    I always notice this case since she has the same name as my mother-in-law. Some websites mention that she may have run away with a boyfriend. Doesn't anyone know who the boyfriend was or where he is now? If she was dating a boy then surely her family or at least a close friend knew who he was. Looks like LE could check into what became of the boyfriend.

    My mother lived in Grand Prairie for several years when she was growing up, until she quit school and ran away to California in 1972. I mentioned to her that I had joined this site and on a long shot, I asked her if she knew Joyce Brewer. She thought she did know her, on the periphery. Joyce would have been about three years older than her. My mother said that she had a friend named Jack (she called him Jackie) Brewer, and that his sister was named Joyce. She was sure they were the same person. She said she never knew that Joyce had been reported missing, or that she had run away from home. Anyways, I know I didn't really contribute anything "new", but maybe it will renew some interest in the thread.

    The part about the family believing she ran away with the boyfriend is the strangest part of this story, to me anyway. Did the family know who the boyfriend was? Is he missing? I would think in the 70s you would have to be at least 16 to get married so even if she ran away with an older boyfriend I doubt she could have married without a parent signing for permission. Does anybody know? Would you be able to get married younger than 16 if you were pregnant?

    My grandmother had to sign permission for my mother to get married at 16 in Texas in 1975 (and she wasn't pregnant), so I'm guessing yes, she would have had to have had a parent or legal guardian sign for her, pregnant or not. I do believe you could get married younger than 16, but again, only with parental permission.

    They don't know who the new boy she was seeing was.

    She didn't have a brother named Jack. Also, the family says that they never learned the the name of the new boy she was seeing and supposedly ran off with. She left on a bus headed for Oklahoma, but was never seen getting off the bus there. The person at the bus station who sold her the ticket remembered her buying the ticket, but did not have any information on a male who may have been traveling with her.

    Her sister said that these pictures found in Rodney Alcala's locker were not her.

    I wonder if she had a driver's license or social security number? If she did not, and she really did run off with someone, maybe she married him and just can't be traced under the new name. It's possible she is still alive somewhere. Did the sister say whether Joyce would have gone away and never contacted anyone again? Was there anything going on at home that would have made her want to leave?

    Her sister said to me that there would be no way, if she was still alive, that she would not have at least contacted her brother, as they were extremely close. That being said, there were indeed issues at home, as in most families with teens. The events leading up to her running off, in fact, could have prompted her to break off all ties with her family. The only thing that really bothers me about that is, once we grow up a little and start having our own families, the need to share our lives with them supercedes all petty, childish acts of our past...usually. The problems at home were normal problems, though, you know...not heinous acts of child abuse or sexual abuse...that's what I don't understand.

    JC Brewer looks like she could be a twin to a woman who lives in my town. Her son goes to school with my kids. Makes me wonder if her mom could be JCB. I don't dare ask her but I know her maiden name. I'd rather not post it here for all to see because I could be wrong. Grand Prairie is only a couple of counties away from where I live. Is there someone I could give the name to in private and let them take it from there?
