Jennifer Lynn Fay

Last seen in Brockton, Massachusetts on November 14, 1989

Vital statistics: White female. Born on December 25, 1972. Blond hair, blue eyes. She has a scar over her eyebrow and her teeth are crowded. Last seen wearing a black silk jacket with an Iron Maiden patch, a purple blouse, blue jeans, and white sneakers. Was sixteen at the time.

Circumstances: Fay was last seen leaving her home. She was supposed to be baby-sitting, but instead went to a friend's. There was a party there and she left around nine PM. She has not been seen since. Classified as a Non-Family Abduction.

Theories: I think Jennifer ran away initially (she was a rebellious teen according to accounts) and became a victim of foul play at some later time. I am skeptical of reports that foul play happened the day of disappearance at the hands of an acquaintance because they have come long after the fact and with few details. In this case, her remains could be anywhere across the country, so a search of unidentifed victims around her age may lead us to Fay.
