 cash with her at the time of her disappearance.
Authorities believe that Anderson may have been taken against her will.
