    Tammy Sue Rothganger (15) - Eldon MO, 1984


    Missing Since: May 16, 1984 from Eldon, Missouri
    Classification: Non-Family Abduction
    Date of Birth: August 10, 1968
    Age: 15 years old
    Height and Weight: 5'7, 135 - 140 pounds
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian female. Sandy blonde to brown hair, brown eyes. Rothganger has a tattoo of the letter "R" on her left arm, and also a scar on her left arm. She has several moles on her cheeks and chin.
    Clothing/Jewelry Description: Unknown, but she usually wears a leather wristband and a necklace with an arrowhead pendant.

    Details of Disappearance

    Rothganger was last seen at Eldon High School at approximately 7:45 a.m. on May 16, 1984. The school is just across the street from her home in Eldon, Missouri. She was last seen getting into a blue Plymouth in front of the school building. She never attended classes that day and has never been heard from again. Her family reported her missing that afternoon.


    At the time of Rothganger's disappearance, her mother was dating Martin Priest. A photograph of him is posted below this case summary. Priest lived with Rothganger and her mother in May 1984. He is now serving a life sentence in a Kansas state prison for an unrelated murder; he robbed and shot a 15-year-old girl in 1984. Priest is the prime suspect in Rothganger's disappearance, but he has never been charged in connection with her case. Foul play is suspected in Rothganger's case, which remains unsolved.
