Ila “Veronica” Tucker Maynard disappeared from Greensboro, North Carolina on December 4, 1974. When the seventeen-year-old was last seen leaving her father’s house in a gold 1971 Nova she was wearing clothing typical for the time period: platform shoes, a Cleopatra coat, and blue pants.
Of course those details might only be helpful if remnants of fabric were found along with human remains, as the opinion of the family and authorities appears to be that Veronica passed away decades ago.
The prevailing theory is that her husband, Julian, was responsible for her death but there was never enough evidence to file any charges.
The husband died in 2004 and with little hope that Veronica is still alive, the goal in finding her body is simply to give her a proper burial.
