Details of Disappearance
Laxer returned to her residence in North Hollywood, California after a doctor's appointment sometime during August 1997. She has never been seen again. She may be a patient in a hospital or nursing home.
Laxer was reportedly a patient of the same doctor who treated Robert Black
, who disappeared in 1996, and Goldie Swanger and Richard Davison
, both of whom vanished in 1997. Swanger was found in 2004, but the others are still missing. All four missing persons disappeared either en route or upon returning from appointments with the same physician. It is not known if the cases are otherwise connected in any way.
