Nancy Marie O'Sullivan (15) - South Holland IL, 1974
Missing Since: March 7, 1974 from South Holland, Illinois
Classification: Endangered Missing
Date Of Birth: January 28, 1959
Age: 15 years old
Height and Weight: 5'4, 115 pounds
Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian female. Brown hair, blue eyes.
Details of Disappearance
O'Sullivan was last seen in South Holland, Illinois on March 7, 1974. She had previously lived in that city, but moved with her parents and ten siblings to Homewood, Illinois in 1972. On the day of her disappearance, she visited three former neighbors in South Holland. A witness stated O'Sullivan walked to the end of his driveway and hitched a ride with a blue Cadillac. She had a history of running away from her family's residence prior to her disappearance. She was always apprehended or returned voluntarily to her home within a few days, but after her March 1974 disappearance, O'Sullivan has never been seen again. She may have tried to go to Texas after her 1974 disappearance.
O'Sullivan left her purse and makeup behind, which her loved ones say is uncharacteristic of her. One of the people she went to visit the day she vanished had a drug addiction and another had a reputation for being violent. Two of the individuals O'Sullivan visited on the day of her disappearance have since died; authorities have been unable to locate the third person.
For thirty years after she went missing, O'Sullivan was classified as a runaway. Investigators now believe she met with foul play, as otherwise it is unlikely that she would be gone so long without contacting any of her loved ones. Few details are available in her case.
