    Details of Disappearance

    Hollar was last seen getting into her car, a black 1965 Volkswagen Beetle with the Illinois license plate number GR 7738 and the running boards removed, at a parking lot at 8th Avenue and Washington Street in Eugene, Oregon at 5:00 p.m. on August 20, 1973. She was leaving work at Bon Marche, where was a seamstress. She had only held the job for two weeks. Hollar may have been en route to her apartment in the 6600 block of west 27th Avenue. She planned to meet a friend that night and attend a neighborhood party, but she never showed up, and her friend left a note and went without her. She has never been heard from again.

    Hollar had moved to Eugene from Illinois the previous June after she graduated college. She lived with five roommates. All her clothes and personal belongings were left behind at her residence, and she never picked up her last paycheck. Her car and purse and have never been located. Hollar's family stated she was very happy with her life, liked her new job and had no reason to leave. She did have a habit of picking up hitchhikers.

    Hollar is believed to have been a victim of the serial killer Ted Bundy. A photograph of Bundy is posted below this case summary. He was executed in Florida in 1989 and confessed to many murders before his death, but Oregon detectives didn't have the opportunity to ask him about Hollar's case. She fits the profile of his other victims and he was known to have been in the area at the time of her disappearance.

    Bundy is thought to be responsible for Hollar's murder and for the murders of Nancy Baird, Ann Marie Burr, Lynette Culver, Julie Cunningham, Susan Curtis, Georgeann Hawkins, Rita Jolly, Debra Kent, Donna Manson, Denise Oliverson, Nancy Wilcox, and many other young women. The women continue to be listed as missing persons. Their remains have never been recovered.
