Details at time of disappearance: Calabrese was last seen in Winter Garden, Florida on October 24, 1992. Her father dropped her off at east Plant Street and Hennis Road at 11:30 a.m. She told him she was going to clean a house and would call back later for a ride to the home they shared.
She never called, although a relative may have seen her in the 11th Street area at 5:00 p.m. that day. She has never been heard from again.
Although she worked as a prostitute to support her crack cocaine addiction and since her mid-teens she'd occasionally drop out of sight for up to weeks at a time, Calabrese did keep in touch with her family and would call her parents to let them know she was all right. They reported her missing on November 2, after they were unable to get in touch with her. Foul play is suspected in her case.
