Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Tracy was last seen on April 27, 1973 when she left her home to go to kindergarten at Bahia Vista School. She never attended school that day and failed to return home. The next day her family reported her missing. She has not been seen or heard from since.
Dozens of police officers and Explorer Scouts repeatedly searched the Canal neighborhood with the help of a Coast Guard helicopter, but there was no sign of the girl. A witness reported that a black or dark green car was slowing following the girl on Canal Street the day she vanished.
Tracy's parents offered a $500 reward for information leading to her recovery, and the Independent Journal offered another $1,000, to no avail.
Tracy lived at the old Bermuda Palms motel, at 737 East Francisco Boulevard with her grandmother and other family members. Her parents were separated.
The case is still active, but there are no suspects or persons of interest, and police still don't know whether the matter is a missing-person case or a homicide.
