    Details of Disappearance

    Burton was last seen in Boynton Beach, Florida on February 9, 1988. Her stepmother saw her before she went to work. At 10:00 a.m., her stepmother called home and spoke to Burton. When she arrived home later, Burton was gone. She didn't leave a note, which is uncharacteristic of her, and none of her belongings were missing. She has never been heard from again. Her stepmother reported her missing the next day.

    At the time of her disappearance, Burton attended Santaluces High School and lived with her father and stepmother in a house on northwest 27th Court; they still live there. Few details are available in her case.
