Details of Disappearance

Cynthia was last seen in Osage, Oklahoma on June 23, 1976. She was last seen at Osage Laundromat. Her aunt and uncle owned the laundromat and Cynthia worked there. She has never been heard from again. After her disappearance, Cynthia's purse and drink were found at the laundromat, as well as a half-finished donut. Witnesses said she left the laundromat at 9:30 a.m. and got into a faded beige 1965 Plymouth Belvedere with two people. One witness said the two people were a man and a woman, and another witness said they were two women in their twenties.

After her disappearance, there were several reported sightings of Cynthia. She was supposedly traveling around southern Kansas with a religious group. Authorities were never able to confirm the sightings, however. Cynthia was a high school junior at the time of her disappearance, was popular, made good grades and had just made the varsity cheerleading team. She is missing under suspicious circumstances and may have been taken against her will.
