    PA - Agnes Ann Young, 43, Long Branch, 1986


    Missing since approximately 1986 from Long Branch, Washington County, Pennsylvania
    Classification: Endangered Missing

    • Date of Birth: about 1943
    • Age at Time of Disappearance: 43 years old
    • Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: Est. 5'5"; Est 120 lbs.
    • Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Brown hair; brown eyes.
    • Medical: Mental health records indicated Young attempted suicide three times.

    Young was last seen in Long Branch, Pennsylvania around 1986.

    On May 8, 2002 a special agent of the U.S. Office of the Inspector General, contacted state police at the Belle Vernon barracks, and learned that that Agnes Young had not been seen by anyone for at least 10 years. However, her Social Security checks had been cashed on a monthly basis from 1991 to September 2001. He spoke with the woman's relatives and friends, but he could not find anyone who had seen her in a decade.

    Her husband never filed a missing persons report, but someone did file a missing persons report on October 1, 1986.

    Social Security officials terminated Agnes Young's benefits and still attempted to contact her. Agnes Young's sister was told by Agnes' husband that Agnes was moved to a mental institution in upstate New York, and she had not seen Agnes in 10 years. Agnes Young's brother last saw his sister in 1985. The husband told him Agnes Young was unavailable when he attempted to visit her. Agnes's sister-in-law was told Agnes Young was transferred to New York after the mental institution in Pittsburgh burned down.

    Police could not find records of recent residence for Agnes Young in mental institutions in Ohio, Pennsylvania nor New York. However, mental health records indicated Agnes Young attempted suicide three times. Her name also was absent from records at the Bureau of Vital Statistics in New Castle.

    I wonder what her injuries were and if knowing would be any help in identifying her?

    She was recently added to NamUs. The profile lists her date last seen as October 16, 1986. However, the circumstances state that she was last seen sometime in 1986. It's odd how they don't know who reported her missing but they know it wasn't her husband.

    I'm assuming she lived a secluded life with her husband, which is why there isn't a more specific date to when she was last seen. Long Branch has a small population size.

    If he did murder Agnes in 1986, I really find it hard to believe that there was no serious suspicion raised until 15 years later. Maybe others tried to get the authorities involved but they just didn't have enough evidence to launch an investigation.
