Details of Disappearance

Freeman was last seen in Missoula, Montana on September 7, 1970. She left her apartment in Missoula at 9:30 p.m. en route to her student teaching job fifty miles away in Hamilton, but never arrived. She was driving a green and white 1960 Ford Fairlane with the Montana license plate number 31-315; it has never been recovered.

Freeman has never been heard from again. There's no indication that she left of her own accord; she left money behind in three bank accounts, and meat stored in a meat locker. Her family describes her as a responsible and deeply religious woman who wouldn't have left without warning.

She had gotten a divorce in 1969 and her ex-husband was in Thailand serving in the Air Force. She was attending the University of Montana at the time of her disappearance; she'd enrolled in 1968. Her case remains unsolved.
