Details of Disappearance
Lovell was last seen in Stinson Beach, California sometime in June 1974. She was hitchhiking along the California coast with a friend, Stephen Packard
. They planned to eventually go to Seattle, Washington to visit the World's Fair, then return home to Missoula, Montana.
Packard called his family from Stinson Beach, California on June 10, 1974. On June 20, one of his traveler's checks was cashed at a store in Westport, California, about four hours north of Stinson Beach. This is the last sign of them; neither Packard nor Lovell have been seen or heard from again.
Santa Maria, California police are investigating Lovell and Packard's disappearances. Their cases remain unsolved.
