Details of Disappearance

Barker was last seen at her residence in Ashland, Kentucky on February 8, 1983. She lived in a trailer in the 3400 block of south 29th Street at the time; she shared the residence with her son. Barker has never been heard from again. No eyewitnesses saw her leave the trailer park, which had approximately 60 homes. Nothing was missing from the trailer to suggest Barker left of her own accord; her clothing, purse, and other belongings were all undisturbed inside.

Investigators have several suspects in Barker's disappearance, but they've never had enough evidence to arrest anyone. Her case remains unsolved.
