    Details of Disappearance

    Jenkins was last seen at the Bridge Inn in Oak Hill, Ohio on November 1, 1977. She had moved in with her boyfriend, and disappeared after they were both arrested for robbery. She has never been heard from again. Foul play is suspected in Jenkins's disappearance; investigators believe she was murdered and her body thrown into a well. The police don't have sufficient resources to act on this information, however. Her case remains unsolved.
