OR - Suzanne Rae Justis, 23, Eugene, 5 Nov 1973
I did a little research to find photos of Suzanne Rae Justis, who is listed in NamUs with a no-photo casefile.
I found her maiden name was Seay via this obituary for her mother Doris Seay, who died on March 12, 2012.
A daughter, Suzanne Ray Justis, died previously.
I found three photos of Sue Seay (listed as Suzanne in the index) in the 1968 North Eugene (OR) HS yearbook. She disappeared in 1973 (i.e., 5-6 years after the photos were taken).
The date indicated in the Circumstances section (November 05, 1989) appears to be incorrect. The Missing Person report was filed prior to that date (on February 14, 1989), and the MP report bears a 1989 casefile number (See “Police Information” Section). When her NamUs MP casefile was created, it indicated a 1989 Date LKA, but it was changed to November 05, 1973. So it is likely that if they bothered to change the "Date LKA", it is now correct.
I wonder if she is a Ted Bundy victim. Another Eugene OR resident, Vicki Hollar, who was a probable Bundy victim disappeared a month-and-a-half earlier. Suzanne doesn't have the look of a typical Bundy victim. Bundy preferred women with long hair. But I suppose he wouldn't have passed up the opportunity if someone who didn't fit the profile presented herself as an easy target.

Thanks so much for finding the photos of her. I had been looking at her listing for a long time thinking that she might be a few different UIDs, but I really don't think that Suzanne Justis is any of the unidentified women. The circumstances of her disappearance on NamUs still have, what I assume is, an error about the date.
Called her mother on 11/5/1989 from Portland, OR and said she would be back in Eugene the following day to pick up her son from school. She has not been heard from since.

She is now on Charley Project and it states that she had long hair at the time of her disappearance and did not have the hairstyle shown in the photos. I would be surprised if she was not a Bundy victim, considering the time period and location. The Charley Project states she planned to travel to Eugene Oregon the next day, probably by hitchiking.

I'm new to the thread,
Yes CarlK90245, Investigators have looked Into the possibility that Suzanne was a victim of Bundy the reason I know Is because of this article;
It also mentions Vicki Hollar and Rita Jolly, as well as other chicks that vanished from the area.

On the day Suzanne vanished, Bundy was buying gas in Seattle, according to this website. https://web.archive.org/web/20060621...dbundy.com.pdf
However, the time is unavailable and it is possible that he picked her up the next day while she was hitch-hiking.
