  • Details of Disappearance
    Paula Pope, her husband Steven, and their friends were camping at the Cripple Creek Campground near Fresh Pond, in El Dorado County. It was Labor Day weekend in 1972.

    She had an argument with her husband. She wanted to go to a rock concert in Carson City. Steve couldn't go because he was on parole and he couldn't leave the state. Paula stormed out of the camper.

    Her friend April went after her, but went back to get her coat as it was raining. When she went out again, she couldn't find Paula. No one has seen her since.
