    Sylvia Lourdes Standley walked out of Stanislaus County Women's Facility on Oakdale Road on June 3, 1986, after serving a two-week sentence for a drug violation. She called her family to let them know she would be home later in the day, that she would catch a ride to her Modesto home with her new boyfriend. No one in her family had ever met her new boyfriend and didn't know his name, or anything about him. She was last seen getting into a green or blue truck. She never returned home.

    When Standley went to jail, she left her 8-month old infant daughter with her mother. Some sources list May 29, 1986 as her missing date.
