Details of Disappearance

Bos arrived at Duggan's Pub on 11th Street and K Street in Lincoln, Nebraska shortly after 11:00 p.m. on October 16, 2000. She is a musician and often participated in Open Mic Nights at the pub. Witnesses at Duggan's Pub said that Bos was in good spirits during the evening. She departed the club at approximately 1:00 a.m. on October 17, telling friends she planned to pick up her boyfriend at his residence and then proceed home to be with her three children for the rest of the night.

Witnesses said that Bos had her guitar and music with her when she left the pub, but it is unclear if she was carrying her purse. Bos never arrived at her boyfriend's home as planned and has not been heard from again.

Bos's boyfriend called her children at approximately 6:30 a.m. Her pager was located inside her residence at that time. Her boyfriend then summoned authorities and her loved ones hired a private investigator to attempt to locate Bos. Her Saturn was discovered parked across the street from Duggan's Pub later in the day. There was no sign of Bos at the scene, but her guitar was found inside the vehicle and the trunk was opened slightly.

Bos's loved ones said it was extremely uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning. Authorities have stated that Bos's disappearance is suspicious.

Bos's sister, musician Jannel Rap, initiated a series of concerts in Bos's honor shortly after her 2000 disappearance called GINA (Greater Investigation Now Available) For Missing Persons.
