    On Wednesday, August 16, 1972 Dolores House went to the Westland Shopping Center, located at 10403 West Colfax Avenue, Lakewood, Colorado, to run an errand.

    House later called her residence, which was located in the Green Mountain area, and informed her daughter that she was having car trouble and she would be home within a half an hour. House was never seen or heard from again.

    House's vehicle was later located in the Westland Shopping Center parking lot. Witnesses reported seeing House's vehicle, described as a 1967, Oldsmobile, Vista Cruiser, being towed into the Westland Shopping Center parking lot by a white over maroon, Ford Bronco. The unidentified driver of the Bronco was described as a white, male, between 5'11" to 6'00" tall, weighing 160 pounds, with dark blonde hair, graying and thin on top.

    Soon after the Bronco left the area, no one ever saw House again. Foul play is suspected.

    Kat,

    Probably not her, but this UID female found in Jefferson County, CO in 1972 seems similar...although the age and estd dod are far off. Just caught my attention that it was eleven days after Dolores went missing and in the same county. Which is why the age & estd dod is throwing me.

    Thanks

    i wonder if she ever made it to the shopping center. and why was her car being towed there? if she met with foul play on the way to her errand then why would the perp tow her car and risk being seen when he could just as easy left it where he found it. surely where ever he was towing it from somebody saw him hooking it up. somebody knows what happened to this woman and is keeping quiet. someone besides whoever took her. that person needs to come forward and let this family have some peace. jmo, imo, mho and all that jazz ;)

    Would that be because she has been identified? Isn't Doe Network for the unidentified? Since they now know who it is it would make sense that it is no longer on there I think.

    Yes, but i read that link in posting #1 has having another meaning than it was just her listing on the Doe network when she was unidentified. So I was letting the poster kow it has been removed. I normally dont see a listing for the doe network under a identified persons name/case.

    Apparently, and guessing here at one time this case was in the unidentified section of websulthes, then when the remains were I identified the title above was changed to...and moved to cold cases. I thought there was additional information about this now cold case that was relevant at the doe network and was letting it known it was removed.
