Barbara Peterson, 18: Went Missing In 1977

Barbara Peterson

Many may recall the summer of 1977 as a time of bell bottoms, afros, and unforgettable music. However, in Dallas, Texas, Barbara Peterson would vanish, and all these decades later, the most anyone has said about her is just one sentence.

Barbara was last seen in the city on July 16. What the 18-year-old was doing at the time remains a mystery. Almost nothing is known about the case, nor have details about Barbara’s life been detailed. It is unclear if she was still in high school or a graduate, and it isn’t stated in reports if she was working. Where she was living is also difficult to learn, but it is assumed that she was from Dallas.
