Details of Disappearance

Dudek was last seen arguing with her boyfriend at her home in Salisbury, Maryland at 7:30 a.m. on January 7, 2002. She offered her teen daughter a ride to school, but her daughter declined.

Her boyfriend stated he returned home from work at 10:00 a.m. and Dudek was gone, but her car was in the driveway and Dudek's infant son was in his car seat. When her daughter came home from school several hours later, Dudek still wasn't home and her car was still parked outside. She has never been heard from again.

Her daughter, who was the one who reported her missing, believes she's deceased, as she doesn't think Dudek would go so long without contacting her loved ones. Her case remains unsolved and she's considered missing under highly suspicious circumstances.
