Circumstances

Veronica Jill Blumhorst was last seen leaving her place of employment. She worked at the Super Value grocery store. This incident occurred in Mendota, Illinois, at 1:07 A.M. September 20, 1990. She was supposed to the night shift for the first time in weeks; she’d taken time off work because she was recovering from an illness. She still felt sick and decided to leave work early and go home to sleep. She has never been heard from again.

Veronica’s blue Chevrolet Corsica was found parked in her garage at her home. It was located four blocks away. That incident occurred at 7:30 A.N. The garage door was closed and there was no sign of her at the scene. At the time of her disappearance, she resided with her parents and younger brother in the 1200 block of Monroe Street. She was supposed to give her brother a ride to school that morning, and when he realized he was gone he told their father, Paul, and drove to school in his own car.

Paul was initially not concerned because he assumed Veronica had decided to have breakfast with Jeff Veverka, her boyfriend of five months. At 10:30 a.m., however, Veverka called and Paul realized they weren’t together. He checked with his oldest daughter, Carolyn, who lived in a nearby town. Carolyn said her sister wasn’t with her either. That afternoon, Veverka reported her missing. An extensive search of the area turned up no sign of Veronica. Dogs traced her scent from her family’s garage to a nearby alley, then lost the trail.

Police interviewed Veverka on September 23. He’d been injured in a prior motorcycle accident and had problems with his memory as a result, and he wasn’t sure what had happened on the night of Veronica’s disappearance. He said he thought she might have called him at 9:30 p.m. on September 19 and talked about going to a doctor the next day because she was pregnant. NOTE: EVEN A POSSIBLE PREGNANCY IS UNVERIFIED BY RESEARCH

Veverka said it was possible he’d picked up Veronica that night. He argued with her and pushed her. And he stated that she got “hurt real bad.” Authorities didn’t take his statements seriously, however, because of his neurological problems.

Investigators do not believe Veronica left of her own accord, as she left behind all her clothing and her vehicle. She had no credit cards and her bank balance was only $4 when she disappeared. Authorities theorize that, after parking her car at her home, Veronica got into another vehicle with someone she knew.

A year after her disappearance, investigators searched Veverka’s father’s residence. Vevreka now maintains his innocence in her case and hasn’t faced any charges relating to it, and no evidence was located during the search.

Veronica is described as a shy, retiring young woman. She was carrying less than $10 in cash on the night of her disappearance. Her work smock, purse and driver’s license were found in her car, but her boyfriend’s class ring and a video she’d rented were never recovered. Her case remains unsolved.

Appeal

Veronica Jill Blumhorst has been missing for 29 years. My research has not verified even a possible pregnancy at the time of her disappearance. I have not seen anything on the multiple sources that her family has put up for her. However, it is well-documented that Veronica is missing under suspicious circumstances. What happened to this missing woman when she left her place of employment early that day?
