    Circumstances of Disappearance

    Meeker was last seen on July 7, 1979 in Tacoma, Washington. Angela Meeker, who had run away from home in the past, disappeared on her way to the Tacoma Mall to buy a birthday card for a friend. Since, there have been no contacts or verified sightings of Meeker. Foul play is suspected.

    Police did little investigating at first because of the teenager's history of running away and truancy. It wasn't until two years later that she was formally listed as a missing person.

    At first I didn't think this photo from Rodney Alcala's collection looked like her but then I looked at the chin and I think this could be a match! Does anyone know if Angela still has family living and if so, have they seen this photo?

    ETA-
    If the timeline below is correct and if this is Angela - she disappeared July 7th, 1979 (two days before her birthday) - Alcala would have made a trip to Washington State between the two things that happened below in California. Very possible. Here is the info and a link to the site:

    June 20, 1979
    – Robin Samsoe, 12, disappears near the Huntington Beach Pier. Her body is found 12 days later in the Sierra Madre foothills.


    July 24, 1979
    — Rodney James Alcala, an unemployed photographer, is arrested at his parents’ Monterey Park home.

    Okay well, I called about this and kept getting referred to different people. So I ended up leaving a voice mail on the last number and am waiting for a call back.

    woo hoo! Got a call back - that was fast! - and I emailed this off.
    If nothing else, they can rule them out as being the same person!
    Will update if I hear back.

    Hi Unique1965!
    Thank you for posting that info. Is there any more information, a facebook page, or any other place we can gather information from (that we don't already have)?
    Angela caught my eye mostly because we are the same age and I had a friend go missing a year later (she was found murdered) so I know it's difficult! I'm sorry for your pain. Anything ideas what we can do to help?
    Thank you!

    So HEARTBREAKING.

    Given the date she went missing I wouldn't rule out Alcala as the monster that picked her up. He was in a frenzy after the heat was on for the Robin Samsoe murder and before his arrest, he did drive up to Washington to lock up his "sick stash" during that time frame.
    Praying for Kyron. He needs to be with his loving family.

    Where is Angela Meeker? Missing 34 years this week.

    Angela was last seen at the Tacoma Mall in the 1700 block of south 41st Street in Tacoma, Washington on July 7, 1979, two days before her fourteenth birthday. She had gone to the mall to buy a birthday card for a friend, and never returned home.
