    Details of Disappearance

    Gayhart was last seen in Cape Coral, Florida on March 14, 1985. After finishing her shift at her restaurant job, she got into a pickup truck with an unidentified man. She has never been heard from again. She left behind three siblings as well as a son whom she had placed for adoption.

    Gayhart lived in Dansville, New York until 1984, when she moved with her boyfriend to the 50 block of northeast Barron Way in Fort Myers, Florida. She and her live-in boyfriend were reportedly not getting along at the time of her disappearance, and his mother had asked her to leave. Foul play is suspected in Gayhart's case, but few details are available. New York authorities are investigating.
