    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Mooney was last seen in Mabank, Texas in the Fall of 1961. One day in the Fall of 1961, Avis Mooney's husband told his two children that he had come home from work that day to discover a note from their mother Avis saying that she had left him. Avis and her husband had a bad marriage that involved a lot of arguing and physical fighting.

    In the 43 years since Avis' disappearance none of her family has heard a word from her, except for a letter she wrote to her mother when she very first disappeared. Her mother always questioned whether Avis had actually written the letter.

    There was a possible sighting of Mooney in Hughes Springs, Texas in the early 1970s, but this has not been confirmed.

    "In the years since Avis' disappearance none of her family has heard a word from her, except for a letter she wrote to her mother when she very first disappeared."

    Would be nice to see the letter and compared it to other handwriting of hers. She would be 89 years old, she probably died when she disappeared.

    From that charleyproject link:

    Mooney's family has not heard from her since around the time she disappeared, when her mother got
    a letter from her. Her mother is not sure Mooney actually wrote the letter, however;
    she thinks the handwriting resembles her son-in-law's more than her daughter's.
    I wonder if her children ever wondered.....?
    We are here to help. I will do my best to not cause any hindrance, in any manner.
    I will at times, "think out loud." I have done this since I can remember.
    I will share my opinions. Thoughts. Insights. And I encourage everyone else to do the same.
    Let's find them, and bring them home!

    I'm not sure if I'm mixing up things with this case, but I thought I read a Jane Doe once that had no Uterus.
