Details of Disappearance
Grace Marie Reapp disappeared under suspicious circumstances with her daughter, Grace Noel Reapp , on June 6, 1978 from her residence located on Hanley Lane, Jericho, Vermont. On June 7, 1978, police in Jericho, Vt. received a call from Michael Reapp, who claimed that his wife and daughter were missing from their home. He also told them that Grace left a note, saying that she was leaving him and that he shouldn't go after her. Investigations revealed that Reapp had been having an extramarital affair and wanted out of his marriage with Grace. The marriage was troubled and Grace Reapp suffered physical abuse at her husband's hands.
Authorities believed that Grace and Gracie's disappearances were extremely suspicious from the onset of their investigation. Grace Reapp has never contacted her family since she was last seen on June 6, 1978. The pair is presumed murdered by Michael Reapp. In 1997 Reapp carjacked a man at gunpoint in Arizona. He shot himself rather than surrendering to police after the carjacking went bad.
