Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Viola Findley, accompanied by a friend, left Waterloo, Iowa, in the summer of 1983 to pay a visit to Ms. Findley’s family in Florida.
Findley’s three children remained in Iowa, and on September 1, 1983, Findley left her mother’s home in Daytona Beach to head back to Waterloo.
Ten days later, when Findley still hadn’t arrived in Iowa, family members in Florida were notified. Findley’s mother contacted Daytona Beach authorities to report her missing daughter. Viola Findley was never seen again.
Twelve years after her disappearance, her mother had a Presumptive Death certificate issued. The police closed her file and put it into storage, where it eventually was destroyed by a flood in the records room.
