Details at time of disappearance: Frances was last seen in Sevierville, Tennessee on May 20, 1966. Her husband, Coy Winston Leatherwood, was abusive and she had repeatedly left him, but Coy would always convince her to reconcile and return to him.
On the day of her disappearance, Frances was staying at her cousin's home and Coy came and brought her back to their residence. When they arrived at the house, Frances's leg was bruised and swollen and she was limping. Their children were there and saw her injury, and her husband said he would take her to the doctor in the morning.
The couple's children left late that night and never saw their mother again. Coy stated he did take her to the doctor, parked the car and went inside to wait in the waiting room, but Frances never arrived for her appointment and never checked in with the receptionist.
She left her purse behind, and within a week Coy had sold many of her belongings and burned the rest. Within six months he had filed for divorce and put their home up for sale, and after seven years he had her declared legally dead and cashed in her life insurance policy.
Authorities believe Frances was probably murdered by her husband, but her body was never found and no charges have been filed against anyone in her disappearance.
