    It seems that Wilma Rae married Gaylord Vermaas on 20 June 1973 in Multnomha, Oregon. It seems probable that this was the Gaylord Vermaas born 1953, although his father (born 1928) was also Gaylord Vermaas. Gaylord Vermaas seems to be a serious criminal. http://mugshots.com/US-Counties/Oreg....70028973.html gives a summary of a long criminal record including an 11 year sentence in 1990 for racketeering activity and numerous charges for drug crimes. I think he is currently in jail. Whilst this proves nothing in respect of Wilma's disappearance, I would expect LE to look closely at a husband who is a serious criminal (and 6'2" and 205lbs as well).

    The Vermaas men Jr. and Sr. owned an ocean-bearing speedboat at the time of Wilma's disappearance. They used to sail down the US west coast for Mexico to buy drugs. I believe this info came out at their trial along with a photo of their boat. IF Wilma were ever on that boat and something happened to her, it would explain her subsequent disappearance and why no ever heard from her again. Both Vermaas men would not be forthcoming as to her whereabouts as that would involve mentioning a boat that was used in illegal activities.
