Elsa Janell Wind
Missing since September 26, 1992 from North San Juan, Nevada County, California.
Classification: Endangered Missing
Circumstances of Disappearance
Wind was last seen on September 26, 1992 in North San Juan, CA, outside of a Mother Truckers store on San Juan Ridge when a family friend picked her up after a fight with her mother.
Prior to moving into their San Juan Ridge house, the family lived in cars and a bus for years. In the month before the family moved into the house, Lilly had stayed at a friend's home in Penn Valley, and her mother was looking forward to the eighth-grader being able to attend high school.
Lilly was romantically involved with a 29-year-old man at the time of her disappearance. Shortly after Lilly disappeared, her mother heard from the girl's friends and the man's associates that Lilly was pregnant.
In the first five months after Lilly's disappearance, her mother received two collect calls that the operator said were from Lilly. Each time, no one spoke on the other line, and the call was disconnected.
