    Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
    • Missing Since: July 1, 1989 from Milton, Pennsylvania
    • Classification: Endangered Missing
    • Date of Birth: April 23, 1959
    • Age: 30 years old
    • Height and Weight: 5'4, 125 pounds
    • Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian female. Light brown hair, brown eyes.

    Details of Disappearance
    Miller was dropped off at a bar in Milton, Pennsylvania during the morning hours of July 1, 1989. She was planning to attend the wedding of a friend later in the day and was carrying a gift, as well as her clothes for the event. She apparently attended the ceremony and was photographed there, though some accounts state that she never arrived at the wedding. Miller is believed to have returned to her home in Sunbury, Pennsylvania during the early morning hours of July 2. She resided on Penn Street with a former police detective, Joseph Walter "Mike" Egan, who reported her missing. She has never been heard from again.

    Prior to Miller's disappearance, she was a police informant and provided authorities with information about drug trafficking. She had received threatening letters from people who warned him to stop talking to authorities or she would be killed. About two weeks before Miller went missing, she told investigators that the matter had been taken care of and asked them to give back the letters she'd passed on to them. It is unclear whether Miller's work as an informant or the death threats were related to her later disappearance.

    Egan served time in state prison after Miller's disappearance, convicted of extortion. He initially cooperated with the authorities investigating Miller's case but later refused to meet with them. Investigators haven't said whether Egan is a suspect in her case. Miller left behind a young son. Authorities searched several mines in Augusta Township, Pennsylvania during the years following her disappearance, and searched a pond near Trevorton, Pennsylvania in 2004. She is believed to be the victim of a homicide. She was declared legally dead in the fall of 2002.

    Some agencies may list July 2, 1989 as the date of Miller's disappearance, which remains unsolved.

    Probe in 1989 cold case gets new life

    SUNBURY — A team of Northumberland County officials has formed an investigative alliance into the death of Barbara Miller, a 30-year-old Sunbury woman who vanished in 1989 and was declared dead in 2002.

    [...]

    District Attorney Tony Matulewicz, Coroner Jim Kelley and Detective Degg Stark will begin reviewing the case immediately.

    [...]

    Kelley said he contacted the district attorney’s office and Stark last week about the case.
    “This is a case that is lingering, and we all want to find answers,” Kelley said.

    [...]

    “I said this was a case I wanted to look at, and we are,” Matulewicz said Friday. “I spoke with Degg (Stark), and we will be requesting the evidence boxes to be in the possession of the district attorney’s office for review.”

    “I will not discuss details, but I can tell you we are going to be taking a long, long look at this. I want everyone to know I will be looking at every single thing in this case, and it is not something that will be solved overnight,” Matulewicz said.

    I hope they find out what happened and justice is served. There is also an Elizebeth Miller who was killed by her bf and didn't get justice in johnstown pa. The lawer and her dirt bag bf convinced the jury it was an accident. He stabbed her and fled without taking her to a hospital or calling 911. IT doesnt sound like an accident to me.
