    Details of Disappearance
    Coughlin was last seen in Youngstown, Ohio on December 27, 1974, when she supposedly went to the European Health Spa on Boardman-Canfield Road. She had plans to meet her boyfriend at his home on Indianola Avenue later that night, but never arrived and has never been heard from again. The same day she disappearance, Coughlin wrote a check for her latest life insurance premium. She didn't take any money from her bank accounts, and nothing was missing from her home on Ohio Avenue. Her 1968 Ford with the license plate number H4482G vanished with her, however. Coughlin's niece doesn't believe she was ever at the spa that day. She claims the signature on the sign-in sheet doesn't match Coughlin's and nobody actually saw her at the facility.

    Coughlin lived in 1400 block of Ohio Avenue at the time of her disappearance and was an aspiring actress; she was majoring in theater at Youngstown State University and performed at the Youngstown Playhouse. She was declared legally dead in 1985. Authorities theorize she was robbed and murdered and her car, with the body inside, was disposed of in a quarry in Pennsylvania. Few details are available in her case.
