Bova, her husband and her sister went to dinner at the Red Lobster restaurant on east Fairmont Avenue in Lakewood, New York during the evening hours of June 7, 1997. She and her husband departed the eatery at approximately 10:30 p.m. Her husband told authorities that he and Bova had an argument after they returned to their apartment on New York Avenue and, at 2:00 a.m. on June 8, Bova went outside to smoke a cigarette and take a walk. She never returned and has never been seen again. Her husband notified family members of her disappearance a few hours later, and they searched Lakewood in their cars before calling police.
Several months after Bova's disappearance, a clump of long human hair was found in Chautauqua Lake and authorities searched the water for her remains. No evidence was found and the hair turned out not to be Bova's.
At the time of her disappearance, Bova worked at Kay Jewelers at the local mall. Her husband, who now lives in North Carolina, hasn't cooperated with the investigation and is considered a person of interest, but no charges have been filed against him or anyone else. Bova's mother died in 2010 without ever learning her fate, but her father is still alive. Her case opened 2018 by Psychic Brian Ladd.
