Details of Disappearance

Annalycia was last seen at Clyde's Market in her hometown of Chiloquin, Oregon at 5:30 p.m. on July 9, 1994. Her mother's live-in boyfriend, William Russell Spear, took her with him when he went on a fishing trip that day. Annalycia did not have a car seat and traveled in an open backpack.

After he finished fishing, Spear drove with Annalycia to Clyde's Market and left her in the car for a few minutes while he stepped inside to buy an apple. When he came out, she was gone.

Spear drove home to Sprague River, Oregon and asked Annalycia's mother, Alice R. Fowler, if she had picked up the baby. They went back to Clyde's Market, looked around for Annalycia and asked people if they had seen her. They didn't report her disappearance to the police until 6:19 p.m., nearly an hour after Spear last saw her.

Investigators retraced Spear's steps, but found little evidence as to Annalycia's whereabouts. Spear did stop at a Sprague River gas station before his fishing trip and the attendant remembered hearing an infant crying in the car.

This is the last time anyone besides Spear could confirm Annalycia's whereabouts. The gas station attendant died only a couple of days after the baby's disappearance, however.

In 1995, Fowler sued Spear for $4 million in damages relating to Annalycia's disappearance; she claimed his negligent babysitting caused the infant to vanish. The lawsuit was later dismissed for lack of evidence supporting Fowler's claim.

Spear is considered a person of interest in Annalycia's case, but investigators can find no evidence of any crime. She is believed to be missing under suspicious circumstances. Police believe foul play was involved in her disappearance, and stated their investigation had taken them out of state. Her case remains unsolved.
