On 09/21/1985, Debra left her boyfriend's house headed for her new apartment on Jarales Road in Belen, NM but may have never arrived. Investigators found her door open but nothing was disturbed in the apartment. Five months later, in February 1986, her car was found at an Albuquerque apartment complex.
Debra had recently divorced, started a new nursing job at Lovelace, and had bought her dream car (1978 Porsche). (Information retrieved from NamUs.gov)
