Details of Disappearance Smock was last seen in Salt Lake City, Utah on January 1, 1985. Her father dropped her off at a Greyhound bus station with an unknown male companion. She had $50 in cash and planned to travel to Wendover, Nevada to work as a cocktail waitress at the Red Garter Hotel & Casino. She has never been heard from again and there is no record that she ever actually boarded the bus to Nevada.
It's uncharacteristic of Smock to be out of touch with her family; her family stated she was close to her children and kept a regular routine. Her two daughters lived with her ex-husband, but Smock visited them regularly. She was estranged from her second husband in 1985, and he was reportedly jealous, threatening and violent towards her. Smock's second husband is now deceased and was never questioned by police.
Smock's first husband described her as very trusting. Her case remains unsolved and foul play is suspected.
