Tracy Ann Byrd (14) - Bensalem PA, 1983


Missing Since: March 7, 1983 from Bensalem Township, Pennsylvania
Classification: Endangered Missing
Date Of Birth: July 7, 1968
Age: 14 years old
Height and Weight: 5'0, 70 - 95 pounds
Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian female. Strawberry-blonde hair, blue eyes. Tracy's ears are pierced.
Clothing/Jewelry Description: A shirt and jeans.
Medical Conditions: Tracy may have been pregnant at the time of her disappearance, but this has not been confirmed.

Details of Disappearance

Tracy's mother's boyfriend, Paul W. Greenwald, dropped her off at school in Bensalem Township, Pennsylvania on the morning of March 7, 1983. She was not allowed to attend classes because she had been suspended from school, but she had not told her family of this.

After she was dropped off, Tracy tried to get her friends to skip school with her but they would not. She disappeared afterwards and has never been heard from again. After her disappearance rumors circulated that she had been pregnant, but this has not been confirmed. There were several possible sightings of her in the local area after she vanished, but none of them were substantiated and police believe they may have been of a girl who only resembled her.


Tracy's mother, Jean Louise Byrd, disappeared seven months after Tracy was last seen. Jean's body was located on October 18, 1983 in Blackbird State Forest in New Castle County, Delaware. She had been strangled. Jean had last been seen 11 days prior in her son's apartment complex in Bensalem Township. She ended her relationship with Greenwald before her disappearance; he was later convicted of her murder. Greenwald was never connected with Tracy's disappearance, however, and it is not known if the two cases are related. Greenwald was found dead in his prison cell before he was sentenced in March 1986.
