Christine Marie Eastin
Missing since January 18, 1971 from Hayward, Alameda County, California.
Circumstances of Disappearance
Eastin borrowed her former boyfriend's car, a 1969 Ford Maverick, during the evening hours of January 18, 1971 in Hayward, California. She planned to take a female friend shopping and told her ex-boyfriend that she would wash his vehicle before returning it to him later in the night. Eastin purchased a pair of boots while shopping, then dropped her friend off at her friend's home before proceeding to Charlie's Car Wash on Mission Boulevard in Hayward. The car wash was a self-service operation and Eastin cleaned the vehicle by hand.
The car was found abandoned at the wash in the early morning hours of January 19. The vehicle was locked and it was obvious that Eastin had completed washing the entire surface before disappearing. Papers which were originally located inside the Maverick were found strewn on the pavement outside the driver's side door. There was no sign of Eastin. She left all of her personal belongings at her home and had no travel plans. She has never been seen nor heard from again.
