Details of Disappearance

Dunham was last seen in Alton, Missouri on May 10, 1985. She didn't show up at her shoe factory job in West Plains, Missouri that day and has never been heard from again.

Dunham's family believes she met with foul play, as they don't think she would have abandoned her two young children. She lived in Thomasville, Missouri at the time of her disappearance.

Dunham's husband was reportedly physically abusive towards her, and her sister believes her husband was involved in her disappearance. Dunham's husband has never faced charges in her disappearance. Her case remains unsolved.
