Details at time of disappearance: Durkin was last seen in Hayden, Idaho on December 20, 2004. She disappeared shortly after being released from jail and has never been heard from again. Her life had been troubled, and she had been in jail just prior to her disappearance, but her family stated she was close to them and adored her grandchildren.
She was not reported as a missing person until 2007, when her daughter informed police she had not heard from Durkin in over two years. Her vehicle was found abandoned in Spokane, Washington and sold at auction some time after she went missing. There were reports that she was living as a transient in the Spokane area, but this was never confirmed.
Authorities have checked all available databases, but they have not found any indication of Durkin's whereabouts since her December 2004 disappearance. Her case remains unsolved.
