Laurie Lynn Partridge was a young woman who went missing after walking home from school in 1974. Foul play is suspected in her disappearance, which was initially treated as a runaway case.


It is possible that a green station wagon was seen following Laurie when she disappeared. Laurie and her 20-year-old fiance planned to select a ring on the day she vanished but he was never considered a suspect, although three others have been named.

Contents of her purse were found in a wooded area, two days after she disappeared, indicating foul play.
