On the evening of July 7th, 1970, sixteen-year-old Denise Sheehy had an argument with her mother while the two were eating dinner. Upset, the teen got up and stormed out of the house taking no items with her. She started heading in an unknown direction.

Initially, it was believed that Denise was simply ran-away to cool off but after a few days her family and friends grew worried.and needed to cool off, but she never came back and no one has seen or heard from her since.
