    Details of Disappearance

    McCorkle was last seen in East Moline, Illinois on August 14, 1981. She lived with her mother in the 1500 block of 11th Avenue. Her mother left in the morning and when she came home that afternoon, she found McCorkle's toddler locked in a bathroom. McCorkle was missing and the only thing that disappeared with her was a nightgown she'd worn the night before. All her clothes and other possessions, including a new car with a full tank of gas, were left behind. She has never been heard from again.

    Little information is available in McCorkle's disappearance, but the police and her loved ones don't believe she would have abandoned her child. Her case remains unsolved.
