    Details of Disappearance

    Hollingsworth was last seen in Fort Smith, Arkansas on July 10, 1985. She had visited her daughter in Texas, then returned home before she vanished. Her daughter reported her missing. Hollingsworth's daughter stated she came to her mother's house on July 12 and noticed that her vehicle was parked in the driveway, locked, but no one was home.

    The air conditioner was running inside the home and the front door was not padlocked, which is uncharacteristic of Hollingsworth. There were no indications of a struggle and most of her belongings were left behind. She has never been heard from again. In addition to her daughter, Hollingsworth left behind a young son whom she wasn't in contact with. Few details are available in her case.
