Details of Disappearance

Daneault was last seen leaving a private social club in downtown Manchester, New Hampshire at 1:30 a.m. on June 8, 1980. She left the club, saying she was going to a party, and has never been heard from again. Few details are available in her case. Daneault was divorced, with two young sons, at the time of her disappearance, and lived with a roommate in the 300 block of Hayward Street Street in Manchester. It's uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning.

Laureen Rahn, a 14-year-old girl who lived on Merrimack Street just two blocks from Daneault, disappeared six weeks before Daneault did and was never found. She and Daneault reportedly closely resembled each other in spite of the difference in their ages, but it has never been shown that their disappearances were linked. Both cases remain unsolved.
