Details of Disappearance

Ramona was last seen in San Bernardino, California on May 19th 1985. She vanished under suspicious circumstances which are not clear and has never been seen or heard from again.

Ramona was initially assumed to be a runaway as she was struggling with her new school and her family life was tough on her.

Ramona was due to testify as a witness at a criminal trial at the time of her disappearance.

The criminal trial was against a man, Eddie McKeon, who was accused of molesting his stepdaughter whom was best friends with her at the time of her disappearance. Ramona convinced her friend to tell police of the molestation.

Eddie tried to prevent Ramona from presenting her testimony and went as far as threatening her father about it. He was allegedly out on bail during the day of her disappearance but there is no evidence implicating him in her disappearance and he is no longer alive.

Little information is available in her case but authorities suspect foul play. Her case remains unsolved.
