    Cindy had fallen in with a rough crowd prior to her disappearance.
    The Winegars -- and Cindy especially -- had begun to get menacing, anonymous phone calls, and the family had gotten a new, unlisted phone number. After Cindy's disappearance the family got a final Cindy-related phone call from a man who did not identify himself. "If you want your daughter, she's tied up dead at the bottom of the Winooski River," he said, and he hung up. No evidence was found to indicate if foul play was involved or if she left voluntarily.

    That is so sad. I hope the psychic can help because that's probably their only hope by now.

    That last name is so rare, I've been startled every time I ever saw it. I almost married a woman named Winegar, and can't help but wonder if this missing girl was a distant relative of hers.

    Woman haunted by search for sister

    Published: Sunday, May 7, 2006
    By Ed Shamy
    Free Press Staff Writer

    Pat Duguie says she suspects her baby sister is dead, but let her talk and it's clear she hasn't fully convinced herself.

    Twenty-seven years of emotion play across Duguie's face. Anger, fear, grief and tears ultimately yield to wide-eyed hope.

    Maybe Cindy Winegar is alive somewhere. And if not, which seems to be the sad truth after so many years, maybe she didn't suffer when she died. For Pat Duguie, for anybody, that's a tragically slender, bleak thread on which to hang hope.

    Cindy was by far the youngest of six children -- 13 years younger than her next oldest sister -- raised by John and Mildred Winegar, a working-class couple in a working-class neighborhood of Burlington's New North End.

    Burlington, Vermont - May 1, 2008

    "And you can see down there where the house burned," says Pat Dughie.

    For Dughie-- this is a house full of bad memories.

    Her father drowned in the river outside the home 27 years ago.

    A couple of years later, her daughter was severely burned when the house went up in flames.

    And this is also the home that her 17-year-old sister Selinda vanished from 29-years ago.

    "There's always that wonder," she explains. "Is she safe? What is she doing? Does she have any kids? Is she dead? And did she suffer?"

    Alan Wineger is Selinda's brother.

    "It's very possible that she ran away. I don't know," he says.

    Selinda was last seen leaving the home on March 21, 1979 to visit a friend.

    Hello all. I am new to websleuths so bear with me if this seems far fetched but I believe this Jane Doe found in Nevada resembles Selinda "Cindy". Cindy's eye color is blue and the Janes Does are brown but it could be possible. They did rule out some girls, and Cindy is not listed as an exclusion. Does anyone else see it or am I crazy?

    Nevermind, there is no way its her due to the dental differences.
