    Article about a new candy store in Frnaklin, TN. Author mentions CY Market, so it's not just some crazy typo! haha Website has a number, maybe I'll call them and see if I can get any info, it's Franklin based.
    Another reference to the CY Market here: http://www.williamsonherald.com/feat...a434ec890.html

    It sounds like it may no longer be in business.

    ETA: This Consignment store business page says they operate in what was previously the CY Market space: http://catmoon.wix.com/over-the-moon#!__meet-us

    I've read several articles that state CY market was located in (or near) the "grasslands" which is the area between Franklin and Green Hills, TN. That would have been a nearly 3 hour walk from Franklin, though. I know kids walked everywhere back then, but wouldn't a 3 hr. walk be way too long?

    Here's the streetview of where the CY Market was located (to give an idea of where Laurie was last seen): https://www.google.com/maps/place/21...!4d-86.8871639

    Maybe there is more than one area called "the Grasslands"? Based on the address I found above for the location of the former CY Market it was in Franklin. Google maps says that address is only 5 or 6 miles from what is the center of Franklin today: https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Fran...9!2d35.9965957

    Here is the Google earth view of the CY Market where Laurie was reportedly last seen walking: https://www.google.com/maps/place/21...!4d-86.8871639

    I wonder if they ever searched the woods behind that building?

    Oh awesome! I'm glad you have the location of where the market used to be. If I have the possible address of where laurie lived (and I could be wrong, I just found a woman who could be her mother and looked back at her address from 1978,) it would have been about a 20 minute walk.

    The vast amount of woods is troubling. That's A LOT of space. Franklin has a population of 70,612. That's pretty medium id say? I don't know if there would be people rummaging through the woods often, and if this case got as little attention as it seems, they may not have looked.

    I agree it seems likely LE wrote her off as a runaway and never looked.

    It's over 70,000 today but back in 1980 Franklin was only 12,407: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franklin,_Tennessee

    That's pretty small town, IMO, and probably had no resources to search for missing teens in the 1970's.

    That is pretty small. I'm sure her family hasn't forgotten about her, but it breaks my heart to know she's disappeared and it doesn't seem like anyone is looking. I wonder if franklin has a historical society, you'd think maybe for a town that small and a young girl gone missing there would be people that remembered it/ it made somewhat of an impact.

    I'll send them an email, see if there's anything of value they may know or have heard. Not sure if they still have newspapers, fliers or any info left

    It seems there are a couple Franklin local newspapers today:
    http://www.williamsonherald.com/
    https://franklinhomepage.com/

    I'm not sure if they were in existence back in 1978 but you could write to the papers and ask if they have anything about Laurie in their archives (be sure to include her alternate name spellings). The papers might also be willing to cover Laurie's story today as a local mystery and to bring interest in finding her.

    The Williamson Herald is a new newspaper, I haven't been able to figure out which is the paper that would have been around at the time and that the article about her would have been in (that the poster on another forum mentioned). If we can track down that newspaper article with the picture it'd be so helpful - even getting that photo added to her Namus profile.

    That's great that you contacted the historical society. I tried to join a group called 'If you grew up in Franklin TN...' on facebook but they won't accept my invite, I guess because my profile is obvious that I didn't grow up there! Maybe someone else could try? If you search 'CY market Franklin' on facebook there are a bunch of public posts of people reminiscing about their memories of it.

    Great work Motorunner! The historical society replied on their facebook (see above post by bfletcher82). Lots of interesting comments from locals too!
