Elizabeth Dorothy Funchess was last seen at her family’s San Jose, California residence. This incident occurred on September 6, 1977. A neighbor visited the residence that day and spoke to her mother, Diane Edith Funchess, who had just finished breast-feeding her.

Everything seemed normal at the time. And Diane told the neighbor about the family’s recent vacation to Florida.

The neighbor was the last person known to have seen Diane and her child. They disappeared from the residence later that day. They left all their belongings behind, including Diane’s eyeglasses and her car. Authorities discovered that the cord to their television set had been cut off with a sharp knife and taken away.

Nothing else was missing. There were no indications of a struggle and there was no ransom note. Investigators at the time believed Elizabeth and Diane had been taken so the baby could be sold for adoption.

Diane’s body was found in September 1981. But Elizabeth has never been located. Few details are available in her case.
