St. Louis
Deborah Lois Dean was on her way home by Greyhound bus to Tucson, Arizona, from Pennsylvania, where she had been visiting a friend. She definitely made it as far as St. Louis, Missouri, where she called and talked with a family member in Tucson. Her family believes she then went on by Greyhound bus to Tulsa, Oklahoma, and then on to Oklahoma City, possibly by bus. She was to have been picked up by family in Phoenix, Arizona, but never arrived. Her single piece of luggage went on through to Los Angeles and was sent back to her family. Her purse was found at a truck-stop cafe outside St. Louis on the Greyhound route, was never claimed and was then mailed in August 1985 to her address in Tucson, the address where she was living with her family. Deborah wears prescription contacts and/or prescription eyeglasses. These items were not found in either her luggage or her purse.
