    Details of Disappearance

    Debra resided in Mystic, Connecticut at the time of her disappearance. She was visiting her aunt and uncle in Vernon, Connecticut when she disappeared on July 24, 1968. She was last seen at Henry Park in the 100 block of South Street, walking with a cousin from Foxhill Drive towards the park's swimming pool. The two girls realized they didn't have towels, and Debra's cousin went to get some. When she returned, she couldn't find Debra. She has never been heard from again.

    Debra's mother got a birthday card from her on the same day Debra disappeared. In the card, Debra wrote she was being good and helping her aunt. Few details are available in her case.
