    Details of Disappearance

    Mayden was last seen at her residence in the 100 block of Hickory Hills Circle in Biloxi, Mississippi on April 30, 1980. She has never been heard from again. Her house was left in disarray with indications of a struggle. There were traces of blood, which someone had tried to clean up. However, there was no sign of forced entry to the residence and nothing was missing except Mayden's pet bulldog, her vehicle and Mayden herself. Her vehicle was found abandoned at the Holiday Inn on Highway 90 in Biloxi. There were bloodstains in the trunk; investigators believe her body was transported in there.

    Mayden was the widow of an Air Force Colonel. She was an avid golfer at the time of her disappearance and played the sport competitively since at least the 1960s. No charges have been files against anyone in her presumed homicide.
