    Details of Disappearance

    Heimann was last seen in Rochester, New York on October 30, 1981. She checked herself into the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation. She said she did not, in fact, need an evaluation, but she was afraid of a man and knew the hospital would have to hold her for 72 hours and she could be safe there. A man allegedly came looking for Heimann on the day she was scheduled to leave the hospital. She told a nurse at the hospital she was afraid to come home because the man would be there. She has never been heard from again. She usually took the bus for transportation in 1981.

    At the time she went missing, Heimann was only months away from obtaining her Ph.D from the Rochester University School of Medicine. Authorities initially refused to take a missing persons report; Heimann's mother was not able to report her missing until November 25, nearly a month after her disappearance. Her case remains unsolved.
