Details of Disappearance Pry was last seen at the Last Chance Bar on 8 Mile and Woodward in Detroit, Michigan sometime in 1982. She has never been heard from again. Her car was found abandoned at the bar, packed full of her belongings, including her purse. The exact date of her disappearance is unknown.
Pry had a high-risk lifestyle; she had been addicted to heroin since her teens, and was involved in prostitution to support her habit. She frequently stole, including from clients, to pay for drugs. The Last Chance Bar where she was last seen was notorious for its prostitution activity, and was eventually shut down by the state.
Her sister stated Pry was frequently beaten by her pimp, a violent man who was involved in a variety of criminal activities. They had a young daughter together, and Pry's sister stated she would not have abandoned the child deliberately. Her pimp is now deceased and it's unclear whether he was ever a suspect in Pry's case.
After she disappeared, her family hired a private detective to search for her. An anonymous caller threatened Pry's father, saying that if he didn't stop searching for Pry, one of her four sisters would be taken too. Her disappearance remains unsolved.
