    It sounds like maybe she met someone at the club and they followed her home to drop off her parents car, then she left again with the person in their own vehicle. If anybody knew who she talked to that night, or saw her with anybody, there's a good chance it's a person who harmed her.

    i agree, dogperson, that's why i would like to know what club she was at and maybe the neighborhood where her parents lived. there were not a lot of "clubs" nearby on the okla side then or now, just a few beer bars that i remember. i would like to know where her parents lived to track her steps as far as we can. i will have to go back and look to see if the note she left specified if she was actually leaving with someone or just a general "be back later" type of note. the TimesRecord has brought this story to the surface so it seems like a wonderful time to dig in. maybe someone who saw her that night will come forward with any bit of information that could help.

    eta : so apparently the note did specify that she would be back in time for a 5pm work shift, wonder where she worked ... hmmmm 5pm shift on a sunday in 1982 .... Arkansas's blue law, or no sunday sales/labor law was struck down by the state leg in 1982 so where she would have gone to work is something i would like to know, just because literally nothing was open by that time of a sunday evening.

    May 17, 1982, Linda &#8220;Lindy&#8221; Reynolds left a Fort Smith, Ark., restaurant called Banditos where she worked as a waitress. She lived with her parents and got home about 10:30 p.m. but left again 30 minutes later.

    Sometime during the night, Reynolds brought her car home and wrote a note, which her mother, Nancy Reynolds, found the next morning. The note said Reynolds was spending the night with friends.

    When she didn&#8217;t pick up her paycheck or report for work the following day, Reynolds&#8217; boss called her parents, but they were in the dark as to her whereabouts, and the friends she had mentioned in her note said they had not seen her &#8230; she is still missing.
