Details of Disappearance
Clark left a cousin's home in Oakland, California to drive back to her family's residence in San Francisco, California on March 16, 1990. She was driving her boyfriend's Chevrolet Camaro, which she had trouble starting when she left; it kept stalling. The car apparently stalled again on the San Francisco Bay Bridge sometime during the evening. Another car collided with Clark's vehicle prior to 12:00 a.m. Police arrived just six minutes later and found that Clark was not inside the vehicle after the accident.
Assuming that the impact of the collision swept her into the water below, the U.S. Coast Guard dragged the bottom of the Bay. Clark was not located and neither were her clothes. No blood, hair or oil residue was found in her vehicle either. Her mother has stated that she received a phone call approximately one week after Clark disappeared from a young woman she believes was her daughter. The girl was crying on the line for approximately 40 seconds before the call was terminated; authorities were unable to trace the source. The majority of officials maintain that Clark drowned the night of the car accident, but her case remains classified as that of a missing person.
Some witnesses reported seeing an African-American man looking under the Camaro. Others saw the man leaving the scene. No one saw Clark's body going over the bridge railing. Her bracelet, which she never removed, was found on the passenger side floorboard along with her car keys. The man who ran into Clark's car was tried for vehicular manslaughter, but acquitted for lack of evidence proving Clark was in fact dead.
Some reports may state that Clark resided in San Bruno, California. She was a high school senior in 1990. She enjoyed swimming and dancing, and ran on her school track team. Her case remains unsolved.
