Circumstances of Disappearance
Pandos was last seen in the Kingsmill area of Williamsburg, Virginia on February 10, 1987. Jennifer apparently left in the middle of the night through a sliding glass door on the patio.
In a note to her parents, she said she would be back in a few days and not to worry.
Pandos left her Kingsmill home, perhaps distraught over a recent break-up with her boyfriend. She never came back. All she took was her handbag.
Margie Pandos found a note, but it only raised more questions.
"Your daughter's with me. She's fine. She's having some problems and needs some time away," the note began.
Then, it switched to the first person: "I'm fine, I just need time to think. Both of you please go to work tomorrow cause I will try to call you. I won't call you at home, only at one of y'all's work.
"Do not call the police. I can easily find out if you do. I may never come back home. Don't tell my friends about this. Just tell them that I'm sick."
It didn't look like Jenny's handwriting, but police have guessed the left-handed girl might have written the note with her right hand. Margie Pandos said she and her husband followed Jenny's instructions at first, but then notified police when she didn't call. In the weeks and months that followed, family members knocked on doors and handed out fliers, trying to find people who might have seen the teenager.
