    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Riffin was last seen on September 13, 1982 in New Mexico, where she was living at the time. At the time of her disappearance she was on a brief vacation in the mountains, from her job in a restaurant in Ruidoso, New Mexico.
    State police found her car locked, stuck in a ditch and abandoned on a roadside September 21, 1982, a short distance from Highway 3, between Mora and Tres Ritos in New Mexico. Inside were some clothing, painting materials and some paintings Riffin had done of the New Mexico landscape. The only thing missing from the vehicle was Riffin's purse. There was no evidence of foul play in the vehicle. A woman at a gas station ten miles from where Riffin's car was found believes she saw her shortly after her disappearance. According to the witness, Riffin appeared to be alone and requested assistance. She has not been seen since.
    Her bank account and credit cards have not been used since her disappearance.

    Her parents in Montclair, Essex County, New Jersey reported her disappearance to police; Montclair authorities are investigating Riffin's case although she lived in New Mexico and disappeared from there.

    Riffin was graduated from William and Mary College in Williamsburg, Virginia. She had been an anthropology major who had lived on and off at home since graduation. She had once worked as a volunteer in Peru. She had had a few articles published in Israel, where she had lived for a while, and she also wrote poetry.

    What sort of assistance did she request?
    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.
