Details of Disappearance

Quair's boyfriend told authorities that she departed her residence in the 600 block of Roosevelt Street in Salinas, California at approximately 8:30 p.m. on November 3, 1986.

Quair left her young child with her boyfriend and was headed to purchase milk at a nearby store at the time of her disappearance. She never returned home and has not been heard from again.

Ron Rader claims his brother, Bill Enos, killed several people, Quair among them, and buried their bodies in a backyard in Tulare County, California. Enos is now deceased and was never charged with any murders, and the police don't believe Rader's theory and haven't acted on it.

Quair's disappearance remains unsolved.
