Home » Rhonda Burse, 21: Last Seen Getting Into A Car In 1977
A young dancer from Washington disappeared in 1977, and very little has been shared about her case. Rhonda Burse was a 21-year-old young lady who often worked as a topless dancer in the Seattle, Washington, area, and on August 8, her life changed. On that day in the city of Burien, Rhonda worked her shift at a venue called Flame, and later, she was seen getting into a vehicle. Rhonda was never heard from again.
According to reports, Rhonda Burse regularly danced at various clubs and bars in Seattle, Colorado, and Texas. However, none of the reports specified the exact cities or locations other than Flame. Additionally, the description of the vehicle she was last seen getting into hasn’t been shared, at least not publicly, and details regarding her relationships, including romances and family ties, are unknown.
The photo in the article showing Rhonda in her hat (above) was reportedly taken on the afternoon she went missing, making it the last picture of the young dancer before she vanished.
At the time of her disappearance, Rhonda Burse stood 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighed 110 pounds. She had brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a blue and white striped top, blue jeans (cut-off), a straw hat, two gold chain necklaces, small gold earrings, and four large rings described as “expensive.” She used the alias “Lisa Fisher,” the last name “Weeks,” and her middle name is “Louise.” Rhonda would be 65 years old at the time of this publication. Her fingerprints and DNA are reportedly available, but her dental records are not.
Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to contact the King County Sheriff’s Office at (206) 296-4155 or their local authorities. Her agency case number is 77122703.
