Details of Disappearance
DeBruhl was last seen at her residence in Catawba, South Carolina on June 29, 1977. She mowed her lawn and then went inside to make some iced tea. She told her father he had been called in to go to work, and he left just after 11:00 a.m. DeBruhl's mother, who worked the night shift, was asleep at the time. She woke up at about noon and her daughter was gone. DeBruhl has never been heard from again. A pot of iced tea and a glass were later found undisturbed in the house, the television had been turned on, and DeBruhl's rubber flip-flops were on the front lawn. None of her clothes or other belongings were missing.
DeBruhl's grandmother lived near the family's home in 1977. She stated that on the morning DeBruhl went missing, she saw a late model blue and white or green and white Jeep-type vehicle drive up to the DeBruhl residence and stop by the front door. A man got out and stood on the front porch; he appeared to be talking to someone through the screen door. The vehicle left, but returned ten or fifteen minutes later. DeBruhl's grandmother did not hear any suspicious noises and did not see her granddaughter get inside the car. The man driving it has never been identified and it is unclear whether he has any connection to DeBruhl's case. He is described as Caucasian. of medium height and build, wearing a light-colored shirt and pants.
DeBruhl is described as shy and deeply religious; she was a member of the Providence Baptist Church and sang in the choir. She graduated from Castle Heights Junior High School prior to her disappearance and was looking forward to attending Rock Hill High School in the fall of 1977. Her family stated she was well-behaved prior to her disappearance, had no boyfriends and always kept her mother informed of her whereabouts. Her father is deceased, but her mother and two sisters continue to search for her. Few details are available in her case, but foul play is suspected.
