    NY - Cynthia Constantine, 15, Oakdale, 11 July 1969



    Cynthia Dawn Constantine

    Endangered Missing from Oakdale, New York since July 11, 1969

    Age: 15 -- Height: 5'3" -- Weight: 117 lbs -- Hair Color: Blonde -- Eye Color: Blue

    Cynthia has a mole on her throat and a discolored front tooth. She may wear eyeglasses.


    Cynthia was last seen in Oakdale, New York on July 11, 1969. She took her dog for a walk along the railroad tracks. The dog later returned home without her. She has never been heard from again.

    --------------------------------------

    I took the above information from a profile featured on this site.

    This case has a special place in my heart because I know the area she was last seen in very well. Apparently she left home and headed west on the Montauk branch train tracks of the LIRR. She was last seen near the Montauk Highway overpass. Back in 1969 this area was undeveloped but not quite rural.

    I believe her brother (who's name I don't know) is still looking for her.

    I came across her case by chance. Almost 20 years ago a friend of mine was approached by a transient in the area of Cynthia's disappearance and was told how back in the early 70's (1969 isn't too far off) a young girl had been abducted and murdered, left in the woods and never found. For 20 years my friend sat on this story, thinking it to be the rambling of a homeless man (which it may be) but what if it wasn't?

    Does anyone know anything further about this case?

    Thanks for posting, OggLurker.

    Here is Cynthia's Charley Project page, but it doesn't have any additional information: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...e_cynthia.html

    Not a problem SWMNBN,

    I haven't had much luck finding out anything further that what is already on the various MP sites. I will be taking a trip to my local library to go through their microfilm collection to gather any newspaper articles that may have been written. This should have been a big story locally when it happened.

    I am also going to be going back to the location she was last seen and post some photographs from the area.

    I am a local Licensed Private Investigator. several years ago a friend mentioned this case to me but shortly after (1988) left the state and I wasn't able to reconnect with him until 2009. The case was always on my mind and in 2008~2009 I couldn't stop thinking about it. When I finally re established communication with my friend he's aid that he was also thinking about this case constantly. He was a local and filled me in on the whole cast of characters, including who he thought committed the crime concerning this girl. I spoke to some of her near peers so to speak. I interviewed people who were geographically near the railroad tracks and came up with a person of interest who had not only a place of business o trace. very near where th abduction may have happened but also of being a sexual predator and part of an illegal (at the time) abortion ring. A person who purchased the building formerly ownedprove anything by my person of interest had found abortion tools and pornography hidden in the walls! This person moved to MEXICO and was difficult to trace howevere last October, and here comes the tragic part,caught up with him THE DAY OF HIS FUNERAL...I knew of course that I couldn't prove anything 31 years later but I just wanted to have the pleasure of alluding to the Constantine girl and seeing his reaction. I will not name this POS for obvious reasons. He actually may be innocent and out of respect to his family I never will. I do get some satisfaction however to know that if there is a hell he's burning in it

    Slightly more information at Charley Project for Cynthia's case, but unfortunately, not the kind of details that would help too much in the investigation. Charlie Project most of the time, has more information than Doe Network.

    Friend

    I was a friend of Cynthia's. We were in the same class at Connetquot HS and took the same bus. Her parents owned the bike shop in town, opposite the Oakdale train tracks. Her brother's name is William. The body that was found at Hecksher in 1978 was not Cynthia's, although the community had hoped it would be for the sake of closure for the family. Oddly, if I remember correctly, the body turned out to be that of Dean Martin's niece.

    Thank you so much for sharing. Does the family still live in Oakdale? Have you kept in touch with any of them? I wonder if her brother William would ever come to websleuths.

    I am so sorry for the loss of your friend.

    Cynthia's mother passed away this week. I hope she is able to rest in peace after 45 years of wondering what happened to her little girl.
