Joan and her husband, Peter
, were last seen in Los Angeles, California on March 17, 1982. They have never been heard from again.
Harvey Rader was named as a possible suspect in their cases. Rader was tried several times on counts related to the 1982 California disappearances of Michelle Houchman
, her brother Mitchel Salomon
, and their parents, Sol Salomon
and Elaine Salomon
. He was acquitted at the conclusion of his most recent trial in 1992.
