Details of Disappearance Bernice was last seen in Everett, Washington on October 12, 1962. She has never been heard from again. Her sister reported her missing on December 18.
Thirty-three years after her disappearance, an informant told police Bernice had been murdered by her husband, Donald Selby, and her body buried under a road in Everett. The couple had been in the process of a divorce in 1962. Donald had long been a person of interest in his wife's disappearance. He died in 1980.
Authorities dug up a twelve-foot span of the road in the 6300 block of 97th Drive northeast, but found nothing. Although her body hasn't been located, investigators do believe Bernice was the victim of a homicide.
