Age at disappearance:  18
Height: 5’5
Weight:  120-125 pounds
Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Blonde hair; blue eyes. Light complexion. She had a medical condition. She wears eyeglasses brand name Lazza Fortell, with brown frames. Blood type O-Positive.

Nickname: Jen
Dentals:  She has a gap between her upper front teeth.

Circumstances of Disappearance
Pentilla is originally from Great Falls, Montana. She moved to Missoula, Montana shortly before leaving for New Mexico in 1991. She left Missoula in late September 1991 and flew to San Diego, California, bringing her bicycle, camping gear, and two Bibles. She planned to bike from San Diego to Las Cruces, New Mexico, where she was to meet a missionary group and assist the poor, then on to visit Mexico.

Pentilla left San Diego, riding her white “Fuji” mountain bicycle and carrying a backpack and camping gear. From October 1, 1991, to October 17, Pentilla called her mother eight times, reporting her progress and her ambition to make it into Mexico.

She was last seen at a Shell service station on Pine Street in Deming, New Mexico, just 30 miles north of the Mexican border. From there she called her mother at approximately 09.00 on October 17 to say she’d changed her plans. She’d heard that a woman alone in Mexico might be in danger, so she’d decided to go to Minnesota to see a friend. Pentilla’s mother offered to pay for her transport there after she made more concrete plans, and Pentilla agreed to call her mother that evening. She never called back, never arrived at the friend’s home and has not been heard from again.

About a year later, on September 4, 1992, two dove hunters found Pentilla’s camping equipment and journal under a tarp in a remote area between Hatch and Deming off of State Road 26, about 46 miles northeast of Deming.

A missing persons report was generated on November 1, 1991, by the Missoula Police Department. The investigation of Jennifer’s disappearance was the subject of national news coverage but no information as to her location has surfaced.

Maryland<br>Bernadette Caruso</br>

Missing since: 09/27/86
Missing from: Baltimore, Baltimore County, Maryland.
Classification: Endangered Missing
Date Of Birth: 07/02/63
Age at disappearance: 23
Height: 5’4″
Weight:190 pounds
Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Green eyes; light brown hair. Pierced ears, beauty like mole on left cheek. Light complexion.
Clothing: Black tank dress, with pink tank top underneath the dress, pink belt, clear pantyhose, pink flat shoes, pink cotton jacket, carrying a bag containing a pink and black jacket in it.
Jewelry: Possibly wearing small earrings, “Mickey Mouse” face watch or gold, small, band watch, and a gold necklace

Details of Disappearance
Bernadette was last seen leaving Shaw’s Jewelry Store  in the Eastpoint Mall in northeastern Baltimore County, Maryland on September 27, 1986. Caruso had completed her work shift at the jewelry store and was seen entering her car in the mall’s parking lot at approximately 5:05 p.m. that day. She had told a co-worker that her estranged husband, Michael Caruso, had called her and she was going to meet him to discuss something. Caruso has never been heard from again. She was supposed to call a friend later that day, but never did. The vehicle she was driving, her grandmother’s gray/green 1982 Chevrolet Cavalier with Maryland license tags numbered FYW-097, has never been recovered. Bernadette was carrying a bag containing a pink and black jacket at the time of her disappearance.

Bernadette was separated from Michael, a Baltimore County police officer, at the time of her disappearance. They were involved in a bitter custody battle over their three-year-old daughter. Their daughter was spending the weekend with relatives on the day Bernadette vanished. Michael was later fired from the police department after being convicted of abusing a prisoner. Witnesses report that he often threatened his wife. He has not been charged in her case, however, nor has he or anyone else been named as a suspect.

Foul play is suspected in Bernadette’s disappearance due to the circumstances involved. Her loved ones describe her disappearance as uncharacteristic of her and they believe she came to harm. Caruso resided in the 4000 block of Rustico Road in Carrollwood, Maryland in 1986. Her case remains unsolved.

Kimberly Ann Moreau

Maine<br>Kimberly Moreau</br>

Missing since: 08/11/86
Missing from: Jay, Franklin County, Maine.
Classification: Non-Family Abduction
Date Of Birth: 01/21/69
Age at disappearance: 17
Height:5’7
Weight: 135 lbs.
Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Blonde hair; blue eyes.
Marks, Scars: Moreau has a surgical scar on her back, she has healed fractures.
Clothing: Moreau was last seen wearing a white blouse; jeans; white high-top sneakers;
and a man’s class ring which was engraved with “Mike ’87” and “Mike Staples.”
Dentals: Available

Details of Disappearance
Moreau cancelled plans to attend her high school’s Junior Prom on the night of  May 11, 1986 after an argument with her boyfriend. She told her sister that she was going out with friends and would return to their family’s residence in Jay, Maine in approximately one hour at 11:00 p.m. that evening. Moreau was later seen entering a late-model white Monte Carlo or Trans Am with a friend and a 25-year-old male. Apparently, Moreau’s friend was familiar with the man.

Moreau did not bring her purse, makeup or any of her personal belongings with her when she departed her home. Her friend stated that she and the male dropped Moreau off at approximately 3:45 a.m. the following morning. The friend told authorities that Moreau requested they let her out of the car on Jewell Street, one-half mile from Moreau’s residence which was on the same street. Moreau allegedly claimed she wanted to be alone and walk the remaining distance to her house. She has never been seen again. Foul play is suspected in her case. The man Moreau was last seen with is considered a person of interest in Moreau’s disappearance, but has never been charged in connection with it.

Suspected child serial killer Lewis S. Lent Jr. was investigated for possible involvement in Moreau’s disappearance. A photograph of him is posted below this case summary. He was convicted of murdering a Massachusetts child and Sara Wood, whose body has not been found, and was investigated in the disappearances of James Lusher, Tammie McCormick, Monique Santiago and several other cases. Lent has never been charged in any case besides Wood’s, however. Police believe it is unlikely that Lent was involved in Moreau’s case, but the possibility is not being ruled out.

Moreau enjoyed writing poetry and suntanning in 1986. Moreau’s father still lives at the home where she lived at the time of her disappearance; her mother died in 1988. Some agencies state that Moreau vanished from Livermore Falls, Maine. That city’s police force is investigating her disappearance. Moreau was declared legally dead in 1993. Her case remains unsolved.

Cathy Marie Moulton

Maine<br>Cathy Moulton</br>

Missing since 09/24/71
Missing from: Portland, Cumberland County, Maine.
Classification: Endangered Missing
Date Of Birth: 06/28/55
Age at disappearance: 16
Height: 5’2
Weight: 100 pounds

Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Light brown hair; blue eyes. She wore thick eyeglasses with a heavy dark plastic frame.
Marks, Scars: Moulton has scars on both of her feet due to wart removal. She has a white spot on her left elbow. Moulton has flat moles scattered across her back.
Clothing: A navy blue all-weather coat, navy blue pant dress, brown shoes and a brown leather clutch purse.
Dentals: Available. Moulton had her four eye teeth removed and braces on her teeth at the time of her disappearance. Her teeth were in good condition.
DNA: Available

Details of Disappearance
Moulton planned to attend a YWCA dance during the evening hours of September 24, 1971 in her hometown of Portland, Maine. She asked her father to drop her off on Cumberland Avenue that afternoon. Moulton wanted to purchase a pair of pantyhose and toothpaste before preparing for the dance. She stopped by a music store on Forest Avenue later in the day to visit a friend. She told her friend she would walk home and would see her at the dance that evening.

Moulton was last seen walking down Forest Avenue to head home. Her residence was about a mile and a half away. She was carrying a brown leather Mexican clutch purse which contained her house key, two tubes of toothpaste, and a very small amount of cash, not even enough for a bus ticket. She never arrived home and has not been seen again. Her parents reported her missing after she was not home by dinnertime.

It is possible that Moulton left of her own accord with her friend, friend Lester Everett (sometimes spelled “Everette”), traveling in a stolen blue 1963 Cadillac. There were unconfirmed sightings of Moulton, Everett and another male working in the potato fields in Aroostook County in northern Maine a few weeks after Moulton’s disappearance. There is no proof that she was ever actually there, however. Everett was eventually located alone. He said he did not know where Moulton was.

In 1983, a hunter said he came across a skeleton in the woods near Smyrna, Maine, surrounded by female clothing. Some investigators believe the remains were Moulton’s. The hunter was unable to retrace his footsteps and lead police back to the site, however, and the bones were never found.

Moulton’s case was reopened in the 1980s, but no evidence was uncovered regarding her whereabouts. She was a junior at Deering High School at the time of her disappearance. Investigators do not believe she ran away; she gave no indication that she was unhappy at the time of her disappearance. Her parents are both still alive, still live in the same house they shared with Moulton in 1971, and have also kept the same phone number. They continue to hope for a resolution in her case. Her disappearance remains unsolved.

Kristi O’Pry

November 28, 2009 by  
Filed under General

Louisiana<br>Kristi Opry</br>

Missing Since: 07/19/96
Missing from: Shreveport, Louisiana
Classification: Endangered Missing
Date Of Birth: 05/08/70
Age at disappearance: 26
Height: 5’7″
Weight: 115-120 lbs.
Hair Color: Blonde
Eye Color: Blue
Race: White
Gender: Female
Distinguishing Characteristics: Double-pierced ears.
Scar on left side of her neck.
Clothing: Jeans, a short-sleeved black midriff shirt,
brown sandals, & carried a black denim purse with light
pastel-colored stripes.

Details of Disappearance
O’Pry needed to run errands on July 19, 1996 in her hometown of Shreveport, Louisiana. Eric Dale Mickelson, a friend of her boyfriend, agreed to drive O’Pry if she paid for his gasoline costs. Mickelson and O’Pry were riding in his white 1971 Chevrolet Fleetside pickup truck. Photos of Mickelson and his vehicle are posted below this case summary.

O’Pry and Mickelson visited her sister’s residence on Meriweather Road and departed at approximately 8:00 p.m. Mickelson told authorities that he and O’Pry stopped at the Circle K store on the corner of Walker Road and Mackey Lane. Mickelson stated that O’Pry used the pay phone at the store. Phone records did not show any indication of any calls O’Pry may have made from the location. Mickelson claimed that he did not witness O’Pry make a call from the phone; he said that he was repairing his vehicle’s stereo speaker wires at the time she was inside the business. Mickelson stated that he proceeded to drop O’Pry off at the El Chico entrance of the South Park Mall on Jewella Avenue in Shreveport at approximately 8:30 p.m. O’Pry has never been seen again. She was carrying a black denim purse with light pastel-colored stripes at the time of her disappearance. She was reported missing four days after she was last seen.

O’Pry’s boyfriend, Jerry “Todd” Dean, told investigators that Mickelson called him between 10:00 and 11:00 a.m. on July 20, 1996, the day following O’Pry’s disappearance. Dean said that Mickelson told him he dropped O’Pry at the mall the previous evening. O’Pry lived with Dean and his friend, Wade Burnley, on Linwood Avenue at the time she was last seen. Dean did not inform O’Pry’s family that she never returned home until July 23, four days after she initially disappeared.

O’Pry did not take any personal belongings with her when she vanished. She left behind her three-year-old daughter, something that her family said was completely uncharacteristic of her behavior. Security guards at the South Park Mall told investigators that they did not observe anyone matching O’Pry’s description at the shopping center the night she was last seen. Authorities are not certain if she arrived at the location.

Both Dean and Burnley passed polygraph tests administered by law enforcement shortly after O’Pry’s disappearance. Mickelson refused to take a lie detector test, saying that he considers the devices unreliable. He was considered the prime suspect in O’Pry’s case, although for many years he maintained his innocence. He was subsequently charged with the unrelated murder of an elderly man. In 2007, while in prison awaiting trial on that charge, Mickelson confessed to O’Pry’s murder. He said he had strangled her and disposed of her body in a pond on his property on Woolworth Road, but later moved the remains to another location. Some months later, in August 2007, he was charged with second-degree murder in O’Pry’s case. Authorities stated they found unspecified evidence in the pond that corroborated his confession, but her body has not been located.

Extensive searches have not yielded any clues as to O’Pry’s whereabouts. Foul play is suspected due to the circumstances involved in O’Pry’s disappearance.

  • Fri. July 26, 1996 — A search of Kristi’s home reveals that none of her personal belongings are missing. “This is a girl who really cared about her appearance … she wouldn’t have left on her own without all her stuff.” says her sister Paige.

Family members begin posting flyers in Shreveport, East Texas and the surrounding area reporting that Kristi is missing.
  • August 1996– South Park Mall Security Guards that were at the mall entrance on horseback stated that they did not recall seeing anyone fitting Kristi’s description being dropped off between 8 and 9pm the night Kristi vanished. Private Investigator and retired Shreveport Police Officer Ken Hudson of Kenro Investigations offers his services free of charge. He advised the family to obtain Kristi’s dental records so they could be added to NCIC. A few days later William “Bill” Meeks of M & M Investigations also offered to donate his services to assist in the search for Kristi. Reporter Meredith White with Channel 6 (NBC) in Shreveport does the first “family” interview. Kristi’s mother and sister Paige were interviewed. The Times, a newspaper in Shreveport has done several stories on Kristi’s disappearance asking for anyone with information to come forward. The Thrifty Nickel newspaper in Shreveport also donated space in their paper. They ran a series of display ads for several weeks. The Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office August 30, 1996 Press Release .
  • September 1996– Eric Mickelson, the man last seen with Kristi is refusing to cooperate with authorities and has refused to take a polygraph test. He claims that he doesn’t believe in them. Eric Mickelson told the detectives that before he dropped Kristi off at South Park Mall he stopped at the Circle K store at the corner of Walker Road and Mackey Lane across from Southwood High School so that Kristi could make a telephone call.
