Details of Disappearance

Marcotte was last seen at Cliff House in the Sutro Baths area of San Francisco, California, at approximately 10:15 p.m. on March 24, 1990. She was visiting the area with about fourteen friends.

According to witnesses, Marcotte was sitting on one of the outer rocks near Point Lobos Avenue when she reached down to adjust a shoelace, slipped, and fell. Her friends said she hit her head on a rock as she fell into the ocean below. They ran down to try to help her, but by the time they got there, her body had been swept out to sea.

An extensive search turned up no sign of Marcotte, but she is presumed drowned. She is the youngest of five children and was a senior at Monte Vista High School at the time of her disappearance. Her body has never been found.
