Left: Leslie, circa 1974; Right: Age-progressed to age 45 (circa 2006)
Missing since July 31, 1974 from Mesa, Maricopa County, Arizona.
Classification: Non-Family Abduction
Jackie was last seen walking with her older sister, Cynthia, on July 31, 1974.
They were headed to a friend's home, which was located three blocks away from their own residence in the Desert Sands Mobile Home Park in east Mesa.
They had just moved there a month earlier from Page, Arizona, so that their father, who was suffering from terminal cancer, could be closer to the hospital.
Both girls were last seen walking on Baseline Road near Power Road. They told their mother that they were scheduled to babysit, but she learned afterward that they planned to attend a party.
Cindy likely was meeting a boy her father had forbidden her to see. Teenagers who attended the party were questioned more than once. Stories conflicted. One teenager said the sisters did show up at the party; others said they didn't.
Neither Cynthia nor her sister have been heard from since.
In the weeks following the girls' disappearance, family members and sheriff's deputies searched orange groves and cotton fields. These fields have since been replaced by subdivisions, apartments, theaters and stores.
