On October 16, 1970, Pamela Lynn Conyers' family reported her missing to the Anne Arundel County Police Department. At the time, Conyers was 16 years old. Conyers ran an errand at the Harundale Mall at approximately 8:30 pm. When Miss Conyers did not return, she was reported missing to law enforcement. The vehicle Conyers was driving when she disappeared was recovered on Monday, October 19, 1970, in a wooded area near Mountain Road and Route 100, in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. During that time, the road was under construction. On Tuesday, October 20, 1970, Conyers' body was found a short distance from the vehicle.
