    Darlene attended Southern High School and seemed to have few issues growing up until she fell in with the wrong crowd. Darlene married in Dec 1980 however the marriage ended within a years time. Darlene then moved to Hollywood, Florida and was living with Phil "Skip" Parselli a real estate broker and his family. The two had traveled to Durham, NC for the Thanksgiving Holiday staying with Darlene's parents. Helen and Skip decided to go visit Darlene's grandmother while in town, however they never made it.

    A few days later their rental car was found at South of the Boarder, a roadside Mexican theme attraction on I-95 near the North Carolina/South Carolina boarder. The car did not reveal any evidence of foul play, however one possible clue was a belt buckle with the Outlaws motorcycle gang's emblem was found inside the car.

    A missing persons report was filed by Darlene's family an MP was never located on Phil "Skip" Parselli.

    Darlene's father spent numerous years searching for his daughter hiring a Private Detective and following rumored leads that took him to Tennessee and Florida. Neither Darlene nor Skip have ever been located.

    *Darlene's personal items and clothing packed for her trip home for the holiday was left behind at her parents home.

    Still waiting for news of Helen Brother seeks help solving mystery of 1983 disappearance

    **Came upon Helen's case last year while searching for information on another case. Have contacted Durham LE with no response in regards to acquiring a photo of Darlene. Have also been searching HS yearbooks and anywhere else to find a photo if anyone is able to locate a photo kindly bring it on to this thread.

    There is another case that I'm researching that could possibly be connected or not be connected is just a matter of coincidence. It's a possibility I'm looking at once there is more hard fact validation I will post
