    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Carol Lynn Roberts left Sanford, Florida on August 13, 1976 and has not been heard from since.
    It is believed that Roberts left Sanford with a white male subject to avoid prosecution on a check fraud case involving the pair. The couple left Sanford in Roberts’ 1974 canary yellow Chevrolet Corvette.
    On August 19, 1976, the male received a traffic citation in Blythe, California. It is unknown if Carol was in the car the day the citation was issued.
    A short time later, at an unknown date and time, the male subject was arrested in Canada on the outstanding check charge and returned to Sanford. The Corvette was returned to the family of Roberts’ who then returned it to the finance company. No record of the car can be found due to the “old style” 13-digit VIN number.
    While in custody, the male stated to the mother of Carol Roberts and investigators that the two had been involved in an argument and Carol exited the vehicle in Red Rock, or Red Bluff, Arizona. The male provided no further information on the whereabouts of Carol Lynn Roberts and to this day will not cooperate with the investigation.
