Details of Disappearance

Heide was last seen in Middletown Springs, Vermont on February 9th 1991. She was in the custody of the Vermont Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services at the time of her disappearance. She was also living in a foster home in Rutland City, VT at the time.

On the day of her disappearance, Heide had gotten a weekend pass to visit her biological family in the Middletown Springs area. She was last seen by a relative at her family’s home. Investigators believe Heide ran away from the home and hitchhiked out of the area. Her family believes she traveled to Florida after her disappearance and has been living there for years.

A family member of Heides says they may have seen her while on vacation at Walt Disney World in Big Lake, Florida. There are additional reports of her living in the state but nothing has been confirmed. It’s also possible that Heide was arrested in Florida in 2012 but this hasn’t been confirmed and she’s still missing.

Her case remains unsolved and is classified as an endangered runaway.
