Details of Disappearance

Gray disappeared from Bowling Green, Virginia on March 5, 1991. At the time of her disappearance, she worked as a shift manager of a Pizza Hut in Bowling Green and as a cook at the Iron Skillet restaurant at a local truck stop. She lived with her brother and two of her children.

Her brother stated when she returned home from work that day, he saw her pack a bag. She left with someone in a black Camaro, saying she would be back, and never returned. Her brother stated he knows who she left with, but the identity of that person has not been publicly disclosed.

According to her family, Gray was known to be alive in February 1992, almost a year after her initial disappearance. Gray's brother doesn't believe she would have chosen to simply walk away and disappear forever, however; he stated she was devoted to her family and her children. Her case remains unsolved.
