Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
On November 19, 1992 Elsie Williams, Manning's aunt, was the last person to see Manning alive. Williams reported seeing her niece standing in front of the Chinn's Jewelry shop on North Third Street in Junction City. Manning was with a white male who was never identified. She was supposed to visit her aunt later that day, but never made it. Manning had lived with her aunt since she was 13.
At the time of her disappearance Anna was married to Anthony Manning. After marrying, she was distanced from her aunt and other family members. Manning had a two-year-old daughter at the time of her disappearance.
Previously, on April 16, 1992 Anthony B. Manning had turned himself into police after his estranged wife, Anna Manning, signed a warrant for his arrest on a charge of kidnapping. Anthony Manning was given 182 days in jail — 152 of those probated — for a charge of unlawful imprisonment.
While Manning has never faced charges for Anna's disappearance, he has not been ruled as a suspect.
A formal missing person’s report was filed on February 25, 1994.
Foul play is suspected.
