In 1990, 24-year-old Laurie Renee Lucas was seen with just such a wolf. Since Laurie parted with William James Bannister, she was never seen or heard from again by parents, acquaintances, neighbors or friends. She just vanished.
On Jan. 8, 1991, Lucas’ mother, Sandra Lucas, who lived in Iowa Falls, Iowa, called Aurora police and said she hadn’t heard from her daughter since June of 1990. According to an Aurora police report she was last seen with Bannister. Lucas, who was 5 feet, 7 inches and weighed 130 pounds, had brown hair and blue eyes and wore prescription glasses, according to a police report. (Much more at the link)
Lucas was reported missing to the Aurora Police Department on January 8, 1991. Her mother, Sandra Lucas reported Laurie missing via telephone from Iowa Falls, Iowa. According to Sandra, she had not heard from her daughter for at least six months prior to the report. Authorities have also been attempting to locate living relatives to obtain DNA reference samples for CODIS entry. http://doenetwork.org/cases/769dfco.html
24 year old Laurie Lucas was reported missing by her mother, Sandra Lucas. Sandra made a telephone report from Iowa Falls, Iowa. She last made contact with Laurie sometime in June of 1990. Laurie lived on the 13400 block of E. Colfax Avenue at the Weekly Motor Inn. Laurie was last seen with William Bannister, a suspected serial killer. Mr. Bannister advised law enforcement the last time he saw Laurie Lucas was in September or October of 1990. Mr. Bannister stated that Laurie left for Texas with a roofer named "Mike". Mr. Bannister has been unresponsive to follow-up interview requests. Anyone with additional information is asked to please contact the Aurora Police Department.

Bannister murdered his girlfriend in 1978 and served five years in prison for the crime. In 1986, April Cooper, his neighbor's six-year-old daughter, disappeared while in his care. In 1993, he was sentenced to sixteen years for attempted murder after he tried to strangle his son's girlfriend. Bannister was convicted of April's murder in 1998 and sentenced to life in prison without parole, but the child's body was never found. Authorities believe he may have harmed Lucas as well, but there is insufficient evidence to charge him and he now refused to speak to police about the case. Lucas's disappearance remains unsolved and foul play is suspected. Her mother is now deceased.
