Details of Disappearance

Allegedly, she was  last seen by her "boyfriend".  

They parted ways and he watched her walk into Recreation Park on her way home.  

There is also the possibility that Barb attended a party later that evening.

She has never been seen or heard from again.

She left behind her paycheck from work, all of the money in her savings account and all of her personal belongings.

Within 3 months of Barb's disappearance, 2 of the 3 persons of interest (1 of them being Barb's "boyfriend") committed suicide while in jail for crimes that were not directly related to Barb and do not appear to be related to one another.

The 3rd person of interest is a family member that is now deceased but still on law enforcement's list.
