    Catherine Sjoberg disappeared from her prom in the early morning hours of June 5, 1974. She has not been seen since. She supposedly went outside for some fresh air. The Prom was held at the Concord House in Concord WI. I wonder if anyone knows what her prom date said happened or if there are any friends of Cathys who have any idea what could have happened that night. The area is pretty desolate and I wonder how well it's ever been searched. There doesn't seem to be too much info out there on this case.

    I just ran across an article about Catherine while researching another missing person. The article I read indicated her disappearance might be connected to the deaths of two other young women. I believe the connection is that all three of them were last seen at Concord House. The article I read did not name the other two women, and a NewspaperArchives search didn't turn up anything.

    I'm going to dig around a little and see if I can uncover anything else about this. There certainly doesn't appear to have been much media coverage.

    This is my first message so please be patient with me. Catherine Sjoberg missing from concord wisconsin. This is only about 10 miles from where I live and I read that two teenage girls went missing from the same place. I know that is was a man and a woman. They were at a wedding at the Concord house and there last name were Hack and Drew not sure on the spelling of Hack. If anyone knows there first names please post. I believe they are connected.

    From what I understand the other two disappearances were several years later and the 2 peoples bodies were found later at a place other than the Concord House. I seem to remeber that they also were high school students but cannot find any info about them. This is the first time I'v heard their names thanks. From what I have read elsewhere Catherine's mother thinks the cases are related as well.

    Their names were Timothy Hack and Kelly Drew. They were both 19 years old and were dating. They attended a wedding reception at the Concord dance hall on Aug 9, 1980, the same place Catherine Sjoberg vanished from six years earlier. They left saying they were meeting friends in Ft Atkinson, Wi, fifteen miles away. They never made it to their car. Two and a half months later their skeletal remains were found about nine miles from the dance hall. Tim was still dressed in his suit he wore to the wedding. Kelly was naked and had been bound with rope.

    I agree with the previous poster - maybe the law firm woman is the missing woman's niece? It would make sense for a sibling to name their child after their missing sibling.

    Well if you click on Catherines name it brings you to her bio. And it looks like she goes by the name Trina. So she possibly was named after the real Catherine. Also she graduated from law school in 1999. So that would make her about 30ish right now.

    Maybe I'm not seeing something obvious, but where did it say she was 50 ?

    Thanks so much for remembering her. I am from this area, although not around when this happened. Her mother is still searching for her...
