Prior to her disappearance Jeannette Drzewiecki was a dancer at Doll’s House, a strip club on Andrews Highway at the time. Her dancer name was “Cherry”. She had also recently taken a job as a waitress and had given birth just days prior to her disappearance.
On the evening of September 13, 1982 Drzewiecki went to Doll’s House in the North end of Odessa for a ‘meeting’ to discuss something with another worker (or her employer). She had a drink or two then said she was going to go home to her daughter. She was never heard from again.
A week later her vehicle, a red pick-up truck, was found abandoned in the South end of Odessa.
It’s been over 30 years since she went missing and authorities suspect foul play.
Most agencies and databases say give the above information however, NAMPN says “Drzewiecki made dinner, kissed her 11 day old daughter and husband goodbye, took the family’s truck and was never seen or heard from again. ”
Also, agencies have her down as 19 and others say she was 25 years old when she went missing.
Another case with similarities is that of Kathy Brownfield Goad missing from Dallas County just a couple of weeks after Drzewiecki.
