Margaret Ellen Fox (14) - Burlington NJ, 1974
Missing Since: June 24, 1974 from Burlington, New Jersey
Classification: Endangered Missing
Date Of Birth: February 4, 1960
Age: 14 years old
Height and Weight: 5'2 - 5'3, 105 pounds
Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian female. Brown hair, blue eyes. Fox has freckles. At the time of her disappearance, two of her top front right teeth were missing.
Clothing/Jewelry Description: A light blue floral-patterned blouse which was squared at the top and flared at the waist, a black and white checkered waist-length jacket, maroon jeans with a yellow patch on one knee, brown sandals, a gold necklace with flowers and a blue stone on it and a gold charm bracelet with a blue stone.
Details of Disappearance
Fox was last seen in Burlington, New Jersey on June 24, 1974. She was planning to go to High and west Broad Streets in Mount Holly, New Jersey to have an interview with a man who called himself John Marshall. Fox's younger sister accompanied her to the bus stop and saw her on. Witnesses reported seeing her after she got off the bus in Mount Holly, but she has never been heard from again.
Fox had advertised for a baby-sitting job, and Marshall responded to the ad on June 19. He told her he needed a babysitter for the following weekend, but he postponed meeting her several times. Finally he said he would meet her in a red Volkswagen. He gave Fox a telephone number to reach him; the number was traced to a public phone booth at a supermarket in Lumberton, New Jersey.
Fox has never been heard from again. Several other parents in the area complained that someone had attempted to lure their daughters with fake job offers. A suspect's 1976 confession to involvement in her disappearance was widely publicized, but turned out to be a hoax.
Fox took piano lessons in 1974 and she liked to ride horses. She graduted from St. Paul's Grammar School in Burlington two weeks before she vanished. Her case remains unsolved.
