  • Details of Disappearance
    Laxer returned to her residence in North Hollywood, California after a doctor's appointment sometime during August 1997. She was reportedly a patient of the same doctor who treated Robert Black, who disappeared in 1996, and Goldie Swanger and Richard Davison, both of whom vanished in 1997. All four missing persons disappeared either en route or upon returning from appointments with the same physician. It is not known if the cases are otherwise connected in any way and all the disappearances remain unsolved.
