Details of DisappearanceJackson was last seen leaving the Mariner's Harbor Motel (now the Conca D'Oro Motel) on Forest Avenue in the New York City borough of Staten Island on August 14, 1983. Her mother sent her out to purchase chicken wings, but Jackson never returned to their residence. She has not been heard from again. Andre Rand, a mentally incompetent convicted child sex offender from New York, is a prime suspect in Jackson's case. A photo of Rand is posted below this case summary. Jackson disappeared 12 days after Rand's release from a New York prison. He is also believed to be connected to the 1972 disappearance of Alice Pereia, among other missing persons' cases. There is speculation that Rand may have been involved in the 1977 New York disappearance of Audrey Nerenberg as well. He has been charged in the 1981 abduction of Holly Hughes. All of the girls vanished from the Staten Island area, with the exception of Nerenberg. Rand was previously convicted of the 1987 New York abduction of Jennifer Schweiger, whose remains were discovered near his former campsite on the grounds of the Willowbrook state mental facility. Volunteers continue to search the abandoned property twice a year for evidence related to Rand's other alleged victims, but nothing has been discovered. Willowbrook is two miles north of the area of Jackson's disappearance. Rand, whose birth name is Frank Rashan, has maintained his innocence in all charges against him. Jackson's case remains unsolved.
