Her vehicle, a bright red 1989 Dodge Daytona Hatchback was recovered 11 hours later by police in south suburban Harvey, Illinois. Her keys were still in the ignition inside the locked car. A nearby resident saw the vehicle dropped off around 10:00 p.m. by two men in what was described as a tow truck. Around 3:00 a.m. police were called to the scene by another resident who reported that someone was trying to break into the car.
In addition to the keys, police found Abrams’ camera inside the car. Police alerted the family by telephone shortly after 3:00 a.m. Three days later her purse was located three blocks away from the car’s location. Abrams’ wallet and credit cards were gone, but her checkbook was still in the purse. Authorities suspect she met with foul play.Her case remains unsolved.

A Silver Alert is a public notification system to broadcast information about missing persons – especially seniors with Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia or other mental disabilities – in order to aid in their return.
Silver Alerts use a wide array of media outlets — such as commercial radio stations, television stations, and cable TV — to broadcast information about missing persons. Silver Alerts also use variable-message signs on roadways to alert motorists to be on the lookout for missing seniors. In cases in which a missing person is believed to have gone missing on foot, Silver Alerts have used reverse 911 systems to notify nearby residents of the neighborhood surrounding the missing person’s last known location.
Activation criteria for Silver Alerts vary from state to state. Some states limit Silver Alerts to persons over the age of 65, who have been medically diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia or similar mental disability. Other states expand Silver Alert to include all adults with mental of developmental disabilities. In general, the decision to Issue a Silver Alert is made by the law enforcement agency investigating the report of a missing person. Public information in a Silver Alert usually consists of the name and description of the missing person and a description of the missing person’s vehicle and license plate number.

Details of Disappearance:
Phyllis was seen alive on May 7, 1988 at her parents Lincoln Park (Michigan) home. It was her 23rd birthday. Her father took her to visit her alleged boyfriend, , where he was staying at the Hotel Yorba, in Detroit. Michigan.
On May 13, 1988, Phyllis telephoned her parents home saying she was ready to be picked up. When her dad got there, there were two men at the entrance, and they told dad, Phyllis wasn’t there. That didn’t really phase her dad, for she had been a no show a few times before. He went home thinking nothing of it.
A couple days later, the family still hadn’t heard from Phyllis. She had missed her dad’s, and sister’s birthday,along with a planned small family gathering, for her sister was moving to Arizona to begin a new life with her husband, and new job.
It took a couple weeks, but they were finally able to get the Detroit Police Dept to open up a missing person’s case for Phyllis.

Balloon release, flower toss, butterfly release, roadside displays or demonstrations
Display Board, Banners, Signs, Marques

Tables set up for displays of missing persons photos and information
Public event or safety activities
Invite the families of unsolved homicide, missing, public, family, friends and media (our team will aid in media coverage)
The most important thing is to be creative in your rally stop

National Tour Purpose and Inspiration
The annual tour was created to generate new interest in cold cases of missing people across our nation. The inspiration came in 2004 from the case of North Carolina college student Leah Roberts, who had gone on a cross-country trip of self-exploration. Her wrecked and abandoned vehicle was found, but Leah is still missing. Leah’s case went cold and interest faded until CUE volunteers set out on a grueling 14-day trip to retrace her route and inform the media of all those who were missing in the path of the tour. In the years to follow, it only seemed right to keep hope alive after families across the country voiced the need for more help and supported the tour idea.
National Tour Objective
The national road tour, called “On the Road to Remember,” is an awareness campaign that focuses on missing persons cases that have gone cold or have not received appropriate media coverage on the local level – much less the national level.. The tour, which travels through many states annually, provides that attention.
In all cases of missing people, it is vital to inform the public of the missing person’s circumstances quickly and to disseminate that information to the media and the public. In most cases where details are released immediately to the public through an organized campaign, the public brings forth information that aids in the investigation and or the location of the victim. The media plays a significant role in getting the word out on the behalf of the missing person and should be recognized as a vital resource to any investigation.
Interest in many of the cases we have featured in previous tours has been renewed. The media has learned about local cases they were unaware of; case investigations have been renewed, and searches conducted. Information has resulted in new leads in some cases, and has even helped identify an unknown decedent and in 2008 solved a cold case of twenty eight years. And finally, each tour some of the missing featured have been found from various efforts, which is the main reason we conduct the tour despite the toll it takes on our all-volunteer staff.
It is the belief of the CUE Center for Missing Persons that all investigations, the public, volunteers and the media should work in collaboration on cases involving missing children and adults; until this happens, their will continue to be cases of the missing labeled “cold” or “inactive.”
