Details of Disappearance

Geurin was last seen in Sodus Point, New York on January 28, 1991. She lived with her boyfriend, Curtis Michael Pucci, in the Rondeen Trailer Park on Margaretta Road. has never been heard from again. All her possessions, including her trailer, were left behind and were later sold. She was employed as a cook at a restaurant in 1991.

Geurin was involved in an abusive relationship with Pucci at the time she went missing. The month before her disappearance, Geurin told her family she planned to leave him and move back in with her children, who lived 200 miles away. She was very upset during this conversation and said she was embarrassed and had made a mistake by becoming involved with Pucci. This is the last time she ever spoke to her loved ones.

A photo of Pucci is posted with this case summary. He is currently incarcerated on unrelated charges, serving a fifteen-year sentence for assaulting his roommate with a hammer. Geurin's daughter believes he murdered her mother. He has never been charged in connection with her case, however.

Geurin's life in early 1991 was deeply troubled. Her husband had died suddenly in 1988. She had begun drinking heavily and left four of her children in the care of her oldest child, who was then in her teens. She always maintained contact with her children, however.

Authorities initially believed she left of her own accord to avoid legal trouble, as she'd been charged with forging checks and driving while intoxicated. She missed court dates after her disappearance and a warrant was issued for her arrest, and Pucci told investigators she'd gone to Florida to escape the charges.

Geurin's daughter reported her as a missing person in 2006, after she found out the paper trail for her mother stopped in 1991. Pucci is considered a person of interest in Geurin's case. He has refused to cooperate with the investigation. Her case remains unsolved.
