Ann has freckles on her cheeks and nose.

Ann was last seen April 15, 1978 in Pioneer Park in Corvallis, Oregon. She disappeared while participating in Corvallis' March of Dimes walk-a-thon. The course took walkers along a bike path by the Marys River. At about 1:00 pm, Ann, complaining that her foot hurt, told her two friends to go on without her; she would head to a checkpoint at Gill Coliseum. She was last seen on the path near the Pioneer Park ball field, just across Highway 34 from the coliseum.

At 5:15 pm, Ann's parents reported her missing after she failed to return home. Witnesses described seeing a red pickup pulling a trailer near the area where Ann was last seen. A suspect and known sex offender was brought in and questioned by police, but he committed suicide a week later, stalling the investigation.
