    Details of Disappearance

    Ferguson was last seen in Jasper, Alabama on September 16, 1988. She was supposed to visit her cousin in Birmingham, Alabama that day, but never arrived and has never been heard from again. Two days later, her new Cadillac was found abandoned on the shoulder of Alabama 257 near Curry, Alabama. Two shotgun blasts had been fired through the vehicle, but no blood or other evidence of injury. Authorities found some of Ferguson's jewelry on the floor of her car and some broken jewelry items on her garage floor as well.

    Ferguson left behind two young sons. She was in the process of a divorce at the time of her disappearance. It's uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning or not tell her family of her plans. Her case remains unsolved and foul play is suspected.
