    UT - Nancy Perry Baird, 23, East Layton, 1975

    I'm surprised there isn't a thread on this girl.

    Nancy Perry Baird

    Case Classification: Endangered Missing
    Missing Since: July 4, 1975
    Location Last Seen: East Layton, Davis County, Utah
    Physical Description

    ** Listed information is from the time of disappearance.
    Date of Birth: January 14, 1952
    Age at Time of Disappearance: 23 years old
    Race: White
    Gender: Female
    Height at Time of Disappearance: 5'3"
    Weight at Time of Disappearance: 100 lbs.
    Hair Color: Reddish-blonde, long and straight
    Eye Color: Hazel
    Alias(s) / Nickname(s): Nancy Perry
    Distinguishing Marks/Features: Small scars on the inside of each wrist.
    Dentals: Available
    Fingerprints: Available
    DNA: Pending
    Clothing & Personal Items

    Clothing: Blue shorts, blue halter top, a light blue pinstriped smock with a Fina Station symbol.
    Jewelry: Known to wear a small ruby ring on her pinky finger. This ring had a main ruby stone with two smaller rubies on each side and was set in gold.
    Additional Personal Items: Unknown
    Circumstances of Disappearance

    Nancy Baird was last seen working as a service station attendant at the Triangle Oil Company's Fina gas station at 200 South Highway 89 in East Layton, Utah. A police officer on patrol saw her at her place of employment less than 15 minutes before she was discovered missing at 5:30 P.M. Her purse and car were left at the station.

    Nancy had a four-year-old son and it is unlikely that she would have willingly left.
    The Charley Project also has an entry on her, and it says she may have been a victim of Ted Bundy, although he never confessed to her murder. In fact, I read somewhere that he denied it. Nevertheless, have these unidentified remains been eliminated or no? http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/751ufut.html

    This is right off Highway 89, just a few miles south of where Nancy was working.

    http://www.standard.net/Police-Fire/...man-skull.html

    Davis County Sheriff’s Sgt. DeeAnn Servey said a man who was hiking along North Mountain Road in Fruit Heights noticed something white in the bushes...

    As of 8 p.m., investigators were searching but had not found any other bones accompanying the skull.

    Servey said tests need to be done to determine if it is a human skull. “It appears it has been there awhile,” Servey said.

    This abduction seems a bit different from Bundy's MO; he liked to get them to his car and then hit them on the head. But it's possible he got her to go outside with him, especially if she pumped gas for customers. If this was a full-service station, simply pulling up to the pump would bring her out, then all he would have to do is get out of the car and abduct her.

    Feb 7th, 2015: Update on UID found exactly five miles south on the same highway as Nancy Baird disappeared from.
    I can see the place Nancy Baird disappeared from, from my living room window.
    We've lived in the neighborhood since 1973 (even before our home was built).
    I have followed the case and know that Bundy used his credit card at that location, at least once (per the East Layton police).
    Nancy Baird is THE most logical identity of these remains. At the time Nancy disappeared, there were no homes above that hill and there was easy access.
    KSL-TV reported that the remains "could have been there since the 1970s".

    Family waiting word on human skull found in Davis County

    SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 Utah) – The family of Nancy Baird have had their hopes dashed in the past.
    So after hearing about a human skull found in Davis County earlier this month, they are not getting overly excited until a positive identification is made.
    Baird disappeared on the 4th of July in 1975 never to be heard from again. Ted Bundy who was executed in 1989 was suspected of murdering her.
    She was declared dead in 1995 despite no trace of her remains.

    ...

    They will only say the bones are older than 10 years.

    She does not fit the profile, either physically or circumstantially, to be one of Ted Bundy's victims.

    Her disappearance is similar to Cheryl Scherer's, which happened about four years later:

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...er_cheryl.html

    Both were petite and redheaded; both worked at gas stations and disappeared on the job; both had an extremely small window of time in which to disappear.

    The only difference I can see(besides location) is that Cheryl's disappearance was accompanied by a robbery.

    Highly doubt Bundy did this. Where was Henry Lucas at this point in time?

    Bumping, missing for 40 years now. This was written last year. I also doubt Bundy was involved but once is name is associated with a crime (by investigators), it's difficult to ignore the possibility.

    Detectives take another look at woman's 4th of July disappearance
