Details of Disappearance

Crawford received a phone call from an unidentified man with a deep voice. on July 16, 1986 at her residence at Cherrywood Mobile Home Park in the 100 block of Cherrywood Park in Simpsonville, South Carolina. She told her son she was going to visit a friend at approximately 10:30 p.m., shortly after her phone conversation ended. She never returned home.

Crawford's friend told authorities that Crawford never arrived at her residence that evening. Two witnesses believe they saw her with an unidentified Caucasian male outside of the Ingles in Simpsonville on July 18, two days after she disappeared. She has never been heard from again.

Crawford's burgundy and white or blue and white two-door 1978 Chevrolet Malibu was found abandoned at the Fountain Inn parking lot on Georgia Street in Simpsonville on July 19, 1986, in front of Wilson Sporting Goods. This is about six miles from where she was last seen. The vehicle had been wiped clean of prints and the driver's seat was pushed all the way back; Crawford drove with it pushed forward.

At the time of her disappearance, Crawford was dealing with financial problems and she may have been depressed. Since she went missing there hasn't been any activity on her Social Security number. She worked as a weaver at the Beattie Plant when she went missing, and enjoyed drawing and ballroom dancing. Her case remains unsolved.
