    Details of Disappearance

    Martha's twin brother, Lawson Green, picked up from her hostess job at the Holiday Inn on April 15, 1987. They were driving back to their family's residence in White Bluff, Tennessee in a car Lawson had borrowed when the vehicle ran out of gas on Highway 46 in Dickson County, Tennessee at approximately 9:00 p.m. Lawson left to purchase fuel; Martha elected to stay alone in the car. He discovered she had vanished upon his return approximately fifteen minutes later. Martha's handbag was still inside the vehicle, as were the keys. There was no sign of a struggle at the scene. She has never been seen again.

    Authorities had a suspect in Martha's disappearance, a man who was incarcerated in Florida on rape charges after she went missing. The suspect took investigators to several places where he claimed he had buried Martha's body, but searches of those locations turned up no evidence. The individual was subsequently murdered in prison and was never charged in Martha's case, but he is still considered the primary suspect in her disappearance. Green's case remains unsolved.
