Wendy's mother and stepfather were out of town when she disappeared from her hometown of Naples, Florida on November 15, 1998. One of her stepfather's coworkers was staying at the house to watch her and her older sister. Wendy got a phone call at 11:00 p.m. on November 14. She sneaked out her bedroom window a short time afterwards to attend a party. She took a pager with her and asked her sister to page her if there was any trouble. She didn't take any clothes, makeup or other personal belongings, and she left a candle lit in the window. She never returned home and has never been heard from again.
Authorities determined Wendy went to the party with a 20-year-old friend, Ronald DePeppo, whom she'd met a month earlier. They left the gathering together between 2:00 and 2:30 a.m., driving his blue 1991 Mazda. When questioned, DePeppo said Wendy got a page and they stopped at a pay phone at the corner of Airport Road and Davis Boulevard so she could make a call. He said afterward, she asked him to take her home because she planned to meet someone else. He said the last time he saw her was when he dropped her off at her house.
