A Witness

A man contacted authorities in 1993. He told them that he suspected his mentally disabled nephew had murdered Sarah in 1981. His nephew would have been a child at that time. The man also gave a report about his nephew’s father. His nephew’s father was deceased by 1993. The witness believed that he had buried her body to protect his son. A vacant lot was excavated later in the year. This was where authorities suspected Sarah may be buried. However, nothing was located. Sarah’s former babysitter had once lived in a residence where the lot was located.

In January 1985, it was three and a half years after Sarah vanished. Police thought they saw her picture in the apartment of David R. Collins. Collins has a long criminal record and uses many aliases. He was charged with kidnapping one teenager in California and sexually abusing several others in New Orleans, Louisiana. Twenty-five pictures of young girls were found in his apartment. Police published them in newspapers in hopes that the public could identify the people in them.

One of the subjects in the pictures was believed to be Sarah. But that individual was eventually identified as another person. One other photograph was thought of be of Nelida Del Valle. She was a nine-year-old who disappeared from Massachusetts in 1976. But this possibility was also ruled out. Collins is not believed to have been involved in either girl’s case. Police dug underneath an old garage on Noel Road, south of Joliet, in 2004. They were hoping to find Sarah’s remains. They did find some clothing. However, they could not find any evidence relating to Sarah’s case.

Some agencies may list February 21, 1981 as the date of Sarah’s disappearance.
