  • Details of Disappearance
    Lisa Dickinson was last seen on September 5, 1976, while riding her bike from her home on Los Cerros Avenue in Walnut Creek through Heather Farm Park on her way to the Pleasant Hill BART station.

    Lisa was supposed to return by 8:00 PM. When Lisa did not return home by that time, her parents began searching the area but were unable to find her. Mr. and Mrs. Dickinson then called the Walnut Creek Police Department and reported Lisa missing.

    A further search of the area was conducted by officers but Lisa was not located. However, Lisa's bike was located hidden under a walnut tree on the north side of Heather Farms Park.

    Several witnesses were contacted by officers who reported that on 9-5-76 at approximately 7:30 PM., they saw a man in his 40's, driving a medium size motorcycle on Ygnacio Valley Road at the intersection of Walnut Avenue. This location is approximately 2 blocks east of Heather Farm Park. Riding on the back of the motorcycle was a girl between 8-12 years old, who was wearing a white helmet.

    Subsequent investigation by officers determined that Louis Fresquez was the prime suspect in the kidnapping of Lisa Dickinson. However, officers were unable to develop enough evidence to file charges against Fresquez. Fresquez has been serving time in the California Prison system since 1987 for sex related crimes.
