Details of Disappearance

Dodson was last seen at Legion Memorial Park in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania with her boyfriend, Daniel Dupnock, on July 10, 1976. She has never been heard from again.

On July 27, three weeks after Dodson's disappearance, Dupnock took his own life by gassing himself with carbon monoxide in his car. Authorities located women's clothing in Dupnock's vehicle after his death, but it isn't known whether the clothes were Dodson's.

Her case remains unsolved and foul play is suspected.
