    Details of Disappearance

    Nancy was last seen in Columbia Falls, Montana on April 21, 1976. She babysat for a neighborhood family that day and was last seen walking home afterwards. She never arrived at her residence and has never been heard from again. Her loved ones stated she was a normal teenager and a good student in 1976, and embraced the hippie counterculture.

    Less than a year before Nancy went missing, another teen girl, Robyn Pettinato, disappeared from a town about ten miles from Columbia Falls. She has never been found. It's theorized that there's some connection between the two cases, but this hasn't been proven. Few details are available in either case; both of them remain unsolved.
