Details of Disappearance
Wagner was last seen in Jersey City, New Jersey on October 20, 1972. She went out that day on a coffee date with a man who has only been publicly identified by his first name, Dennis. She never returned home after her date and has never been heard from again. She didn't take many personal belongings with her, and left behind her two small children.
Dennis also disappeared after his date with Wagner, and never picked up his last paycheck. This led people to speculate he and Wagner had run away together. Her family, however, believed foul play was involved; they said she wouldn't have abandoned her children, and Dennis had a reputation for violence.
Dennis's whereabouts were unknown for decades after Wagner's disappearance. In 2020, he was located live and well in Florida, but he refused to discuss Wagner's disappearance with her family.
At the time of Wagner's disappearance, she was a stay-at-home mother who occasionally earned money doing housekeeping. Her case remains unsolved.
