Details of Disappearance

Mary was last seen in her bedroom in Venice, California at 9:30 p.m. on February 13, 1969. She has never been heard from again.

During the early hours of the morning, her parents and her disabled aunt were awakened by her cries for help, but they assumed she must be talking in her sleep and didn't investigate. Her three brothers, who shared her bedroom, slept through the night without being disturbed.

A neighbor arriving home at 3:00 a.m. saw a man standing in front of the unlocked sliding glass door of Mary's home. The man ran away and the neighbor assumed he'd left the area, and went to bed. The police believe Mary was abducted by the person the neighbor saw.

There was no ransom note, no suspects were ever identified, and in spite of an extensive search the child has never been found. Her case remains unsolved.
