Details of DisappearanceCorley was last seen at her family's residence in a public housing project on Airport Highway in Birmingham, Alabama during the evening hours of August 12, 1980. Her mother awoke at approximately 4:30 a.m. on August 13 and discovered the doors to their apartment were open. Chairs had been pushed back from the living room table and a soft drink bottle had been overturned as well. Corley's sandals, which were new and tan-colored with a gold emblem, were near the couch where she had placed them the night before. There was no sign of her inside the residence. She has never been seen again.
Corley had been abducted and raped by a group of men in July 1980, one month prior to the time she was last seen. The three-hour attack had taken place near Lake Purdy in Alabama. The men had arrived at Corley's family's residence the week before she disappeared, but they were not permitted inside. It is not known if the previous attack is related to Corley's disappearance. Authorities have continued to search for Corley since 1980. A small lake near Palmdale, Alabama was canvassed in 1998 after a psychic claimed there was evidence connected to Corley's case buried in that vicinity. The search did not produce any results. Corley's mother has been the victim of many individuals attempting to cash in on her daughter's disappearance throughout the years. Various people have claimed they would reveal Corley's whereabouts if a monetary amount was paid. Corley's mother believes that her daughter was sexually assaulted and murdered shortly after her disappearance. Her case remains unsolved. Foul play is suspected in Corley's case.
