    The Streeter/Levitt/McCall case is one of the most interesting unsolveds in the U.S. And it promises to stay that way, unfortunately.

    Many interesting facets: the famous (among case aficiandos) moss green van sighting; the rumored peeping tom/prowler reported in the neighborhood of the Levitt home that night; Suzie’s upcoming court testimony against graverobber friends; the entirely false lead that is the whole “buried under parking garage” notion; the authority-discredited but very possibly accurate George’s Steakhouse sighting; the interesting arrest & charges against a sibling in another case in another state, etc. Oh, also, the frustrated LE guy who said half-seriously it might be a UFO abduction.

    I was stationed in Charleston, SC with the Coast Guard when Kimberly Boyd, her mother, Sarah, and a friend, Linda McCord went missing. They had photographs of all three in the newspapers and I also remember that a credit card from one of them was used in a department store some months after they went missing.

    At least, I think it was them. Yes, I’m pretty sure it was them.

      is that the one where they were “supposedly” dropped off at a Wal Mart by the husband’s family?

    Danielle Sparpana and her mother in 1985

      Her mother didn’t disappear; she was found dead in their home.

        I grew up next to Danielle’s grandparents in Wyoming, MI. I remember her visiting often before they moved to CA. Such a sad situation as she was a beautiful lively little girl. Her grandparents kept the spare room decorated for her in her honor and hopes that she would some day be found.
