Colleen was last seen at her family's home in Clearfield, Iowa during the evening hours of October 5, 1975. Authorities believe that she disappeared sometime during the overnight hours. Colleen has never been heard from again.

A possible lead in her case developed when a photograph of a woman resembling Colleen was found in the possession of the serial killer William Bradford, but Colleen's father stated the woman in the picture was not his daughter. Both her parents are now deceased. Her case remains unsolved.
