    Diane Nguyen Robbins (13) - Seattle WA, 1985

    Missing Since: June 18, 1985 from Kennewick, Washington
    Classification: Non-Family Abduction
    Date Of Birth: October 29, 1971
    Age: 13 years old
    Height and Weight: 5'2, 90 pounds
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian female. Brown hair, brown eyes. Robbins has a one-inch scar on her forehead. She has Vietnamese features.

    Details of Disappearance

    Robbins left her family's residence in Kennewick, Washington on June 18, 1985 to visit friends in Seattle, Washington. She joined a 21-year-old friend, Molly A. Purdin, sometime during the day and both females were last seen in King County, Washington in the late afternoon hours. Robbins has never been heard from again.

    Purdin's body was discovered nearly one month later on July 12, 1985 off Index-Galena Road in King County. She was a victim of homicide; she had been raped and killed by a blow to the head. There has been no trace of Robbins. She was presumed to be a runaway until Purdin's remains were discovered.

    In the few years around the time of Purdin's murder and Robbins's disappearance, about a dozen other women in their teens and twenties went missing from the area, including Virginia Rambus and Darci Warde. Several of the missing women had links to prostitution, although Robbins was not one of those. Authorities believe a serial killer operating in the Seattle area was responsible for at least some of the women's disappearances.

    Foul play is suspected in Robbins's disappearance due to the circumstances involved in her case. Her disappearance and Purdin's murder remain unsolved.
