Details of Disappearance

Mayberry was last seen at a diner in Fort Worth, Texas during the early morning hours of March 6, 1997. She called one of her friends and requested a ride home. Mayberry's friend reported that she was crying during the conversation. Mayberry has never been heard from again. She was driving a gray 1989 Hyundai Accent with the Texas license plate number GFF06N. Her vehicle has not been located.

Mayberry's family members told authorities that she was in good spirits and enjoyed her job at the time of her disappearance. She was involved with minor law infractions in 1997, but her relatives said she was working to clear her record.

Mayberry resided in a mobile home in Saginaw, Texas. Her four dogs were discovered unattended and her television set was turned on shortly after she disappeared. Her family members said that it is uncharacteristic for Mayberry to leave her pets unsupervised. Her case remains unsolved.
