Cynthia Dawn Constantine
OAKDALE, NY — Cynthia Constantine was fifteen when she vanished on July 11, 1969, one week after celebrating Independence Day a.k.a ”4th of July.”. She went to take her dog for a walk along the railroad tracks not far from her Suffolk County home, shortly after the dog came home alone with the leash/collar still attached. Cynthia was nowhere in sight and forty-three years later her case remains unsolved. Searches turned up no clues and Cynthia’s disappearance was all over New york newspapers and her story made its way to other states and although callers phoned in tips, none of them were able to lead police to Cynthia or a potential suspect.
Cynthia’s loved ones believe she was abducted and the victim of foul-play and say she did not and would not run away nor did she bring any possessions with her, like an extra pair of clothes, etc. She vanished in broad-daylight near the Montauk highway over pass bridge. Many vehicles were on the road that day and someone had to have witnessed something but never came forward or didn’t realize the significance of what they saw.
