    Ruth Egnoski, 18, Missing since 1966 from Delavan, WI

    Ruth Egnoski
    Missing since 1966 from Delavan, Walworth County, Wisconsin
    Classification: Endangered Missing

    Vital Statistics

    Age at Time of Disappearance: 18 years old
    Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Brown hair.

    Circumstances of Disappearance

    Ruth Egnoski disappeared in 1966. Private investigators hired by the family said she took a bus from Delavan to Chicago, but they lost her trail there.

    Police found Egnoski's driver's license and Social Security card in the custodian's office of Wileman Elementary School in Delavan in 1973. Her father worked there as a custodian.

    In 2002, police dug a 12-foot-wide pit behind 1014 Center St., Delavan, the house Egnoski lived in since it was built in 1962. Her family sold the home in 1971. Police found a crawl space under the family room of the house but no evidence connected to Egnoski's disappearance.

    I can't find a NamUs profile for her. Any idea what color her eyes are?

    I wish we knew more about Ruth...she's not in NAMUS, no information on height, weight...eye color. Might be helpful to know when she left or even if anyone knows or suspects why.
    Though Delaware is a long way from Wisconsin...it sounds like she made it at least as far as Chicago. In March of 1967, Delaware police discovered the body of a pregnant young woman dumped by the side of the road. Could she have run off because she was pregnant? Police don't think she died of foul play but rather some sort of illness or potentially even an infection from an abortion attempt...

    It seems to me her father was involved. Who takes a bus and leaves without their DL and SS card? Why would her father keep those items at his place of work and just leave them there? I wonder where they were found in the office...hidden? And the 2 suitcases found in the ceiling? Perhaps they were hidden there so it would infer she packed and left home? Also, that LE would dig at the family home years later is telling.

    This is odd! My first instinct is that the father had something to do with it.

    Of course, it's possible he kept his daughter's DL and SSN at work because he felt they were more secure there. It's a possibility. But surely there are bank and home safety deposit boxes for these documents. Maybe she left everything behind because she wanted a new life?

    Do we know she was pregnant?

    The father may still be alive. I believe his name may be Robert G. The mother died in 2012. (Her name Nancy Ruth). If correct, Ruth was listed as a daughter that is still alive in her obituary.

    Based on another newspaper account I found that lists Ruth's aunt as "J Saucerman", I am quite sure that these are her parents. Two sisters Hesperus and Candie (Maggie) and a a brother also Robert are listed in her mother's obituary.

    Me too! I think they look a lot alike. Huntington Beach Jane Doe is thought to be an Italian-American woman from New York but it's possible that a) Jane Doe made up that backstory to tell to bar patrons, so she wouldn't be found or b) the bar patron who identified her as having that backstory is confusing her with someone else (or possibly made it up).

    Ruth has no identifiers in the system though, so it would be tough to rule her out. :(

    Sounds like the father had something to do with it, maybe with some hard pressing he will talk
