Details of Disappearance

Drnovsek was last seen leaving her residence in the 10600 block of west Virginia Avenue, near south Kipling Street, in Lakewood, Colorado on September 5, 1984. She was driving her live-in boyfriend's vehicle at the time. She has never been heard from again. On September 22, her boyfriend's vehicle was found stripped and abandoned at Colorado Boulevard and Mexico Avenue in Denver, Colorado.

Drnovsek's boyfriend didn't report her missing until September 24, nineteen days after her disappearance and two days after her vehicle was located. It's uncharacteristic of her to be out of touch without warning and foul play is suspected in her disappearance, which remains unsolved.
