    This one does not smell right to me. She disappears whilst hubby is on a camping trip (but LE have not confirmed he went on the trip) and hubby's grandfather (now deceased) starts spreading a story that she has headed off as she has shown such behaviour in the past. She left money and a property in her name and two children. All of this is at http://tdn.com/rainier-woman-presumed-dead/article_65301018-7c51-5f72-8cb7-2dc57cf4c7a9.html. The wider family had farming and logging interests so would be familiar with remote areas. It sounds, from the comments in the story, as though LE do not believe a word about her going off.

    Theresa (or Teresa according to the marriage record on Ancestry) married Richard G Murphy III in King, Washington in 1998. He took legal action to recognise the split in 2002 ( https://www.juralindex.com/civil/ri...details-0d5e450743f34814e19f133b7c88f031.html ) but I have not found a formal divorce. It also seems he may have a slightly complicated personal life (perhaps before the marriage) as there is a record of a further court case in 2001 where the Oregon Department of Human Resources opened a case against him listed as 'domestic relations registration foreign support' (https://www.juralindex.com/civil/or...details-e2f02006cf51e55c537e36e4aa6206e6.html ). This seems usually to mean enforcement of a foreign court order for child support or division of goods in a divorce - but if anyone can shed light it would be interesting.

    Theresa Ann Davidson-Murphy still missing on 19th anniversary of her disappearance


    On October 7, one week after Jessica’s 13th birthday, 35-year-old Terry drove her daughter to a friend’s house for a three-night sleepover. The friend happened to be Richard’s cousin’s daughter; the two girls had a volleyball game together the following day.

    “I gave her a hug and kiss and she was gone,” Jessica recalls.

    According to a statement by the Oregon State Police, Terry’s husband Richard would later tell the Oregon State Police that he saw Terry when she returned home from dropping Jessica off at the sleepover, but that he had left for a camping trip that night, shortly after Terry returned home.

    Dateline was unable to contact Richard Murphy for this report.

    The day after her volleyball game, October 9, Jessica called home from her friend’s house to tell her mother about the game.
