Details of Disappearance
Kathy Wilcox was last seen in Otsego, Michigan on July 12th 1972. She was seen leaving her family’s residence following an argument. She left angrily and told her family “I will never see you again” as she left. She has never been seen or heard from since.
Kathy left behind all of her personal belongings and money behind so investigators have deemed her running away as unlikely. Her sister stated that Kathy started to become rebellious at the time she disappeared and also hung out with a rough crowd. She lived on West Franklin Street at the time.
Little information is available on her case which remains unsolved.
