    IN - Sandra Powell, 16, South Bend, 11 March 1987

    Definitely an odd one.

    I think the friend Sandra was last seen with probably has more information that she has admitted. I don't know if I buy her "not wanting to eavesdrop on the phone conversation" story.

    I can't imagine how difficult it must have been for Sandra's family to view those X-rated films looking for her. Although I find the possible Soul Train sighting somewhat interesting, and the fact that no one was apparently able to obtain a copy of the episode intriguing, I believe that it was a case of mistaken idnetity as that tip came in ten years after Sandra vanished. I really don't think she and her unborn baby lived much longer after she was last seen.

    An article from 2007:

    March 26. 2007 6:59AM

    Twenty years and still waiting
    Mother holds out hope for daughter who went missing in 1987.

    SOUTH BEND -- Frances McCoy still hopes that one day her daughter will walk through her door, throw her arms around her and say, "Mom, I'm home."

    But she realizes it may never happen.

    It's been 20 years this month that Sandra Powell, then 16, was taken from her world. Why or how, McCoy doesn't know for sure.

    She may never know. And with each passing year, she realizes the chances of seeing her daughter again grow more remote.

    "I still think about her all the time," McCoy said.

    Intriguing indeed. Reading about what the mother's gone through made me sad. Imagine watching to see if your daughter shows up in a porn movie, or having to look at pictures of murdered women, hoping she isn't one of them?? The friend does sound like she knows something more.....

    This case is indeed strange, and so little info out there on it. Wish they could have followed up more on the soul train sighting...
