Brenda was last seen in Woodbridge, Virginia on March 4, 1974. She lived there with her parents and four younger siblings. She didn't return home from school that day and has never been heard from again.
A witness reported seeing a girl resembling Brenda buying a bus ticket on the afternoon Brenda disappeared, but the account could not be verified. Brenda had reportedly spoken about wanting to run away to Florida. Two girls in her class at school did run away, but when they were found and brought home, Brenda wasn't with them. Many agencies still classify her as a runaway and it's possible she did leave of her own accord, but it would be very unusual for a runaway to go for decades without contacting anyone. Few details are available in her case.
