This week’s Flashback Friday is Tammy Dawn Risenhoover, an 18-year-old girl who disappeared from Tulsa, Oklahoma. Frustratingly little information is available here: we don’t know the exact date Tammy was last seen, only that it was sometime around early 1984. (Her NamUs profile gives the date as February 1.) Her family didn’t report her missing until 1990. Given the way police handled missing persons cases back then, and given that Tammy was an adult, there’s a good chance they wouldn’t have accepted a missing persons report in 1984 anyway.
The only thing that stands out, really, is that Tammy associated with a motorcycle gang at the time of her disappearance. She could quite well be anywhere in the country, or even in Canada or Mexico. Perhaps hidden somewhere among the many unidentified dead that populate the morgues and potter’s fields.
