Details of Disappearance Van Buren was last seen in Fort Lauderdale, Florida sometime in mid-October 1978. She has never been heard from again. Although she apparently didn't leave in her vehicle, after her disappearance, her car, a gold and black 1968 Plymouth Fury with the Florida license plate number 10-3799, could not be located.
Until the month she disappeared, Van Buren lived in the 1400 block of southwest 30th Street with her sister-in-law, an invalid she was caring for. In October 1978, the house was sold and Van Buren's sister-in-law moved in with a relative. Van Buren planned to find another place to live.
Van Buren wasn't reported missing for several months; her neighbors eventually contacted the police after an extensive time period passed without them having heard from her. Foul play is suspected in her case, which remains unsolved.
