LANCASTER, PA — Pennsylvania State Police are asking for the public’s help in locating a missing person from 38 years ago.

Mary Ann Bagenstose was last seen at her home Tuesday, June 5, 1984, on West Willow Street in West Willow, Lancaster County. She told her mother that her estranged husband, Jere Bagenstose would be picking her up to go look at a car he was considering buying for her. That morning would be the last time she was ever seen.

Jere Bagenstose would tell police that he did go to the West Willow Road home that morning, but that Mary Ann wasn’t ready, so Jere Bagenstose took the couple’s 2-year-old son to Long Park to feed the ducks. Upon returning to the residence, Jere Bagenstose said that Mary Ann was gone, but had left a note saying that she was walking to a nearby Turkey Hill Minit Market since her car wouldn’t start.

The clerks at the store, who knew Mary Ann well, stated that they didn’t see her that day. She has never been heard from again. None of her personal belongings disappeared with her. Jere Bagenstose reported his wife missing later that night. An extensive search of the area turned up no sign of Mary Ann or any clues as to her whereabouts.

If you have any information on Mary Ann’s disappearance, please contact Pennsylvania State Police at (717) 299-7650.
