Deborah Hohenshilt Missing Since February 13, 1988

with 4 comments

Deborah Hohenshilt, a 26-year-old saleswoman, left her part-time job at Fisherman’s Wharf Restaurant in Ponce Inlet and returned to her apartment in Daytona Beach, where she later spoke to someone by phone.  That phone call would be the last anybody heard from Hohenshilt.  Her employer reported her missing when she didn’t show up for work.

Investigators found only her cats at her Tanglewood apartment. Police found her car near Ellsworth and Bethune streets, less than a mile from her apartment. Neighbors said it had been there since Sunday, the day after Hohenshilt was last seen. Investigators said an examination of her apartment resulted in clues that indicate she did not leave of her own free will. “It really looks suspicious now,” said Cpl. Mike Kearney, just a week after her disappearance. “You could tell from her apartment that she intended to come back soon.”

radKIDS program in Saratoga Springs

leave a comment »

BALLSTON SPA — The parents of a Saratoga County teen who vanished without a trace more than a dozen years ago are the catalysts behind a five-week program that will teach the members of Girl Scout Troup 3283 the skills needed to prevent them from becoming victims of predatory violence.

Based on the nationally accredited radKIDS curriculum, the series — which kicks off today in Saratoga Springs — will culminate on Jan. 30 with a graduation exercise that will include what Doug Lyall, of Ballston Spa, calls “dynamic live-action demonstrations of the skills needed to escape danger and abduction.”

Suzanne Lyall was last seen March 2, 1998 getting off a bus at the University of Albany campus.  Her parents, Doug and Mary Lyall, have been advocates of missing persons and established The Center for Hope.
