Details of Disappearance

Ilene was last seen on December 20th 1980 in Carson, California. She was last seen roller skating outside her family’s home which was located at the Rancho Dominguez Estates Mobile Home Park in the 400 block of East Gardena Boulevard. She was last seen at approximately 10:30 am. She vanished soon afterwards and was never seen or heard from again.

Ilene’s roller skates were found inside the front door of her family’s home but her sandals were missing. She was reported missing two hours after she was last seen by her mother. She disappeared only one day after her 6th birthday.

Both of Ilene’s parents were separated at the time of her disappearance and she lived with her mother and her mothers boyfriend, Harry Jolly at the time. Ilene apparently did not have a good relationship with the boyfriend at the time and they both disliked one another.

He was arrested on an unrelated offense that occurred in Orange County, California on the day she disappeared but he was ruled out as a suspect in her disappearance. Investigators believe that abduction is possible in Ilene’s case but no evidence has been found to suggest what happened to her.

Both her parents have since finalized their separation. Her family continues to search for her. They believe she is likely deceased.

Ilene’s disappearance remains unsolved.
