Details of Disappearance

Lisa was last seen on May 1st 1981 in Elyria, Ohio. She told her family she was going out to walk her dog but she never returned home afterwards.

Lisa was allegedly accompanied by a male drug dealer at the time of her disappearance. After Lisa’s disappearance, he returned to the Elyria area alone and was imprisoned. He did not provide any information regarding Lisa’s whereabouts and has since died. Lisa was last known to be in the Tampa area of Florida.

Her mother last heard from Lisa in 1984, over three years after she vanished. She has never been heard from since this time. In September of 2003, authorities tested Lisa’s dental records against the infamous Pontchartrain Jane Doe, an unidentified female who was located deceased in Pontchartrain lake on June 19th 1986. Lisa’s dental records did not match those of the Jane Doe which ruled out the possibility that they were the same person.

Lisa’s disappearance remains unsolved. It’s possible she travelled to Mexico after she was last known to be in Tampa, Florida. Some agencies have stated she disappeared on September 1st 1984.
