    My husband is convinced that Sylvia ended up in the landfill; he is sure of it. Me? Not so sure

And it was definitely a much slower pace compared to now.

    One of the greatest frustrations compounding the tragedy must have been is that this family was cut off from knowing more about the group she knew with her fiancé. A suitor in that group would be a complicated dynamic...

    I think of how many women absorbed themselves in their husband's life friends back then. It was a time before women's rise in the workplace, real opportunity, and independence came to fruition. The structure of life was very conservative for so many./QUOTE]

    This makes a lot of sense, unless she was extraordinarily independent, and not inclined to give up her own friends. In any event, I am certain that there were many, many of his friends that would have known and wondered about her when she disappeared. I just cannot believe that none of these people were curious about her. Why the radio silence? Doesn't this case seem rather unique in this sense to anybody else? I know it's been 42 years, but people do wonder about others that they used to know. Obviously, all of his friends know that he was engaged to her, and never married her. What did they think could have happened? Nobody wondered about her? I don't buy it
    Bbm: absolutely. I've looked up so many I used to know. It actually came in a wave of wondering, what happened to so and so, what about that ex, lol!

    I think that that wondering would be doubly true for those who knew she was missing.

    Thanks madamx. I believe we reviewed this uid a couple of threads back. The physicals don't match: dentals, height, bra size a definite no. Sylvia had no cavities, no dental work in 1975. She is of German/Polish descent - the ring initials didn't match any of our info.

    There are all kinds suitors... From the overt to the silent crush. Wonder if Sylvia saved her memories, diary, letters, Valentine's, pressed flowers, pictures. We know her brother posted the "broken, cut out pictures" on another website. Did Sylvia cut them out, or someone else?

    Things like an address book, I imagine, may have been in her purse. I remember the super tiny books from back then.

    I still keep coming back to the marina. That was in her neighborhood and the water, the beach, and jetties were a part of her every day life. Did she ever go out on a boat with friends growing up?

    If she did take the bus, how many blocks from bus stop to her house? Did neighbors know she was missing?

    I also keep coming back to the no publicity, while it might have made sense for a few days, something else silenced this family. Was there word on the street, anyway? I guess I wonder about how the story of her being missing traveled... When you start adding up potential groups in her sphere, the numbers could be quite sizable. Plus, Sylvia, with her light up the room glow, is memorable.

    This is not new ground I am bringing up, but in case anyone is out there who might be wondering about her, memory about life is important. Maybe someone will have the Aha moment we are hoping for...
    I think someone in Sylvia's family cut up the photos; It's my opinion that this happened after she disappeared, and I don't think Sylvia would have done it before she went out with her fiance the last night she went out with him. Who knows, though? Maybe she did do it, symbolically cutting herself out of pictures with him before breaking up with him?

    Bumping our girl back up, in the hope that somebody sees this and finds the courage to tell what they know about Sylvia's disappearance

    Just a guess but I think she cut herself out of those pictures .....feeling like you are no longer important like you don't exist like the things you want don't matter any more it's a part of depression I felt at one time that I no longer had a face when my husband had a bad accident that changed the course of our lives I felt I no longer had a personality.

    Me, too. EL knew something that we wish we knew, I think.

    I miss my mom... She was the most intuitive. She was the most knowing person I knew. Is it any different for EL? NO, this woman missed and cared for her daughter, her whole life. I'm sure there are diarys. So, what happened to her Sylvia? What happened to EL's Sylvia? What happened?

    Maybe what happened was a break up. And Sylvia's mom couldn't rescue her. She tried. She let LE slak in their lasafare search for her. If it were today, Sylvia would be on an alert, on the missing persons alert, published...

    I cry for Sylvia, because she was never published as missing back then when it counted most.

    How can we account for her 40 years later?

    I have wondered how is it possible I care about this beautiful woman, like I do...

    But somehow I do. Yeah, she's gorgeous in pics, and probably in person, too...
