A $20 American Express traveler's check of Stephen's was cashed in Mendocino County's Westport CA store on 20 June 1974. Stephen had $800 in traveler's checks, but that was the only one negotiated. When Linda Lovell's mother reported her missing on 15 July 1974 in Missoula MT, it became apparent Stephen was also missing. On 15 August 1974, Stephen's godfather reported him missing to the Marin County Sheriff's Office (Stinson Beach is in Marin County).
