    Details of Disappearance

    Carter was last seen in Ventura, California on October 15, 2002. At the time, she stated she planned to travel to Alaska. She rented a car, filled it with luggage and strapped a canoe to the roof. Before she left, Carter gave almost all of her belongings to her son.

    Carter's rental car was found parked in Eureka, California after her disappearance. The canoe was missing and a suicide note was found in the vehicle, but Carter's remains were never found and she has never been heard from again.

    At the time she went missing, Carter had been known to associate with Juan F. Vasquez. It is unclear what, if anything, this man had to do with her disappearance, but investigators would like to question him. Her case remains unsolved.
