Cynthia departed from her family's residence in the 1400 block of Warrington in Washtenaw County, Michigan during the morning hours of January 19, 1970. She was en route to her school, Forsythe Junior High School in the 1600 block of Newport Road in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She didn't like to ride the bus and preferred to walk the one-mile route to school. Cynthia never arrived there as scheduled and has never been seen again. She had no prior history of running away from home and she was a good student. She was carrying only two or three dollars in cash when she vanished.
There were possible sightings of Cynthia in the Ann Arbor area in the days following her disappearance, but none were confirmed. Cynthia called her family members on April 1, 1970 and April 2, 1970. She did not know her whereabouts at the time of the two telephone conversations, which were just two hours apart. Cynthia has not been heard from again. Her relatives received an extortion-type phone call on May 5, 1970, nearly four months after she disappeared. There has not been any other communication regarding Cynthia's case since that time.
Investigators thought Cynthia might have been an unidentified female whose remains were found at a dump in Florida in 1973, but the unidentified victim had crooked teeth and Cynthia's teeth are straight. Her disappearance remains unsolved.
