Sixteen-year-old Brenda went missing from New York, New York around February or March of 1980. Her mother claimed to have filed a missing persons report with the police, but never did.
Brenda's mother was strangled to death by a male acquaintance a year after her daughter went missing.
Brenda's missing persons report wasn't discovered until 1994 when her sister filed a report at the time. She was a special education student at Curtis High School in 1980, but stopped attending and was expelled from the school as AWOL. There is a PINS (Person in Need of Supervision) warrant for Brenda in family court.
Brenda's parents suffered from alcoholism and she was possibly abused. Her case continues to be unsolved.
