Details of Disappearance

At the time of her disappearance, Bullock was working as a waitress at a truck stop on Highway 26 in Poplarville, Mississippi. Indications are that Bullock continued to work there until early to mid-1978; this is the last indication of her whereabouts. For unclear reasons, Bullock wasn't reported missing until 2017. One of her daughters filed the report.

In February 2022, Bullock was located alive at a Mississippi nursing home. She had been living under an alias name since 1980 and had married and raised a son under that name. When confronted about her identity, Bullock admitted to the truth.

The son she raised under her alias is now trying to identify himself; he stated Bullock and her late husband had purchased him from his biological parents for $1,000 and had raised him as their own.
