    And if her stepfather had kicked her out of the house as he claimed, why wouldn't she have went to her friends house in Akron?

    At that time her mother lived in Springfield, Ohio, which is halfway between Columbus and Dayton.

    The driving distance between Akron and Springfield is 172 miles.

    It would have taken her a little over 3 hours to drive from Akron to Springfield as the maximum speed limit on the interstates was 55 mph back then.

    There is a springfield township right outside of Akron and people around here just refer to it as Springfield.

    Also, why would he say that she left on foot but her car vanished shortly after her (if I'm not mistaking there was believed to be only one key to her car, no duplicates) and ended up destroyed at a junkyard before police could get to it?

    Thank you Owutatangledweb and Ice190 for the clarification. I didn’t realize that there is a Springfield Township outside of the Akron city limits in Summit County, Ohio.

    One of the Ohio.com newspaper articles that I read a few days ago mentioned Old Home Road in Springfield.

    I have been to Springfield in Clark County, Ohio before and indeed there is an Old Home Road in Springfield, Clark County, Ohio.

    I didn’t realize at the time that the Ohio.com newspaper article was talking about Old Home Road in the Akron area.

    I live in the Columbus area and whenever Springfield is mentioned to me, out of habit I’m thinking that someone is talking about Springfield over in Clark County.

    Owuta and Ice are absolutely right that Springfield Township outside of Akron is the correct location.

    After thinking it over, indeed it would have been a long drive for her to have made had she drove from Akron to Springfield in Clark County after having been up all night.

    I apologize to all for the confusion about Springfield.

    Again my thanks to Owuta and Ice for their clarifications.

    Nerosleuth, although I am well north of you, when I hear Springfield, Ohio I also generally think of the Springfield near you. But in this context, dealing with an Akron case, I assumed the other cuz I'm local. I would have done the same thing as you if this wasn't an Akron case.

    I made the same mistake as Nerosleuth since I was born and raised in Springfield, Ohio. (Clark County)

    Tricia had to postpone the interview. She wasn't feeling well.

    Strongsville Jane Doe was found 43 years ago today, this will likely be the last anniversary she'll spend under the pseudonym.
