Rachanda Lea Pickle
Missing since July 10, 1990 from Sweet Home, Linn County, Oregon.
Classification: Endangered Missing
Circumstances of Disappearance
Pickle was last seen at her stepfather's home at the Oregon Highway Department maintenance station in Santiam, on July 10, 1990. Her mother was at work at the time of her disappearance.
Pickle's stepfather said he last saw her when he stopped by his home on a break from work. He found the girl lounging about in her pajamas and asked if she'd like to go with him to his job. She declined and was never seen again.
Foul play is suspected and the prime suspect in her disappearance is her stepfather who is currently serving a life-sentence for the 1978 Christmas Eve slaying of Kaye Turner.
