Update... Lori Jean Lloyd is still missing, but her sister Joni hasn't given up on finding her. She was mistakenly reported to have been found in October 2004. The report was false and she is still missing. Lori Jean’s case remains unsolved.
Lloyd was babysitting with a friend on February 11, 1976 in her hometown of Kettering, Ohio. Her mother dropped off a meal for Lloyd, her friend and the child they were watching during the evening hours. Lloyd thanked her and gave no indication anything was amiss at the time. It was the last time Lloyd's mother saw her daughter. Her mother returned to the residence sometime after midnight and noticed Lloyd was missing. Lloyd's friend and the child were asleep; when she awoke, she told Lloyd's mother that Lloyd had walked to a convenience store three blocks away to purchase cigarettes. The employee at the business stated that Lloyd had never arrived at the store that night. She has not been seen again. Her mother searched for in the area with her car, but without success.
