  • Details of Disappearance
    Georgia Weckler was dropped off at the end of her driveway by the mailbox after school. Georgia didn't make it up the driveway and was reported missing by her father. A black Ford was seen backing down her lane toward State Highway 12. Georgia Jean was never seen again.

    Later that year, notorious 20th-century villain Buford Sennett allegedly confessed to abducting and killing her. But his claims were never verified and he later recanted his story. A Missouri man serving a life term in Nebraska also confessed to killing Georgia Jean with an accomplice in 1954, but his story didnít check out, either.
