Details of Disappearance

Engstrom was last seen at 8:43 p.m. on February 20, 1994, outside the Idle Spur Bar in the 1300 block Cleveland Street in Clearwater, Florida. Authorities stopped her while she was walking in the middle of the street at the time; she was carrying an open container of alcohol. She has never been heard from again.

Engstrom stayed in touch with her family by telephone several times a month, but they have not heard from her since her disappearance. Her mother, who last saw her in January 1994, reported her as a missing person in December 1995, almost two years after she went missing.

Prior to her disappearance, Engstrom had been arrested multiple times for prostitution, theft and drug charges, but her criminal record abruptly stopped after early 1994. She was a known prostitute in the Clearwater area, and lived near north Fort Harrison Avenue. She had also been arrested for prostitution in Pennsylvania and Massachusetts.

Several other local prostitutes were murdered around the same time Engstrom disappeared. Investigators believe the women, including Engstrom, may have been victims of a serial killer, but no suspects have been named.

Engstrom has connections to West Springfield, Massachusetts; McKeesport, Pennsylvania; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She is the mother of identical twin sons, and in 1993 she gave birth to a daughter whom she placed for adoption. Her disappearance remains unsolved.
