  • Details of Disappearance
    Cain departed from Bennigan's Restaurant in Clear Lake, Texas at approximately 1:30 AM on August 17, 1997. She was driving her 1992 tan Ford pickup truck with an extended cab and a camper shell back to her family's residence in Tiki Island at the time. One of Cain's friends saw her vehicle parked on the southbound shoulder of Interstate 45 between Exits 7 and 8 in La Marque shortly after she left the restaurant. The location is near Highland Bayou Park.

    According to her friend, Cain was last seen walking towards a 1993 or newer cherry-red Isuzu Amigo parked behind her truck on the shoulder. The Amigo is described as being in mint condition with a hardtop, dark-tinted windows, no chrome, rounded wheel wells and a spare tire mounted in the center rear. The driver of the Amigo is considered to be a possible witness in Cain's case and has yet to be identified. Cain has never been heard from again.
