  • Details of Disappearance
    Jeffrey and his mother had made plans to travel to Greece to meet his grandparents who were already there on vacation.

    Family members became concerned when it was evident that mother and son never arrived in Greece.

    Glenn Bagley, the Blankinships' landlord, said he'd taken them to Sea-Tac Airport to catch a plane to Greece. There was no record of them flying, and Althea's passport for herself and her son was not used. It was left behind among her things. Althea was having a romantic relationship with Bagley at the time. A previous ex-wife of Bagley, Esther Mae Gesler, disappeared in 1976.

    They have not been heard from or seen since. Investigators have Althea's DNA and also DNA from Jeffrey's father, who died years ago and was not a suspect.
