Details of Disappearance

Easland was last seen on June 28, 1980. She had been staying for the past two weeks with her boyfriend at the Budget Motel on Spenard Road in Anchorage, Alaska, and was supposed to meet an unidentified male on 4th Avenue downtown that day. She has never been heard from again.

Investigators believe the serial killer Robert Hansen may have been involved in Easland's case, as well as in the disappearances of Megan Emerick, Mary Thill and Andrea Altiery. In 1984, he confessed to 17 murders and 30 rapes over the previous twelve years, and acknowledged Easland was one of his victims. He lead authorities to the grave sites, but only twelve bodies were recovered.

A map in Hansen's home had marks on it matching the locations of his victims' bodies, but there were more than 17 marks on it, suggesting he had more victims then he admitted to. Most of the women he is known to have killed were prostitutes or exotic dancers. He died in 2014, while serving 461 years to life in prison for his crimes. A photo of him is posted with this case summary.

Foul play is suspected in Easland's case due to the circumstances involved.
