    Details of Disappearance

    Barr was last seen at the bus station in Oroville, California on July 26, 1986. She went with a male acquaintance to pick up money at a Western Union office. Her companion said she got into a Datsun 280z with her boyfriend, John Woolen, a methamphetamine cook and enforcer for the Hells Angels motorcycle gang. She has never been heard from again. Barr left her two daughters behind, and she never picked up her last welfare check. Her mother reported her missing on August 1.

    Authorities have ruled Wooten out as a suspect in the disappearance of another girlfriend, Rhonda Yocom, but he's still a possible suspect in Barr's disappearance. Little information is available in Barr's case, but foul play is suspected.
