Details of Disappearance

Tanya was last seen in Center, Texas on June 7, 1983. She was visiting her paternal grandparents at their home half a mile down a dirt road off Highway 7 when she disappeared from their backyard at dusk, shortly after 8:00 p.m. About twenty minutes passed before anyone realized she was missing. She has never been heard from again.

Investigators could find no evidence that Tanya wandered away from her grandparents' home; they believe she was abducted. Her case remains unsolved.
