    Details of Disappearance

    Reilly was last seen in the early morning hours of January 31, 1985 in West Seneca, New York. She was leaving the Pierce Arrow Restaurant at the time and was accompanied by an off-duty New York State Trooper. Reilly was carrying a red purse with a shoulder strap at the time of her disappearance. The trooper returned to the eatery alone approximately one hour later. Reilly has never been heard from again. The trooper has not been charged in her disappearance.

    The trooper was later fired from the department for unrelated reasons. He is considered a suspect in Reilly's case and has refused to cooperate with law enforcement regarding her disappearance. Reilly's father believes that his daughter was murdered after avoiding possible sexual advances on the night of her disappearance. There is no evidence to substantiate this theory, but authorities agree that foul play is suspected. Reilly's case remains unsolved.

    Reilly was employed as a restaurant server in 1985. She enjoys writing and art.
