Circumstances

Deborah Ann Quimby was last seen in Townsend, Massachusetts. This incident occurred on May 3, 1977. Deborah left a note for her parents. The note stated that she was going to ride her bicycle. She would ride it from their home in the 10 block of Smith Street. Then she would go to her grandparents’ campsite in on Vinton Pond Road in West Townsend. It was near Pearl Hill State Park, about four miles from her own home.

Deborah said she would return later that day. After her disappearance, police found an undelivered letter in Deborah’s locker. It was written to a friend and stated that Deborah was upset and wanted to talk to her. That note gave directions to her grandparents’ home.

A friend accompanied Deborah as far as Turnpike Road. It was located in the woods near her grandmother’s residence. Then the friend turned back while Deborah continued onward. She was last seen cresting a hill on Turnpike Road, westbound. She has never been heard from again. Deborah’s bicycle, a boy’s brown Takara or Schwinn 10-speed model, has never been recovered.

In May 2003 investigators searched Walker Pond for evidence relating to Deborah’s case. But they found nothing. The pond is about half a mile from where Deborah was last seen. Police searched again in June and July 2004. They found a piece of clothing, two buttons, and the remnants of two bicycles. They sent all of these items for testing in a forensics laboratory.

The bicycles were later both determined to be unrelated to Deborah’s case. And the fabric produced no leads either. An anonymous writer sent two letters. These told police to look in the pond. After a month, authorities stopped looking in the pond. But they stated that they plan to search in the area around it for clues in Deborah’s case.

There is speculation that Deborah was pregnant at the time of her disappearance. However, there is no evidence to support this theory. Deborah’s parents believe she was going to a specific destination to meet someone. She was not going to meet her grandparents. And possibly she ran into foul play afterwards.

Deborah’s family still lives in the area and hopes she may yet be found. Deborah was a student at Spaulding Memorial School at the time of her disappearance. Her case remains unsolved. Some agencies classify it as a non-family abduction.

Appeal

Deborah Ann Quimby has been missing for 42 years. After all this time, there is little evidence as to what could have happened to her. Police have no suspects or even any person of interest. As there was no known male in her life, how could she have been pregnant at the time? This is a case without leads but with enough theories. Family members are still alive and need answers. Something happened to Deborah; she dis not just vanish.

Did someone approach Deborah, groom her, and lure her to vanish in order to be in their company? Do you have any information concerning the whereabouts of Deborah Ann Quimby? Do you have any information concerning the person (s) who may be involved in her disappearance?
