    Details of Disappearance

    Fawcett was a resident of Soquel, California in 1990. She was employed as a bartender at the Friendly Fox in Scotts Valley at the time. Fawcett and a friend, James Collier, went on a motorcycle ride through the San Lorenzo Valley on April 11, 1990. They traveled to several bars and played pool during the day, then returned to Collier's Scotts Valley residence during the evening. Fawcett wanted to visit Froggy's, a bar in Soquel, later in the night. Collier was tired, but he drove Fawcett to the Friendly Fox to retrieve her truck. Fawcett had parked her vehicle in her employer's lot for the day. Collier dropped Fawcett off near the Friendly Fox at approximately 9:30 p.m. that evening and drove away. She has never been seen again.

    Fawcett's truck remained in the bar's parking lot the following morning. The owner of the Friendly Fox reported Fawcett as a missing person later in the day. She failed to arrive at work for her bartending shift as scheduled. Authorities found that Fawcett's purse and driver's license were inside of her vehicle, but no other evidence was discovered. Fawcett is described as a very reliable person and it is suspected that she may have been taken against her will. Collier has fully cooperated with investigators through the years and is not considered to be involved in her disappearance. According to authorities, no suspects or leads have been established in Fawcett's case and it remains open and unsolved.
