Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Alice Jefferson was last seen in Fort Campbell, KY, in 1975.
Jefferson, from North Little Rock, was an Army wife at Fort Campbell in Kentucky. She was the mother of two children. Sometime between 1974 and 1975, Her husband, Lee Andrew Jefferson, who was not the children's father, came home and said his wife was gone. On the day of her disappearance no one picked her children up from school. They walked home, and beat on the door for a long time with no answer. Then, finally, the stepfather opened the door. He would not let the children into their bedroom. Alice's car was still in the driveway, her clothes still in the closet. Jefferson never filed a missing persons report. According to him, he thought his wife had gone to Nashville, as she had friends in the area. According to her daughter, Alice may have been afraid of her husband.
After a couple of days, he packed some bags, loaded his step-children into the car, and drove them to their grandparents' home in North Little Rock. He left and never saw the kids again. Alice was never heard from again. Her Social Security number has not been used since that time.
When Alice's parents tried to report her as missing the Kentucky and Tennesse police would not take a report, saying it was not in their jurisdiction. The U.S. Army opened an investigation into the disappearance in 2013. They exhausted all leads in the case and are not actively investigating.
Foul play is possible.
