Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Bodor was last seen in Orlando, Florida on February 28, 1988. She called her mother to say she'd be unable to pick her up from work that day, but said she'd be home some time in the morning to cook breakfast. She never arrived at her residence in the 2800 block of Hambleton Avenue and has never been heard from again. She left all her personal belongings behind, including her clothing and toothbrush.
Bodor had dropped out of sight before, but never for more than a couple of days at a time, and she would usually call her mother to let her know her whereabouts. She had no prior history of abandoning her son, who was seven years old at the time of her disappearance. When she left home she was driving her tan 1984 Toyota pickup truck; it's unclear whether the truck was ever located. It had the license plate number 737 BBS and the VIN number JT4RN5605E0067989.
At the time of her disappearance, Bodor was working at a construction site behind Sea World. She was declared legally dead in 2005. Her mother died in 2000 and her son died in 2014, but Bodor's older brother is still alive. Foul play is possible in her case.

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 2–5% of missing children in Europe. By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends. Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
