Details of Disappearance
Sondra was last seen on October 26th 1983 in Santa Fe, Texas. She was last seen inside her home and may have left for a moment to go to the store but she never returned to the house. The door to the home was found open and biscuits were baking in the oven. Her coat as well as her purse were found inside the house. Sondra was never seen or heard from again.
Sondra was reported as a missing child the next morning by her father. Investigators initially believed that Sondra had runaway from home and classified her case as such. Some investigators still believe this theory and think she may have assumed a new identity after she vanished. There is no evidence to prove she ran away from home.
Investigators have also considered the possibility that Sondra’s disappearance might be connected to a string of murders and disappearances of young females in the 1970s and 1980s in Galveston County, Texas. Michelle Thomas disappeared from the same area in 1985, 2 years after Sondra’s disappearance.
In October of 1988, Suzanne Richerson disappeared from Galveston, Texas and foul play is suspected in her disappearance. Investigators have not found any evidence that links these cases to one another. The only thing similar about them is that each woman is missing from Galveston County.
Investigators have found no evidence of foul play in Ramber’s case but it is classified as a non family abduction. Her disappearance remains unsolved.
