Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Cynthia Hernandez went by herself to catch a movie at the Fox Twin Theaters in Covina on August 26, 1976.
Early the next morning, her family found the Chevrolet station wagon she used parked behind the Azusa Avenue theater. It was unlocked and backed into a parking spot. But Cynthia hasn't been seen since.
Police deemed the disappearance suspicious from the beginning since the car was left behind and Hernandez had no reason to run away. No one has used Hernandez's driver license, name or Social Security number in the years since she vanished.
Hernandez came from a family with three children. She was a recent graduate of Charter Oak High School when she went missing.
In 2016 Larry James Allred was charged with the murder of Cynthia May Hernandez. Allred is currently serving eight years at the California Institution for Men in Chino on unrelated charges.
