    Alice Jefferson, from North Little Rock, was an Army wife at Fort Campbell in Kentucky. She was the mother of two children. Sometime between 1974 and 1975, Her husband, Lee Andrew Jefferson, who was not the children's father, came home and said his wife was gone. On the day of her disappearance no one picked her children up from school. They walked home, and beat on the door for a long time with no answer. Then, finally, the stepfather opened the door. He would not let the children into their bedroom. Alice's car was still in the driveway, her clothes still in the closet. Jefferson never filed a missing persons report. According to him, he thought his wife had gone to Nashville, as she had friends in the area. According to her daughter, Alice may have been afraid of her husband.

    After a couple of days, he packed some bags, loaded his step-children into the car, and drove them to their grandparents' home in North Little Rock. He left and never saw the kids again. Alice was never heard from again. Her Social Security number has not been used since that time.

    When Alice's parents tried to report her as missing the Kentucky and Tennesse police would not take a report, saying it was not in their jurisdiction. The U.S. Army opened an investigation into the disappearance in 2013. They exhausted all leads in the case and are not actively investigating. Foul play is possible.

    Other sites report her as missing in July 1974.

    Law enforcement didn't look into this case for 30 years? That is a travesty! I wonder if the home they were living in is Still Standing? Can they still find blood evidence in that bedroom? Or will they even try? This case really makes me angry! Not only does it appear to be another case of domestic abuse, no one has ever picked up and help this family find their loved one. For years!

    When Alice's parents tried to report her as missing the Kentucky and Tennessee police would not take a report, saying it was not in their jurisdiction. The U.S. Army opened an investigation into the disappearance in 2013. They exhausted all leads in the case and are not actively investigating.

    @Kimster - I feel the same way. I can't believe the Army and local law enforcement argued over jurisdiction. If Alice was married to a man in the US Army, she was a military dependent and the US Army was responsible for her. Someone at Fort Campbell needs to be answering some questions about the investigation for Alice. I wasn't able to determine if they were living in military housing or in the community. If she was living in military housing, the Kentucky and Tennessee police are accurate when they say they have no jurisdiction.

    An article from 2015

    https://katv.com/archive/arkansas-siblings-search-for-mother-missing-since-70s
    Arkansas siblings search for mother missing since 70's
    20-year-old Alice Fay Jones-Jefferson lived at Ft. Campbell Kentucky in 1974 with her two children, 6-year-old Paula, and 5-year-old Johnny, and her husband, Lee Andrew Jefferson. Sometime between 1974 and 1975, Lee Jefferson, who is not the children's father, comes home one day and says his wife was gone. But Jefferson does not file a missing persons report.

    Instead, after a couple of days, he packs some bags, loads his small step-children into the car, and drives them to their grandparents' home in North Little Rock. He leaves, never to see the kids again. And Alice is never seen again either. In fact, no one was officially even looking for her.

    "My grandparents called the police. Ain't nothing we can do, that happened in another state. They tried the Red Cross with no help, to avail. I assisted them in calling the Kentucky police. Told them what happened. That's not in our jurisdiction. Ok. I tried the Tennessee police. Not in our jurisdiction," said Alice's daughter, Paula, who is now a mother and grandmother herself. She says her grandparents did everything they could, but law enforcement turned a deaf ear.

    It wasn't until two years ago, nearly 40 years after the vanishing, when Paula got the help of a private investigator and the wheels began turning. The U.S. Army stepped in, confirming to us they opened an investigation, but that investigation turned cold.

    The Army tells us in an email, "At this point, we have exhausted all leads in the case and are not actively investigating. However, if new information is discovered, we stand ready to reopen the case and thoroughly investigate all credible information."

    But the mystery remains. What happened to Alice? A source tells us her Social Security number has not been used since that time, meaning she never got a job, never opened a bank account, never paid taxes. Her children believe they know what happened.

    "I believe Lee Andrew Jefferson killed my mother in the bedroom and dumped her body and he has gotten away with it," Paula said.

    Paula remembers that no one picked her and her brother up from school the day their mother vanished. They walked home, and beat on the door for a long time with no answer. Then, finally, her stepfather opened the door.

    "Looked like somebody had doused him with a bucket of water he was sweating so hard. He says to me, 'I'm sorry I overslept. I was asleep.' I didn't buy it," she said.

    Alice's daughters need some help. Someone needs to revive this cold case. The US Army should be ashamed of the way this was handled in 1974. She was married to Lee Andrew Jefferson who was on active duty at Fort Campbell. Alice was a military dependent when she disappeared.

    I have to wonder if those that were notified just shrugged their shoulders and figured that she was murdered by her husband and they didn't have any way of doing anything about it and "oh well". I mean, it sounds like nobody even cared about Alice at all and it pisses me off.
