    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Wind was last seen on September 26, 1992 in North San Juan, CA, outside of a Mother Truckers store on San Juan Ridge when a family friend picked her up after a fight with her mother.
    Prior to moving into their San Juan Ridge house, the family lived in cars and a bus for years. In the month before the family moved into the house, Lilly had stayed at a friend's home in Penn Valley, and her mother was looking forward to the eighth-grader being able to attend high school.
    Lilly was romantically involved with a 29-year-old man at the time of her disappearance. Shortly after Lilly disappeared, her mother heard from the girl's friends and the man's associates that Lilly was pregnant.
    In the first five months after Lilly's disappearance, her mother received two collect calls that the operator said were from Lilly. Each time, no one spoke on the other line, and the call was disconnected.

    Long article with Mother of Lily.

    Six weeks ago, a man currently in a prison in Jackson, Mich., called the Nevada County Sheriff's Office with what he called information about the girl's remains.

    According to the inmate, he had been running a tattoo business in the northern United States when two drunken men came in and bragged that they had picked Lilly up off the streets and killed her.

    The same information was given to a small Southern California organization called Missing Children International, Inc. The organization was contacted two weeks ago by a woman who said her boyfriend was in the same prison and had talked to the inmate who had called the sheriff's office.

    "He claims he knows who killed her, where she is buried and what the weapon is," said Chris Melendez, the founder of MSI.
    Lily has been missing almost 18 years. Come home soon sweetie. Prayers for your Mother.

    Hmmm, it says that her parents are separated...
    Maybe her father came back to get her? I'm not saying that all missing people with divorced parents were abducted by their non-custodial one, but it happens a lot.
    Just a thought.

    I wonder if the collect calls were actually her? A lot of perps and their accomplices seem to enjoy calling families to mess with them.

    If this happened today, there could maybe be a recording left of what the caller's voice sounded like before (s)he hung up.
