Authorities have been searching for missing child Sondra Kay Ramber for over 30 years. AMW probably briefly profiled her on the Oct 10, 1998 episode when they were airing a story about the mostly unresolved I-45 corridor serial killings (more information below).
On October 26, 1983, 14-year old Sondra Ramber was last seen at her Santa Fe, Texas home. Eventually Sondra was determined to be missing after it was discovered that the door to the house was open, biscuits were baking in the oven and her purse and coat were left behind. Her father reported her missing the following morning. Investigators tended to believe that she ran away, although leaving her purse and coat behind would make this rather unlikely.
This case may or may not be related to the disappearances and murders of dozens of young women and girls who vanished from towns and cities along or near the Interstate 45 freeway from Houston to Galveston, Texas from 1971 to 1997. A different serial killer was probably responsible for several murders in the early 70s but the killings only resumed in the early 80s. More information is available in the Calder Road Serial Killer thread.
Thoughts? What I'm curious about is how Sondra's abductor actually managed to abduct her. The door to her house being open makes me wonder if she was stalked, possibly walking from school or something like that. Was she approached by someone claiming to be a door-to-door salesman or someone claiming that he needed directions? And was her killer responsible for any other disappearances?
