Details of Disappearance

Elliott was last seen in Homestead, Florida sometime between 1982 and 1984. Her children left with their father to visit family out of state, and while they were gone, they got a call informing them Elliott had "gone missing."

The circumstances of her disappearance are unclear, but a theory is that Elliott met with foul play after an argument with her then boyfriend. Her case remains unsolved.
