Just before her disappearance, she was elected the first female president of the Clatsop County Sheriff's Department Explorer Post. She is the youngest of six children and is described as a reliable teenager who didn't smoke or drink alcohol. Her family stated she wasn't having any problems and would not have run away from home. Joan is missing under suspicious circumstances and her loved ones believe she was murdered. Both her parents died within a month of each other in 1994, but Joan's siblings are still searching for her.
