    The information shown indicates that Dixie Lee Arensen was last seen at the church. As her husband had last seen her at home, by whom was she seen at the church? As August 25th was a Sunday, you would tend to think at that hour there would probably have been others there at that time. Who? And did they hear anything (sounds of a struggle, etc.) or see anything (another car besides hers, etc.)?

    Why was she preparing the bulletin on Sunday? That is usually done earlier in the week.

    As my post attempts to point out, there is some unreported information here. It's possible she went to the church to complete the bulletin or perhaps correct an error in it. From the description of her clothing, it appears she was planning on attending a service there later that morning.

    Odd…But I found this:

    California Divorce Index:

    Dixie L Shaefer
    Jonathan Arensen
    Los Angeles City
    June 1970

    (A Jonathan E Arensen and a Dixie L Shaefer were married 22 June, 1968 in LOS ANGELES CITY.)

    http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/s...iv=1&ml_rpos=2

    An article that also mentions her father (Dr.Shaefer) here:

    Public Records for 1993:

    Dixie L Shaefer
    27 Oct 1949
    911 Indiana Ave, Anderson, IN, 46012-2319 (1993)

    I don't have a lot of time this evening but if anyone has an ancestry account…It seems as though she may not have disappeared. There is a divorce record for her (posted above) as well as one previous marriage and couple of marriages afterward.

    Father is Reverand Harry David Shaefer (b.1921 in India; d. 1998 Ventura, California). Mother Lillie Belle Shaefer (1927 Mississippi; d. 2007 Ventura, California). Brother David Leroy. (All on ancestry but the new Websleuths format does not seem to allow cut and paste like it did before. : ( )
