Details of Disappearance

Owens last seen in Clearwater, Washington on July 1, 1981. That night, she left her family's home to babysit an infant at a house ten miles away. When the baby's mother returned home that evening, Owens was gone and the baby was alone. A broken, blood-spattered Galliano liquor bottle was on the floor. Owens has never been heard from again. The blood at the house matched her type, but DNA testing was not available in 1981 and so the stains were not definitively linked to her.

Authorities have a suspect in the case, a transient logger named Ken Barry. Broken glass from a Galliano bottle and bloodstains were found in his pickup truck. Barry died suddenly in 1987. He was never charged in Owens's case, but in 2007 authorities stated they would test the stains from his truck to see if they were from Owens's. Owens's case remains unsolved.
