Details of Disappearance

Jennifer was last seen while she and her family were camping at a campground approximately ten miles north of Moab, Utah.

She was playing in the sand by the river with her parents and older brother when her father went back to their camper to retrieve something. There was a dogfight while he was gone, and everyone was watching the dogs. While Jennifer's mother and brother were distracted, the child disappeared.

Jennifer has never been heard from again. Her parents cannot recall anyone at the campground being interviewed about her disappearance. Many of the guests were transients who could not be found later.

There was an old car parked between Jennifer's camper and the river at the time she disappeared; it is unknown if the vehicle had anything to do with her disappearance.

It's possible that Jennifer fell into the nearby Colorado River and drowned, but her body has never been recovered. Her case remains unsolved.
