Carol was last seen at approximately 12:00am by a family member while at her residence in the 17600 block of Cranbrook Avenue in Torrance, CA.
On April 6, 1981 her vehicle, described as a red 1979 Audi Fox, was found abandoned at the Red Onion Restaurant parking lot in Redondo Beach, CA. Carol's belongings were left at the residence and she did not pick up her last two paychecks.
Lubahn's credit cards and Social Security number have never been used, and her body has never been found.
She had been married 10 years, had two children and lived in the 17600 block of Cranbrook Avenue.
Michael Lubahn Clark confessed im 2014, telling a prosecutor and detectives that he killed the 26-year-old woman in a rage at home. He hid her body in their garage, and later rolled it in carpet and tied it to cinder blocks and submerged it off the Rancho Palos Verdes coast along with her clothing.
Clark, 59, confessed in the hours before he was set to be sentenced to prison for 15 years to life. Jurors, presented with weeks of testimony showing inconsistent statements that Clark made over the years, convicted him of second-degree murder in a few hours.
