    Missing Since: November 1, 1973 from Modesto, California
    Classification: Endangered Missing
    Date Of Birth: October 4, 1959
    Age: 14 years old
    Height and Weight: 5'6, 115 pounds
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian female. Brown hair, blue eyes. Groenenberg has a surgical scar on her abdomen and a strawberry-type birthmark on her back. Some agencies give her first name as Connie.

    Details of Disappearance

    Groenenberg departed from her family's residence in the Compton, California area on November 1, 1973. A friend told authorities that Groenenberg walked to the highway near Modesto, California and began hitchhiking shortly afterwards. The friend saw Groenenberg enter a blue or green truck with an unidentified male driver. Groenenberg has never been heard from again.

    Groenenberg's family moved from southern California to the Compton area several weeks prior to her disappearance. Her mother was diagnosed with scleroderma, a tissue disease, shortly after Groenenberg vanished. Her parents were forced to leave the Modesto area as a result of her mother's condition. Groenenberg's parents have continued to own her childhood home in the southern part of the state. Her mother said that they hoped Groenenberg might return to see her former residence. Her case remains unsolved.

    Hi Irish Eyes! There definitely appears to be a similarity there, but at the time Corinne went missing, Alcala was in prison for his attack on Tali S.

    I came to this thread simply because it was a young girl missing from the 70's in California. I think of Alcala with every single one. Sure wish we could find out who those photos belong to and if they are still alive.

    I wonder what the guy who picked her up looked like. If they got a good enough look to tell that it was a man then they surely saw him well enough to give some sort of description.

    I'd like to know what he looked like, too. Lori Lee Kurtz and Jeannette Kamahale , both believed to be victims of the Santa Rosa Hitchhiker Killer , were each seen climbing into a vehicle driven by a Caucasian male who wore his brown hair in an Afro style.

    Something is off with the timeline/geography here. It's not possible to walk from a home in Compton (near LA) to a highway in Modesto, they are hundreds of miles apart.

    Also it said the family moved from Southern California to Compton, which I believe is also an error because Compton is Southern California.

    How likely is it that the driver of a truck was not a man at that time? Is it possible that there was only a very vague glimpse of the driver and the witness simply assumed it was a man, especially given how common long hair was on both sexes during the early to mid 1970s?

    Thank you for thinking outside of the box. I think this is exactly what is needed.
