    Details of Disappearance

    Condon was last seen between approximately 12:45 and 1:15 a.m. on February 27, 1991 in Spring Township, Pennsylvania. She was working as a bartender at Carl's Bad Tavern at the time; it is located in a rural area on State Route 550 two miles north of Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, near Interstate 80. The business was abandoned and unlocked when other employees arrived in the later morning hours. Condon's gray 1986 Mercury Capri was found in the parking lot. The bar's receipts were put away and the lights were off. There was no sign of robbery or any struggle inside the bar, but Condon's black cowboy boots were located in the men's restroom, neatly arranged. They were the only shoes she had with her that night. Investigators are uncertain if the placement of Condon's boots is related to her disappearance. She has never been heard from again.

    It is uncharacteristic of Condon to leave without warning; she is described as a very punctual, reliable individual. She was close to her two young children, and her boyfriend of two years said they had a good relationship. She was reported missing the same day she disappeared, but police didn't begin looking for her until March 2, after she missed a visitation period with her children, which is uncharacteristic of her.

    Authorities would like to question three unidentified Caucasian male patrons who were at Carl's Bad Tavern during the evening Condon vanished. It is not known if any of these men are connected to Condon's case; they are simply wanted for questioning. Sketches of the patrons are available below this case summary. It was a slow night at the bar and these men are the only patrons the police have been unable to identify. Certain acquaintances of Condon's have not been cooperative with the investigation, but none of them have been named publicly and none are being called suspects in her disappearance.

    Condon's case remains unsolved. She left behind two children, who lived with their father in 1991. She was divorced and lived with her boyfriend in the 1900 block of Harvest Circle in State College, Pennsylvania. She is a former resident of Clearfield County, Pennsylvania, where she graduated from Clearfield Area High School in 1980. In addition to her bartending job, ran a home cleaning service. She had been working at Carl's Bad Tavern for only two weeks prior to her disappearance. The establishment has since closed.
