    Mabel Tresner was 80 years old when she was last seen in the summer of 1993. Originally, investigators believed that she had a medical problem, became confused and left. More recently, they announced that they now believe she was possibly the victim of foul play.

    Details of Disappearance
    Tresner was last seen at her mobile home in the 100 block of northeast 15th Terrace, off Baker Road, in Jensen Beach, Florida on August 16, 1993. She disappeared overnight and has never been heard from again. She lived alone at the time of her disappearance and was in good physical and mental health. On the morning of August 17, a friend went to pick her up to take her to the Jesus House of Hope thrift shop, where she was a volunteer. No one was home. Later that day, her daughter went to her home and found it deserted. The front door was unlocked and Tresner's purse, car keys, clothes, jewelry, dentures and eyeglasses were inside the house. Tresner's bed was made up and her sandals lay on the floor next to the bed, and her bathroom was also in a neat condition.

    An extensive search of the area turned up no sign of Tresner, although witnesses reported seeing an elderly woman in a nightgown walking along U.S. 1 near the Roosevelt Bridge in Stuart, Florida at 1:00 a.m. on August 17. She has never been heard from again. Tresner was reportedly very concerned about her appearance and it would be uncharacteristic of her to leave home without putting on her shoes, dentures and glasses. Although authorities initially believed she had a medical problem, became confused and wandered away from the house, foul play is now suspected in her disappearance.

    This lady was so tiny, the size of a child. I wonder if the witness who saw the elderly woman walking along the highway took note of her height and build. Has Mabel Lee been declared legally dead? If so, is anyone benefiting from her demise?

    I couldn't have passed an elderly woman walking in her nightgown along a highway in the wee hours of the morning without alerting someone. Heck, I'd stop my car right there and then! This just doesn't sound right. Someone needs to gather their courage after 22 years and start talking.

    I agree. I would have stopped and if she didn't want to get in car to be taken some where I would have dialed 911 asap and kept her in sight. Some one needs to step up.
