    Details of Disappearance

    Heide was last seen in Middletown Springs, Vermont on February 9, 1991. She was in the custody of the Vermont Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services at the time and was living in a foster home in Rutland City, Vermont. Heide got a weekend pass to visit her biological family in Middletown Springs, and was last seen at a relative's home. Authorities believe that she left of her own accord and hitchhiked out of the area.

    Heide's family thinks she traveled to Florida after her disappearance and may still live there. A relative might have seen her while vacationing at Walt Disney World in Big Lake, Florida, and there are other reports of her living in that state. She may have been arrested in Florida in the spring of 2012, but this hasn't been confirmed. Her case remains unsolved.
