Details of Disappearance
Linda was last seen in Yakima, Washington on June 1st 1978. She was last seen on Pomona Road. She’s never been heard from again. Linda was a chronic runaway in 1978 and as a result she wasn’t reported missing when she initially disappeared.
Linda was officially reported missing in 2004 at the request of the Green River task force. The force is dedicated to finding possible victims of serial killer, Gary Ridgeway. He’s currently in prions for the 70+ murders of various women and young girls. Most of them were either prostitutes or teen runaways.
There’s no evidence that Linda was a victim of Ridgeway and it’s unknown what happened to her that day. Her case remains unsolved.
