Godfrey was reportedly hired by John Edward Robinson Sr. in 1984 in Overland Park, Kansas. A photo of Robinson is posted at the end of this case summary. Godfrey was interested in pursuing a business career and told her family that Robinson had arranged for her and a group of women to fly to San Antonio, Texas to enroll in a clerical skills course. Godfrey believed she was hired to work as a sales representative for his Kansas-based management consulting firm, Equi II. Godfrey's family members told authorities that Robinson picked her up at their residence in Overland Park on September 1, 1984 and said he would drive her to the airport for her flight. Godfrey has never been heard from again.
One of Robinson's former associates told authorities in 2000 that Robinson paid him $50,000 during the mid-1980s to recruit women for an escort service in Kansas. The associate claimed that he was a friend of Godfrey's and convinced her to contact Robinson, though she most likely did not know his true motives at the time. The associate said that he blamed himself for Godfrey's disappearance. Godfrey was an accomplished amateur figure skater before her 1984 disappearance. She is a 1983 graduate of Olathe North High School.
