Details of Disappearance Alicia's mother had custody of her in 1987 and they resided in Windber, Pennsylvania. Alicia was visiting her father at his home in the 100 block of Dunn Avenue in Blairsville, Pennsylvania on April 26, 1987. She and her father had an argument that evening.
Her father told authorities that Alicia walked out of his residence abruptly and never looked back towards the house. He called after her and told her to return home by 8:00 p.m. He believed she was going to a friend's house. Alicia has never been heard from again. She was carrying a pair of purple sunglasses at the time of her disappearance. Her father reported her missing the next day.
Alicia's case is classified with many law enforcement agencies as that of an endangered runaway, but some investigators believe she may have not intended to leave voluntarily for an extended period of time and could have become a victim of foul play.
Her mother stated she wasn't streetwise in 1987 and could not have survived on her own. Authorities do not have any suspects in her case; neither have they ruled anyone out. Alicia's mother believes her daughter was deliberately murdered and she thinks she knows who the killer is, but the individual has not been named as a suspect or charged in Alicia's case.
She was a freshman at Windber High School at the time of her disappearance; she was a good student and a member of the school's track team. There has been no activity on her bank account or Social Security number since 1987. Her case remains unsolved.
