I found this case in the newspaper archives, and can't find any indication that she was ever found. Here's a summary of the facts: Name: Elizabeth Lurene Ernstein Nickname: Liz Born: May 22, 1953 in Columbus, Ohio Hair: Brown, medium length and straight Eyes: Brown Height: 5'5" Weight: 105 pounds Date of disappearance: March 18, 1968 Age at time of disappearance: 14 Clothing and Jewelry: Blue dress with white flowers, tennis shoes, dark olive corduroy reversible coat (tan raincoat material on the other side), small gold chain around the neck with a pendant gold and blue star Circumstances of disappearance: Elizabeth attended school at Moore Junior High School in Redlands, California on the day of her disappearance. At 3:40 p.m. she began her walk home, a two-mile route through blossoming orange groves. She never arrived home. There are no clues as to what happened to Elizabeth, other than a report from a Redlands businessman who was driving through the area. He thought he saw a girl resembling Elizabeth walking toward the corner of the street on which she lived. Her parents, Norman and Ruth Ernstein, posted a $5,000 reward for information regarding Elizabeth's whereabouts. They also wrote to 10,000 newspapers across the country in order to publicize the story of Elizabeth's disappearance. Elizabeth was one of five Ernstein children. A son was lost to polio in 1952.
