Details of Disappearance
Starr lived with her boyfriend in Culver City, California in 1975. She moved back to her family's residence in Granada Hills, California in September of that year after her boyfriend was allegedly physically abusive towards her. According to her relatives, Starr had been living at her family's home for a week when her boyfriend forced his way into the family's home during the last week of September and abducted Starr at gunpoint. Starr's parents were not at the residence at the time, but one of her sisters stated that she saw Starr's boyfriend grab her around her neck and pull her over a small wall separating the family's property from the neighbor's residence. Starr has never been heard from again.
According to Starr's family, the Los Angeles Police Department took a police report shortly after Starr's abduction but never spoke to the family again. A year after Starr's disappearance, her father visited the police station to inquire as to the status of the case and was told that no incident report had been filed. The police initially refused to take a missing person's report because of the passage of time. Decades passed before they accepted the report.
Starr's family continues to search for her. Her sister Shari is married, but goes by her maiden name in case Candace tries to contact her.

I just came across her thread in the Missing Children In America Forum, and was blown away! This was a childhood playmate of mine in elementary school. She went by "Candy". We lost touch, I did not know she had disappeared. I can tell you I played at her house, and FWIW, she wallpapered her room in Donny Osmond posters. I can still remember her voice.
