Details of Disappearance

Frame was last seen in Zanesville, Ohio on January 30, 1985. She left home at 5:00 p.m. after getting a message saying she needed to see her divorce attorney immediately. She told her children she would go to the meeting, buy groceries, visit her mother in the hospital and then talk to her landlord before coming home to cook dinner.

Frame never returned, and it turned out she did not really have an appointment at her attorney's office. She has never been heard from again

The day after her disappearance, her car was found abandoned on Linden Avenue across the street from United Technologies, the company where she worked. Prior to her disappearance, she had gone five years at work without a single absence.

Frame's loved ones don't believe she would have left without warning. Her mother was dying of cancer at the time of her disappearance. Foul play is suspected in her case, which remains unsolved.
