  • Details of Disappearance
    Mary left her home in Honeydew, California around 10:00 in the morning on Saturday, December 10, 1977. She and her two young daughters, two-year-old Jessie Flo and one-year-old Fannie Fawn, left in the familyís red Opel station wagon to run some errands. They never returned home that evening.

    Approximately one month after they were last seen, their family station wagon was found abandoned a few miles from their home. It was found on a logging road with a broken gas line and groceries still in the car. There didnít appear to be any struggle near the car. At the time, Mary was living with her husband Byron McCray Stuart. She also had a daughter from a previous marriage.

    In 2009, the case was reopened. Investigators named Maryís husband, Byron, as the primary suspect in the disappearances. Byron died in 1996.
