    Details of Disappearance

    Cynthia departed from her family's residence in Washtenaw County, Michigan during the morning hours of January 19, 1970. She was en route to her school in Ann Arbor, Michigan at the time. Cynthia never arrived there as scheduled and has never been seen again.

    Cynthia called her family members on April 1, 1970 and April 2, 1970. She did not know her whereabouts at the time of the two telephone conversations. Cynthia has not been heard from again. Her relatives received an extortion-type phone call on May 5, 1970, nearly four months after she disappeared. There has not been any other communication regarding Cynthia's case since that time.

    Investigators thought Cynthia might have been an unidentified female whose remains were found at a dump in Florida in 1973, but the unidentified victim had crooked teeth and Cynthia's teeth are straight. Her disappearance remains unsolved.
