Details of Disappearance
Stalnaker was last seen with her daughter, Mary Geneva Friend, at their residence in Lewis County, West Virginia during the evening hours of December 1, 1999. Police found no signs of violence or intruders at the house. Neither of the women has been heard from again.
The vehicle was located in Clarksburg on Route 19 close to the former Harrison County Bureau of Emergency Services near Gore, West Virginia. Again, there was no sign of foul play and no helpful evidence was recovered.A witness reported seeing two women matching Friend and Stalnaker's descriptions in Ohio in late June 2000. The witness claimed that the women sat near her in the bleachers during a race at an unspecified location. The tip has never been confirmed by authorities. In August 2007, law enforcement announced that a fisherman had found a purse with all of the information for both women in Stonewall Jackson Lake in 2002.
